Slackmaster, at first I thought Volek got shafted but after thinking this through I'm beggining to think just the oppositite. The Titans could have and with hind sight should have brought Collins in at the start of camp with the idea of the best man winning the starting job. However, they didn't bring in anyone and basically gave Volek the starting job. It was his to lose for this year. Volek didn't respond the way they had hoped. Certainly the coaches didn't want or expect this to happen. IMO they gave Billy his shot. With that said I'm not sure the coaches are all that sold on Collins being the starting QB this year. With Volek not proving himself it looks like Young will have a shot at playing alot this year. Would it be better to say to Billy now that he is being demoted to a backup role or to let him move on? Either way Volek is going to be upset, there is going to be friction and Young ends up not being mentored. Collins gives them both a mentor (with significant experience as an NFL QB) and insurance. Look at this from Chow's and Fisher's point of view. Both are on the hot seat. First of all they want a QB who can run their offense. Believe it or not, agree with it or not, both don't think Volek is the guy. He has been given the opportunity and he failed in their eyes. They are the ones accountable at seasons end. If they feel like Collins can do a better job of playing QB, mentoring Young and helping this team in the long and short term I stand by their decision. Do what is best for the team. I don't feel sorry for Volek. He will make over a mil per year wherever he ends up (he will be somewhere) and may even get another shot again.
