Why was Vince put in the game?

  1. He was put in to rest Collins, maybe punish Collins

    Vince Young enters a loosing game in the 4th quarter. Every news reporter stated that Young looked at the scoreboard before entering the game. One reporter stated that it looked to him like Vince didn't want to go in when approached by the Offensive Coordinater. I didn't see it, but it fits Vinces' m.o.
    My question is; was Vince put in to take Collins out, or was he put in to get him ready to take over the starting role, or was he put in to increase his value for a future trade?
    Personally, I believe this is his last year as a Titan. It would cost too much money for something that has not paid back any dividends. If that's true, will the Titans shop FA for a younger QB to take Collins position away, or look to the draft. Or possibly both.

    If you were Vince, and got thrown into a game during garbage time, wouldn't you be pissed? I'd be #$%@#$% livid...which would have gotten worse when they pulled me out on 4th down and wouldn't let me go for it.
    Honestly people, WTF do you all think that it's so taboo to show any sort of emotion on the field? They're humans, not $#@%^$% robots. :irked:

    The correct answer isn't listed. He was put in because the fans were calling for it. Jeff finally gave the fans what they were asking for. I was just pissed that they thought it was a joke, and waited too long to do this. I like Vince and think he's an answer.

    Evincetually Jeff will get that and stop kissing Collins behind the scenes.

    The only reason they put VY in.. was to keep the fans in the seats. More fans there are in the seats, the more money the coliseum can potentially make, whether its on concessions or merchandise. After every series, whether it was a Titans or Colts possession, fans were running for the exits. I don't much blame them as I left with 5 mins left in the 4th quarter.

    they put him in to further confirm that he still can't execute Dinger's script
    what i find to be criminal is that there's not a package in place that utilizes Vince's capabilities. I don't give a damn if he ever throws a pass, but he should at least be getting a few draws, options

    That's the problem!! Dinger shouldn't be expecting Vince to conform to his playbook. Dinger should be conforming the playbook to Vince's capability. That's what the GD OC is there for. I thought Dinger was supposed to be some sort of offensive genius?

    Exactly.

    Another choice should have been:

    Fisher didn't know what else to do since the TITANic was going down while the band played on.

    I think he was put in for 2 reasons, neither of which is an option in the poll:

    1) To appease the fans.
    2) To ease Vince in to the idea that he will soon be starting, so he better the hell get mentally-prepared (and, likewise, to help prepare Collins for the inevitable end of his career as an NFL starter).

    That makes sense, but Fish should already know that the fans want to see him for more than one freakin series...AND they'd probably also want to see Vince go for it on that 4th down play, especially considering those circumstances.

    Also makes sense, but again...he should have played more than one series.
    And Collins did not look happy when he was standing on the sidelines.
