    1st off the Titans would need 10 wins in a row if you are counting from the 0-6 start. 2nd if you are counting from the time he flashed the 9 fingers in the air it would be 5 games in a row so the above comment makes no sense what so ever unless of course VY told you personally why he flashed the 9 in the air. I would lean towards VY flashing the 9 in honor of his mentor after a big win.

    I would also like to recant some of my prior comments about Vince not being are QB of the future. Obviously that is why I am a fan and not making decisions on Sundays. Its easy to point fingers and be negative when your team is in the midst of a 0-6 start. VY has really shown me that he deserves to be our QB now and in the future and plus he is so fun to watch play the game. Last year despite a great record with KFC at the helm the offense was boring to watch unless CJ got the rock.

    Talking about arrogant, the writer fell disrespected just because a rookie dared to extend his hand to salute him and those around him. For that reason and what happened in 08, something I'm sure he reached his conclusion by what the media portrayed. These days anyone can be a sport writer.

    I could never understand why anybody would think that arrogance was a negative characteristic of a QB. It's not!

    I don't know what to think of that article. Makes Scoop Jackson seem a bit like a pansy, rooting against a QB for such silly personal reasons. I like that he no longer hates VY, but as a sports writer if you're going to hate a QB then you should hate him for sports-related reasons, and if you're going to like a QB you should like him for sports-related reasons. Scoop sounds more like he was mad that VY turned him down for a dance at the prom.

    Oh well, nice to hear that Vince is winning over some "haters" with his play and his demeanor. As long as he wins games I don't care what ESPN thinks, though.

    I agree I guess I didnt think VY had won 9 games in a row as a starter.the media was talking about this being Vinces 9th win in a row as a starter but did they fail to remember the Titans losing to the Chargers in the 2008 playoffs with Vince starting?? then in 2008 vince started the faguar game and got hurt and KFC started the rest of that season and 6 games into this one so realistcally it was vinces 5th win in a row as a starter.

    And realistically, the colt's streak isn't at 21 but rather at 12.
