    <em>Posted by ESPN.com's Paul Kuharsky<img src="http://a.espncdn.com/i/teamlogos/nfl/med/ten.gif" alt="" width="80" height="80" align="right" /></em> <p>INDIANAPOLIS -- Beyond the stuff on <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=734" target="_new">Kerry Collins</a> I <a href="/blogs/afcsouth/0-7-558/Reinfeldt--Titans-will-pay-Collins-as-much-as-any-other-team.html" target="_blank">posted earlier</a>, here some items of interest out of chats with Jeff Fisher and Mike Reinfeldt Friday at the scouting combine.</p> <ul> <li>GM Mike Reinfeldt said he thinks the current state of the economy will mean the first wave of free agency will last a week, not two or three and that mid-range guys could see less action. As the Titans do most of their work with mid-range guys, Reinfeldt said "I think it would behoove us to operate a little quicker, it will speed up." Keep in mind, the Titans have been very slow in recent years, and a little quicker than very slow could still qualify as slow.</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Coach Jeff Fisher said he thought <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=3543" target="_new">Albert Haynesworth</a> would prefer to return to Tennessee "not if all things were equal, but if they were close to equal." But that goes against what Haynesworth said Super Bowl week about being disinclined to offer his current team any sort of discount.</li> </ul> <ul> <li>The Titans are giving punter <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=538" target="_new">Craig Hentrich</a> time to make a decision on his future, but Reinfeldt said the team would be OK in finding a replacement if they didn't know before the start of free agency. I've heard from the inside they are thinking there is a 65 percent chance Hentrich, who sputtered at the end of his 15th season, will retire.</li> </ul> <ul> <li>The competition committee touched on the play clock in its preliminary talks over the last few days, Fisher said, but changes are not forthcoming. An officiating error on an expired play clock in the Titans' playoff loss to Baltimore was a very costly play. "You mean the 43-second play-clock?" Fisher said to laughs when asked. "Yeah we discussed it. It's very unlikely that you could add that to replay. You'd have to tie the play clock to the networks, there are a lot of things. It was an unfortunate mistake that took place in the ballgame. The committee's not going to overreact to those one-time things that happen during the course of the year."</li> </ul> <ul> <li>Fisher said he recently sat down with <a href="http://sports.espn.go.com/nfl/players/profile?playerId=9589" target="_new">Vince Young</a> for a meeting initiated by the quarterback, who asked his coach what he needed to do to get his job back. Fisher took that as an encouraging sign and said they had a good chat, though he declined to offer any details.<br /> </li> </ul>

    What does slightly faster than slightly slow qualify as? What about slightly slower than quick?

    If Collins comes back and starts, that is just really sad Vince Young can't beat him out for the job, he might as well kill himself.
