TITANS SACK VINCE YOUNG

And with the 8th overall pick of the NFL draft, the Tennessee Titans select…. a quarterback? 4 years after selecting Vince Young from Texas, the Tennessee Titans and owner Bud Adams have decided to end the VY experiment.  The rift between the coach and the player has been lingering for years only to come to a climax this season, leading to the Titans’ losing 8 of their last 9.  I’m glad someone finally took the coach’s side over the diva players’.  NFL and most modern day athletes are so spoiled and used to getting their own way that when something like this happens, everyone is so shocked.  This is how it used to be, when sports was real.  Coaches these days have to walk on eggshells when they criticize their star/franchise players.  Jeff Fisher has been coaching this team for 16 years or so.  If you think there’s another qualified coach out their, good luck finding one.  The Titans can easily draft a scrambling quarterback, they’re a dime a dozen in college. I don’t think VY every played up to his potential.  Then again, I do believe that his type of quarterbacks, while successful in the short term, can never win you a Superbowl.  Look at Vick and McNabb. It’s no coincidence all the winning Superbowl quarterbacks have been pocket passers… Brady, Manning, Brees.  I’m sure there will be some suitors for Vince Young.  Half the league is in need of a quarterback.  As for the Titans, they’re 1 QB and 1 WR away from making a deep run in the playoffs.  They have the best runnign back in the game in Chris Johnson, and like most RB careers go, he’s got about 2 more years of playing at this level. The next move the Titans have to make is cutting Randy Moss.  Look how it helped the New England Patriots.  I love Moss but he reeks of clubhouse cancer.  You can’t have selfish guys like that on a team, especially without a true team captain to put him in place. It’s going to be an interesting offseason…wait a minute, don’t the playoffs start this weekend?

TITANS PLAGUED BY MOSS

Just when you thought that Randy Moss would take a team to the next level…BOOM! Wrong again.  They didn’t need him in New England after he kept mouthing off about his contract.  He turned the Minnesota Vikings into a bigger circus, if that’s even possible.  Then they released him too.  And now in his debut with the Titans, they lose to the hapless Miami Dolphins.  Sure, the Titans didn’t have Vince Young and Kerry Collins got injured in the game but they still had enough fire power to win this games.  I’m a big believer in team chemistry and locker room cancers.  Randy Moss is about to join the Terrell Owens club of “plenty of talent, but no takers…”  There is no specific event that triggered Moss’ fall from grace. He wasn’t happy in Minnesota when they had Chris Carter and Dante Culpepper.  He wasn’t happy in Oakland (understandably so). He barked up the wrong tree in New England and got traded for a measly mid-round draft pick.  He couldn’t get it together in Minnesota and now this.  I got a feeling that Jeff Fisher is going to regret this decision in a few weeks.  Moss is a sure fire hall-of-famer but his reputation is being tarnished.  It’s a good thing this is the MLB where players are judged on their character along with their stats.  Look what happened to Albert Bell. Stay tuned next week for the continuation of this soap opera, the saga continues.
