Kerry Collins has been no better than Vince Young

56.6% Completion Percentage.

2 Passing TD's in 4 games.

Only 6.95 yards per attempt.

Thank god we got Vince Young out of there.

Every media outlet, local and national, repeat the same theme.

Kerry Collins is showing how much better he is than Vince Young right now.

And it isn't true.

If Vince Young had the same completion percentage as Kerry Collins right now, he'd be getting killed.  In fact, last year Vince was over 62% and got killed for it.  Collins is at 56% and is getting praised for it.

If, no when, Vince Young was over throwing WR's on deep passes last year, he got killed for it.  This year, Kerry Collins is over throwing virtually every long pass he has thrown.  And he is getting praised for it.

If the Titans had only 2 passing TD's in 4 games under Vince Young, he'd be getting killed for it.  In fact, last year that was all we averaged and Vince got killed for it.  This year,  Collins is getting praised for only 2 TD's in 4 games.

Listen, we can't have an unstable, emotional QB.  And if that was what Vince would be this year, he shouldn't be in there and I support that decision to keep him on the bench. 

But let's not confuse the stats and the production.  The defense is carrying this team.  The running game is carrying this offense.  The offense is bad in the 2nd half this year.

Praising Collins is ridiculous.  The passing game has been just as bad as before.  The only difference is that the INT's are down slightly.  The completion percentage is horrible and is worse than Vince last year.  How can Vince's completion percentage last year be such a red flag but a completion percentage lower than that be great?
