I'm ready to move on and look forward to next season. I'm already excited on what the Titans will do in the off season to make our team better.
One of the things they have to look into is the resigning of our free agents. From what I read somewhere, we have four key players who will become free agents next year. Kerry Collins. Brandon Jones. Bo Scaife. Albert Haynesworth.
I see Bo Scaife as an easy decision to re-sign. Brandon Jones... I don't know. He is easily replaceable. Most intriguing is Kerry Collins and Albert Haynesworth.
With the uncertainty of VY's efficiency, the signing of Simms and Kerry Collins performance in 2008, the decision on KC's free agency has become as important as Albert Haynesworth's or maybe more.
Now.. hypothetically.. if you are the Titans and you can only keep either Collins or Haynesworth next year for another run at the Superbowl... who would you keep?
If you asked me this question in WK12, I would say, without hesitation, Albert Haynesworth. But after seeing the Steelers game where we played without Big Al and KC had a good game, and the Ravens playoff game where KC has stepped up and showed that he can perform well on big games... I am not so sure now.
One thing I know is that Kerry Collins is a very capable game manager, he can win games, protect the ball well and by now, knows the system and has, more or less, mastered the offense. Can we risk losing him and still improve next year?
Or is keeping Albert Haynesworth more important because the Chain Gang will crumble if he leaves and what happened in the Steelers game was just a fluke performance by our patched up D-Line?
Tell me guys what you think?
