The Sporting News, despite being enough of a dump to give Mike Florio a paycheck, had the insight and cojones to name Vince Young the 2009 Comeback Player of the Year yesterday.
I know at one point VY had a low, low feeling around him, but he just kept on movin'... just like Supergrass (who have to rank pretty high on any list of overlooked bands from the 90's). I've been missing my Friday Jams, people.
Follow us through the jump if you dare...
Former Titans GM Floyd Reese is on the verge of landing the Seattle Seahawks job, according to Jason La Canfora of nfl.com. It'll be an interesting situation to keep an eye on as nobody knows how much control Reese will have over personnel; I mean he's basically being picked by head coach Pete Carrol, rather than the other way around.
Terry McCormick goes word count be damned in this profile piece for the City Paper's alternative/sister publication, The Nashville Scene. He covers the roller coaster ride 2009 was for the rookies, who were understandably completely unequipped to deal with an NFL season that was so volatile. I mean they got drafted by a 13 win team, then had no idea if their coach would survive the season at one point.
Long-time Titans running back coach Sherman Smith, who has been the O-coordinator for the Jim Zorn regime in D.C., will be looking for work as Mike Shanahan informed him yesterday that he's being replaced by his son, Kyle Shanahan.
In other 'former Jeff Fisher employee news', Norm Chow has spurned USC's offer and will stay at UCLA.
Since there ain't much happening in the Titans' stratosphere today, cheer yourself up with some LOLs from KSK, which leads with a tremendous Spaceballs reference.
