Tennessee Titans Morning Links: A Collision Of Divergent Realities Edition

Making Chuck Cecil proud.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 David Climer says that Fisher was right in deciding that Kerry Collins gave the Titans the best chance to win. He determines this by establishing a parallel universe by going back in time to tell Fisher to let Vince stay in. From that moment on, two realities diverged; one in which we all watched Vince Young sit as Kerry Collins played QB like an epileptic at a Tool show, and another reality where Vince stayed in and something worse happened. Having seen both realities, Climer merged them again at the appropriate intersection of events (thanks to the Donnie Darko rules of alternate realities) and took the time out to tell us Jeff Fisher was right, his mustache smells like a Cinnabon in heaven and his sunglasses were indeed cool. I swear it's all in there if you know what to look for...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 News came out via Jim Wyatt that Vince was excused from a team meeting last Wednesday, and some people got up in arms before they found out why Fisher had signed off on Vince missing the meeting:

Young attended a "Dear Dads Breakfast" for the sons of Steve McNair at St. Paul Christian Academy. He picked up Tyler and Trent McNair at their home that morning, took them to breakfast and school. He did the same thing last September following the death of McNair.

Young asked Fisher for permission to attend the function several weeks back.

"He showed up, took them, brought them to school and was quite the hit,’’ said Julie Dilworth, admissions director at St. Paul Christian Academy. "He has been so good to those boys. He does a lot with them, great things. I love that it wasn’t just words for him when he said he would help. He has stepped up and done it, and it is a blessing.’’

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Keith Bulluck talked with Paul K about missing Nashville, missing the fans, missing the city and preparing for a match-up against the team that drafted him. It's a must-read piece.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 William Hayes is getting closer and closer to being ready to contribute to the defensive line just as Jacob Ford may not be available for the game Sunday thanks to what's being called a knee sprain. It's possible both guys will be up, but my guess is that the more healthy one will be active in the eight man rotation and the other one won't dress.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans will play in New Meadowlands Stadium for the first time in franchise history, but the ghosts of Steve McNair memorable performance in the 2002 overtime victory will still be present for a lot of Titans fans.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 The Titans and the Giants are two teams coming off of brutal and demoralizing ass-kickings. Both teams have every reason to play fast and angry, so I expect a good one on Sunday. However, there's apparently a good bit of in-fighting in the Giants' locker room over the leadership and direction of the team that our guys may be able to take advantage of with a few early scores to demoralize and confuse their defense.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 An MVN article measures the biggest QB controversies heading into week 3, and the Titans rank an 8 out of 10 despite the complete lack of controversy over who should be the QB in Nashville.
