Scout's Inc is going through the process of ranking all 32 NFL teams at every position. They started with QB. The Titans are ranked #26.
Vince Young played better than expected in his rookie season, but while he shows flashes of greatness, he is still far from a finished product. After a solid offseason, his accuracy and overall mechanics should dramatically improve. His decision making got better the more he played in 2006, but he still needs a lot of work reading defenses. Young has big-play capabilities and can turn a game around with his arm or his feet. He will likely be a feast-or-famine QB his entire career, but hopefully the big plays outnumber the bad ones. Kerry Collins did a nice job as a backup and mentor to Young last season, but he is no longer a viable starter. If the Titans keep three QBs (they kept only two in 2006), the third will be veteran Tim Rattay, a quality backup.
- They are both quarterbacks.
- They are both black.
- They are both athletic.
Why in the world are the Raiders ranked #24???? Here is the reason given by Scout's Inc.:
The Texans at #25 are also ranked ahead of the Titans. I guess the people over there don't remember Scott Mitchell. I am not saying that Matt Schaub is Scott Mitchell but there is always that chance. I don't know how you rank that ahead of Vince Young and whoever the Titans backup QB is.
This kind of stuff gets me really fired up. I just can't wait to watch Vince prove them wrong on the field.
