John Clayton of ESPN.com calls this game the best one of the weekend:
Michael David Smith of FOX Sports.com ranks the 12 teams in order of quarterback play. This not really a surprise to me, he ranked the Titans 12th:
Considering the way Young is playing, and considering how effective backup Kerry Collins was when Young missed time with injuries, Titans coach Jeff Fisher might want to consider putting Collins in for a couple of series in the playoffs, both to open up the Titans' passing game and to force opposing defenses to adapt to the differences in stopping Young's mobility and Collins' pocket-passing precision. That's unlikely to happen, though, and Young is likely to struggle to a first-round playoff loss.
Keep this in mind, though: Quarterbacks are remembered for the way they play in the biggest games, and Young played one of the best games in college football history in the Rose Bowl two years ago, when he led No. 2 Texas to an upset of No. 1 USC. If Young could play well enough for the Titans to pull off a couple of even bigger upsets -- against the Chargers in the first round of the playoffs and then against the Patriots in the second -- he'll have a reputation as one of football's great big-game quarterbacks, at the age of 24.
Fox's Mike Tainer did a lot of research before posting his article and picking the Chargers:
NFL.com's Pat Kirwan has a good list of the key match-ups in the game and picks the Chargers:
Who remembers the last time everyone in the world was picking against Vince in a win or go home game? I know this isn't college, but I have a feeling Vince can still really play with that chip on his shoulder. Hopefully that chip will put him back in playmaking mode instead of prove he is a passer mode.
