Tennessee Titans Morning Links: It's Vince Young's Time Now Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 If you listened to last night's podcast, you'll know that both Jimmy and I are completely of the mind that Vince should be the starter Sunday against the Colts, and it should be his job through the end of the year.  But, we've both watched Coach Fisher run this team long enough to know that he isn't going to say peep about it until the change is made.  So I found one small part of his statement interesting [emphasis added by AW]:

"Kerry’s our starter. Kerry gives us the best chance to win," Fisher said. "There was a little bit of life left. We got some points, and if we would’ve gotten the onside kick, it might have quieted down, and he might have put his starters back in. That was my decision today, to stay with him and try to find a way to win."

Also check out the podcast to hear more on the end of the Titans' season, what Jeff Fisher would have to do to get fired and the few bright spots from Sunday's game.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Peter King says Jeff Fisher told him last night they weren't changing QBs.  In spite of his own stupid, non-1sensical reasoning (the Indy game is our season!?!?!!!? 1-4 and we'd still be screwed) PK and I agree that you have to start VY here.  I say so because the Colts' D is still soft to my eye, and VY always excelled  the big stage.  Expect to hear a lot more about this decision over the course of the week.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Two days ago you could've made the argument that we were one of the best 0-3 teams in modern history.  The Titans took a dump all over that reasoning Sunday with a completely uninspired performance.

Follow us through the jump for more punches to the gut...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 More calls for VY to start.  I get the feeling disappointment is about to turn into rage if Kerry trots back out there next Sunday.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 McCormick breaks-down the terribleness that was that performance.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Reasons we lost yesterday: field position and injuries, but mostly it was just not being a very good football team.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Nick Harper left yesterday's game with a rib injury and didn't return, but a less noticed injury was Nate Washnington leaving the game after a hard hit.  Washington had a bad headache, and will probably require further observation.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 From the same link that started out this post we have the following quote, wherein LenDale White shows that he gets it:

"There’s enough talking around here. We can’t keep talking. Everybody can’t keep saying, ‘I’m going to do this, or what am I going to do.’ You’ve got to walk. There ain’t no talking all the time. We’ve got to stop the talking. If you ain’t ready to walk, after you talk, then don’t talk at all,’"

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Big ups to Kenny Britt for a big game, and Jared Cook for his first catch in the NFL.
