Tennessee Titans 2009 Roster Review: Quarterbacks

New, comments

Over the next few days August and I will be reviewing the 2009 season of the different position groups on the Titans roster. We will kick it off with everyone’s favorite topic for debate over the past couple of years- the quarterbacks.

2009 - Vince Young 12 82.8 152 259 58.7 1879 156.6 7.3 10 7 55 281 23.4 5.1 2 9 36

Obviously the story from the quarterbacks this season was the resurgence of Vince Young. Vince answered a lot of the questions that people were asking about him when he got his chance to get back on the field. It was obvious that he had spent his time on the sideline learning the offense and working on some of the mechanical issues that had troubled him in the past. We didn’t see very many throws that went opposite of the receiver or many throws that appeared intended for someone on the other team. You can’t help but be encouraged by what you saw from VY this season.

Now it is up to Vince to continue his development. It is my opinion that his success as a rookie ended up being a detriment to his career- he bought too much into his own hype. Everything that Vince has done and said over the last few months have me convinced that he won’t fall into that trap this time.

2009 - Kerry Collins 7 65.5 119 216 55.1 1225 175 5.7 6 8 11 15 2.1 1.4 1 6 37

Then there was Kerry Collins. He continued his career track of following up a good season with a bad one. He went from a good game manager to a bad quarterback all in one offseason. He said after last year that he would retire if he wasn’t the starter. We will see how true those words are because he now has a contract with some money on it. There would be no shot the Titans would bring him back if there was a salary cap next year, but who knows what will happen since there isn’t. I doubt he ends up back here which will mean the Titans will need to add a QB either in free agency or later in the draft.
