    Word on the street here is we may see Vince Young start against the Pats or at least get majority of the playing time. The papers down here are all calling for some kind of change anyhow...
    Watching the Titans fans drag themselves into work this morning was anti-climactic due to the Denver loss yesterday.

    I really...REALLY dont want the Pats to be their first win, I have a large group of Titans fans coming over to the house for that game...Smoked Brisket...:), that being said...to those going to the Game on Sunday....GET LOUD and Givem hell!!
    That is all.

    Excellent, Dean Pees's sit back and watch defense can make Vince Young look like Joe Montana also...........can't wait !

    If we dont blitz young on 80% of the plays, Pees is retarded.

    Isn't Young at his best when he's moving out of the pocket and can make plays with his feet?

    I didn't like the defensive gameplan against Orton, thought we should have blitzed him more, but I wouldn't mind that gameplan against Young.

    Can he beat you as a pocket passer? Probably not. But if you start blitzing, he can get out of the pocket and really hurt you.

    I think Belichick would be happy to contain his running with little pass rush and then see Young try to throw downfield - which he can't do.

    I heard the Titans defensive backfield has been decimated. Both starting cornerbacks out with injury? Maybe you could elaborate PatsfanTN. This may be what Brady neesd to get back into rythm. I would much prefer to face Collins if I'm the pats, since you know exactly what you are getting with him. With young, he is pretty fast, and can make some plays on the move. You have to gameplan for him entirely different. Of course, his pass completion has been low in the pro's, and he makes alot of mistakes so it may not matter much. But the defensive gameplan will definitely have to change.

    You give Dean Pees too much credit. Belichick determines whether

    the Patriots are agressive or not.

    I say last night that he will be our best option to win the Titans, so probably he is gonna throw 400 yds and 6 TD

    I look forward to Vince Young throwing for 370 yards and 2 touchdowns, with a rushing TD on top of that.

    I'm confident the defensive schemes won't let me down.

    Don't see how it can hurt. Kerry Collins sure isn't getting the job done. Their season is done for all intents and purposes, they might as well get VY some experience so he can be prepped to take over or so they can trade him.

    There may be as many defensive personnel tasked to spying Young this game as there are people rushing him.

    Regardless of QB, I forsee the Pats focusing hard on the running game. They probably feel confident in being able to stop the passing game with limited help. Look for McGowan in the box... or spying the QB if they sit Collins.

    Actually, the ONLY damage Vince Young can do is with his feet. The sit back gameplan might work because Young likes to make bad throws.

    Evidently Harper broke his arm too, so the Titans will be without him I assume as well.

    Maybe our defense should just taunt him at the line of scrimmage and break him down mentally because whatever we're doing at the line is not working.

    I'm not sure we have the personnel to pull that off.

    Vince Young doesn't concern me, containing Chris Johnson does.
