PFT’s fearless leader is in Canton, Ohio this weekend to take in the Hall of Fame festivities, and press some NBC flesh.
There will even be a game Sunday night between the Bills and Titans, and the Tennessee quarterback situation will be the most compelling storyline to monitor.
Jeff Fisher announced his rough plan for game: Kerry Collins will play a few series, and Vince Young will take over after that into the third quarter.
Tulane graduate Patrick Ramsey will go next, and Chris Mortensen’s son Alex could get a few snaps a short distance away from his proud papa’s bus.
It’s a key preseason for Young to stabilize his status with the team and within the league. If he falters, there are many in Tennessee that believe Ramsey could pass Young on the depth chart. (NFL Network’s Jason LaCanfora said something similar Friday.)
It’s not exactly the Super Bowl, but it’s not bad for the second Sunday in August. It’s a football game again, finally.
Perhaps most importantly, the contest means the start of games every weekend, until we know the matchup for Super Bowl XLIV.
