For three weeks, the Titans could make the argument that they were the most unlucky team in football, losing heartbreaking games to the Steelers, Texans, and Jets.
On Sunday, the realization set in that last year’s number one seed in the AFC just might not be very good.
The Titans trailed Jacksonville 27-3 at halftime on their way to a 37-17 loss.
Titans coach Jeff Fisher faced questions about his quarterback position immediately after the game, but NBC’s Peter King reported on Football Night in America that Fisher is not considering a change away from Kerry Collins.
Fisher likely understands that once he goes to Vince Young, he can’t go back. And Fisher has to answer to a locker room full of Titans players who could see a change to Young as giving up on the 2009 season.
Still, the Titans can only have so many losses before they start thinking about the future. And they face a daunting challenge next week: the undefeated Colts on Sunday Night Football.
So as a representative of NBC, we’d like to ask Mr. Fisher if he’d reconsider. Vince Young would help the ratings.
