Kerry Collins thinks his contract shouldn't get him poopcanned

NFL_collins2.jpgAfter an unexpectedly good 2008 season, Kerry Collins signed a two-year, $14 million contract to remain in Tennessee as the starter.  After an unexpectedly bad 2009 season, Collins is due to earn a base salary of $5.5 million to serve as the backup to Vince Young.

Collins doesn’t believe that his high rate of pay will get him, to borrow Billy Devaney’s term, poopcanned.

“I got the indication, from what [coach] Jeff [Fisher] said, that they want me
here and the money is not a problem
,” Collins told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.  “So I am
looking forward to being here. I would like to be starting, but that is
kind of the way it is. . . .

“Every indication I have gotten from them is that I am going to be here
and I am going off of what Jeff has said publicly:  money is not a
problem.  I trust him and I am going to move forward from there.”

Collins is right, but not necessarily because of his own abilities.  The last time the Titans entered the season with Young as the starter, Young had a Week One meltdown.  So, basically, Fisher wants Collins on that bench.  He needs Collins on that bench.

    What’s this ” i wish i was starting ” jib jab?!
    Kerry should just be happy he’s got a job!
    Once the Titans are done with him, so goes his career….i dunno maybe not Oakland always picks up other peoples crap.

    Really? Poopcanned? That offends the intelligence way more than the word shit would offend the moral majority.

    Vince Young signed a 6 year 58 mil deal and rode the bench for awhile.

    I like the reference Florio. Well played.

    I don’t believe it for a second.
    Bud Adams will flip the bird to 5.5 million.
    Well, that’s if the old man remembers that he’s paying Kerry 5.5 million. He might have forgotten.

    Poopcanned? Honestly? Wow.

    Oakland picked Collins up before. It didn’t go well.

    last time VY “had the job down pat”,like the story says,he had a mental meltdown and kerry came in and won like 13 straight games or something,so i dont think they should count their chickens here,just deal with the high price and wait for youngs performance to show through

  10. MooninLambeau says: Apr 29, 2010 9:32 PM

    when i saw the poopcan title i knew Florio was on duty. dude did u write this one while on the can??

  11. AdamEagle5 says: Apr 29, 2010 9:43 PM

    Ummm I think that means Collins IS there because of his own abilities. If they were worried about VY having another Week 1 meltdown and thought they would have to actually play the backup, wouldn’t they want someone there who was good enough to play?
    If they were keeping Collins not for his abilities, what would it be for? Because they don’t pay him very much? Uh, this whole post is about the fact they are paying him kind of a lot. Because they don’t think he’ll ever play anyway? Uh, you kind of shot that one down with the jab at VY. Because he’s real good buddies with the owner? What’s with you dissing QBs tonight? Collins is probably the best QB2 in the league (top 5 at least). What an ass…
    I’m not even a Titans or dunkass Kerry Collins fan, but this post was dumb, Florio.

    They need to get Kerry a chair from the scooter store!

  13. Flint Tropics says: Apr 29, 2010 10:26 PM

    i dont get the link to the scene from A Few Good Men

  14. realitypolice says: Apr 29, 2010 10:46 PM

    Yes!! Poopcan is back!! That’s got me feeling mighty pouncey.
    That’s a call back that was long overdue.
    Well played, Florio!

  15. balzosteel says: Apr 29, 2010 10:52 PM

    He called the shit POOP!!

    “After an unexpectedly bad 2009 season”
    Maybe to you but to me and probably alot of other people we expected him to have a season exactly like that.

  17. Davie Ricky says: Apr 30, 2010 12:06 AM

    So earlier in the day i see someone call Florio, Gloryhole. I thought that was the funniest thing I had evern seen on PFT… then Florio uses the word poopcanned. Today was a good day.

  18. shaggeez says: Apr 30, 2010 12:24 AM

    i dont see why they need this guy to be the backup. last year titans start the season 0-6 with him at qb. even jamarcus russell could probably squeeze 1 win out. maybe….

  19. deoboi510 says: Apr 30, 2010 1:39 AM

    I hope vy does have a meltdown in week 1

  20. rageagainst07 says: Apr 30, 2010 1:48 AM

    money isn’t a problem but they can’t pay a proven elite running back?????

  21. Dixon29 says: Apr 30, 2010 6:15 AM

    Flint,
    YOU WANT ME ON THAT WALL, YOU NEED ME ON THAT WALL! You come down here with your faggetdy white uniforms… Jack’s line when him Tom Cruise and Demi Moore had breakfast at Git-Mo. Come on man!

  22. shaunypoo says: Apr 30, 2010 6:58 AM

    He can’t handle the truth.

  23. Enough Already says: Apr 30, 2010 6:59 AM

    If he gets cut, will Collins use the ‘liar, liar, pants on fire’ defense…

  24. NoseBleedFan says: Apr 30, 2010 7:32 AM

    If Collins doesn’t agree to a significant paycut, he’ll be gone…That’s the reason the Titans recently re-signed Chris Simms and drafted another QB.

    hee hee hee…….poop

  26. Hap says: Apr 30, 2010 9:25 AM

    Poopcanned ?

  27. Playmaker's Dealer says: Apr 30, 2010 9:30 AM

    7-milion a year to not throw any picks…or TD’s. Awful signing.

  28. favrecansuckit says: Apr 30, 2010 9:58 AM

    You’re a grown man Florio, you can type “shit”.

  29. Dice14 says: Apr 30, 2010 10:05 AM

    Florio, the topics that you report on are relevant, but your assumptions are asinine.
    Collins should not be paid to sit on the bench while C Johnson rushes for 2000 yards while getting paid in peanuts.
    …That’s an appropriate assumption to report on.
