Weren’t we past this with him?
“I don’t see it happening again and if it does I’ll make the appropriate decision at that time. But Vince is our starter,” coach Jeff Fisher said Monday via Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean.
Fisher cited Kerry Collins’ experience against the Steelers as a reason he made the move. Fisher also pointed towards all the benchings around the league on Sunday as proof that quarterback is a tough position to play. But Young doesn’t want his peers to be Matt Moore, Derek Anderson, and Jason Campbell.
Young certainly doesn’t get paid like those guys.
“He shouldn’t like it. Anybody you take out of the game, do you expect
him to like it? No, he shouldn’t like it,” Fisher said. “And I would
expect any player that was replaced for whatever reason not to be happy
with it. But what you do is you come back to work, you work harder, you
learn from it and you improve.”
Right there is a window into Fisher’s thinking. He’s still trying to motivate his quarterback while winning games along the way. Young apologized to his fans via Twitter on Monday, but didn’t speak otherwise.
Like a lot of Titans fans, Young probably thought he was past getting benched in Week Two.
