With every Titans loss, Vince Young gets a little closer to seeing the field again.
But despite Kerry Collins’ struggles last week and our pleas for Jeff Fisher to insert Young into the lineup to help NBC’s ratings this Sunday night, Young will watch a suddenly healthy Colts defense from the sidelines.
Young wants to play, but made it clear Wednesday he’s going to say all the right things, and doesn’t want to get on the field just because his team’s season is falling apart.
“I am always wanting to play; I can’t do nothing about that,” Young
said to the Nashville Tennessean. “I am just taking care of my responsibilities . . . My job is to stay in the
game mentally and pay attention.”
Young was reportedly uncomfortable talking about the situation, as you’d expect.
“I am not interested in those questions right now, because that is not
what I am looking for us to do, to lose to get back in the game,”
With the Colts and Patriots next on the schedule, Kerry Collins will have to help engineer a big upset to avoid an 0-6 start for last year’s number one seed in the AFC.
