As the Titans bid farewell to Kerry Collins and prepare to cut ties with Vince Young, they need a veteran presence on the depth chart to complement Jake Locker and Rusty Smith.
Coach Mike Munchak says they’re looking for a certain type of guy. But Munchak’s explanation will make even Pacman Jones’ head spin. (Or maybe, just maybe, Pacman will be the only one to instantly understand it.)
“We’re not looking for a guy that’s not capable of starting and winning games for us,” Munchak told John Glennon of the Tennessean, via Twitter.
So, in English, the Titans are looking for a guy who is capable of starting and winning games. (It must be that Penn State education. And here come the complaints and/or West Virginia cracks. It’s definitely not not worth it.)
Munchak added that he wants a quarterback who can teach the other two, compete with them and, if he can, beat them out.
Matt Hasselbeck has been linked to the Titans, but he’d need to be willing to take a back seat at some point to Locker. That point may not come for a year, especially if Hasselbeck can win games. Another possibility would be Marc Bulger, who has taken exception to the suggestion from former teammate Kurt Warner that Bulger has entered the happily-holding-a-clipboard phase of his career.
And then there’s the fact that Nashville isn’t all that far from Hattiesburg.
OK, we’ll shut up now.
