Titans Coach Fisher Expected to Make the Move to QB Young Today

Packers Titans Football
Jeff Fisher said yesterday that he would announce his starter today, and that means if he wasn’t going to go with Kerry Collins, he would have said it yesterday. With that said, even today’s Tennessean reports today that the team is likely going to make the move to Vince Young;

Plenty of signs point to a switch from starter Kerry Collins to backup Vince Young, although Coach Jeff Fisher said he wouldn’t announce his decision until today, citing “competitive reasons.” Things were noticeably different on Wednesday, however, when the Titans got back to work after their bye week. For the first time this season, Collins and Young were off limits to reporters. So was offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger. Fisher is no longer giving Collins the ringing endorsement he issued each week during a 0-6 start. Everything seemed to change when Titans owner Bud Adams informed the coaching staff he wants Young to start, beginning with Sunday’s game. “I am not going to discuss the quarterback situation. I’ll have an answer (today),” said Fisher, indicating he hopes the Jaguars prepare for both. “I’m going to assume that as long as we can keep this thing a mystery the better chances we have. There’s clearly a difference in skill sets between the two quarterbacks. That’s obvious.”
