Vince Young benched by Titans

Vince Young was profiled by the NFL Network before Sunday's games, and while most of the analysts (Marshall Faulk, Michael Irvin) agreed he was becoming an "NFL quarterback," Warren Sapp was much less optimistic, stating that his "style is pedestrian." Looks like Sapp will get the last laugh, at least for today, as Jeff Fisher benched Young during the second half of Tennessee's game against the Steelers in favor of Kerry Collins.

When Collins started warming up on the sidelines, the Titans didn't have a single first down in the second half, Young had passed for just 66 yards, rushed for just 12, fumbled once and thrown two interceptions.

So it's not entirely unreasonable for Fisher to be a little upset -- especially when you consider that the Titans were losing by double digits to a team that required Charlie Batch to take snaps at quarterback.

You'll of course recall that both Young and Collins have won and lost their starting jobs after poor in-game performances by the other quarterback, so it's not like this a new experience for either one.

A strong performance by Collins could keep VY on the bench, but a mediocre showing could always bring Young right back onto the field, although at least for today that seems doubtful.

Update (3:30): It's doubtful that Jeff Fisher is really thrilled about the replacement work, because it took all of four plays for him to throw an interception.

I do not know if you were watching the same game I was. Yes, Young threw 2 picks and had a fumble. The fumble was not his fault because it came on a blindside hit as he was drawing back to throw the ball. Collins goes three plays and throws a pick. The next series Collins has a fumble much in the same manner as Young's. The next series Collins has a loss of down on an intentional grounding penalty as he is running back from a pass rush up the middle. A couple of series later Collins has another ball knocked out of his hand as he goes to pass. Based on the game that I saw Tennessee's offensive line was doing a terrible job of protecting their quaterback. There was no time to throw the ball. Collins started to complete passes at the end of the game when Pittsburgh relaxed their defense. The Titans have two glaring problems: the O-line is spotty and Fisher refuses to go out and get a true #1 reciever to stretch the field. Young has a lot of haters, and every week I see quarterbacks that play worst than Young. Farve threw three picks to day, Joe Flacco threw four picks and both of their teams lost close games. However neither of these quaterbacks were benched. Palmer threw two last week, Matt Cassel has been horrible in two games and Alex Smith has been horrible his whole career yet these guys did not get benched. So, stop hating on Young. No rookie qqb drafted in the last 5 years has won more games than VY has. VY has twice lead his team to the verge of a playoff berth after taking over the starting job when the team had posted a losing record through the first six games of the season. So I say Haters stop hating. VY wins more often than not when he is the starting QB. And to too really piss you off so does Micheal Vick.

Can we all agree now that Vince is never going to be what some thought he would be? He had one season in college where he was freakishly impossible to tackle and everyone thought he would be an NFL great because of that. But he's a mediocre NFL player. He plays like a 2nd string QB and should be nothing more than that.

Should this surprise anyone? Young is not an intelligent guy so he makes bad decisions. He is a very good athlete, but thats about it. It works for him sometimes but he will never be a reliable QB that you can count on to win games for you.
