There's trouble in Tennessee. Losing to the Steelers in Pittsburgh was one thing. But last week's defensive collapse, at home against the Texans, have put them in a tricky spot.
This week, the Titans visit the red-hot New York Jets. That means they're staring an 0-3 start right in the face. If that happens, they might need a spark. And that spark just might be Vince Young.
Understand, Kerry Collins hasn't done anything wrong. He's been his usual reliable self. But reliable isn't what Tennessee needs right now. Collins throws underneath more often than an quarterback in football, and the Titans can't expect Chris Johnson to keep turning in 80-yard touchdowns. Eventually, they'll need to find some explosiveness under center.
VY could bring that. He'll make some mistakes, but he's also capable of escaping the pocket and running for some big plays. Because of his mobility, opposing defenses will have to prepare for the Titans in a whole different way. If an opposing D has to use a linebacker to spy on Vinsanity, that could open up the middle of the field for Johnson and the tight ends. And if you make enough plays there and the safeties start to cheat up, Nate Washington and Kenny Britt can make them pay by making some big plays downfield.
Obviously, turning to Young after Collins led them to a 13-3 record a year ago is a desperate move. But if the Titans fall to 0-3, a desperate move might be exactly what they need.
