Not sure what that has to do with the Titans receivers, but ok.

Passing TD's: 0 (0 points)
Rushing TD's: 2 (12 points)
Bironas FG's: 8 (26 points including 2 pat's)
I know what the stats are. Williams racking up 44% of those yards is approximately proportionate to what AJ does to other teams. Collins inability to score TD's may have been more about lack of snaps or a little rust, but he certainly moved the ball at will. The play of that game was a play not made........ by Dunta on Williams.

Both Collins and Young are not doing well. *Maybe* the receivers have something to do with it. (Note: I did not say they have "everything" to do with it.)
I wouldn't put too much credence into preseason performances including whether its VY or Schaub going 14 of 16. Also, if you go to gotitans.com you will see more and more tack fans getting tired of VY. I'm not saying they are calling for Collins, but that wasn't point above anyway.... Point was and remains, Collins was effective throwing the ball against us with the same WR's that VY has - irrespective of whoever is covering them...
Maybe it could be that they don't want to spend money on receivers when they're not sure or know that their QB can't get the ball to them. What would probably help them and vincent though - is getting a tall athletic guy who can catch those jump balls like Sweed did for Young at Texas...
For those that missed the point of my post it is this...
The receivers that Collins had were the same receivers that VY had. Collins was able to move the ball in the air and VY was not.. Period.
