Default The Tacks may be dealing with more QB issues

From PFT:

Quote:
Kerry Collins may not be interested in being a “nursemaid” for Jake Locker

APWith Vince Young out and Jake Locker in and Rusty Smith not sufficiently experienced or veteran to serve as an experienced veteran, some believed that Titans quarterback Kerry Collins may stick around for another year, while Locker gets up to speed.

Teammate Jake Scott recently told Ross Tucker and Peter King of SiriusXM NFL Radio, via King’s indispensable MMQB column, that Collins may simply decide to call it quits.

“I’m not sure Kerry isn’t going to say, ‘I’m done,’ and ride off into the sunset,” Scott said. “I don’t think he wants to come back and be a nursemaid to a young kid. Money’s not an issue to him.”

If that’s the case, then the Titans need to decide whether to bring in a different veteran, whether to let Locker handle the job as a rookie, or whether to give Rusty Smith a shot at being the short-term solution, while hoping that Smith doesn’t become so good that they can’t get Locker onto the field.

I don't know what the number is, but VY won an ungodly number of games for the Tacks.

I mean the bar is pretty low. For them, QB play has little to do with winning. A smart coach, bad-ass running game & a better than avg Dfense is their formula.

"Don't do nut'n stupid, stupid," should be all the coaching the QB needs in Tennessee.

Not having Kerry Collins be your QB is probably a positive not a neagative.

I tend to agree with you here. As mentioned prior with all the 1st year coaches, the QB situation and all this mess going on with the lockout I think the Tacks and all their fans have plenty of legitimate "worries". I just *thought* the Texans had it tough with a new DC and defensive scheme.

Titans just ****ed themselves bad. Getting rid of Fisher and VY both just made no sense. They should have kept VY if they planned on getting rid of Fisher or kept Fisher since they were going to get rid of VY.

Now they're back to having Collins and some young rookie. Fisher is no longer there to turn shit into something nice and get the team to over achieve. The Titans have a long road ahead of them and CJ isn't going to have putting out anymore 2,000 yard seasons.

The difference is that historically we haven't been able to overcome our "worries."

I'm 'cautiously optimistic' that things will change. Guess we'll all find out together. Just don't know when.

McClain reports:


Quote:
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The Tennessee Titans haven't seen much of rookie quarterback Jake Locker. That's not stopping his new teammates from thinking the eighth pick overall could be their starter whenever the NFL starts playing again.

Locker worked out with his new teammates Thursday in a second straight player-organized minicamp at a local high school as the NFL lockout continues. He's made a sizeable impression on Tennessee veterans in just two days, including Thursday when he completed 8 of 12 passes.

Left guard Leroy Harris says he thinks the former Washington standout physically is ready to start and just needs to make sure he learns the plays. Harris says Locker has all the tools to be Tennessee's franchise quarterback.

About 40 players turned out Thursday for a nearly two-hour workout.

Collins would like to return to Titans in 2011

Quote:
Posted on June 11, 2011 by JIM WYATT, The Tennessean

Kerry Collins wants to nip any retirement talk in the bud. The veteran quarterback said Saturday he wants to play in 2011, and would love to return to the Titans.

But he also said the situation would have to be right.

“I know I still have good football left in me, and I want to see where they’re at, too,” Collins said of the Titans. “If it makes sense on both sides to do it, I’d be good for coming back.”

Collins, coming off his 16th NFL season, played in the City of Hope’s Celebrity Softball Challenge on Saturday morning at Greer Stadium. He said he’s been working out regularly, and is great shape.

Collins spoke with new Titans Coach Mike Munchak before the NFL lockout, when he also talked with new offensive coordinator Chris Palmer. Collins also said he’d be open to working with rookie quarterback Jake Locker, the team’s first round pick.

“I went through it with Vince (Young),” Collins said. “I would be open to it, but it would have to be the right thing. I would like to get to know Jake a little bit to make sure he’d be the type guy I’d want to help out. That won’t be the sole issue either. It is not about what kind of guy Jake is. I just have to weigh a lot of things.”

The lockout could help Collins’ chances of returning, since he knows Munchak. But plenty remains to be seen, he said.

“I think it is legitimate speculation to think the longer this thing goes, the more attractive I would be to them because of my familiarity with everything,” Collins said. “I know we have new coordinators, but I am sure a lot of terminology is going to be the same. On paper it makes sense to at least talk to me about coming back. The longer this thing goes, the better it could work out for me.
Please, please, please.
