The Associated Press is reporting that Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams has informed the head coach that he wants to see Vince Young on the field starting for the team this Sunday against the Jacksonville Jaguars.
Current starter, Kerry Collins, was part of the 59-0 loss to New England on Oct. 18 before the team’s bye-week. Nashville’s newspaper The Tennessean cited sources Tuesday that said Adams apparently had the conversation with Fisher right after the game.
Coach Jeff Fisher said Wednesday he will reveal his plan for the QB position today after practice.
Young replaced Collins during a winless start in 2006. He went on to win Offensive Rookie of the Year, helping Tennessee finish 8-8 after an 0-5 start. Collins was signed just before the ’06 season. He went 12-3 as the starter in 2008 and signing a two-year deal this offseason to return.
The Titans are one of three remaining winless teams in the league—St. Louis and Tampa Bay are both 0-7. Fisher wants to shake up things for a team that has lost eight straight games since last season, when Tennessee sprinted out to a 10-0 start en route to the NFL’s best mark at 13-3.
The team is currently last in the NFL in time of possession and haven’t scored a touchdown in eight quarters.
