Maybe Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams isn't as off as some might think.
There was a lot of speculation that Adams would pick quarterback Vince Young over coach Jeff Fisher in the one-has-to-go war. But Adams has decided the Titans will either trade or release Young.
Fisher stays, which means he will be in his 17th season with the team.
Normally I would side with a quarterback over a coach. I'd take Tom Brady over Bill Belichick, even though I think the latter might be the best coach of all time. This is a quarterback's league.
In this case, it should have been an easy choice. Young isn't that good. Fisher can coach.
If Adams had picked Young, much to the disapproval of his top men in Nashville in Mike Reinfeldt and Steve Underwood, it would have been a bad blow to the organizational structure.
As it turned out, those two must have convinced Adams how wrong he was about Young.
As for trading him, good luck. Anybody have a meatball sub they want to give up? That's about what the Titans can expect to get in exchange for Young.
The Titans also have to draft a quarterback this spring. Young has been flop, so it's time to try it again.
Adams did the right thing here. He might like Young a lot, but Young was never going to get his team to a Super Bowl. Fisher has and can again.
