RTC: Kerry Collins retirement edition

With Kerry Collins retired and no longer an option, the Titans have no choice but to plug in Jake Locker, says David Climer. That could be the case. But at the very least they need a veteran backup who can play a few games when needed.

Collins’ retirement is an about face from recent comments, says John Glennon.

Donnie Nickey says Vince Young wore on Collins, says Glennon. That’s true, for sure. But if Collins returned, he would have gotten to work with a new, young quarterback in Jake Locker who would have been a refreshing change. So I don’t know how much of a factor we can call this.

The long lockout seemed to increase the chance that Collins would return, says Glennon.

The Titans do have quarterbacks, just none with notable experience, says David Boclair.

There is no better example of how to reclaim a lost career, says Shutdown Corner.
