Collins better than Warner? Over last 5 weeks, yes

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Much has been made of Kerry Collins' role as a game manager for a run-based team.

When teams have stacked up and forced the Titans to throw more, he's done well, too. But his most notable stats for the season are lows, not highs -- he's thrown only six interceptions and been sacked seven times.

Look more closely at his body of work over the last five weeks, and I expect you will be surprised. He rates better than Jay Cutler, Philip Rivers, Kurt Warner, Chad Pennington and Eli Manning.
