Anemic in first half, Collins now hurt
By Paul Kuharsky
MIAMI -- We’re not judging the Titans' acquisition of Randy Moss on a half of football.
But if we were, it gets a low grade.
The Titans have thrown to him three times and he doesn’t have a catch.
Tennessee is knotted at 10-10 with the Dolphins at the half and has done some good things. But it seems intent on throwing screens and finding stuff underneath. The Titans needed more than a deep incompletion from Kerry Collins for Nate Washington on their first play to create room for such things.
Bo Scaife has a lost fumble, a drop and a reception that ended with a crushing pop from Karlos Dansby. The passing game has been thoroughly ineffective.
Collins has a bad finger he’s been playing through, which seems to be affecting him. He is 9-of-20 for 51 yards. And on the final play of the half, when Moss was wide open to his right and he threw for Justin Gage on the left, the veteran quarterback was hurt. It looked like a left ankle injury.
He was the last off the field for the Titans at the half, limping very badly and walking with a trainer.
Will Vince Young, out with an ankle injury, be able to step in and tough it out if the Titans need him?
