Vince plays in blowout loss

So I noticed that Tennessee was losing 45-0 at the half to New England.  Tom Brady had just set the Pats' franchise record for touchdown passes, yards, and models knocked up in a quarter and a half, it appeared.  And Kerry Collins was a paltry 1 of 10 for 15yds.  So of course Fisher trots out Collins to start the second half, and he completes one of his next two passes, a -22yd. pass to Nate Washington.  Yes, negative 22yds.  As in, the guy played well over a half of football, and ended up 2 of 12 for -7yds. and an interception.

 

Great time for Vince, right?  Wrong.  First pass he comes in to throw, Crumpler doesn't make his turn on time, and Vince throws it off his back foot anyway, so it's an interception.  The other attempt went for an incomplete pass.  So despite the fact that Collins had just had possibly the worst first half of any starting QB in modern NFL history, I think Vince actually managed to find a way to have a lower QB rating today.  On the bright side, even having zero completions, he still had more passing yards than Collins.

 

Anyway, Vince was in a tough spot, and didn't perform well, but I'll be amazed if Fisher somehow musters the audacity to play Collins another snap this season.  It should be Vince time again, finally.
