It's easy to be a scapegoat when you're forced to work with mediocrity.

Vince Young is another Kordell. Another Vick. Another running QB. Another dazzler in college that doesn't deliver the goods in the NFL. He's not Chow's type of QB.

But he's not coming here.

Titans fire Chow after three seasons....

Chow, 61, told The Tennessean he was disappointed and didn't see the firing coming. He said he thought he could help develop Vince Young, who threw nearly twice as many interceptions as touchdowns this season.

i kind of think it's just the inability of the QB to buy into the system... too often the pocket breaks down and they just think to hellwith it and take of running... other times they'll show off their awesome arm strength and whip it 70 yards downfield not knowing who's hands it'll end up in... a GREAT QB like Ben Roethlisberger... would buy time with his feet and find the open man even if it's only for a 6-7 yard gain...

Don't look for it to end anytime soon MOP. With the growth of the spread option offense in the college game, it's only a matter of time before someone gets the bright idea to install an honest to God spread option offense in the NFL with a guy like Tebow or Dixon as their quarterback.

Default Norm Chow fired

how long will it take the titans to realize that young is just another kordell stewart? firing chow was either a tactic to save face or a move to find an OC with a vanilla playbook. i think the titans' organization know they screwed up by picking young. fisher and chow wanted leinhart, not the second coming of kordell. maybe third if you count vick.

now the titans will be hiring and firing OCs left and right.

I could see Chow returning to USC if Carrol takes a pro job.

OC isn't taking a pro job and Sarkisian doesn't get demoted for Chow.

maybe if carrol does go to a pro coaching job he might sign his old buddy chow to OC or something else...

This basically sums it up right there.

I just don't get the hate for Arians. He's opened up the Offense, we USE the Tight Ends now, Willie Parker leads the league in rushing, and Big Ben reached the next level as a QB. All of this with an atrocious Offensive Line and average WR's outside of Ward and Holmes.
