Can Dinger do for "10" what he did for "9"?

It appears all but certain that Mike Heimerdinger will return to the Titans to take over an offense that has sputtered the last two seasons. Of course, the centerpiece of that offense is Vince Young who some, including ESPN's Merrill Hoge, think is unfixable. The fact is, Dinger brings a hammer to town, and is known to be a fiery guy. Brad Hopkins was quoted in the Tennessean as saying, "It is going to be interesting to see how Vince responds — if he is as sensitive as we think he is — to a (butt)-chewing". Personally, I think Young will respond fine, if he is the champion I think he is. Heimerdinger helped Steve McNair become a league MVP, but arrived after McNair has become established and won an AFC title. He's also worked with Jay Cutler the past couple of years and now gets a hodge-podge of talent in Young that needs discipline and direction.
Unlike Hoge, I refuse to believe that the Titans, "Made a mistake" taking Young. Matt Lienart has done nothing to date and Cutler has shown flashes, but has done less with more talent and an offensive guru head coach. Vince wants to win desperately. Dinger wants to win. Jeff Fisher wants to win. Young didn't get Norm Chow fired. It was time for a "New direction" and Mike Heimerdinger will set the course.

I would love to see #9 back in a Titans uniform backing up Vince Young. What do you People think??? Could this be coming??

Titans Rob said...

Absolutely not! As much as I loved the guy, #9 is done in this league. He needs to sign a 1 day contract with the Titans so that he can retire wearing the only uniform he should have ever worn. At this point, I would put much more faith in #5 at the backup position than #9.

The Titans rule & Norn Chow sucks. VY will break Brady's records wait & see. Me & Thom are the only ones behind him. Maybe we can give his ppech at the HOF. Jeff Fisher in 08.
