The Titans had 3 quarterbacks to choose from heading into the season opener against the Jets. Super rookie Vince Young, established veteran back-up Billy Volek or newly acquired Kerry Collins. Jeff Fisher decided to go with Collins as the starter but Young was in soon after. The result was a 23-16 loss to the jets.
The top draft pick completed his first 3 passes in the 1st quarter and had the Titans driving. But then he was picked off by former Titan Andre Dyson...and that was it for him. 3 of 4 passes for 27 yards. So Collins came back in in the 2nd quarter and he too was picked off by Dyson. That initerception led to a Chad Pennington touchdown pass to Jerrico Cotchery to give the Jets a 13-0 lead at the half.
