Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams says it's time to let quarterback Vince Young go. The Titans released a statement Wednesday night in which Adams said Young won't be on the team's roster next season, but he's still evaluating the coaching staff. "We have two critical decisions to make, the direction of the coaching staff and the future at the quarterback position. They are separate issues to me and will be dealt with separately," Adams said. Adams is the owner who wanted Young drafted No. 3 overall out of Texas in 2006 and said on draft day that "VY is my guy. " Young is 30-17 in his five NFL seasons, but only 13-14 against teams finishing a season at .500 or better.

Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams wants to see more of Vince Young . He's getting just that, with his winless team switching from veteran Kerry Collins back to the 2006 offensive rookie of the year. Coach Jeff Fisher announced the expected move Thursday following practice for the 0-6 Titans, and Young got the news from his coach in the morning. Fisher said it was an organizational decision resulting from the team's winless start and that he won't play musical chairs with the position.

The Titans (11-5), already the AFC South champions, gained a first-round bye with the victory, their 10th in 11 games.

"Bud" Adams Jr., owner of the Tennessee Titans, the NFL franchise he has owned since it was the Houston Oilers of the old American Football League, said under oath that he dismissed California as a potential locale for the team because, as he put it, "I always think of California being the home of the fruits and the nuts." Adams also discounted Baltimore.

Life isn't fair. Or at least the NFL isn't. With one more victory, Georgia Frontiere and Bud Adams will be in the Super Bowl. That would be like Bonnie and Clyde becoming bankers of the year. What did Frontiere and Adams steal? Not their teams. Adams had as much right to move his Oilers, now Titans, to Tennessee in 1997 as Frontiere had to move her Rams to St. Louis two years earlier. What they stole was the joy from football fans in Houston and Anaheim that was sapped by inept ownership.
