Super Bowl Buzz Kill

Why your team won't win the Super Bowl:

Don't worry, this preview is not going to be a bunch of jokes about Vince Young failing his Wonderlic test because his crayons kept bleeding over the lines. And there will not be any mention that Young tends to throw like a woman. Everybody is past that.

But if should be noted that the Titans are doomed if Young sees any significant playing time this season. Not because he has shown to have the same mental makeup as Jeff George. No, rookie quarterbacks typically don’t take teams to the Super Bowl unless they are Kurt Warner. And Young definately is not. Still, the Titans are expected to give Young a lot of playing time this season. It's almost as if Jeff Fisher has resigned himself to the fact that he will soon be fired, so why not add a little gallows humor by playing Young a bunch?

Speaking of quarterbacks, Billy Volek does not give the Titans much of a chance, either. Undrafted free agents don’t tend to lead teams to the Super Bowl. Unless, of course, they again are Warner. And he is not.

The Titans top receiver, Drew Bennett, is also an underdrafted free agent. Wow, it's hard to believe that an organization that has to rely undrafted free agents as a quarterback and receiver passed up on Matt Leinart and Jay Cutler. Actually it's not so strange at all. The Titans could be so bad this year, they might have to decide between sticking with Young and taking Brady Quinn with the first overall selection.

Other previews: Jets, Texans, Vikings, Jaguars, Bills, Eagles, Bears Buccaneers, Chiefs,Falcons and Raven.

The Titans' defense is horrible! They couldn't even stop that loser Jay Cutler the other night! And he sucks!
