Spitblood Psychic: The Future of Rooster.

Warren Moon says the Oilers move to Nashville was Racially Motivated.

As the most beloved and ballyhooed prospect to come out of TCU since LaDainian Tomlinson, we all have a heightened sense of interest where Red will end up playing football professionally. So rather than make you all dig through the muck and mire that are sports related internet rumors, we will compile them all here, team by team, as they come along. For the sake of brevity, we will only feature team's that have scheduled an interview or workout with Andy, look at their current QB situation and draft picks and make one of our patented hasty assessments from there. We will also give more credence to team's with picks in the 2-4 rounds (amendment: 1-3 rounds, because that's looking more and more likely) because we're optimistic and can't see Dalton lasting beyond there.

Today we'll take a look at another potential landing spot, the one that destroyed Vince Young's confidence to the point that he quit on the team and contemplated suicide and where the owner isn't afraid to flip a bird or two at opposing fan bases, the Tennessee Titans!

QBs Currently on Roster: Kerry Collins, Brett Ratliff, Chris Simms, Rusty Smith, Mr. Purple Pansy.. for now.

Draft Picks: Round 1 (8), Round 2 (7), Round 3 (13).

Why Rooster Fits: Kerry Collins is old and drunk. Chris Simms is missing vestigial organs and was never good, anyway. Rusty Smith went to Central Florida and Brett Ratliff still has Cleveland stank on him. Oh, and Vince Young... OH Vince Young. What a nightmare. In other words, the Titans could use some QB help. But having lost the stability of 16 year coach Jeff Fisher this off season, is a rookie coach going to take a flier on a rookie QB? It's hard to say. With Chris Johnson in the fold, I suppose it wouldn't be a terrible landing spot for AD as he could be used to hide a lot of his growing pains. And Kerry Collins, despite being bounced around the league for the bulk of his career, is a trusty veteran on the wane of his career and wouldn't be the worst teacher for Dalton to learn from. There are better ones, yes, but there are also worse. Plus, how great would it be for Dalton to be the guy to return the Titans to their semi-recent good form when Vince Young couldn't? Big time comeuppance.

Why Rooster Doesn't Fit: Too many QBs on the roster, although I'm quite sure Vince Young will not be around when the next season kicks off. However, other than Collins and maybe Smith, who will still be around? So I suppose that's not a huge deterrent, and Dalton would likely be seen as the short term back up to whoever wins between Collins and Smith. But, the question is whether or not Dalton is needed enough to warrant a top 10 pick in the second round.

Truthfully, this makes some sense. If the Titans rate him high enough, they could afford to give him a year or two behind Collins learning the ropes before stepping into the starting role. This post is half assed. Apologies.

Great article. Please make all TCU alumni proud and change "team's"
to "teams" in the first paragraph- twice! Adding 's does not make a word plural!

Love the work you do. Thanks for keeping us posted on all things TCU.
