Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams cost himself a cool $250,000 by giving the Bills the literal finger a few weeks ago (Bill Cowher was more suavely figurative in doing it when the Bills inquired about his availability). But Adams may have saved himself millions in future signing-bonus money for Sam Bradford by forcing Jeff Fisher to play Vince Young. All of a sudden, the Titans have their quarterback of the future and a playoff run in the present.
Young is now 4-0 as a starter for the Titans and looked downright Texas-like against the Texans, throwing a touchdown, running for 73 yards and successfully handing the ball to Chris Johnson. But how convinced are you that a guy who seemed on the verge of bust status is really the quarterback to lead the Titans into the future?
