9 straight; that's the number of games Vince Young has won as a starter for the Titans over the last few years including 5 this year.  We know the story; Titans start 0-6 this season including a complete 59-0 dismantling by the hands of the Patriots.  Fisher showing up for a charity event wearing a Peyton Manning jersey.  The team was in the throes of a complete meltdown.  However, Bud "Double Bird" Adams said (not verbatim) "Vince should be the qb", of course this didn't sit well w/Fisher but, he lamented and the rest should we say is history.

I said that to say could Jamarcus be Vince part II?  Both were taken high in the first round and while Vince no doubt has had the better coach and organization on his side, both have had their own personal demons to deal with. 

As Raider fans we are ready for a winning team after 6 going on 7 years of just pure bad football.  Could Jamarcus pull a Vince and be the spark to get the team going in the right direction?
