Titans owner Bud Adams wants Vince Young starting at quarterback beginning with Sunday's game against the Jaguars. Following the 59-0 loss to the Patriots on Oct. 18 that dropped the Titans to 0-6, Adams told The Tennessean he'd made Coach Jeff Fisher aware of his desire to see Young play. In the past week the 86-year-old owner has been more direct, according to sources familiar with the situation. Adams wants the change now. At his weekly press conference earlier in the day, Fisher was non-committal when asked if Kerry Collins or Young would start this week, citing competitive reasons. (Tennessean)Comment
As another NBA season opens, the Lakers are positioned well, with arguably the best player and coach in the league. Forbes magazine thinks the Lakers have something else: the most overpaid player in the league, Andrew Bynum. Tom Van Riper writes, "Leading the pack [of most overpaid players] is Los Angeles Lakers center Andrew Bynum, a first-round pick out of high school four years ago who's churned out nine points and six rebounds in 21 minutes per game as a pro."

D.C. United has engaged in serious talks with a Virginia jurisdiction about a new stadium, club president Kevin Payne told the Insider. He declined to identify the city or county but said -- no surprise -- that the stadium site would be outside the Capital Beltway. "Where are we going to find [affordable and available] land inside the Beltway?" he said. Earlier this month, Baltimore entered the stadium discussion by expressing interest in a possible project near Camden Yards and I-95. "The location is very attractive," Payne said. But by moving to Baltimore, wouldn't DCU have to rebuild its fan base? "We probably would," he said. "But we have to get an answer to a stadium." (Washington Post)Comment
