Kerry Michael Collins (born December 30, 1972, in Lebanon, Pennsylvania) is an American football quarterback for the Tennessee Titans of the National Football League. He was drafted by the Carolina Panthers with the fifth overall pick of the 1995 NFL Draft (The first-ever draft choice in team history). He played college football at Penn State, where he was a Heisman Trophy finalist during his senior season in 1994.
Kerry Collins played college football at Penn State University, where he earned many awards. As a quarterback, he was named All-American in 1994 by the Associated Press, United Press International, The Football News, Football Writers Association of America, Walter Camp and The Sporting News.
Collins also captured two of college football’s major postseason prizes — the Maxwell Award, presented to the nation’s outstanding player, and the Davey O’Brien Award, which goes to the nation’s top quarterback.
Collins finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy balloting that year. Also, he was chosen UPI Back-of-the-Year and garnered Player-of-the-Year honors from ABC-TV/Chevrolet and the Big Ten Conference. Collins made a serious run at the NCAA season passing efficiency record, falling just four points short (172.8), the fourth-highest figure in NCAA annals.
He broke Penn State season records for total offense (2,660), completions (176), passing yardage (2,679), completion percentage (66.7), yards per attempt (10.15) and passing efficiency (172.86). He had 14 consecutive completions at Minnesota, another Penn State record. Collins was the linchpin of an explosive offense that shattered 14 school records and led the nation in scoring (47.8 ppg.) and total offense (520.2 ypg.).
With 5,304 career passing yards, Collins ranks No. 3 in Penn State annals and is one of only three quarterbacks to top 5,000 yards through the air. Through his passion and leadership, the 1994 Nittany Lions completed an undefeated season, the fifth under coach Joe Paterno, capped by a Rose Bowl championship over Oregon. His team was awarded the NCAA Division I-A national football championship by the New York Times. Collins was also a member of Alpha Kappa Lambda fraternity.
Collins was selected as the Carolina Panthers’ first-round pick (fifth overall) in the 1995 NFL Draft. He was the first player ever chosen by the Panthers in the annual college draft, though other players—some free agents, as well as players from the expansion draft—had previously signed with the team.
In his three seasons with the Panthers, he threw for 7,295 yards, 39 touchdowns, and 49 interceptions. His completion percentage was 52.6% and his quarterback rating was 65.6. In his second season, he led the Panthers to the NFC Championship Game
Before the 1997 season got underway, Collins’ private battle with alcoholism started to make public headlines. Collins threw 21 interceptions during the 1997 season, and the Panthers finished 7–9, just one season after advancing to the NFC Championship.
Collins was placed on waivers by Carolina during the 1998 season and subsequently signed by the New Orleans Saints. On November 2, 1998, Collins was arrested for drunk driving in Charlotte, North Carolina. He finished the 1998 campaign in New Orleans and signed with the New York Giants as a free agent on February 19, 1999
In a highly publicized incident, on the last night of Carolina Panthers training camp in 1997 Collins used the offensive racial slur “nigger” in reference to Black teammate Muhsin Muhammad while in a drunken state at a bar in Spartanburg, SC. Supposedly, Collins also inadvertently slurred offensive lineman Norberto Garrido, who is of Hispanic descent.
This resulted in Collins being punched in the eye by Garrido. Collins had stated, in an intoxicated state, that he thought the use of the racial epithet would help him and his teammates bond.
When Collins was a member of the New York Giants, he revealed that for four of his five years there he remained in therapy to deal with that issue and others.
As a member of the Tennessee Titans, he said that “The guys were talking to each other that way, and I was trying to be funny and thought I could do it, too. I was so upset by it. It was bad judgment. I could have been labeled a racist for the rest of my career.
I had to live with the way I used that word with a teammate. Extremely poor judgment. I was naïve to think I could use that word in any context.”
Not long after signing with New York, Collins decided to seek treatment for his alcoholism. He entered a rehabilitation clinic in Topeka, Kansas. No sooner did Collins get his personal life back on track than his professional career followed. Collins started the 1999 season as the Giants’ second-string quarterback but soon claimed the starting job.
In the 2000 season, Collins led the Giants to Super Bowl XXXV, where they lost to the Baltimore Ravens. During the 2001 season, Collins set a single-season NFL record with 23 fumbles (Collins’ record was tied in 2002 by then-Minnesota Vikings quarterback Daunte Culpepper). After five seasons, sixty-eight starts and 16,875 yards in New York, Collins was released by the Giants in 2004. The team had already signed former league MVP Kurt Warner and traded for 2004’s #1 draft pick, Eli Manning. After his release, Collins signed a three-year, $16.82 million contract with the Oakland Raiders.
Collins began the 2004 season as the team’s backup to Rich Gannon but took over the starting role when Gannon suffered a neck injury in the third week of the regular season.
Collins was the team’s starting quarterback for the 2005 season, after Gannon’s retirement.
The 2005 Raiders season started off well for Collins, but he was benched after a Week 13 loss to the San Diego Chargers. However, he regained his starting job two weeks later against the Cleveland Browns (a 9–7 loss at home). After two seasons and a 7–21 record with the Raiders, Collins was cut on March 10, 2006, in what was at least partially a move designed to free space with the salary cap.
On August 28, 2006, Collins agreed in principle to a deal of unknown length and money with the Tennessee Titans. After three games, all losses for the Titans, Collins had completed less than half his passes and had thrown one touchdown and six interceptions. Vince Young, who played extensively as a substitute in the second game, started the fourth through sixth games while Collins saw no playing time in any of them. On March 5, 2007, he re-signed with the Titans.
After Titans quarterback Vince Young was pulled from the game on September 14, 2008, Collins finished the game and was named the Titans starting quarterback for the rest of 2008 later in the week. On September 21, 2008, Collins became just the 15th player in NFL history to pass for more than 35,000 yards.
Coming into the game against the Houston Texans, Collins needed only 90 yards to eclipse the mark. On his 9th completion of 13 attempts, Collins completed a 17-yard pass to Justin McCareins to give him 107 yards on the day and 35,007 yards for his career.
Won the 1994 Maxwell Award (Nation’s top college player)
Won the 1994 Davey O’Brien Award (Nation’s top college quarterback)
Selected to the NFL Pro Bowl following the 1996 season
Throughout his career, Collins has been one of the NFL’s most charitable players. Immediately upon signing his rookie contract with the Carolina Panthers, he donated $250,000 to the Penn State athletic department to permanently endow the quarterback position.
He has donated over 2 million dollars to charities such as Big Brothers/Big Sisters and the Harlem Boys Choir. In 2001, Collins donated $120,000 to Manhattan’s Ladder 5/Engine 24 Family Relief following the September 11th attack on the World Trade Center.
Through the KC for Kids Fund of the Kerry Collins Foundation, Collins has donated more than $500,000 for the renovation of the Rusk Institute of Rehabilitation Medicine, a children’s unit within the NYU Medical Center. Previously Collins donated $100,000 to the Institute, to establish the Kerry M. Collins Computer Center and Classroom, with specially modified equipment for infirmed children.
During the 2005 season, Collins pledged $1,000 for every touchdown he threw and every game the Raiders won to the American Red Cross Hurricane Katrina relief fund. On March 24, 2006, Collins was honored by The Second Mile Foundation in recognition of his commitment to others.
Being that Kerry Collins is a 12 in shoe sizes, and we carry five lengths past his size, we carry up to a 17 in length for men and for women we carry up to 15 in length. I don’t know Kerry’s width but if he needs a wider width, “Extra Wide Shoes’ or “Wide Wide Shoes” then we have that for him as well being that we carry up to 14E width, and that is women’s as well.
I need to talk to the men out there. Is your 6E hurting your feet? I have received three calls this week stating that problem. This is why our 9E program has been an unbelievable success!!!! Oh, a note: all 3 of those men love their new 9E width shoes!!
All so what is so important about those FREE 3 sets of inserts. First, we are the only site on the internet that offers 3 sets FREE!!! Second, if your feet hurt on the bottom, it is because the lack of support and this is what these heat moldable customized inserts do for your feet. More foundation and they mold to the plantar(bottom) of your foot and creates that maximum support, balance, and comfort.
WE NOW HAVE 80 NEW STYLES FOR MEN’S, AND WOMEN’S IN FASHION FOOTWEAR added to our website. Also, we have a whole new division of 9E widths for men. We are the only internet site, on the web, to offer FREE 3 sets of inserts for every purchase of a pair of shoes for men and women. These inserts created an added support, balance, customization and added circulation to the foot! The reason for three sets, FREE, is that the material on the upper will compress down over time, and the material loses its effect of creating heat for added circulation benefits. So every four months you replace them, and you have a whole supply for One Year.
The question I get is “what does this have to do with the working environment?” Besides this being an interesting story and you as a reader to understand the need for proper length and width for your feet to be 100 percent comfortable. The fewer distractions and the better health, in your life, the more output and outlook you’ll have towards life and especially towards work. Meaning that you gain better status in your working environment, and your total daily production is not at risk. If your shoe is too large, too tight, too heavy (in weight), no support, wow what a comfort problem!! A SIGNIFICANT FACT, IF YOU HAVE AN EMPLOYEE THAT IS MISFIT IN A PAIR OF SHOES (TO SMALL OR WHATEVER) then you have a miserable employee, and production is the guarantee to be at a lower rate!
Women’s and Men’s Wide Shoes” then we have that for her as well-being that we carry up to 14E width, and that is men’s as well.
Health is the number one priority for any person but especially a person who is diabetic or has foot conditions. We also want to create the appropriate health for your feet, and this will occur by proper footwear and the correct inserts. This following information, you’ll be reading, is what is needed to obtain this perfect health for your feet.
Now, if we can get you in the proper footwear and hopefully you’ll allow these two items to be part of your lifestyle. These things will be working towards this success in keeping the disease out of your feet. We, at dtfootwear.com, can show you the proper footwear and the need to have the proper inserts to maintain this diabetes out of your feet. Footwear as to have fashion (that we have) but the shoe is to control upper support and off-load any problems that you have at the top of your foot. Now, if you have problems, on the bottom of your feet, then it is the job of the properly removable insert to correct these issues. Everybody feels that it is the shoe that solves all the problems for a diabetic or a person who has major foot problems and that is not true. It takes two majors elements to off-loading, corrections, significant added support and develops combined circulation, which needs to keep this disease out of your feet. All diabetic shoes need not have inside seams to create irritation.
Number one item: Proper shoes need to be a Therapeutic/Comfort (please!), not Comfort shoes (that many diabetic suppliers furnishes in this business today).
Number two is Customized Heat Moldable Plastazote Insert. Beside excellent support, added off-loading advantages, develops a better balance for walking or running and the added two percent that raise the temperature of the bottom of your feet and produces combined circulation to keep the disease out of your feet. What added pleasures and advantages to just one item. Oh, yes these inserts are provided, by us, FREE when you purchase a pair of shoes – unbelievable!!!!
Please take this blog very serious because if you could spend a day with us – you would not believe the different types of a complication of not having the proper footwear and inserts and not taking care of your feet.
So, how you see the importance of a Diet and the proper footwear make your feet healthy at all times.
We have the best athletic, casual, elegant designs, walking styles of men’s and women’s in the Therapeutic/Comfort line of shoes in the country. We have the length and the widths and where proud of our designs and construction in the world of “Women’s Wide Shoes.” Any person that needs correct width needs to know that the shoes need an extension on the sole of the shoe to adequately house their foot with no hangover with their feet to the shoe. Meaning that every width, with us (in a good percentage of our shoes), have two widths wider at the outsole of the shoe? So if you need a 6E width, we’ll have an 8E bottom for the base of that width. So again no hangover for your feet and a perfect base for your feet to have all the support and balance that is needed.
A Comfort shoe is usually not a Therapeutic shoe, and a Comfort shoe usually has little midsection support. The lack of the Mid-Section support allows your feet to be moving forward and lateral at the same time. These two movements add a great deal more wear and tear on your feet. If you need a view of all our styles, please go to our site dtfootwear.com
We, at DTF, have grave concern for diabetics and their need for properly fitted footwear. We can provide “wide widths” – 2E to 14E – in both men’s and women’s footwear, and we can help those who have difficulty finding “oversizes” – 11 to 17 in length. We, also, can provide footwear in “under sizes” – 4 to 6 in length. In addition to being capable of providing these full widths in fashionable styles of Therapeutic/Comfort footwear; we are offering a gift to you! With every pair of shoes purchased, we will include up to (3) sets of Customized Heat Moldable Inserts that will provide even more support, added balance and stability every time you wear your shoes. Again, ALL FOR FREE!!
