Yeah, I don't get everyone hating on Vince Young. I knew a lot of people were gonna be pissed about him getting Madden, but why? It's not like it's the Pro Bowl. You don't "earn" the Madden cover. I'm glad it's not LT or someone I really like. Don't get me wrong, I like Young, but he'll probably have the "curse" bite him this year.

The man only completed 51.5% of his passes, and threw 13 ints while throwing for only 12 tds. So the better question would be, why does everyone think he's the next great QB of all time?

ps- there were better options for ROY, but for some reason the media has exhaulted VY.

Well don't forget the 5 rushing TDs as well, and the fact taht under Young the Titans won 5 games in a row (when many didn't even pick them to win 5 all year)

But I think that a lot of the Vince Young "haters" here think that the rest of us have anointed him the heir apparent to great QBs. I can tell you, from my perspective, that's not the case. We're just saying he had a pretty solid rookie year, helped the Titans significantly overachieve, looks to be an exciting and marketable player for years to come and should only get better. Was he the best choice to be on the cover? Probably not, but it's not a bad choice

Ok, point taken good football player, but a terrible QB.

FYI, I know this hurts my point, but it was 7 rushing tds.

It was a team effort, and while Vince's LEGS helped acheive that, his arm didn't help too much at all. He's the next Kordell Stewart. Flashy, and can win with his legs, but when push comes to shove, won't amount to much. I hope he follows the path of McNabb, not Vick. If he follows McNabb, he could be something special...but right now, he's a terrible QB with exceptional scrambling ability.

I don't think the only descriptions of Vince Young have to be terrible or great. Those seem like two extremes that don't really describe him.

No, right now, he is terrible...he should be working towards greatness. It's about the travel from A to B. If I was a wagering man, I'd say he's not going to make it. He has a TON of work to do to be even a good qb.

Ok, fine. You think he's terrible. Moving on

How are we going to move on. Vince Young is what this thread is about.

I dare ya to lock it down.

My point wasn't that he was terrible as much as he has a lot of work to do. He can do it, he has the tools...but will he? He's a young kid, with a ton of potential.

Which is essentially what I've been saying

either way Jason Campbell will ultimately be better :)
