Vince Young 'hurting inside'

Poor guy gets booed. The Titans need to focus more on character in the draft, imo.

I think his Mom needs to keep her trap shut.

But I think there is a legit question, is VY's heart really into playing football??

I think the guy really, really wants to be a good Quarterback in this league, but he's pretty much where Campbell is in his devlopment curve, and the expectations are really starting to weigh on him.

It was the Titans who foolishly used the 3rd overall pick in 2006 on Young. They should shoulder the responsibility in this.

Coddled athlete syndrome. He's had everyone kissing and wiping his hind-quarters for the last 10 yrs because of his superior physical ability. Now he's in the NFL, where everyone is a great athlete and he's got to work hard and use his head more than he's ever had to.

I hope he's going to be OK in that he isn't going to hurt himself or someone else. But I don't have sympathy for him as an NFL player with a huge contract. This is how Jeff Fisher should handle it.

I think the thread title is a bit extreme.

As for Young (and Leinart and Alex Smith), I can't imagine what it must feel like to be in your mid 20's and feel like everything you've worked for practically your entire life is already being seen as a failure and that your career is flatlining. I mean, I'm 32 and I feel like my life and career are just getting started.

what a baby... i mean, no offense, but grow up.

he didn't have to enter the draft or sign that contract, but he did - he was a top 3 pick, how could he not expect some negativity if he didn't play well? is he that stupid or naive? didn't the titans catch any of this in the pre-draft?

and the mother should know better than to let that out in public... i don't think that's going to help anyone. I imagine this story make life a bit tougher in the locker room too...

He is heading straight down Ryan Leaf territory. This to varying degrees is what happens most often when young(no pun) QBs are thrown into action too early. Look at Rodgers. Granted it is a very small sample of playing time but he doesn't seem off his gourd. Playing QBs early is a bad idea. Despite the relatively few examples of success.

He's only human. I admire that he's willing to consider ending his career in search of happiness.

I'd say his perspective on life is a little 'skewed'. He has alot to be grateful for. Maybe someone will help him see that.

I think it's being overblown. According to reports I've heard over the past few days, he got hurt in the game and was a little bummed out about it according to family. He *gasp* left his house without his cellphone!!! Oh no! The team couldn't find him for a few hours and called the police unnecessarily. He was found at a friend's house watching Monday Night Football and eating food. Oh the humanity. He had an UNLOADED gun in his glove box which he always carries...unloaded. Nothing wrong with that other than a possible need for a permit.

Why are we even reading an article that ends with "But he will be fine if people are prayerful and help my baby boy out. He is a young man. He just needs a lot of love and support." ?

Sounds like an overprotective mother more than problems with Vince himself.

It's not so newsworthy. All that's wrong is that her "baby boy" has a boo-boo and can't play with his friends for a while.

He's not a GREAT QB, but he's far from insane OR Ryan Leaf. Now Mike Vick, there's an insane QB, even before the dogfighting. Flipping off his own fans, making water bottles with false bottoms for the airport...

Sounds like he's had it his whole life because he's Momma's baby boy. :D

The NFL isn't for everyone. Young isn't mentally tough enough to play QB in the NFL. IMO it's the toughest position in sports to play. Only a select few can do it and do it well. It's as simple as that. Plus he's not good enough to consistently make play from the pocket. Floyd Reece blew it on this guy.

Damn, his mouse has a cell phone?! I guess he does have a lot to be grateful for. ;)

Leinart still has a bright future ahead of him IMO. Warner is just a better QB right now. But Leinart can play in the NFL. I don't think Alex Smith can. Smith just doesn't have the ability.
