re: Vince Young 'hurting inside'

I think he probably is not used to having people boo and jeer him, becuase he has been a superior athlete to those he played with from the pee wee leagues to college. Now on this grand stage, he is under performing for the first time, is being booed and has no idea how to deal with it. I don't think its a matter of him being soft or weak, but he does not have the tools to deal with the situation

re: Vince Young 'hurting inside'

He is just a kid and I can see how this stuff gets tough to take at such a young age. How many QB's have failed because of the preasure and not because of their ability. I say a bunch and a bunch that we don't even know how they where affected by the preasure of the game. People point out that he was picked 3rd in the draft and signed a big contract but that to me even adds more preasure for him to perform. How do we know that our own QB is not getting hit by doupt or his confidence shaken. We just don't know how though it is and I'm not going to pile on a kid when going through this.

Young has ability. He's no Patrick Ramsey.


If he can just continue to work hard and improve a little every year, he can be a Donovan McNabb-type QB.

"Meet me in my hole at 11 p.m."

***unintelligible squeaks from the other end of the phone***

"No, oh OK, we'll meet in your hole again. See you at 11."

re: Vince Young 'hurting inside'

I don't believe in coddling athletes or feeling particularly sorry for them, but I think Vince deserves a break on this one. He was getting booed, then he went down with what he initially thought was a season ending knee injury...

He has a lot of pressure on him and he's a very young man. Getting booed in the same game where you think you've torn up your knee is pretty rough. I understand why he was upset. He wanted to get away and hang with a friend and didn't want the distraction of his cell phone. Understandable. Give the kid a break.

When healthy, McNabb is a top NFL QB who can beat you from the pocket as well as with his legs. I don't see Young as a guy who will ever be able to beat anyone from the pocket.

We'll never know until he gets better receivers than Justin Gage and McCareins.

re: Vince Young 'hurting inside'

VY's character has nothing to do with this. I think VY and the Titans are realizing that what made him so good in college doesnt work in the pros. In order to be successful VY is going to have to completely revise the way he plays QB and that isnt going to be easy.

I think what the Titans and other teams need to do is draft QBs who's skill set closely matches what is needed in the pros. The Titans screwed up drafting VY as their franchise QB.

I mean, I'm 32 and I feel like my life and career are just getting started.
Exactly. I like how so many here (and elsewhere) are so quick to cast stones without having any idea of the situation. He could have actual mental health issues or it could be nothing or whatever. Athletes owe you nothing, and just because you think you would like nothing more than to spend one day in their shoes does not give you the right to decry them if they don't want to play for whatever reason. Of course if people on a message board were drawing snap conclusions about a Redskin (Sean Taylor) I'm sure no one here would raise a fuss or anything. Just another example of our cultural obsession with celebrity.

Excellent post. My thoughts exactly.

I don't see VY becoming the passser that McNabb is either.

But then again, coming out of college a lot of people had serious doubts about McNabb ever developing into a quality passing QB and he's definitely beaten those odds.

maybe he needs Michael Lewis and Hank Baskett? this is one of the most ridiculous statements ever made around here. Young can be a fine nfl qback. even maybe as good as Michael Vick. but no way he ever becomes the top 5 QB that Mcnabb is. just not his style

re: Vince Young 'hurting inside'

How come people say VY does not have the talent to play in the NFL but then hop to another thread supporting JC and think he will be OK.

I agree that Tenn is at fault for not getting better receiving options for VY, but did you see his interceptions on Sunday? I don't care if he has TO, Moss, and Reggie Wayne, those throws were AWFUL. I could have picked those passes off. He throws the kind of INTs that really show he doesn't have much of an ability to see the field and read NFL secondaries.
