show me one article that says this about ryans or carr..............this is all you need to know about VY.

Tennessee -- The same weekend that Reggie Bush and Matt Leinart had arguably their best games as pros, Vince Young took down Peyton Manning in the biggest upset of the week. Young and the Titans are officially on fire, winners of three straight and five of their last seven. At 5-7 with games against Houston, Buffalo, and always unpredictable Jacksonville up ahead--playoff dreams are magically still alive in Nashville. The Titans came back from down 14 points, held the Colts to 3 points in the second half, and Rob Biornas hit a 60-yard game winning field goal in the closing seconds. Also worth noting, tailback Travis Henry ripped off 93 yards, becoming the 100th player in NFL history to surpass 5,000 yards rushing in a career. The Titans were supposed to be 3-4 years away. Give 'em a stud receiver in April's draft, and we can be talking playoff shoe-in for '07. -- foxsports.com

VY took down Peyton, huh, a miracle 60 yard kick with the wind behind him, which by the way was not VY. Keep building him up because that will make his falls that much harder. But since he is the Savior now for Tenn., I sure don't want to hear "Oh his just a rook" when the tables turn.

you wont.................another question for you folks...............do you think Bob McNair allows the Titans to introduce VY at the origin of the game in Houston this week?

If you watched the game you would know VY completed a 30 yard pass to get them in that position. He also slipped on our crappy turf on 3rd down and had the presence of mind to throw it away and not take the loss.

Bironas kicked it, but Vince put us in the position...

Young was part of it. He made a positive difference. So did the RB, the defense, and the kicker. Take away anyone of those players and Tennessee loses. Young didn't do it all and he didn't let them lose either. He's really good for a rookie. We get it. He also had a lot of help, just like his defense helped him in the Championship. It's a team sport. Nobody's saying Vince Young sucks (well, OK, there's a few pot-stirrers :rolleyes:), but teams win, not individuals.

look I can understand the sour grapes on giving the Titans their due but VY has nothing short of spectacular the last two weeks...............give him some props...........a rookie QB with the national media telling everyone att he draft that he would not do a thing for 3 yrs..............he is doing it after 5 GS....................with VY Bironas is a footnote on a roster page.

I did watch the game. At least you acknowledge another player. I'm just sick of the BUSH/VY man crushers making things out like it was a one player win. Shoot if I had to give props it would be to your Defense and your running game.

Here's the problem, people:

You're on the Texans message board trying to convince people that Vince Young is good.


We know. We just don't particularly want to hear it every 5 seconds.

If Collins had resembled a QB he would have sat the bench a year or two.

I like to give alot of the credit to the Titans revival lately to Travis Henry. Dude is near 900 yards playing in only 10 games. 4.4 yards avg. Huge.

That being said, it took a total stinker for Tennessee to beat us the first time in Tennessee.

That may be true my cheezy friend....

But the Titans have steadily gotten better, knocking off teams some consider to be top tier competition.....And down here in lil ol' Hurston, we've been pretty much stuck in neutral, and going backwards in some aspects....

I think the Texans can win, but right now I'd have to say the Titans have a better team....

Travis has said VY is the reason he is getting alot of holes because teams are spying on VY to stop him...........so it takes a S or LB out of the box............tyhat is what the Colts did and VY still killed them. If you look at TH 93 yds or VY 80 yds you will see one fact..............VY ran 9 times 7 for a first down...............TH got most of his on two runs................VY is doing some amazing things................you should have read the comments of Bob sanders, Freeney and Polian post game...............they came away awestruck because of how good he has gotten since he lost to them by one in INDY.........................We'll see if the Texans think he is the same guy.

The difference between teams is one has a dynamic and improving QB (VY) while the other has garbage at QB (Carr). We are very similar other than that. Their OL is no better or worse than ours and their running game is better because their QB is one of the greatest runners in the history of football.
