I don't know when I'll start again. But I will be the next black quarterback to win a Super Bowl. And I will be in the Hall of Fame.

However this was the first thing for him to say ...


Quarterbacking is all in the legs. You don't even really need a good arm. Of course, I work on it all, but it's all in the legs.

Don't need a good arm in the NFL? OK, I guess we'll see about that.

One also needs some intelligence.

It also helps if one is the "starting" QB on a team.

Oh god, here comes the next "Bash VY" thread on TT.

Well, he certainly keeps opening up his mouth and giving people ammunition to spray him with, when he continues to make these foolish comments like this.

Vince, how about being the next QB to start for the Titans first. Work on simply becoming a starter. Baby steps, baby steps, man.

Does it really count as bashing when the guy does it to himself?

Pretty sure Hookem is not a VY hater either.

The Eagles look ready to challenge deeply into the playoffs and they actually have a black guy as a starting QB so I think VY's chances are slimmer than McNabb's.

If you read my post you'd see that I acknowledged that VY gave the ammunition for this and said that his comments were foolish, so you're taking what I said and making it into something else.

As long as he is on Bud's payroll all bets are off. His "this is my house" crap at Reliant didn't help his cause either.

Unlike many Longhorn fans my rooting interest for UT players ceases when they trade in their burnt orange for their NFL colors unless they play for a team I root for. If VY ever ends up playing for the Texans then I will wish him all the best.

BTW, us Austin area Texans fans had to put up with a lot of crap because of VY. Sure I know it's not his fault however him failing at the NFL has made that situation a lot better around here.

Also I started this thread in the Rivalry section. Bashing Titans players is a good part of what this section is all about. :)

I wasn't trying to refer to him, I was just referring to people on this board in general because of "the appetite" for crushing the guy.

However, he continues to open up his mouth and sound foolish and immature, so the water falls of VY threads will most likely continue as he puts so many toes in his mouth. I can't really blame anyone for it with his recent comments over the last few months including this.

I think one of the bigger problems with him is that dumb agent of his, that doesn't have clue how to manage an athlete with VY being his one and only guy. His agent doesn't know how to control what he says to the media, and any smart agent would have put a muzzle on Vince a long time ago and not let him just run his mouth off like this over and over.

How could I hate the guy that helped Texas win two BCS Bowl Game? The one that promised that the Longhorns were gonna come back to Pasadena? How could I hate the guy that brought back a National freakin Championship to Austin?

Because he plays for some team that we all hate? It isn't like he choose to go to Tennessee. He left Texas so the Texans could draft him, but apparently, they didn't.

So what if he cost us some games back then? It didn't matter anyways, and it wasn't like he cost us a Playoffs. And yeah, I did cry when he ran that 49 yards TD in OT. Sure it pains me that he plays for Bud Adams, but I'll always root for him, tho never for the Titans.

A lot of players helped us win the NC and I never said I literally hated VY. However I will be happy to take shots at him whenever he gives me the opportunity (as long as he is a Titan). Why, maybe it's because of all the Texans bashing I have had to deal with here in Austin because of VY coupled with everything Titans. Maybe it has something to do with the fact that Austin TV has opted to show the Titans over the Texans because of VY.

Again, I don't get why I have to root for UT players at the NFL level just because they went to UT, especially if they play for a team I despise.

I am like this at all levels. What if a player from my High School goes to OU? Do I need to root for them at OU just because they played for the HS team I root for? Sorry, all bets are off once they become a Sooner. I don't see why this is so hard to comprehend.

However all of that being said I will say that I root hard for Okam and Studdard. Oh, and Aaron Ross (I am a fan of the Giants also).

Good point. I don't hate any player, however there are some I want to fail just like there are some that I want to succeed. Some I don't really care.

Here is the equation

Vince Young at Texas = I want him to succeed because I am a Longhorn fan. When VY throws a TD, Texas scores a TD, when VY wins, Texas wins.

Vince Young as a Titan = I want him to fail because I am a Texans fan. When VY throws a TD, the Titans score a TD, when VY wins, the Titans win.

You know, maybe if one is not an NFL fan, doesn't have any rooting interest and only lives for Saturdays then I get them casually rooting for the guys in the NFL who played for their college team. However to me this is just as annoying as sitting next to a bunch of fantasy guys cheering on players on their fantasy team.

Well I understand your stance here Hookem. That's the way you see things and your fanship obviously stops for UT players once they leave the school unless they're playing for the Texans. I can't say that's a negative thing for any reason. To each it's own I guess. However, I don't see how you wouldn't also understand why many fans would root for their favorite college players from their favorite schools as they go into the NFL and further their careers. You may have a different take on that, but I'm sure you can understand why others still do root for their favorite UT players or USC players if they're a USC fan or from a school like Michigan or whatever.

Maybe it's because I root for teams not indidual players. If Andre Johnson decides to leave the Texans via free agency some day and go play for the Cowboys I won't be rooting for him there despite the fact he was one of my favorite Texans.

Speaking of AJ, I didn't root for him at Miami because I am not a fan of the Hurricanes.

Admittedly, I will admit it is pretty cool if a player I rooted for in college (because he played for UT) ends up playing for my favorite NFL team. For example Earl Campbell will always be one of my favorite players because I had the priviledge to root for him from college through the pros. If Earl would have been drafted by the Cowboys I would have remembered him as a great Longhorn however someone I didn't root for at the NFL level. Because I am more of a NFL fan I would probably think of him more as a Cowboy than a Longhorn, therefore not having fond memories of him.

It's a priority by default. They end up in the NFL, so that's where the final allegiance is going to be made. If they happen to land on a team that you like, then you can continue rooting for them. But land on a team that you despise *cough*Titans/Cowboys*cough* then the decision has been made for you. :howdy:

To me treason is rooting for a team that screwed over its fans and left the state of Texas. Rooting for VY IS rooting for the Titans. You cannot seperate the two and most here in Austin don't try to.

Of course I am proud of what VY did at Texas. Actually I am proud of the entire team for winning us a NC in 2005. That was a killer game and was a blast to watch. However I am now more interested in the 2009 UT roster and Colt McCoy. As a Longhorn fan Colt is the only QB I feel obligated to be rooting for this season.

Hear, hear.

I don't want him to be a bust. Simply to under-perform in a manner to unquestion our man Mario.

No matter your alma mater, how could a Texan, resident, native et al, not take pride in his performance vs USC? It strikes me as bordering on state treason!:)

Yeah I am sure all those Aggies are cheering for him right now.

i emigrated here in my teens. Went to UH; attended a few away games vs UT & TAMU during the Ware era. I felt the contempt of the crowd - i get it.

But really? When it's an in-state school vs an out-of-state (especially a big-time program)***? A TAMU, TT, UT, TCU win only legitimizes the football being played in our state. Rispek!

Perhaps i'm ignorant of the schools' histories vs each other; some Auburn v Alabama dirty pool type stuff.

If interested, you should read some of the history about the the ol' Southwest Conference. It was a great conference. I know that you mentioned you were here during the Ware days, but that was towards the end of the SWC. It basically fell apart shortly after those asshats in Arkansas jumped ship and SMU was busted.

The conference started off consisting of teams from only three states until the mid 20's. Then the conference consisted of all teams being from Texas except one - Arkansas. That's a lot of great football coming from the state of Texas.

As you read the history, some of the names involved are incredible. Names like Earl Campbell, Darrell Royal, Paul "Bear" Bryant, John David Crow, Hayden Fry, Sammy Baugh, Doak Walker, Lance Alworth, Bill Yoeman and on and on and on.... Good stuff.
