I only brought that up b/c everyone was so enamored with what he was doing that year, they tend to forget all about how that defense was shutting teams down, creating turnovers & getting VY extra possessions so he could do what he did.
Yeah, he played great that year, but if his defense hadn't held OSU to FG's after all his turnovers, they likely would've been out of the national championship picture by the 2nd week.
It's looking the same way now in the pros. VY scrambles for a relatively easy 4 yd. TD & people go nuts, meanwhile, a defense that's been lights out pretty much the whole year is looked over.
Bullock had it right when he said "we're more than Vince Young.."
