You're looking at the possibility of Young "burning bright" for less time if he gets injured or Young never reaching his potential and being very average for a longer time in an attempt to lengthen his years on the field. What good is that if he's playing at a low level?
Drafting him because of his success as an instinctive player who has a "ok to fairly good" arm that he gets a lot out of because he's got great wheels and then trying to make him something he's not defeats the purpose and makes the Titans look stupid. If they wanted a guy to sit in the pocket and throw passes they should have drafted Leinart and deep down inside I think that Fisher knows that.
But a weaker Titans team is a plus for us so I'm not complaining. I just think they're wasting what he could be trying to turn him into something he'll never be and that this is not helped by his overall immaturity. He's going through a frustrating time and is ill-equipped to deal with it.
Thanks Herv for injecting some knowledge, perspective, and logic into this illogical thread. Props to you and may you have a great day.
I love your sig, too. Remember that RS came from the 'Glanville Coaching Tree'...not exactly the Bill Walsh tree or the Parcells tree, huh. That is about the first time I have ever heard the 'Glanville Coaching Tree'. We should have gone after Buddy's son from Oakland imho. Maybe Cowher could bring in a more capable replacement or even lure LeBeau from Steelerland.
