Default Re: Titans QB Vince Young In Crotches After Knee Injury

Quote:
it wasn't freedom in the since "here do what you need to do to win" but more of fisher understanding that he has a young qb struggling to learn an offense & giving him the leeway to basically make plays the best he could. McNabb, Young & Rothlisberger all basically came in the league doing the same things. Unlike vince though, they eventually caught on to what you have to do to be successful as a qb in the NFL; learn to pass the ball...consistently down field. Plus the league just hadn't figured out how to scheme him yet.
VY isn't any of those guys..........which isn't a bad thing imo.........if he's good at it, you have to go with what works for him, and gives you the best chance to win. The coaches job is to put players in the best position to succeed..............VY is best at scrambling..............and he's not even a "wild" scrambler, very rarely does he get hit hard scrambling, because of his running style......................let em run coach.

Offensive schemes change? Hummer playes Fisher ball too and frankly any pass over 20 yards should not have been thrown. They looked awefull. Most of the long gains came off of YAC. Chris Johnson alone was the main reason we won. Even the TD pass put Johnson in an ackward position but he kept his balance and was wide open.

Yes. Year 1 they gave him a lot more freedom. Year 2 they pushed Vince to stay in the pocket and complete passes.......And he has a new coordinator in this year.......I stick by my statement.
