Did Vince Young quit on the Titans? Welcome back, Lance Armstrong
Vince Young appears to have quit on the Tennessee Titans Sunday afternoon. Nothing could be more damaging to an athletes reputation or standing in the locker room.
Someone had better pull this guy aside and tell him that how badly he's screwing up. Maybe he'll listen to Mack Brown or Greg Davis. It seems clear he's not going to listen to anyone associated with the Titans.
Here's how it unfolded. Young was booed loudly midway through the fourth quarter in Nashville after throwing his second interception. According to the Tennessean, Young pushed away DT Albert Haynesworth, who was trying to console him, and took a seat on the bench.
When the Titans got the ball back, Young seemed reluctant to go back on the field. Kerry Collins took some snaps before Jeff Fisher seemed to gesture for Young to go back into the game.
Fisher later said that Young's hamstring was bothering him and he didn't know if he could continue.
''It's not an issue,'' Fisher said. "It is OK; he is our quarterback. It is not a controversy. ... We are lucky we have Kerry.''
Young did go back on the field and suffered a knee injury four plays later.
"I am under the assumption something happened to him and he was hurt," center Kevin Mawae told the newspaper.
Young hadn't won any friends by following up a terrible second season by spending much of the off-season in Austin to work on his degree. It's admirable that he's committed to finishing school, but where's his commitment to the team that gave him the $50-million contract? Stay tuned.
