Re: VY's Mommy: "He's hurting inside and out."
"The Associated Press reports Tennessee Titans QB Vince Young's mother, Felicia Young, said her son has indicated he is 'hurting inside and out' and doesn't want to play football. "What would you think, if you were tired of being ridiculed and persecuted and talked about and not being treated very well, what would you do? What kind of decision would you make?" F. Young said. "He may not want to deal with it (all), but you have to get to that point before you make that decision first." V. Young did not go to the team's offices Monday, Sept. 8, and postponed his MRI until Tuesday, Sept. 9. He also met with a psychologist at his home along with head coach Jeff Fisher and another team official. The questions about his mental state stem from his being booed after throwing a second interception Sunday, Sept. 7. He only returned to the game after pushed by Fisher.
Analysis: It appears as if Young's knee isn't the only body part that's hurting, and if Vince isn't mentally ready to return it doesn't matter if his knee is sound or not. That the Titans brought in Chris Simms so quickly when Young could return to the field in a month or so suggests they're not necessarily sold on his commitment going forward."
"VINCE’S PAST WORDS SPEAK VOLUMES

A reader commenting on this morning’s latest development in the Vince Young saga reminded us about a quote from Young, made at a time when Eagles quarterback Donovan McNabb was complaining that black quarterbacks face greater criticism and scrutiny than white quarterbacks.
“Black or white quarterbacks, we all go through something because that’s the life of a quarterback,” Vince Young said last year. “You’ve got to be able to handle all the pressure. You’ve got to be able to handle the losses. You’ve got to be able to handle the media. If you can’t handle it, you’ve got to get off that position and go play something else.”
And maybe that’s what Vince is currently doing. On Monday, maybe Vince wasn’t thinking about ending his life; perhaps he was only thinking about ending his career.
So why would that have freaked out his family? We can think of more than 50 million reasons."
Mybe it is time for him to go play something else.
All that is necessary for Evil to triumph is for good men to do nothing.
