I love watching Vince play. He drives me crazy sometimes but the kid is just flat out fun to watch. He's scary he's such a good runner. That one run against Michigan was sick the way he broke tackles. In fact I bet Michigan was sick when they saw that film!

Translation:
Vick - 32 fewer pass attempts, 500 more yards, 4 more TDs, 6 fewer INTs

Vick was way more effective throwing the ball downfield than Young. Young is not the passer that Vick was and does not have Vick's speed. Throwing shorter routes more often explains Young's higher completion percentage.

I think Young is more careless with the ball than Vick was. I also think that Vick has more of a gun. That said, I think Young has some great "P" (potential). He should have his passing skills tested more next year if the Horns don't find a back to run between the tackles. I don't think Selvin Young is the rushing complement to Young that Benson has been.

I think that is what he said Huge. Maybe I don't read it correctly.

How about Vince Young vs. Eric Dickerson? That's who Young reminds me of. Except he's bigger & stronger than Eric. I would love to see Young in the I formation, I think he'd be as good as OU's Adrian Peterson. At least that good.

Vince is a likely 1st pick in the draft if Mack Brown moved him to RB next season. As a QB, he's a project. Compare Young all you want to Vick, but Vick is a better passer. And Vick is a below average NFL passer. How do you beat Michael Vick? You blitz the heck out of him and take the ball out of his hands. That's how the NFL would minimize Young's talent if he plays QB there. Vince could revolutionize the RB position. He doesn't have the talent as a passer to do that as a QB.
