I was going to post this, almost verbatim except with a few more expletives. Well said.

The only funny thing about it is that they've only collected 47 bucks, from a total of 8 people. That was money better spent at Double Dave's for Pep'roni Rolls and Shiner.

Or, 1 more dollar and they could order one Prime Ribeye with sautéed mushrooms off this pertinent menu.

So basically Vince can't even afford a ticket to get into "his house" to see "his team" play the Texans on Sunday.

Sad but I can live with that.

Vince Young vows to “fight hard” for another chance in the NFL

“I made some mistakes. And when you have the type of mistakes that I have, being quarterback in the NFL, it can ruin your career. So right now, I’m trying to fight hard to give it another go, another shot,” Young said.

There has to be some talk among NFL insiders that is keeping him from getting signed. I was never an advocate for him coming here but look around the league and honestly say he isn't better than many of the 2nd and 3rd string QB's.

Or to put a blunt point on it, if the Texans had to go out on Monday to play would you rather have Carr or VY starting?

I was thinking along the same lines. I thought for sure he'd be a good
candidate for San Francisco or even Kansas City. Lack of talent just can't
be the primary reason he's out of the league.

Default Re: Vince Young is broke and out of work

Dude is a great athlete. He should take the attitude of making a team at any position. I know guys get stuck on having to play QB once they've done it, but VY could line up at TE and probably be pretty good at it.

I think his little stunt with Fisher is what has haunted him. The perception is that he quit his team, and that's something that will follow a player.

Im sure the inside talk is he is lazy and isnt reliable or something of the sort so while he may be better in terms of ability whos to say he will be around when you need him.

While the Fisher incident didn't help, he still was signed twice after that. The Eagles kept him for a year and saw horrible results including 4TD passes compared to 9 interceptions. In spite of that, the Bills still saw fit to sign him to a contract and despite giving him almost all of the off-season and pre-season to prove himself as a backup, let him go in favor of Tarvaris Jackson. Chan Gailey's exact quote when releasing Vince was:
Quote:
He didn’t quite get everything that we were trying to do and we were asking him to do some things that probably didn’t fit him.
To me that essentially means he's not capable of picking up an offensive system (again - even with OTA's, Mini-camp and Training Camp). Physical talent is one thing, but it's trumped when you're a QB and aren't smart enough.

Probably has a lot more to do with his attitude, work ethic, etc, than his talent.

Gun to my head between Carr and VY, just pull the trigger. I'd probably take experience over the still raw, unwillingness to do the work required of the position talent that is VY.

If he gets his head on right and does the work that it takes to be successful in this league, because talent alone doesn't get it done, then more power to him. For now, I'll take Case Keenum over him in a heartbeat.

Ya know my answer!! I don't want VY anywhere near our TEXANS, and that includes anywhere in the stadium!! If I see him on the front row of my section, where several friends of some of our players have been this year, I'll make it my goal to make sure he gets all the beer he could ever want, and none of it will end up in his stomach!!

He's not. He's probably not appreciably worse, either. But when you get down the depth chart like that, things other than the ability to run around the football field come into play. Coaches want to know that you can study the play book and learn the offense enough to come in at a moment's notice and at least give the guys around you a chance to win. VY doesn't have that.

I'd take Mr. Checkdown. At least he knows where the outlet receiver is and he won't turn the ball over much. It'd be a defense and running game type of game. Furthermore, I think NFL coaches would take Carr over VY, because they know they can plan around his limitations. VY out there is just too much of a wild card for them. Coaches are control freaks like very few others.
