I think coaches are starting to see how much Jeff Fisher had to prop this guy up and completely revamp the offense to make up for his lack of skill. As someone mentioned, even when you get down the depth chart, you need a back-up to jump in and run plays. No one has time for hand-holding.


Problem with Vince is that his fans have totally turned me off to any story of redemption. I have no ill will towards the guy on a personal level, but, his cult has made me really not care whether he gets another shot or not. Let THEM give him a job, since they love him so much.

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?
Being completely uncoachable can do that. From his meltdowns on the Titans, to the hilarious media faux pas while on the Eagles, it's not really that big of a mystery why coaches would rather march out Brady Quin, Ryan Lindley and Nick Foles.

And I would rather shoot myself than either of those guys, but if I had to choose I'd probably choose Carr, because while that guy won't win you a game (ever), he's not going to try and hot dog it and offer up a bunch of needless turnovers.

Plus Carr is a fairly benign dude with the media, whereas you know Young is going to give you a juicy quote to run with.

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.
How do you plan around a QB who immediately curls into a ball once the ball is snapped?

Direct snap to the RB, every single offensive play.

Well, OK sometimes you snap it to the FB when you want to mix things up a little. Every now and then if Carr is having a good day and feeling adventurous you snap it to him and have him throw it but only if he's feeling up to it. The rest of the time you tell David that it's ok if he curls up into a ball as long as he does it in front of the RB. That way maybe some defender might trip over him.

ALL THAT AND A BAG OF MAIL: VINCE YOUNG COED FLAG FOOTBALL EDITION

Quote:
It's come to this for Vince Young, he can't find an NFL job so he's now playing coed flag football at the University of Texas. Think about this career trajectory for a moment. From posting the best performance in the history of college football in the BCS title game -- his final play in a Longhorn uniform was a 4th down scramble for an undefeated title in a BCS championship game -- to playing coed flag football while going back to school to get your degree because no one will let you play quarterback for them anymore.

I am still convinced that cASSerely had little to do with that draft. He wanted Reggie Bush and was a lame duck GM at that point.

I've mentioned before, I've been told by two close to the situation that Casserly repeatedly taking the credit for Mario is total b.s. VY was an instant "No" from staff and Mr. McNair took Bush off the board when he received confirmation of the USC reports.

I honestly believe the Ravens will sign him to a long term contract and rue the day they did so. Only speculation on my part, and only time will tell.

Flacco has won more playoff games on the road than any other QB in history for the amount of time he has played. That's hardly what I would call a flash in the pan. Wish Schaub could be that good. LOL
