Ummmm, ok? Alex Smith was in his first year in our system this year just like VY with a different supporting cast than his rookie year, and he is younger that Vince. So I am not sure who is ahead of who.

Why? Michael Vick is currently a better passer and runner.

I am not saying Vince Young is the next Michael Vick, because I really do not know how much he improves his passing. When I made the comparison I was talking about now.

We could have had both ROYs if Carr remembered Daniels in the second half of the season.

I wasn't saying Alex Smith is better, just that making the point that he was playing in a system that was new to him also.

Time should tell what QB's come out on top of the 2005 and 2006 NFL Draft Classes. But right now it is too soon.

Nope. Daniels was a great red zone threat, but then Carr regressed and stopped throwing to the TE. We would have easily beaten the Titans if Carr hadn't regressed so much.

blah bs award... should have been colston, or even hester. I am so tired of this "VY is the reason they win, he just knows how to win" yeah... that time his defense scored all those touchdowns...and all those interceptions he threw...and those fumbles he had... all winning moves... yes he did torch us in overtime, and I do think he will be a good player in this league for years to come, but I think there were more deserving players. As a pure quarterback after watching leinart I think Leinart had a better season than young... but young has "it"...this "it" crap. Hey everyone let me tell you, I dominate in pickup basketball, I never lose... Texans should sign me, I have "it". Give me a break...

Remember the Titans in 2007


07:24 PM CST on Tuesday, January 2, 2007


If you like statistics, you aren't going to like the Tennessee Titans.

They finished dead last in the NFL in defense this season, allowing an AFC-high 400 points. They also finished 27th in offense with a rookie quarterback who wound up as the 30th most efficient passer in the NFL.

But I'm more excited about the future of the Titans right now than any other team in the NFL.

Start with the fact a young, franchise quarterback is in place. His numbers aren't pretty – Vince Young threw more interceptions (13) than touchdowns this season (12) and had a couple of real flat tires, passing for fewer than 100 yards in three of his 13 starts.

But Young did what he does best – what he did so well at Texas. He wins. Young engineered four fourth-quarter victories and another in overtime on the way to an 8-5 record as a starter. He beat playoff teams Philadelphia, the Giants and Indianapolis on successive weekends during one late-season stretch.

In my draft preparations last spring, I thought Young would take at least year to figure out the NFL game. I was wrong. His intangibles were strong enough to overcome any technical deficiencies he encountered at the quarterback position.

Most NFL quarterbacks must learn how to play the position before they can win games. Young proved he could win while learning. He's going to be special.

Having the quarterback in place is 75 percent of playoff contention. The other 25 percent is just as bright for Tennessee.

The Titans entered 2006 in a rebuilding mode. They fielded the youngest roster in the AFC and the fifth-youngest starting lineup in the NFL on opening day. The Titans finished the season starting recent 10 draft picks (from 2004 on) and finished 8-8.


AP
Vince Young was 8-5 as a starter in his rookie season. Whatever the Titans need this off-season to take the next step as a playoff contender, they are in a position to get. The NFL roster size is 53 players. The Titans already have 60 players under contract for 2007 – and they are still $41 million under the projected salary cap of $106 million.

Not only that, the Titans have 10 draft picks this April – an extra fourth-, sixth- and seventh-rounder. And this is a team that likes to develop its own players. Fifteen of Tennessee's starters in the finale against New England were homegrown.

That's why I love the Titans in 2007 and beyond. If the AFC South champion Indianapolis Colts look over their shoulder, they will see the Titans bearing down on them in a full sprint. That gap will continue to close this off-season.

Marshall Faulk agrees with you. He said Vince is a very good player but "all his highlights are of him running."

The panel (Shefter, Woodson, and Faulk) unanimously agreed that DeMeco was the right guy for DROY.

well heck with your philosophy colston or Bush should have gotten it.. heck those two got N.O. a bye in the playoffs after picking 2nd in the league...

MJD had more combined yards than anyone else in the history of the league except 2 people from what I read and I will have to look up those two because I can't remember off of the top of my head..

Anyway very good rookie class this year, it is good for the NFL

I'm happy for Vince. I know it means a lot to him after all of those nasty things were said about him prior to (and after) the draft. All he does is prove the doubters wrong - time and time again.
