I can guarantee that the players on that team gained more respect for VY after that...

Guys fight every camp....nothing new or shocking there...I know everyone remembers the Spencer/Babin deal....
I agree. I won't throw out leadership or anything but it is always good to see a guy stick up for his own guys, especially when they don't have much at that position.

I'm still confused for the VY hatred. Good guy. Wins games. Works hard to shut people up. I know the VY rhetoric got obscene here last off season and season but it isn't his fault people are psycho. I have mad respect for the guy.

"people are psycho"?

This is a Houston Texans website. If Peyton, Rivers, Romo,or McNabb had done something like that, we would still be ridiculing them.

As much as folks are heaping the man-love on vy for showing "leadership", you need to also tip your hat to the defensive guy who hit the hell out of a receiver when a crappy pass on a little out pattern left him completely vulnerable.

Would Jesus play for a team named for pagan beings? He's probably insist they change their name to the Tennesee Cherubs or Seraphim or something.

Anyways, on topic, I could care less if they fight. Some call it leadership, some call it stupidity. Either way, we will beat the tar out of these Tacks.

Thanks, man. I didn't even realize the count. Glad I used it wisely!

I completely disagree with it being "the right thing to do" or "good leadership". Good leaders set examples but they don't take swings. You never heard of Joe Montana or Peyton Manning hitting guys. They'll call a guy out or get in his face but when you take a swing at a guy, it comes off as immature more than good leadership. I can't imagine that the veterans on the team were thinking, "wow, he really has control of the team."

And if you are going to swing, make it a real swing. Not some girly slap.

What the veterans were thinking: Wow, this young guy is not tolerating any B.S....I likes...

Yeah, but what happens when two other dudes start going at it and Vince tries to break it up. Now it's a "do as I say not as I do" type of thing. It also takes away the ability for coaches to discipline other guys because "Vince can do it".

Should he have stepped up and called the guy out? Yes.
Should he have taken a shot at him? Absolutely not.

But it's the Titans, so what do I care.

I wish we got that kind of fearless passion out of our old QB's here....I don't think I ever saw Carr take up for any of his WR's who took a cheap or questionable shot in practice here. I still can't believe we passed on Young....still boggles my mind. Too bad he is a Titan.

I wish some of you would get a grip on reality...

I've never heard of or been on a football team where the coaches get mad at players for fighting during camp...In fact I've even been on teams where the coach will let you duke it out for a while before they break it up...

It's almost a given that during summer camp fights are going to happen...

It's football...AKA it's a violent sport...

Fighting at practice is actually a good thing sometimes...especially when in the end as a player and a man you are able to recognize that your temper got the best of you and you have no real animosity towards your teammate...
