I'll say what I said before and...I didn't go to UT or want to draft VY...all of these "risings up" and "big yardage games" only started during the streak. Take it for what you will. Confidence builds winning and winning builds expectations from all. It is the trickle down theory. If I listened to some of you guys there would be no special QBs because they always seemed to have good players and defenses around them...well yeah, most do at some point.
To be specific, the Titans finished the season with the worst total defense in the NFL. Travis Henry had a 3.8 YPC career average before last season. He averaged 2.65 YPC before Vince entered the starting line-up, and 4.52 YPC after(coincidence?). Check the college stats for that one. VY made his mark on a TERRIBLE team, expected to finish dead last in the AFC, and took them to within one game of the playoffs in his rookie season. According to the experts he wasn't even supposed to contribute to an NFL team at least 2 or 3 years down the line. Kerry Collins lead a team to the Super Bowl, he started the season 0-3, and if he stayed at the helm do the Titans even come close to where they finished in '06? Please. VY had EVERYTHING to do with that turnaround.

And to answer Overalls, NO. Chandelier had a way better arm.

He had something to do with it no doubt, but it's not as much as you think. You sound like all these saints fans saying "since RB got here we've been winning, he's had a tremendous effect on our team.." when in fact it's mainly b/c they got a legitimate starting QB & a pro bowl RB back in the fold.

You guys had alot of luck last year (2nd jags game, giants game to name a few) & you've done really nothing to help out your main playmaker. To top that off, your schedule is one of the toughest in the league. If i were you i wouldn't bank on VY having that same effect leading you guys to the playoffs next year.

Not to mention Adam Jones' contributions and there was that business of a 60 yard field goal...

QB needs to have some fire in his blood. I don't know how Vince would have worked out as a Texan, but I wish he played for anyone but the Titans.

Shoooot, you underestimate The Greatness. He can take a cow and a field of wheat and turn it into a grilled cheese sandwish with just the left side of his brain. The right side will be too busy curing cancer and solving the conflicts in the Middle East.....and all that is just between plays.

You shouldn't show that pic of Vince crying. It will hurt his rep and the next backup DB that he slaps like a girl might actually hit back.

Maybe you get that response because it is true? Dropped balls, poorly run routes, and not having a sense of the field also hurts the QB throwing to the receiver.

And McClown is crap. To put him in the same sentence as Vince Young drops your credibility. Plus again you got back to a rookie year to scrape the barrel on your stats and a second year guy. Most people will tell you that a WR really does not step into form until his third season. I mean Boldin only played in 10 games that season???
You mean the super bowl team that had the majority of there players that were drafted and played as Houston Oilers? Is that the team you speak of?

I forgot Kurt Warner did beat that team. Played like crap since, but he did beat that team.

I am not sure where you are getting the referencing thing from. I wasn't referencing anyone.

Oh and lets see, Josh McCown, big arm, athletic, as smart as a box of rocks and cant throw the ball to open receivers, sounds like VY to me.

Its like you are speaking in code. I am not following the logic of your responses.

Two-tone and I were not talking about the Texans but disputing who lays claim to Chris Chandler. Which belongs to the Oilers, which belongs to the Titans.

Follow the conversation if you are going to respond please.

Man I missed out on some fun...

I won't post pictures of Texans after their losses, just wouldn't be fair, on top of the fact this has nothing to do with the VY fight

Oh heck why not join in the fun, this is the Indy game I believe. Isn't is great to have the ability to make up cleaver names and catchy phrases in order to hide the pain of the entire season?

Edit: seems board doesn't like the image or link (maybe too long or something puts asterisk)

Thank you but I think it's due to the naming of the file. Doesn't like Bush and Texas together...Strange though.

Seriosuly did you actually watch football during the time Warner played? I am not even sure I should point out hte obvious that he played in a super bowl two years later or the fact he went to the playoffs in '01. Three time pro-bowler. Oh yeah I forgot winning, playoffs, and Super Bowl do not concern the Texans organization.

You realize Vince Young looks like this right?



no like this guy ... who would more compare to McClown
