Default The Bush vs. VY debate results at our place.................

I told Grid I would post a poll over at a site with very serious fans that would pit Bush vs VY much like the Texans face now...................Grid felt the majority would be just like the Texan fans here and go for VY....................well it is about 54 hours since i posted it and the results are pretty clear.............Titan fans want Bush 44 to 14 over VY.

interesting Bongo ... does that mean that yall would take Dbrick over Young you think?

Not really surprising. Everywhere except for Houston would take Bush hands down over Young. There was a poll on Cold Pizza last week which was about 70% for Bush 30% for Young. There was a poll on Foxsports.com which was 63% for Bush 37% for Young. We just happen to be in the center of the storm and are enclosed in a bubble of Vince love.

Dude, do another poll of Young vs. Leinart. I'd find the results of that one interesting, as well.

I'm not surprised that other football fans around the country pick Bush. Nothing wrong with rooting for Young, as he's definitely an amazing talent, but the hometown connection has really blinded many folks with the bright lights.

could it also be because of the media perception of Young, and since they have only seen 1-2 UT games they go off of what they are told?

they think hes a bad passer that can't read defenses and has a horrible delivery. We've seen that all this isnt true.

Yet we're blinded and theyre educated?

That's not true. If anything, people who haven't watched Texas games would see that game and think that he is unstoppable.

I can tell you everyone on our board love D'Brick but we never thought we'd have a shot at VY, Leinart or Bush............and any of those three likely will trump D'Brick..................We think you guys need D'Brick more than any other player out there....................As for VY vs Leinart..............it would be VY hands down..............and I am a Leinart guy in that vote myself....................I will try another one and let you know how it goes.....................

Steve most of our posters have seen VY play at least 4 games...........................infact several of the posters still live inTX and are UT fans......................I have seen 10 of his games this yr and saw 6 of last yrs games.................I am not sold on him at all.............................I think he is a talent but he has stretches where he struggles when the D makes him read first and takes his lanes away..............the AM game was a bad display while the USC game was by far his best.

yes the A&M game was bad. and thats what everyone always falls on. they say "hes done bad against some d's like A&M", but then when you ask them what other D's these were, they have no response.

Ive seen someone try to bash him because of the Rice Game. He played for 1 half and just handed the ball off to get the Freshman running backs some PT, and people bash him as getting shut down.

I think the truth is somewhere in between.................and I think several teams will have other QB ranked higher than VY or Leinart..........................................m any scouts are talking out loud about this very fact...................4 months away alot can change.

I hardly see "public opinion" as the per se, gospel. Pro or con. It's just opinion that's all. I'm sure the same people who weren't "blinded" also thought UT would be blown away by the greatest team of all time.

Last I looked the Chronicle poll was

70% Vince Young
20% Bush
10% trade down.

And please don't hand us that "serious football fans" c**p. The msg board people here and on the Titans sites are just average fans, like the rest of us.

Every poll is going to get different results. A message board poll cannot get enough voters most of the time. There is a +/-3% of error on a 1000 person poll...unless you can get 1000 people where you reach a number of different type of people, the poll means nothing...

I don't know, since the Rose Bowl I think we've been seeing a particularly large flood of below average fans. Well thought out takes are an endangered species in here since all of these so-called average fans watched the Rose Bowl and suddenly decided that the thing to do was join the Texans message board (now, four years after it first appeared) because they love the team (Vince Young) so much that they must have their opinion heard, and heard, and heard, and heard.....

There is a difference between "football fans" and "serious football fans". The only reason you say it's "c**p" is that the mob happens to be screaming for what you want at the moment.

OK, you're right. I forgot. These msg boards are the apotheosis of right football reason. Somehow that had slipped my mind. "Serious" football fans are the "real" football fans, like, uh . . . like you! Amazing how that works, isn't it?

Are these the same Tennessee people that also wanted Bud Adams?

BTW, the TexansTalk.com Poll right now

Bush has 94 votes
Young has 278
D'Brick has 8
AJ Hawk has 3
Leinart has 0
Trade Down has 21
