Default VY:Pro day--Jerry Rhome to work with Vince

As reported by the Chronic. (Sorry if this is posted elsewhere)

Interesting: Veteran QB coach Rhome hired to work with Young

Longtime NFL offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Jerry Rhome has been hired to work with University of Texas quarterback Vince Young.

Rhome, who played and coached for the Oilers during a 33-year career as an NFL player and assistant coach, is coming to Houston to help prepare Young for the NFL scouting combine (Feb. 22-28) and Texas' pro day (March 22) in which scouts and coaches from every team will be in Austin to watch the Longhorns' draft-eligible players work out.

...

"We checked with a lot of (NFL) people, and Jerry comes highly recommended," said agent Major Adams, who represents Young. "He's the best, and Vince is excited about working with him."

....

Rhome was McNair's first offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach with the Oilers in 1995-96. Like Young, McNair played in the shotgun in college. As he did with McNair, Rhome will help Young make the transition under center.

"This is a great opportunity," Rhome said Tuesday from his home in Atlanta. "I think Vince is the No. 1 player in the country, and I'm excited to work with him. I think it's going to be a lot of fun."

Pretty interesting,, I may be wrong, but signs are saying if VY is available... Titans are taking him..(works out with McNair, has McNairs Old coach) etc etc Honestly I'd be thrilled for Vince.. study under McNair and learn.. I would like him to be a Texan, but if he (VY) pans out like or even better than NcNair the NFL is in for a treat!

Jinx. I prefer to think of it as GMTA.

I can't say that I would read too much into this. It is probably just a reflection of McNair liking Rhome and suggesting they work together.

Pre-draft, I know a lot of these guys work on their combine skills with folks, but a QB coach hire typical?

As an aside, I still think VY woulda been better off with more experienced representation. Someone more experienced at selling draft picks.

That's probably the smartest thing Vincent's agent has so far this offseason. I don't like the direction his agent is leading him in.

Rhome.." This is how you stand under center"

VY..."I aint puttin' my hands under no fat linemans butt. Teach me to run pass routes."

I'm sure Vince knows how to run plays from under center he did it for 3 years and madison and he did it part time at Texas. They ran a lot of I-Formation at Texas when Benson was there and he threw out of that formation quite a bit. They didn't go majority to the spread/zone read until this season. Besides a lot of those plays were from the Colts because the Texas staff spent the summer and spring with the Colts coaching staff picking their brain. Doing a 5-step drop is like riding a bike you won't forget. Besides every prospect is work with a QB coach this offseason. Leinart's QB is coach has help Carson Palmer and others and his tutoring Jimmy Clausen, possibly the highest ranked recruit in the 2007 class.

The VY camp announces he won't throw at the combine

The VY camp then announces he's hired one of the best QB coaches to help him prep for the pro day.

Seems VY is trying to avoid the inevitable...he's an NFL WR

TEAM STARRY NIGHT STARTS THE SPIN CYCLE



As Texas quarterback Vince Young draws increased criticism for his "maybe I will . . . maybe I won't" approach to throwing at the scouting combine, his handlers are now trying to paint the picture that Vince isn't the kind of guy to walk away from a challenge.



And we can see right through it.



The latest addition to Team Starry Night, longtime NFL assistant coach Jerry Rhome, heaps praise on Young for his recent decision to throw the ball in (drum roll, please) windy conditions.



"I asked Vince if he wanted to throw with the wind," Rhome said, "but he said he wanted to throw against the wind, because he wanted to make it as tough as possible.



"This was a bad time to work out, but he accepted the challenge and toughed it out. That impressed me."



Wow. We're blown away. Really.



And we'd be even more impressed if he "accepted the challenge" to work out under far better conditions in the RCA Dome with folks who might or might not write his name on an index card on April 29 watching every move he makes.



That's really the issue. Young chooses not to lay it on the line against Jay Cutler. In our book, that gives Cutler an automatic edge over Young.

Kiper was on 790 the other morning..February 16th ..and said VY is actually smart for not throwing. He said it is the most overblown and ridiculous argument ever against a guy and that the news must be slow. He said half the guys come in and get weighed and take the tests. VY knows his throwing motion is different and he will see 20 other guys who have a normal motion. that will not change. He is going to have his own interview and workout at Texas. Guys do it yearly. All of this is from Kiper. Non issue. I agree. He gets to workout on his home turf. Guys do this yeazrly and people don't give a crap compared to the stuff we are hearing now.

I agree Chuck. I don't any of it means the guy is great or not. As I have said before he is a good kid and has been a stud, if he does work this hard then good luck to him wherever he goes.

A bit of a different perspective from Chip Brown on Vince's management team and some of their early decisions:

More From Profootballtalk.com

LEAGUE INSIDERS SEE THROUGH RHOME COMMENTS

On Sunday, The Houston Chronicle ran a story containing glowing quotes from NFL assistant coach Jerry Rhome regarding Vince Young's decision to throw against the wind in a recent workout.

"This was a bad time to work out," Rhome said, "but he accepted the challenge and toughed it out. That impressed me."

The reality, of course, is that Rhome was the latest guy added to the "Keep Vince from Pulling an Aaron Rodgers" effort. So Rhome is going to pimp his guy . . . or the guys who are paying Rhome might decide to stop doing so.

Indeed, one league insider dismissed Rhome's comments as "an infomerical."

And Rhome is smart enough to know that he needs to paint Young in the best possible light. If Rhome doesn't, his chances of getting paid good money to "help" future prospective draft picks will be a few degrees south of zero.

IMHO all of Youngs self-promoting could possibly backfire on him.
