Default What I like about Vince Young.

Now I realize that Young didn't have his greatest game today, but the thing about Vince is that he ALWAYS gives you a chance to win....he doesn't make silly mistakes, he's calm in the pocket, and he can make the big play from time to time.....Carr might have the better numbers than Vince on the season, but numbers don't mean everything........with a little more seasoning I see Vince being a great starter for years to come.

Shouldn't this be in the NFL section?

Vince has shown flashes but it remains to be seen if he will put it all together. He is 7/15 and if I was a Titan fan I would be uneasy about that but maybe he puts it together after some time under his belt under the tutiledge of Chow and Fisher.

2-2 in 4 starts. No mistakes. Pretty solid for a rookie. And he ran a long TD right against Mario. After that run Mario became very tenative just like Freeney and Mathis did. I think our DL killed your OL. KVB had 4 sacks two called back but he was unblockable. And AJones killed you again as I predicted on ST. He also completely shut down AJ in the first half. And his INT was another big play. We are not good but we also have a ton of talent. This was done without Haynesworth too.

I put it in this forum, because in a sense I'm comparing stats (Carr) to onfield play (vince)

No offense, but this looks like a case of bandwagoning.

Default Re: What I like about Vince Young.

no offense, but the points we're making are the truth....I think it's safe for us to say that VY appears to be a smarter and calmer QB than Carr.

Default Re: What I like about Vince Young.

VY made plays and didn't make mistakes. He managed the game well, and the score would have likely been lopsided were it not for Mawae's bad snap and the blown call on Bennett. He was far from perfect, but he was very good when he needed to be... both his TDs were on 3rd downs right... just more of the same.... the pass to Bennett was a crucial play and a perfect throw. He's a playmaker and he seems to be a competent NFL QB. Not bad for a rookie.

Stats mean nothing... points, wins, and big plays mean a lot more.

Default Re: What I like about Vince Young.

VY didn't win the game. Carr's mistakes won the game.

Carr had an undeniably terrible performance, but VY did not impress me aside from the regurgitation of his 2-play UT playbook.

It seems like you all are giving Vince praises simply because Carr played badly. I think it was possible to give him his praises without bringing Carr into the equation, but using him to justify VY growing up as a QB seems like some sort of.... non-VY related agenda.

stats are for losers. Results are what winners look at. Vince young scrambles and scores a touchdown under pressure. DC throws an int into quadruple coverage. i'll take vince.

THAT'S the thing though....Carr makes mistakes, and Vince rarely does...and that is VITAL when we're talking about being a good QB.....Vince won't lose the game for you, but Carr can.

Default Re: What I like about Vince Young.

what I like about VY is he ran that punt back for a TD.
that fumble recovery for a TD before the half was inspiring to me

so versatile.. I love it..


seriously.. I like VY but was nothing special today.. lets say he was Dilferish.. in his way not of not hurting the Titans team

rarely does.. comeone.. Vince will be good. but he has made mistakes.. 5 games 4int's 4 fumbles.

Y'alls Godlike vision of VY amazes, me.. it really is making me not like the guy. Vince will be a good QB someday, and his leadership is uncanny, but other than that right now, he is learning on the job.
