Default He'll never be able to run like that in the NFL.

Here's the deal. There are a LOT of people on this board who called this last spring. A LOT of people. At that time we said do NOT resign Carr. Draft VY. Anyone could see he was going to be a monster. But the Texans said "We have The Fabulous David Carr!" Well, this is the pudding. In the pudding is the proof. Let's have mighty love now for all those who last year said dump Carr and draft Young. Let's have props upon props. Let's have the rest of you eating big helpings of crow. More crow. Get some scarecrow, too. And when you're done eating crow, have some more crow. And then, try behaving a little better toward those of us who are not blind and who saw this coming a long time ago.

I wonder what Merril Hoge's excuse will be this week.

Yeah, Bud Adams couldn't have scripted that humiliation better himself. Most of my worst fears about choosing David over Vince have come true this season.

If the Titans win the Super Bowl with Vince in the coming years, then all of my worst fears will have been realized.

Today was not a good day.

I am also interested to see what Hoge has to say about this.

If I remember correctly he said before the draft that VY should only be in this league as a WR but also said he was too slow to run effectively as a QB.

Nighthawk, I'll admit that I was one of those that didn't think Young's game would translate to the NFL. I'm not a native Texan and while I did root for the Longhorns in the Championship game and I will root for them since I live here now I won't say I'm a diehard and I never really watched that many games. After watching today's game I can now say that whatever IT is, VY has it. He's a winner and he makes things happen. I was definitely wrong about what he can do.

Well I got my spoon out for ya big guy. But....I'd like to see the goods from your anoited one first. I see what I see. You wanna take your baby food from Kenny Hand John O'Riely , be my guest. Here's the deal, this player will not...ever...improve his passing game. Period. He is now at the pinicle of everything he is ever going to be. The league caught Vick...they'll catch the anointed one also. Just a matter of time. He is not a quarterback. Chow can't make him one. He's never going to be a quarterback. He is a very tallented athlete lined up as a quarterback. Chow won't be able to fix him. He is a very tallented....bust. And you ain't never, ever going to the big dance with the anoited one at QB. Just won't happen.
And we're not shacking in our boots. We're relishing the next five years with VY as your QB. Gonna be fun. If you think this guy is a QB you are the one sir who is blind. You're blinded by man love. I'll wait on my crow for a seanon or two if you don't mind. Say it with me so you can get use to it...

Vince Young's passing numbers would be much better if he had more competant receivers (coughAJcough). I think that the first play VY had in the NFL was a long bomb to Bennett, who promptly dropped the pass. It's been like that all year. If the Titans can pick up a more talented wide receiver, VY's passing game WILL improve.

And not watching him play is the only reasonable excuse for not thinking VY is among the very elite players of all time. But if you have watched him play for a while and you still can't see how special he is, then there is no hope for your ability to judge talent....

Elite player of all time after less than a full season. Oh ok, and I am sure after Vick's first season you thought the same thing or maybe you thought Reggie White was a bust after half of a season. Is it possible to let someone play for at least 3 years before you say they are God (Bush pre Draft) or a couple years to call them a bust.

I am sure your job as scouting director at william and mary's school of typing is producing all kinds of championships for them!!
