VY has a 0:4 TD:INT ratio over his past 2 games. I sure wouldn't mind facing that.

I am more concerned about our offense against a great Titans defense more than anything else. Not like VY has been lighting up the league with his great performances this season. We need a win, I don't give two craps if it is against VY or Kerry.

I see your point but I want this win vs VY and like other posters have said I feel I have paid top dollar for PSL's, Texans gear and tickets for six years and I want to be entertained.

I think all this Vince hate is misplaced. Vince Young is just a talented local guy who wanted to be here. Bud is athe guy who didn't. Hate him.

We would've beat the Jags if we could have finished our drives with a TD in the redzone. If we do that this week, we win.

According to KFFL, VY is reluctant to speak about his injury, or whether or not he will play this coming week. Methinks that this is good news for the Texans, either way.

Well considering the way that we play against back up quarterbacks, it might not be bad if Vince plays.

Default Re: VY Status?

VY had an MRI today and is considered day to day.

He started limping as he ran out of bounds, right before he was pushed out.

Fischer claims that the injury was not as bad as they first thought but waits to get the MRI back. He also said in his press conference that it wasn't the sort of injury that needed surgery. I am guessing VY will play if he can because Superman wears Vince Young pajamas and there is no way VY wants to miss the game in Houston if he can play.

Here is a description of the injury:

Quote:
Quadriceps, the four major muscles in the front of the thigh, are responsible for extending the knee joint. Young said when he tried to bend his knee he felt a sharp pain.

"I just wanted to be cautious,'' Young said. "I wanted to go back in but if the (trainers) say just go on and sit it out, that is what I am going to do. I am going to be real cautious about the situation. I really didn't want to go back out there and try to do anything to make it even worse.''
Here's some interesting information on quadicep strains.

Quote:
Usually, the muscle is forcibly stretched beyond its limits and the muscle tissue becomes torn during an activity such as sprinting or kicking a ball. A tear in a Thigh muscle is referred to as a Thigh strain and depending on its severity it is classified as a first, second or third degree strain:

a first degree strain is damage to a few muscle fibres
a second degree strain is damage to a more extensive number of muscle fibres
a third degree strain is a complete rupture of the muscle itself

Thigh Muscle Strain Signs & Symptoms

With a grade one Thigh strain the signs may not be present until after the activity is over. There may be a sensation of cramp or Thigh tightness and a slight feeling of pain when the muscles are stretched or contracted.

With a grade two Thigh strain there is immediate pain which is more severe than the pain of a grade one injury and produces pain on walking. It is confirmed by pain on stretch and contraction of the muscle. A grade two Thigh strain is usually sore to touch.

A grade three Thigh strain is a complete rupture of a muscle and is a serious injury. There is immediate burning or stabbing pain and the athlete is unable to walk without pain. Often there is a depression in the thigh at the location of the tear and a lump above the depression. After a few days with grade two and three injuries a large bruise will appear below the injury site caused by bleeding within the tissues.

The immediate treatment for a Thigh muscle injury consists of rest, ice, and compression (never apply ice directly to the skin). This is aimed at reducing the bleeding and damage within the muscle tissue. Resting may be the common sense approach, but it is one that is often ignored by competitive athletes. This is unwise, since it does not take much to turn a grade one Thigh strain into a grade two, or a grade two Thigh strain into a grade three. As a general rule, grade one Thigh strains should be rested from sporting activity for about 3 weeks, and grade two Thigh strains for about 4 to 6 weeks. In the case of a complete rupture the Thigh muscle will have to be repaired surgically and the rehabilitation afterwards will take about 3 months.
Interesting.

I'm sure it's a mere coincidence that all his teams win on every level...and don't tend to win like they won when he left. Football is one sport that you can't just scan a stat line and figure out of a guy makes a difference....you actually have to watch them play to figure stuff like that out.

people seem to forget how bad the titans were before VY started....the first time I realized that VY had "it" was when he played at Madison and they beat North Shore in the Dome.....................North Shore had more talent but Madison had Vy.

I just want to beat the Titans, with or without VY. The W does not have an asterisk if he's not playing.

I'm concerned about our whole team playing the Titans. Our D is soft, and with Tennessee's running game, I'm not sure we can stop them. And with a great defense and our inability to score in the red zone, I do not see the potential to dominate in any area of the game.

Heck, there's 1/2 the guys on the gotitans.com board that are questioning the effectiveness of vy more than some here on texanstalk.com! And I'm pretty sure they watch as much if not more than people do on here.
