Default VY the pouter

Anyone hear Andrea Kramer's sideline report last night?

Apparently Norm Chow told her that Young has immaturity issues and tends to pout if the game does not go the way he likes. I'm not sure if this is a ploy by the Titans to get Young to turn his act around or if this is Chow's way of acting out against the organization for not taking the QB he wanted but it is pretty significant either way.

Yes I also heard that same report.

She wasn't reporting on him pouting - she was reporting on his OC talking his pouting when things aren't dandelions and buttercups (which they weren't for him last night).

We're just trying to get Vince's head right. He's been a heck of a lot of fun since we drafted him and I've enjoyed watching all the uproar in my hometown as a result of that pick (why else do you think we took him?) but he's kind of a crybaby at times.

I was reading a management self-help book last week before bed that said sometimes you need to shame employees in public to get their attention. I sure hope this works. I don't want to die without a Super Bowl ring.

Default Re: VY the pouter

I heard the same 'report' during the game, too. I thought it was amusing, but very inappropriate for the moment. They mentioned it when talking about VY's injury, and even Madden made the comment that being out with an injury had absolutely nothing to do with pouting or whatever.

The 'report' sounded like an agenda being served. I just doubt an OC like Chow would throw his boy under the bus, especially right before a playoff game.

Yes, I can easily understand why watching your #1 pick throw for twice as many interceptions as td's would be a lot of fun for your fans Bud.

Your sense of humor hasn't changed since we last saw you. By the way Bud...any closer to your death throes yet? As a city, we anxiously await news of your demise.

It'll never happen. Every year I have my GM scout a couple of healthy undrafted free agents. We sign them, bring them to camp, and let them practice for a week or two.

Then when I'm ready we cut them and when they come in to turn in their playbook I have them killed and bathe in their blood for 48 hours. If I do this every year for 30 years straight I'll become immortal and be allowed to serve my dark master on this earth FOREVER!

yeah, he threw his fair share of picks, but last time I checked they made the playoffs coming out of the best division in football. you can spin that all you want but bottom line is their season isn't over.

hate all you want, that is scoreboard. scoreboard trumps all. stats are for agents and fantasy football. its all about who wins and who loses and some people just dont get it. give props where props are due.

Dude...you need to check yourself. Done? Good...now we can continue.

Stats are a way of measuring players against one another in a similar environment and conditions, and also a way of measuring personal progress from season to season. In this, vy fails miserably.

Now you can spin it whichever way lets you sleep well at night, but throwing for twice as many picks as td's is just, well...downright Carr-ish. In fact, if I recall correctly, you were on DC's ass for the very same thing!

Yes, they made the playoffs, but if you cannot see the good team as being the main catalyst for the end result, then this debate is over.

The Titans would have made the playoffs with Dilfer at QB . They made it because they ran the ball and play good defense .

The highest point total for the Titans was when Collins was QB . That was against the Texans .
