Default Too much pressure for VY??

I'm not sure if anyone else has seen this, but I find it quite interesting. It may just have been a slow news day, but still.

It would seem that he sort of has. Hasn't made any sort of speach or anything, but it is looking a lot like a duck.

I didn't catch the part about the party being a "special" sort of party. I found a photo and can only say that I'm understanding why he chose UT now.

Wowzer. I mean...uh, well....you see, it's...uh...wow. Um...okey-dokey.

Cue the old rugged street cop who says "There's nothing to see here...move along everybody. Keep moving. OK, let's go. Keep moving."

Now he's saying "I never thought about quitting."

Thank you, Mr. McNair, for not even wasting the time to seriously consider picking VY. I know a lot of VY fans wondered why we announced so early that VY was not on our radar, and I think we're seeing why. Seems he's got issues in a lot of areas, especially with trying to play the semantics game with his revisionist history to make himself look better.

VY and Bush are both in the espn.com headlines, and it ain't flattering news.

Anyone feel like VY could have a Ryan Leaf "leave me alone" meltdown any day now?

But hey, if a guy wants to prance around bare chested at a private sausage party and question his own dedication to pro football after just one year, then far be it from me to try to stop him from doing so.

Quote:
Young was installed as the Titans starter in Week 4 of his rookie season and led Tennessee to an 8-8 record. The Titans barely missed making the playoffs, but Young was named to the Pro Bowl.

On Thursday, he said NFL.com's report was "blown out of proportion." He said he has a clear head and is eager to begin his third NFL season.

"Oh, my God. Oh, my God. I ain't never said I was going to quit football," Young told The Tennessean. "There was a lot of stuff going on in my life, but football is not hard to me. Football is easy. All you have to do is be coachable and use your God-given talent. If it was a thought at all it was just a passing thought for a second.''

Last season, the Titans did make it to the playoffs, but Young threw all nine of the team's touchdown passes for the fewest of any team in the league. Nonetheless, he learned to live with the pressure of being an NFL quarterback.

He proved that to himself when he handled scrutiny that came his way when pictures of him drinking shirtless at a party showed up on the Internet.

"I have a stronger circle," Young said in his interview with NFL.com. "Now I can handle this kind of stuff without it making me want to give up football."
I hope he doesn't think it is easy at least in his development stage, or the bar wasn't set too high

I was going to quote that because so far the only thing he has made look easy is throwing INts.

Yes, Vince, it's quite easy for someone who has played football for the majority of their years to play as poorly as you have. Now, go out and throw more TDs than INTs and come back and tell everyone how easy football is.

The Tennessee Titans 2006 Rookie of the Year told NFL.com in an interview posted on Monday that he considered retirement after his first season.

"I really thought long and hard about it," Young told the Web site. "There was so much going on with my family. It was crazy being an NFL quarterback. It wasn't fun anymore. All of the fun was out of it. All of the excitement was gone. All I was doing was worrying about things.
VS.

Which is it, Mr. NFL?

Say what you mean and mean what you say. It's a fairly simple concept, and one that is required of leaders. Now he doesn't like the scrutiny of the media and being held accountable by fans, so he backtracks and denies the story.

Interesting that his teammate directly contradicts what he's now saying about never saying he thought about quitting:

Quote:
Keith Bulluck: "Whatever pressures were going on in his life at that time last summer, he was feeling big stress. He was talking about quitting football and though it might have been for the time, for the moment, it was real.
I have never faulted him for doubting his dedication to pro football after one season, but he doesn't have to lie to make friends.

To be honest, he'd give your team the best chance of winning without having to count on the running game and the defense every game.
