Default "Young wanted in Houston" ????

"Vince Young is wanted in Houston
Posted by Gregg Rosenthal on January 6, 2011, 4:26 PM EST
Well, we suppose it was inevitable. Someone has penned an article saying the Texans should sign Vince Young, the hometown kid.

Richard Justice of the Houston Chronicle did the honors, writing the Texans should pursue Young as a backup. (This assumes Young is released, as expected.) Justice then chastises the Texans for being “uninteresting” and wanting to paint the town “beige.” He wants buzz.

The argument almost makes sense in a world where Young would have to accept a clear backup role. He doesn’t.

Young has warts, but he’s not without value. He’s won consistently and his stats are impressive. He’s thrown 20 touchdowns to 10 interceptions over the last two years. He averaged 8 yards-per-attempt and had a 98 quarterback rating in 2010.

Young has major leadership and maturity questions to answer. Of course. That’s why he’s available and won’t get a monster contract.

Despite that, Young could upgrade the quarterback position on a lot of teams. He shouldn’t have to settle for a clear backup role. Let Matt Leinart do that."

If he is signed by the Texans, I will turn in my fan card.

A they say, this is tooooo delicious... in a soap opera kind of way.

Don't you all have a sinking feeling that this will actually happen?

It's too freaking perfect not to, just like the touchdown he scored to win the first game he played in Reliant.

It's almost like... destiny.

The only time I ever want to see Vince Young near a Texans uniform is when he is under a pile of Texans defensive players.

If the Texans sign VY, I will personally hunt down everyone responsible for it, lock them in a room with a shirtless VY and let the tequila flow.

Guys to be completely honest, if Schaub were to go down in a game I think VY would give us a better opportunity to win than either Dan-O or Leinart.

With that said, I'll completely understand if the the Texans don't want to sign a guy who recently told his Head Coach "I'm not walking out on them (teammates), I'm walking out on you."

If he matures, grows up, and separates from his yes-men posse then it could be a good thing. Otherwise, VY is just another physically talented dumbass.

Default Re: Should The Texans Sign VY If They Could?

I think I'll abstain from voting.

I'm a Longhorn fan, but I never thought VY would be a good QB. He has well publicized issues, and would instantly have the VY fanboys crying for him to start.

The only problem is that he is a much better backup than Dano or Lienart. If Schaub went down for any length of time, from a purely on-field perspective, I'd rather have him than the two "QBs" we have as backups now...

Depends on Young.

I see him as a scorched-earth talent. Sure he is exciting and will win you games, but look at the damage he does in the process. Having him on the field of play is nice, but you also have to deal with his Wonderlick-iness off the field.

Now if the light is on...

LOL I love all the slight to Kubiak & Co. these days. Honestly, the decision to pick VY up or not has little to do with us and more to do with VY. He's his own worst enemy and will be the reason why teams pass on him.
