Default Could Vince Young ever achieve success here?

I often wonder if this could be the only place where Cinderella lost her shoes
https://www.yahoo.com/sports/blogs/n...221125953.html
Quote:
"It was very close Ö The Texans had the No. 1 pick and that was a place I wanted to play in. I wish they would have told me they wasnít picking me because I would have stayed my senior year," Young said with a bit of a chuckle. "But it didnít happen like that Ö being a kid, watching the Oilers all my life and having the opportunity to play for [the former Oilers], it was a dream come true as well."

Alex Loeb then asked Young if he would redo his decision if he had the same opportunity, with the same circumstances.

"Yeah, the same scenario," Young said. "If the Texans was the No. 1 pick again, I probably would have took the chance of trying to make that team as well, but the good point about it is that you can always come back and finish. I was happy I kept coming back to school and finish to graduate."

It's the OP that really asks the question. The article is merely a waist of space.

Hey, I get it. I knew VY was a fraud during his 3rd year in the league. But what if he'd stayed home. Being close to friends and family can screen out alot of bad influences. We hear the word heart a lot in sports. Playing with heart. The saying "Home is where the heart is. "
All that stuff our sport hero's are saying is just a bunch of hot air? And please don't tell me Santa's not real.

it would've been the opposite, and wasnt his family a large part of the bad influences? he'd be around every enabler and fan, as well as a whole lot more people trying to take advantage of his epic stupidity. the only chance he would've had was to begin his career in siberia. he almost made it to a remote habitat in tennessee, but then again you cant fix stupid.

I can't tell if you're being serious or not. If you're being serious then I can't believe that you think being in houston would have been a different story. The man is simply not a good pro QB. He had one good season and that was it. There is no shame in only being a truly great college QB. But please stop with the 'if only's'. Accept the fact that he is not cut out to be a pro and he is not smart enough to manage a windfall of money. Everything that happened to him was his own doing. Good and bad. Drafting the hometown hero is great if he turns out to be a player but not if he's a bust. Sometimes you get a story like CLE drafting lebron and sometimes you get a story like CHI drafting Eddie Curry.

Default Re: Could Vince Young ever achieve success here?

I am not an English expert myself however I think I typically get "was" and "were" correct just from the way it sounds.

For example "I knew they wasn't drafting me" just doesn't sound right. Do I technically know the rule for that? Admittedly no. In my world "I knew they weren't going to draft me" would sound more accurate.

My question is, didn't Vince have the same access that we had to TV, radio, TexansTalk.com, etc??

Charlie C was slobbering all over Reggie Bush and kept saying things like "We have our QB". McNair was still in love with Mittens and had just hired Kubiak to fix him.

NO ONE (outside of Vince apparently) expected the Texans to go QB with that pick.
