Default Tarvaris Jackson traded to Bills ... VY cut

Quote:
Tarvaris Jackson is on his way to the Buffalo Bills, according to Ian Rapoport and Michael Lombardi of the NFL Network. Both reporters tweeted that the Bills and Seattle Seahawks have agreed to the trade, with terms not yet finalized.

It's likely bad news for Vince Young, who had been the backup to Bills starter Ryan Fitzpatrick through training camp and the preseason. Young has not looked good, going 25-of-52 for 276 yards in three appearances. He never found the endzone and was picked off twice.

He hadn't even clearly beaten out Tyler Thigpen for the number two job. Brad Smith, quarterback/wide receiver, is on the roster, too.

Jackson, meanwhile, had barely gotten on the field for Seattle in the preseason, as Matt Flynn and Russell Wilson have battled for the starting job. He's only thrown five passes, all of them coming in Seattle's 44-14 win over the Kansas City Chiefs on Friday. He completed three of them.

Jackson did have a reasonable 2011, though. In fourteen starts for the Seahawks, Jackson completed 60.2 percent of his passes for 3,091 yards, and he also had more touchdowns than interceptions ‒ 14 to 13. They're not superstar numbers, but they're the numbers of a pretty good number two quarterback.

Jackson is one of those bubble guys who fans are super happy to have as a number two, and super pissed to have as a number one. I think he finds a nice role at Buffalo.

As for VY - well, I can't see there being too many news reports about his playing career for too much longer.

This sure is a very circuitous route that VY is taking to the HoF.

Vince Young completed 12-of-26 passes for 103 yards and two interceptions in the Bills' third preseason game.
Young played the entire second half and proceeded to make an array of ill-advised throws, finishing with a passer rating of 25.0 and putting his status as the favorite to back up Ryan Fitzpatrick in jeopardy. Young has completed 25-of-52 passes (48.1 percent) for 276 yards (5.31 YPA), no touchdowns, and the two picks through three August games. With Tyler Thigpen also playing extremely poorly, the Bills may want to explore other options. Aug. 25 - 11:23 pm et

Guess that explains this move.

Where's the "Thank you, Houston Texans, for not drafting me..." commercial now????

What company threw that piece of **** commercial together with VY and RB where those two guys thank the Texans for passing on them both, in essence motivating them to become better players with teams who wanted them more than we did???

Bastards. That's cosmic justice if ever he concept existed. I don't feel sorry for him.

VY had his 15 minutes and should be set for life but isn't . He and Tebow were great college players who's game doesn't translate into the pros . Why ... they can't throw and VY isn't the sharpest knife in the drawer . Now ride into the sunset Vince , back to Austin , where they can find a job for you on the Longhorn Network .

I thought this post from a Bills MB was funny:

Quote:
I liked Young and was hoping he would succeed here. His obnoxious group of supporters that flooded the boards made having him on the team unbearable. Sucks he failed (again) but it should make the boards a little bit better.
