    Vince Young is officially retired. Well, sort of officially. Unless he isn't.

    "I'm retired," Young told NFL.com. "Unless we get a great opportunity, something guaranteed ... I've already started moving forward. ... It's definitely official, I think, in my book."

    His NFL career was a flop, but he still was possibly the greatest college football player and one of the best big game/clutch QBs I watched play. I'll never forget the 2006 rose bowl, which is still today the best individual performance I have seen on a football field and the greatest football game I ever watched.

    Just goes to show you that the NFL and College football are two completely different games. Some players don't translate while others thrive and improve well past their production in college.. hence crap shoot.

    Considering I too will never be offered a job in the NFL I would also like to officially announce my retirement from the NFL.

    I am also retiring as a brain surgeon, airline pilot, rocket scientist, etc.

    He almost single handedly brought Ut back to being relevant and is an all time great for the school. I have to believe that (unless he puts himself in a bad situation) he will always be able to make a decent living if he stays affiliated with the school.

    Not as stupid as the few morons that still maintain the Texans should have drafted him.

    I've asked 'VY has to be better that at least half of the back-up QB's on other teams, right?


    WRONG - looks like he is not.

    I don't think it will be hard for him to find a job w/ the athletic department. He could come in handy in recruiting, be an assistant coach or something on the team..

    So just exactly what COULD have been? Maybe he could have gotten Kubiak fired earlier like he did Fisher? That is one positive thing he could have brought.

    Maybe I could have scored some professional football pads instead of a Tennessee fan getting them during his temper tantrums?

    Maybe I could've walked into a gay bar and and seen a sweaty shirtless half illiterate QB girating to funky cold medina surrounded by a bunch of sweaty shirtless half illiterate dopes.

    People can say what they want,but he's better than any qb on the texans roster. Think about the holes he dug fisher out of. I would be pissed to because he saved fisher job 2 times. Case came in to a more talented team and couldn't win a single game and has a job.
