Championship for the Titans.
Awesome for them. Sucks for us now that he's in place for the next two seasons.
I guess Vince will be AWOL/MIA again... "calling all cars"!
Collins signs for two years and VY has two years left on his contract. (5 year deal with option on 6th year)
Collins was enough for them when their defense was wrecking shop. I think they'll still have a strong D, but losing Haynesworth (and Schwartz) is going to tangibly effect them. It'll be interesting to see how Collins performs with the added pressure of having to score points to win if the rest of their D can't pick up the slack....
wow...I don't want to bring up the "B word", but at some point it has to be considered. Third overall pick sitting on the bench after losing the starting job to an old dude, along with his other issues, makes you wonder.
This just shows that his leadership is so strong that he can singlehandedly lead his team to the playoffs even from the bench.
Hate to say it, but he should already be considered a bust.
He still could ressurect his career, but at this point he is what he is, and that is a 3rd overall pick who failed and doesn't look to be getting another chance anythime soon.
at this point, can he even hold onto the 3rd spot? Simms may make a good showing in TC and vince could go on a drive with his gun again.
The only way I could see that happening is if we released Young and I am pretty sure Young has a no release clause in his contract.
Meaning the entire contract is guaranteed?
You're either being sarcastic, or you're full of it!
It may have a no release clause until 'year x' (i.e. after the third season he can be released).
Anyway. Vince is not going to be feeling super smiley about this at all.
Considering the Titans have just signed Collins until the end of Vince's contract:
"Young wants trade" speculation in...3, 2, 1. I'm sure there'd still be teams willing to stick up his contract demands.
I hope I am wrong ... though I have heard it from a couple people.
I don't think he has a clause like that in his contract, at least not one that is still valid. The big reason is his cap hit would be huge.
This. Youngs cap hit this upcoming season is pretty easy to swallow (4 or 5 million I think?). I think next year is when it'll be time to either cut bait or stick with it because he's shown something you like.
I would luuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuuvvvv to see VY get cut. All the jackass jocksniffers in Austin would be so pissed at Fisher they'd have no choice but to jump off the bandwagon.
Wherever McCoy goes will be the next Austin bandwagon football team.
I don't know if we can call Vince Young a bust just yet. He's had some unfortunate circumstances, and a really strange beginning to his career.
If he were to be let go, I'm sure there would be several teams that would at least bring him in, to see if he wants to play football.
If he does in fact want to play, I'm sure he'll have a fine career.
What? What kind of unfavorable circumstance is "having a defense that will propel you to the playoffs no matter how poorly you play"? Joe Flacco looked all world compared to Young with roughly the same archetype of team (Run ball, play defense, win games).
With how superbly he's obviously taken to coaching, I'm sure he'll be a great football player. . . in about 10 years, maybe.
