    I tried searching the forums, surprisingly, I didn't find much, but I'm wondering how many of you guys would be interested in taking Vince Young on. I'd like to see him land in Houston quite honestly. He kind of has a nice Trojan horse quality about him.... but after all you've seen, does anyone here want VY for the Texans, even as a #2?

    seconded. If he could throw his equipment into the stands after a meltdown of not being recognized as the chosen one, that'd be nice as well.

    Been awhile, good to see you back.

    Might check any of the Austin sports web sites, their has to be a VY love fest going on somewhere around those parts.

    After his on the field conduct I personally would not want him anywhere near the Texans even if all he does is just whine, I mean win.

    exactly. I've debated too many times with Titan fans who would actually like to see him return in 2011 about the significance of that incident and the ensuing verbal confrontation. It's affirming to see that even in a town like Houston, VY is not in demand.

    Sincerely, I would like to hear from anyone who actually would like to take a flyer on VY. Apart from that, I'd also like to see the Eagles take VY. If Vick were to go down, which is likely, I'd love to see how VY responds to the "brotherly love" of Philadelphia. Vince thought Nashville fans were tough on him. Philadelphia fans are just plain hostile!

    Absolutely none. On a 1-10 scale, -10.

    Anti-Staubach. Promises a lot and delivers nothing.

    Wow. That's a strong feeling but can you honestly tell me your feelings about Vince Young when the Texans were on the clock with the number 1 pick overall? History is the best judge and CLEARLY Williams was the best player available, hindsight 20/20, but how did you feel about VY back in April 2006?

    No! I was his fan while @ UT and loved the game @ Rose Bowl but imo he is a prima donna with minimal skills that easily over come by his attitude.

    We have some folks who lobby for him ( not on here ) and all they care about is he's from here . You bring in VY and Matt can throw 4 tds and 550 yds but get sacked on a 3rd and 7 because he doesn't scramble well and they'll scream for VY .

    I think Vince needs a attitude adjustment. He needs to swallow his pride and be content with a backup role this year. He says he wants to start....I think he needs some good coaching and work on his position. Maybe he can compete for a starting job in the future....but no at this point.....

    I'll always love Vince the Longhorn.

    Vince the Pro....not so much. Dude's got entitlement issues that would only get worse if he were playing in Houston.

    Not to mention the drama that would come with him. If he were a backup, then there would be riots in the stands every time Schaub throws an interception.

    There are certain things that a QB can "rehabilitate." A pattern of running out on a team isn't one of them.

    I didn't think Young would make it as a QB in the NFL. But that was based on his passing and ability to see the field as a passer. I never foresaw the problems Young had with Fisher. And I thought the Wonderlic score was overblown.

    As many have said, this is the absolute wrong place for Young to resurrect his career. He needs to dump his entourage and enablers and go to a team with a good QB coach. If the Eagles trade Kolb, backing up Vick in Philly would make a lot of sense. Reid could definitely rehabilitate Young's career.
