    Obvioulsy Kiper fails to realize that 1) Young is so good that he doesn't need no stinkin' talent around him, 2) he's a natural leader that elevates the talent around him, 3) the other 10 players on the field are only there because it's part of NFL rules and regulations.

    I was a bit shocked at some of the comments about Young during the draft. They were tip-toeing around the issue, but they did not paint him in a positive light with regards to his QB skills.

    I suspect that VY is not a happy camper. Of course there is the thing of "Why draft a WR if he can't hit one". Looks to me like the offense is going to be very controlled. Lots of running, screens, short dumps and dang little down field. Mmmm, that has some sort of familiar ring to it. I'm sure that worked out well for who ever used it.

    The Titans are giving up on Young, in a sense. They are starting to finally realize that Vince Young is closer to Edward Scissorhands than he is to any NFL great in regards to passing. They are likely going to lessen his role in the offense next year, (as edo said) more runs and dump offs. Seeing as how Young is about as good as Carr was, we may see a vast improvement in his completion percentage should the Titans go this route. That said, I'll go out on a limb and say that after this next season Young will be benched and possibly traded/cut.

    this offense took Fisher and Steve McNair to the Superbowl with the same OC and the same Head coach showcasing lots of passes to the TE (Wycheck) and a bunch of nobody wr's (Mason was not a high pick). If you look at a little history you can see the blueprint of Fishers first super bowl run taking shape. Instead of McNair to Wycheck you will see lots of Young to Crumpler this season along with lots of running and some excellent defense.

    After watching more stuff about their first round pick, Chris Johnson, I'm both looking forward to seeing the dude play and a bit apprehensive about the dimension he could add to their offense and special teams. The kid is fast, and he's got moves. Johnson and Young are going to be a dual-threat with their running abilities.

    I'm not sure it matters. I, like a lot of people, thought the Tacks were going to be terrible last year because I thought they had a bad offseason. A year later and a season sweep of my beloved Texans, they make the playoffs. Sure hope it doesn't happen again this year.

    I remember that. I was just quiping that OUR version of it didn't fare very well. Actually, with Johnson, White & Young (sounds like a law firm) out of the backfield it will make for a difficult to defend ground game. I expect that there will be a lot of 8 in the box against them.

    Except when they made that Super Bowl run, they actually had a good QB.

    Every team has fans who do not understand the game. Most of yours have actually worked for the Texans. Jazz Hands for example ....:thisbig: :thisbig: :thisbig: [imagine white gloves and perfect hair]

    This is all crazy talk. The Titans are revolutionizing the game. You just wait when they role out the 5 tight end set on the field. A wall of humanity. Even VY has a chance of hitting someone with the same color jersey.
