    Wow I am speechless on this.....The Texas senators even honor him as well.Where is he going to be honored next? I say George Bush Jr will be the next one...Is fate rubbing it in our face for choosing the wrong guy???

    Hardly. The consensus pick at QB in last year's draft plays for the Arizona Cardinals now. If we made a mistake in our draft board rankings, so did just about every other team. Though it will be years before we know if we made a mistake or not.

    this is about as overboard as Lucky's signature.

    you do remember he won the national championship here for UT?

    that's all they are honoring him for. not his play in the pros. he is a texan remember.

    and who cares who the state senate is honoring. how about they spend some time improving the education system instead of honoring VY.

    Alright!! Thats the way you should greet the president when you both know that you two don't give a David Carr's butt about each other!!

    Its good that they honored him. He should be, he deserves it!

    That's good. Nice to see him get the praise. Cause we all know what he endured and still endures.

    the only reason people made a big deal about it is that meeting with the prez is a somewhat special and most importantly formal occasion, no matter what your politics are. i guess tenn10 was able to find an academy in the DC metro area to grab a fleece pullover for the unmomentous occasion of meeting the leader of the free world.

    I'm not a fan of John Kerry at all but if he was the Pres. and i was to meet him, I'd sure as hell wear a suit and be polite. I'm not saying Vince wasn't polite or anything though... I'm just saying I would be as presentable as possible and show my respect.

    Now about him losing his luggage. that would suck. i'd probably by a cheap suit or rent one...or something...unless i get off the plane and have to go straight there.

    I'm not trying to make that one thing into such a big deal, i'm just saying that I would have shown more respect.

    OMG, he didn't wear a suit to meet the Prez! Big Deal!!

    I'm sure Carr would have worn a full suit and been the most pleasant, stand-up choir boy that you could imagine....what does all of this mean? Absolutely nothing. Give me the QB that can play football and be a great leader to his team.

    Given a choice between the choir boy who wears a suit to meet the Prez and can't play to his abilities OR one who wears a jump suite but improves your team....I'll take the better QB anyday.

    I also heard that his luggage didn't arrive with the flight, been there done that. Also heard that he was still encouraged to attend the function. I don't know if someone Vince Young's size could easily buy or rent a cheap suit in the amount of time that they had. Perhaps in hindsight it would have been better to come up with a flu story and skip the whole thing. That would have probably been criticized as well though.

    Congrats to Young for yet another well deserved honor.

    you know you are either jealous, envious, or placing the blame in the wrong direction when you start attacking the person VY, and not the quarterback VY. Honestly, who cares what he wears?
