    I hear Vince Young is going to take his place on defense.

    No, the only other position VY could play is Tight End.

    Since he's out of the AFC South, do we have to still call him Vanden Douche?





















    YES.

    You can count on Bud Adams always doing what Bud Adams does.

    When the talent gets too expensive, he unloads it. Always has and always will.

    We saw how badly the Titans are defensively when they can't get a pass rush. More exposure of those probowler ********s in the secondary sure to come!

    Vanden Bosch wasn't very good last year or the year before. Lions overpaid for a guy who's past his prime

    True, but he still wreaked havoc on us. I think this is really good news. Even if they drafted someone else to fill his shoes, they shouldn't have that type of impact right off the bat. I wasn't a fan of his by any means, but he appeared to have a pretty good motor and always seemed to be in the backfield.....atleast from what I'm remembering. I'm going strictly from memory though, I'm not a stat guy and have nothing to back that up, so I could be way off base.
