VY is the only guy that could break the Madden curse.
wow...dude is just daring fate, 'eh?
I gotta' say, though, that as a skeptic, I don't believe in any of this "Madden curse" nonsense. So no matter what happens, some part of me will benefit. Either he fulfills the curse and we benefit as Texans fans, or he breaks the curse and finally puts a stake in it (making my skeptical side happy).
Draft Vince Young and your franchise gets TWO Monday Night football games and your Franchise is on the cover of Madden.....well, at least we got some dead money to remember Carr by.
Man, I didn't know that the Titans are getting TWO MNF games!!
I didn't believe it either until McNabb. 6 years in a row with injured coverboys and then Alexander last season! Maybe VY will escape it, but it is a good sidestory for the season.
MNF is the riff raff night, Sunday night is the place to be!
VY is going to struggle next year even if he wasnt on the cover. Saying the Titans havent done anything is an understatement.
Brown and Henry are gone so they have a 300 pound Lendale White so no running game.
Lost Bennett and Wade so a couple of unproven, young guys have to try and play.
I'll take a DE over a QB...Kearse or Peppers over Brady or Manning
Look at the history it is not good. The only player to kind of not get it was Eddie George and then there was that fumble in the playoffs for a guy who never fumbles that cost the Titans there season.
Why yes, makes perfect sense:
Kearse and Peppers combined Super Bowls: 0 (lost 3 though, Kearse twice, Peppers once...wasnt Kearse a rookie in the "one-yard" super bowl and with Philly for theirs???)
Brady and Manning combined Super Bowls: 4
And Brady beat both Kearse and Peppers I believe.
I mean, just a coincidence, but Brady had Richard Seymour, Teddy Bruschi and a generally good supporting cast. Manning had Dwight Freeney and a D that stepped up quite a bit during the playoffs. The NFL's number one offense? Lost to the Bears.
Look at premier DEs.
Most have gone to the Super Bowl.
Brady leading a game winning drive against Peppers, i guess, had everything to do with Seymour and Bruschi. Bruschi did make a couple of TD catches in super bowls, however.
And Adewale Ogunleye of the Bears is a slouch I guess. Or maybe he lost due to the fact that he had Grossman and not Manning.
You build a team around a QB, unless your the Ravens (who were led by a MLB, not a DE) of course...they are like the Oakland A's, they make no sense but they win. Teams led by defensive-ends dont win Super Bowls anymore. (keyword, 'anymore')
Yes, they've all gone and only Rice has won one. I'm more intrested in winning a super bowl, not just going.
Wow, just wow.
385 of 385 coaches just said you are insane if you make that choice. C'mon, it is one thing to say you would take Freeney or Peppers over Vick, Carr, stretch it even to Hasselbeck or Romo but none would elect as you suggest, unless by chance you meant Eli and even then they would take him over Kearse.
No way. There's a reason it took Manning until now to win a ring: he finally got a D that stepped up in the playoffs. Before that, Pittsburgh, New England, Tampa Bay, and the Ravens were all at the top of the league as far as Defense. Only the Rams won by their offense, and their D wasn't that bad.
I'd say there's a better chance you get a Carr or an Eli when you get a QB than you would get a Courtney Brown or Jerome McDougle at DE in the draft. There are a lot of factors that go into the play of the QB: the line play, the recievers, the running game, the hair, whatever, but a DE like Reggie White can take over any play any time.
Um, take Manning off that team and they win no ring. Your logic escapes you young vulcan.
The fact that the Steelers, New England and Tampa when they won had Pro-Bowl QBs served no relevance to their Super Bowl victory???
And the Chicago defense was far superior than Indy's, it's just one team had Grossman, the other Manning.
You build a team around a QB, but you will need a defense to win, it's cliche but true.
More like young Ewok.
I personally think that this is great news and may the curse continue for 1 more year.
