    I remember back in '05 I was walkin' down the street and Austin, and I got some bubble gum stuck in my hair. Vince Young was walking by, opened up his backpack, took out a jar of peanut butter, and got that gum right out of my hair.

    I don't think Mario woulda had peanut butter. He would have just used scissors or somthin'.

    You guys are honestly telling me that with the number 1 pick overall.. at that 1 pick. You would have taken Young. Don't get me wrong he's an athlete. Personally I don't like him but he wasn't a number 1 overall pick.

    I guess your safe with that comment for the next 4 years or so.........Seeing how he has not played a down in the NFL.

    I think we made a great choice with Mario.

    I remember when Vince beat the dynasty of USC, in one of the greatest games ever played in college football-- possibly solidifying himself as the best college football QB ever to play, silencing any critics.. Then, is hometown team, the Texans, who had a quarterback who didn't have one winning season in four years, passed on this match made in heaven. Instead, the City of Houston's arch nemesis, Bud Adams, drafted Young with the third pick, looking to distrot Texan fans all over. What's next? We shall see!

    i'll never forget watching madison high school highlights a few years back, seeing vince run through the defense like a man among boys, wondering if he could do the same thing in college. luckily, he went to ut where they're not so conservative with the offense and his athletic abilities were on display every week, making each pass or run look so effortless. i'll never forget the night against usc, when he showed the nation who the real heisman winner was, again looking so poised and undeterred. i wish him well in the nfl.

    Once upon a time Vince Young fans everywhere finally came up for air, the extreme suction caused a disruption in the Earth's rotation, knocking it from it's axis and sending the Earth, with it's billions of inhabitants spinning toward the sun. Only Vince, with his super human abilities could save the world, using his inVINCEibility he returned the Earth to it's rightful place in the galaxy.

    In gratitude the people of Earth renamed their planet "Vincelandia" and returned to their favorite place declaring to never come up for air again.

    The End

    I wouldn't have ..... too much of a risk at the #1 pick that his talent will translate to the NFL ... but that's just me

    Lets see him play first, you think he will be great, marquee and very special QB..............I think he is a marquee, great and very special Athlete, but so is Reggie McNeal, and I personaly think Reggie has a better arm.
    But that is my opinion. We will just waite and see I could be wrong.:cool:

    Gary Kubiak has said Carr is the most improved player on the Texans . Eric Moulds says Carr has a world of talent . You can only speculate until they play but I'll bet Vince is not as good as some people want to believe and Carr's not as bad .

    I think Vince was going back to Texas until the Rose made his stock rise . He was returning because he was not a polished product ... so what happened to make him a polished player a Titan offseason , I think not .

    Vince might end up a good QB , but I'm thinking Mario and Carr are a better option . I do not think Vince will be an all time great .

    THAT IS BRAND NEW INFORMATION! How did you come up with that, I can't believe I haven't hear this before. :deadhorse

    How do you know the Texans made a mistake drafting Mario? If your lines aren't any good, the people behind them can't succeed either no matter who they are!

    And BTW, I am huge VY fan and UT season ticket holder, I just don't feel VY was the best fit for our team, meaning we had a bigger need at other positions a.k.a. D-Line. But what does Kubiak know, he has only been playing, teaching, coaching, and evaluating talent for most of his life....but I am sure you are right. :rolleyes:

    I agree, DC and Mario were better options for us w/ Kubes staff. However, I think Vince will be a great player. He has "it" combined w/ rare athletic ability. Although it will take 2-3 years, I think Vince will be an awesome QB if the Titans give him the support he needs.

    Yeah Vince is a great athlete, but he has never played in the NFL, its a totally different story up here...plus we had to fill voids, and Williams was the best choice for the Texans

    I opened this thread thinking it would be a place to submit any stories/experiences that any of us have personally had with Vince Young, I guess I was mislead by the title. The couple times I've seen/met him he barely acknowledged my existence and didn't seem overly friendly, although I can't say I'd be a bubbly, happy, talkative person towards the general public if I was a professional athlete.

    Its just like all the Vick hype when he first came out. He was going to be the Jordan of the NFL, now 4 years later not too much talk of Vick. Just another running QB with below average passing abillities. Young won't even live up to that hype, he's slower that Vick, is too upright when he runs and is going to take some serious hits in the NFL. He's not going up agianst Rice, UH, N.Texas, Balor.
