NFL  > Tennessee Titans  > People Living in past on Vince Young
August 24, 2009, 11:31 AM
Every time I go through and read posts about Vince Young, there are always people who keep going back and talking about the Texas vs USC Rose Bowl.

Guess what: That was College, and that was years ago. This is NFL and this is the present, here and now.

Why do people claim that Vince Young needs a team who can build around his strengths, as in adjust an entire team around one player? What strengths as a QB does Vince have? So all of a sudden, its the Titan's fault VY isnt doing well (read: terrible)?

Vince Young, after the Dallas game, pointed the finger at everyone else and said not to blame him for his performance. Wow. Really? This guy just cant keep his mouth shut, can he?

If you can perform well vs third stringers, what hope do you have against regular starters in the regular season?

But wait, you say, Vince went to the Pro Bowl. Yeah, after 3 qb's ahead of him declined to go. Stop living in the past. When Vince gets cut at the end of the season, are people gonna say ' Man, the Titans are gonna regret cutting him cuz he won the Rose Bowl!'

or

'The Titans didn't change their entire game plan to fit around Vince's lack of passing skills, so its Titan's fault!'

The difference between Matt Lienart and Vince is that Matt keeps his mouth shut and does what he can to prepare for the game: he doesnt sulk on the bench, and refuse to talk with the starting QB. Its almost sad with Matt: he is a far better QB than Mark Sanchez but Sanchez can start this season. But if you believe that Collins is too old and past his prime, tell that to an older Kurt Warner
