    I've kept quiet on this whole thing because I really want to see Vince win. I met him a few years ago at APSU and he was a class act. He definitely made an impression on me.

    If Vince really did try to take himself out of the Chargers game (without injury and the Titans winning), then it is hard for me to imagine a universe when I am ever cheering for him again. Absolutely inexcusable.

    He seems more and more like a basket-case. But I blame those longhorn fans for acting like he was something he wasn't. He's a victim of the hype machine.

    He should ease the tension with a nice dogfight.

    That was a comment on that page, fcking hilarious. Really though, if this is true then that is absurd, 1. because VY really needs some help with areas of his life that may be more important then football (dare I say) and 2 because an actual team therapist is spilling information about VY that was no doubt gathered in a private, confidential session with Vince. Where the hell is that persons sense of professionalism or respect for their career? That, to me, is far more alarming then anything concerning Vince. VY has more pressure on him then most people ever will and he's constantly in the public eye, I could understand a 25 year old having difficulties dealing with such issues. That being said, if he's not performing then bench his a$s, I feel for him as a person, but sympathy isn't a good enough reason for me to want him taking snaps and throwing picks...

    For Fisher to bench his starting QB, I'm betting that these reports of Vince trying to pull himself out of games are legit. Fisher doesn't yank starting players for any reason - much less such a high profile #3 draft pick. I have no idea what to think at this point, but Vince has to prove a lot before his teammates, coaches or fans will trust him behind center again. I hate to say it but I'm really glad we snagged Simms off the street - I'd rather a VY playing to his potential, but if that never happens Simms could get a nice 2nd chance here.

    It's a troublesome story. I hope it's either not true, or he can use this situation to get himself put back together. It's now or never.

    I keep going back to Haynesworth and how he was a raw talent who underachieved, played poor technique, wasn't dedicated, did some stupid things, etc.

    The light came on for him while he was suspended. The guy finally got it but it took some dramatic stuff to happen first. Maybe this does the same for Young.
