    I really don't think Vince did too bad a job (I didn't to begin with) as many other QBs around the league sucked pretty hard.

    Examples

    T. Jackson (Fighting for a starting job)

    7/15 39 yards

    He had 5 more attempts than VY, 2 more completions for the same yardage and didn't score a TD, however he didn't throw a pick either.

    K. Orton (Broncos STARTING QB)

    9/16 89 yards 3 INTS

    He had 6 more attempts than young and 4 more completions but still would have gotten more yards on average. However he threw 3 picks and no TDs

    C. Brennan (3rd string QB, the place where you think VY should be)

    4/12 43 yards 1 INT

    He got more yards, less completions with more attempts and threw a pick without a TD. VY's stats were better than this.

    Ok.. i see what you are saying kinda.... BUT.. Also look at this Chris Simms the QB that we had in our hands here in TN threw for 2 touchdowns and went 11/17 for 142 yards. That is solid and most likely he is going to Win starting job there... I think one of the biggest mistakes we made in the off season was not locking up chris simms as our back up QB but instead he have VY and Patrick "no better than a decent highschool QB" Ramsey...

    i agree, I would have rather kept Simms over Ramsey
    then again, I would have rather took a poke in the eye with a sharp stick than to have depend on either one of them

    I don't see how comparing Vince to Jackson, Orton, and Brennan means anything. None of which were 3rd overall picks. Jackson and Orton suck we already knew that and Brennan's in his 2nd year.

    So QB's on other teams suck with bad play, so we should just accept that kind of play from Young as well.

    Sorry, that doesn't fly with me.

    I expect OUR QB's to play well regardless of how other QB's do.

    If the coaches keep CHen out, VY would be better than most QB today.

    I wasn't saying it was acceptable, I was just saying we shouldn't really jump at VY's throat when other QB's are also as rusty (with better weapons around them than Chris Henry)

    You just picked 2 of the worst active QBs in the league to use as examples as to why Vince wasn't so bad. The other is a big question mark and wont be starting anytime soon.
