    VY isn't going to do jack and if he was any kind of decent back up the Eagles would have extended him. This is a lateral move for Young.

    VY is irrelevant now. He's lost a good amount of athleticism that once made him a threat.

    But hey, you never know, maybe he'll surprise everyone by working his butt off and pulling a Mike Vick.

    I was referring to Vick having a MVP year 2 seasons ago after everyone wrote him off.

    The big difference in that Mike Vick was doing amazing things right out of the gate up until he was busted and convicted and sent off to jail. Atlanta did have an off season in there, but Vick wasn't an issue. Coming off a jail stint and experiencing that leap in personal growth was in many people's minds unlikely. He certainly persevered there and triumphed. Whereas Vince Young had some great games and a lot of spotty performances in a good number of fortunate wins, many which came off teams in the lower half of the league. He did have some amazing games, true, the game versus the Giants at home where Pacman got the picks and the Titans came back three scores in the fourth, but even his signature moment, in my opinion, was at home versus the Cardinals who were not their usual selves. That was an amazing win for him, but the Cardinals were below average in the match-up. The point is, Michael Vick was and is an all-pro who made a comeback where Vince Young is a Offensive Rookie of The Year / Pro Bowl alternate, who in reality, is, and likely will remain, a never was.

    He had some great moments for the Titans but ultimately he's bust.
    The $2 mill nudges his actual NFL earnings ti just over $50million. Nice work if you can get it. :rolleyes:
