    Vince is a done deal. give up. Yes, he can run, but defenses figured that out. Watch the videos and see that he overthrows or underthrows WR's every single time.

    Vince Young apologists are a funny bunch.. Where were those wheels the following year? In the locker with his passing game.

    I think I lost a lot of hope in Vince but I sure do miss that guy in that video. It was a lot of fun to watch him play his rookie year.

    I don't know what happened to him mentally. here was a guy who carried his team and a ton of pressure on his back at Texas...in a National Championship game. Came here and started early and went to a Pro Bowl. While he had a lot to learn and improve, he showed remarkable talent.

    Fast forward to the first game this season and the wheels fell off. He didn't play well - no big deal, but he didn't handle the mental part and that is a big part of playing QB in this league. Fisher alluded to this when he mentioned watching Collins play would be very helpful...not in who Kerry threw to against what defense, but handling the mentl part. Some games you're not gonna play well, the fans will get on you...ect. Oh well. Work for the next game.

    If VY can get his maturity and mental toughness down, he'll be a starting QB in this league. If he can't, he won't. We'll find out what the Titans think after next season. If they think he can be the future, they'll keep him. If they don't, they'll trade (not likely due to his contract) or more likely cut him during the uncapped year.

    Hopefully we can see him do some good things in pre-season and mop-up work in blowout games. The first test for him with the Organization was Chris Simms NOT coming back. We know the Titans really liked him and all he wanted was a chance to fight for #2. Now we'll see if the Titans draft a QB early (rnd 1-2)...

    Keep in the back of your mind that after another year, McNabb may ask for his release/trade...

    I agree the draft will be telling what we are going to do about Vince. I admit I was surprised they let Simms get away. I though for sure Fish had him pegged to start after Collins this year.

    Watching that hoge v Vince video was nostalgic. I wish we could get that guy. Maybe there has been some strides made with Vince's maturity and his counseling. I just don't see him recovering significantly enough to land the starting role in 2010.

    Hopefully VY gets released.

    It's gonna be 13-10 forever and ever but at least if VY gets released I can check out his game to see if he's doing something exciting on the days when we're the ones who scored 10.

    I still think this dude is gonna be good but he just isn't ever going to fit here.

    I really think alot of you guys are giving up on VY too soon. Yeah he had his moments, but the guy is still a great player. When he gets the chance again, he will prove that to everyone. Everyone was on his jock during the 06 season. Give the guy a great supportting cast of receivers and you'll see where VY will carry the Titans. I will always support VY.
