can't nobody tell me nothing! :ha:
Free Agent Derrick Brooks - "I didn't want to have any setbacks by playing in the Pro Bowl.'' That alone is why the league is changing more today than ever, not necessarily the young fools of league not maximizing on opportunities by paying attention to detail. But the fact that players aren't so enthusiastic about the Pro Bowl anymore is one of many signs that the game has changed. I am not a huge fan of the Pro Bowl either, but it is the NFL's All-Star game, so I do watch.
Now in a day where players care more about their Madden ratings than winning we shouldn't be so shocked if these millionaire rookies don't bother with these vets anymore. Why would they, these up incoming players are more covered by the media than any vet ever was. The exposure has really altered these guys minds. These days high schools are being put on ESPN and in SI so to those open eyed teens being on T.V. at 16/17 their like (we're the shiit fukc whatcha heard, why should we listen to some dried up has-beens). I for one would pick the brains of these proven soon to be NFL legends 24/7 365.
The piece of the article stating - "Vince Young should suck up all the knowledge Kerry Collins has to offer! There's no better role model for him.'' I would only hope he was smart enough to take advantage of that. I'm also pretty sure he was pissed off about the whole thing happening the way it did and didn't want to be bothered by Collins at times. However knowing how Vince's personality is, I know he is interested in bettering himself. No matter what any article says.
P.S. Derick Brooks,
The United Football League is starting up, and so far several NFLers will be there.
That's so sig-worthy
your right...it is...:grrhee:
John Clayton on Vince:
Say's if Collins does well this season, Vince is a goner. Suspects some Wildcat formations utilizing Vince and he has a year to prove himself.. 49ers fan interested in Young as well..
Seems to contradict what Fisher said about Vince being the Titan's QB of the future.
Given their credibility, Imma go with Fish on this one.
Fish also said cryptically almost the same thing Clayton is saying here - around the time they re-signed Collins..
John Clayton on Vince and others;
I certainly wouldn't expect the Titans to move Vince now or even down the road. As long as he's the back-up and not any thing less, I feel they'll retain Young until his contract is up. There is a lot of hope in his potential in Tennessee.
If Vince doesn't show something THIS YEAR - he's gone. Count on it.
As has been discussed, MANY TIMES, Cruds is right, he'll be way to expensive after this season unless he restructures, and I doubt he'd want to.
