Discussion in 'Tennessee Titans and NFL Talk' started by KamikaZ, Nov 26, 2006.
I just got back in town. Glad to see the Titans win looks like it was a close game.
Im not Merril Hodge, but Im not going to wear my " Vince is God " T-shirt anytime soon. Before you put Young into the Hall-of-fame you need to understand the logistics of the game and not take it personally. That being said... it was a great 4th quarter and I hope Young can build on it.
Vince young is creeping up on reggie Bush in rushing yards too. If he overtakes him, holy moly.
Nobody's trying to put Vince in the Hall--all we want is some allowance that he MIGHT be great--some shared hope. You seem to acknowledge one part of the NFL Draft gamble --the potential bust--and this is always in the mix for everyone--but you don't allow for the opposite [which sucks when the guy plays for your own team]
That's the only thing that gets me about those who are continually pessimistic about draft picks--sports is an OPTIMISTIC enterprise. Even late in the 4th quarter, down big, you're sitting there saying "maybe there's a chance." The analogy for you is you would've been saying the whole game (draft pick's career), "there's absolutely no way this team is going to win b/c x, y, z," and then it happens and you realize you've cheated yourself outta the best part of being a fan--optimism in the face of long odds (you think good NFL qb's grow on tree's?--ask the Bears, the odds are not with you)
Hmmm, I dont recall ever saying that Vince should be put in the hall of fame based on his performance. I merely stated that Vince played a great game. and for some reason you disagree. You're pessimism just seems irrational. "Understanding the logistics of the game" - what a bunch of bs. Here's what Giants linebacker Antonio Pierce had to say after the game:
"I don’t have excuses, there are no excuses. We lost the game flat out. Vince Young did a great job for the Titans. You could feel the confidence building in number 10. To me I think it was just him. I don’t know who else to talk about other then number 10. He did a great job today."
I think the Giant's leading tackler would be a credible source to gage Young's performance today. Young played great. Get over it and crawl back into your hole. Im sure you'll come out once he throws his next interception.
Nice Job... So Vince was 10-11 (.909) in the first half! If you throw out the huge drop and the two spikes... Pretty nice.. I think he had one more drop as well in the second half.. It's hard to remember because we've dropped so many passes this year..
I guess you could say he was 24-31 (.774)
Vince also lead the biggest comeback ever by a rookie QB in the History of the NFL..... EVER!
Ha, well you cant throw out stats like that but VY was the most consistent player we had today other then I guess Pac
*pssst*....TitanPride.....your bias is showing.
So Vince just had a good fourth quarter, huh?
Q1 - 4/5, 30 yards
Q2 - 5/6, 53 yards
Q3 - 1/3, 25 yards (Titans held the ball for only 2:53 in the 3rd quarter...seven snaps, total)
Through three quarters, Vince was 10/14, 108 yards. That's a 93.2 QB rating....without including any of his 4th quarter pyrotechnics. (108 yards might not sound like much, but the Titans only held the ball for about 15 minutes through the first three quarters. And last time I checked, 108 yards in 15 minutes was pretty darned good.)
You're dead wrong on this one. What we witnessed tonight is the most phenomenally spectacular performance I've ever seen from a rookie QB in 30+ years of watching football. But you're so jaded by your anti-VY bias, you refuse to acknowledge it.
It sure would be nice if VY had a weapon or two like Fitzgerald and/or Boldin.
I didn't disagree... I stated he had a great fourth quarter, and I hope he can build on it and become a legit star in the NFL.
