    This statement, put in context with the first half of it, was not at all as it is portrayed here. He said it was Fisher's decision and he would compete for the job first. And this comment came after about 3 minute spill about competing for the job and being a team player. Watch ESPN if you want to see it. Video is playing. It was very friendly and relaxed.

    The underlying message is there regardless. The thing we all know is that this is not a competition. It's kerry's job. Vince cannot win it back. He will be sitting for two more years. He knows it. We know it. Who doesn't.

    Once the contract for Kerry was signed for 2 years. This became an impasse.

    I've said for a year now, a VY trade demand is imminent. This is an impossible situation. If the Titans don't start looking, it's going to come to a head. Do it now. This is the first hint that this isn't going to work. It's so obvious, but yet, we do nothing. Are the Titans even looking at the dollars? This move is a no brainer.

    Second, I do think there will be interest. There are a lot of teams out there who will look at the numbers. And they will see what I see. A qb rating of 85 plus for the last 6 games started. 3 100 plus games in those six. And they will see the winning percentage. And they will want both. VY has a small market.

    But the more they let this fester, the less value the Titans will get. Do it now to get something.

    That's the point. No one does. This is a rejoice thread.

    Vince has nothing to worry about. He will have at least 20 teams interested in him...














    ...as a #2 QB.

    He could easily end up in Seattle or Minnesota. Hasselback is winding down and that coach knows what to do with a running QB. Vince and Harvin and Adrian would create match-up issues all over the place. Would you seriously take Jackson over Young? Go ahead and tell yourselves he's aweful and no one wants him. You're just judging the world thru you little provential lens. But, I'm not sure that this isn't just a wake up call for all concerned in the Titans organization that you can't tell a kid like this to ride he pine forever while your aging QB hopes he can repeat last year's glory. Its a new season- 08 doesn't mean anything more than 06 does now.

    Yes.

    Vince looked good in '06 because he was a rookie. If he played like that in any other season, it wouldn't have been as impressive. Teams figured him out after '06.

    The day VY finishes a season with a positive TD/INT ratio is the day I muster up an ounce of belief in him.

    I agree with you, which is why i haven't completely written him off. While last yr and the year before before proved that he obviously needs some work Kerry, hasn't played great in his career. Last year for him may have been like Vince's 06 season. So 09 is a whole new yr and Vince is once again the rookie who just needs to show that there is something in there that can be unleashed into a NFL QB. I just wish VY would lay low and that we hear nothing about him until training camp, but the kid has been in the spot light all his life so laying low isn't really his cup of tea. The way i see it, sure he is out there partying. But so are other players, it's just that because he is Vince young, everything is being watched and he's unaware of it. He's not shooting ppl, fighting or being arrested so this is laying low to him. Were paying him to play football so that's where I'll judge him. I just really want him to STFU because i have a fathead of him in my room and i really would like to look at it and not be embarrassed.

    A player with questions about his mental health and heart has little trade value until he's shown that he's overcome his issues by returning to play well.

    It costs the Titans $4.5 mill in 09 to see if VY can bounce back and return to finish what he started in 06. He'll have more trade value if he shows something on the field in 09 than what he has right now.If he really has changed and improved they might also want to keep him.

    He has two years left on his contract after 09.In those years his salary jumps to $10 and $11 mill respectively.Any team trading for him has to pick up that tab or persuade him to renegotiate for more realistic money.

    Put it all together and he has zero trade value as things stand right now.
