    If VY does not progress under Dinger within the next 2 years, I'm just about done with him. I doubt that will happen though.

    i am not being stupid. i see this all the time. if a player leaves a team it was his fault for sucking


    if a coach leaves it was his fault for the players suckiing. i read it everyday on teams boards. its quite hilarious.

    Sometimes. Starks is a good example of that.

    It's cause and effect. Sometimes it is the coach, sometimes it is the players. You go to other teams boards? How many?

    I'm not comparing the two as passers, just in terms of accuracy. You're sitting here dogging Vince's accuracy and calling him a bust when he took a team that was on the bottom of the league and put them in the playoffs his sophomore year. 63% isn't bad completion percentage by any standards, period. Everyone called Eli a bust right until he won the Super Bowl. I know you're stubborn and refuse to look at the facts but the bottom line is Vince is a C+/ B- QB with a lot of potential. His receiving core is gaining experience, we just picked up one of the best receiving TEs of the past 6 years, and he now has an offensive coordinator who can help harness his abilities and hopefully turn him out. I doubt that Vince will ever put up Peyton Manning numbers, but if he can put up 2800 yards and 22 TDs year in and year out, look for us in the AFC Championship game. Its his third year man, give the dude a break, bring some factual evidence instead of just hating and naysaying. No one can predict how good a QB is going to be in the first four years of his career, not even The Mighty OmahaColt

    In VY's 1st 2 years the Titans were 8-8 and 10-6(playoffs). I have no doubts VY will be a great player.

    Wow you would think the Colts would have more than 1 championship with Manning, Harrison, Wayne, and a great OL. I guess it was the defense.
