    there is only one Football God here people. And we all know it isn't Vince Young.

    But I (strangely) agree with Ewker, a lot of people here have Vince Young down as some untouchable, unstoppable and unbeatable player.

    As good as Vince Young can be, there are a lot of questions mark with him and he is just as likely to flop as he is to succeed.

    Painting him up on the Sistine Chapel is a bit premature.

    well mostly I don't agree with you, so it is strange to actually agree for once. :brow:

    Alas, impugning my credibility does precisely nothing to refute the point. You have no evidence that what I say is incorrect. I, on the other hand, have a mountain of evidence to support what I say, having watched every single game he played in college.

    Surely if i am full of ****, you can find one, single instance of Vince getting laid out. I mean, come one. One. :ha:

    As much as I like Young we all have to admit that this is not college anymore and we have seen plenty of supposed great players flop in the NFL. Now I don't think he will flop but it is still a possibility.

    Blindsided, huh?

    Yeah, I’ve seen that a hundred times. A right-handed quarterback drops back, looking right and never sees the defensive end or safety blitz flying in from his left.

    But you know what, Titans2008 and Ewker, sacks are going to happen whether you have a “running” quarterback or not. Now I know you fellows may have your agendas or your axes to grind, but I tend to think both of you are bright, intelligent human beings.

    So please, just stop and think about it for a minute.

    Exactly who is more likely to get blindsided? Your classic drop back passer or a much more mobile quarterback? Hmmm….

    In case you’re wondering, here’s something to chew on: over the last three seasons, Matt Leinart was sacked 56 times, Jay Cutler was sacked 57 times and Vince Young was sacked only 31 times.

    Also Jay lost more games in September than Vince lost his entire career.

    So what? Vince would have lost a lot of games had he gone to Vandy, too...
