    I don't follow that website normally, but I'm thinking about adding it. That was really well written. He's got so much, but there's a long way to go. Everyone has to be careful with his training. It also helps make you realize how difficult it must be being a young QB coming into the NFL. I bet Rivers is still wetting his pants and he's had two years.

    at least the guy who wrote the article is being realistic about Young. He can be great or a bust. Of course some folks have Young in the Hall of fame already

    I'm glad to see Pacman is fitting in well with the rest of the guys in the locker room. Very good article about Vince.

    I found this posted while I was out trolling.

    Titans | Young showing steady improvement
    Sat, 24 Jun 2006 19:38:11 -0700

    Kirk Bohls, of the Austin American-Statesman, reports Tennessee Titans rookie QB Vince Young has been showing steady improvement throughout the offseason. Even Young admitted he got off to a rocky start in his first minicamp. He fumbled his first snap, and linemen jumped offsides on the next two plays. Before the coaches could step in, Young signaled to them that he was in charge, rehuddled and told his new teammates everybody's job was on the line. They laughed, but got the message. "Starting off, I was horrible," Young said. "But I got better and better. I got more relaxed." Young seems to be winning over the coaching staff. Titans' head coach Jeff Fisher has already adapted the Titans playbook, adding bootlegs and rollouts. And the zone read? "I can't tell you all that," Young said. "We've got some nice things."

    I liked what one of the reviewers said,

    ''Honestly, why does it matter how he throws the football? That is like ripping him for running different than other NFLers. Seriously, who cares how he throws the football?. If he can win football games, why does it matter how he throws? As bad as his throwing motion may be, he still threw over 3,000 yds and posted 26 TDs this past year at Texas and I still haven't mentioned his electrifying running ability. So his throwing motion is bad. So what? Develop him and give him time to perfect it. He is an amazing QB that knows how to win.''

    Its basically what I feel on the matter
