    Well, it's more than 15 years since Steve Young "came out". Besides Steve Young was a pretty damn good passer as well, most seasons he eclipsed the 3000 or 4000 yard marker. His TD/INT ratio was good too. His career rating is 92.8, Vick for instance hasn't even had a single season rating come close to that.

    So your thought is that Young isn't a good passer? Based on what?

    If that was directed at me, I never said a such thing. I just wanted to correct a misunderstanding that Steve Young was a "running quarterback" like Vick, when in fact he was a "passing quarterback" who could run. His primary weapon was the pass, whereas Vick's primary weapon is the run.

    Nobody knows how good Vince Young will be at running or passing in the NFL.

    I think right now it is safe to say that Young is a Passing QB that can run....run really, really well.

    Safe to say? I would say Young has proven he is better than Vick coming out of college. I wouldn't say Young is considered a "passing" QB like a guy like Leinart is.

    I will say Young was the top rated Passer in college football last year. That has to account for something.

    Anyone can look good if all you do it watch the highlights.

    I'm not saying Vince isnt good, but to think that watching a highlight video is going to make someone see the light is silly.

    It doesn't matter if we see the light, only the coaches.

    Yep, if we watched a highlite video of Charlie Ward the year he won the Heisman and led FS to a national championship one could say he was a can't miss NFL QB.

    I am sure our staff has seen more than just highlight reels. The good thing is that with the top 3 QBs, no one knows them more than the Titans. Cutler is in their backyard, Chow knows Leinhart and Young has been hanging around McNair and the Titans since High School. I have know doubt they will have no doubt when they pick.
