    That quote was great.

    That article hit the nail on the head why so many of us have serious doubts about him becoming a Titan. Its not just his Wonderlic.

    Good column. I hope Young reads it, cuz his posse is dragging him through the dirt, inadvertently, I'm sure.

    This guy raises character issues that none of us have seen.....Including him. Nothing but a bash article.

    And a classless one at that.

    Only three facts in the article.

    1. Poor initial Wonderlic then a 16. (plenty of NFL greats that re-took or got a 16)
    2. Chose his buddy for his agent. (poor judgement)
    3. He didn't wear a suit to meet the president.

    The rest was spin and hype. I don't know Vince that well, but I don't think he has a criminal record or h/o night club incidents or emotional short-comings. I'm particularly irritated a major premise of the article was "the NCAA aint the NFL". No SHI7! Every other NFL great had to make the same transition and to speculate that Vince can't do it because he doesn't know how, or have the desire or ability, to is preposterous. If the article were fair he'd reference NFL greats that were draft sleepers or NFL bombs that did wear a suit.

    I read the article and it is just an opinion piece. I don't see anything that shows Young has "bad" character. Is this guy saying that Young was the only player that goes around with a "posse"? Some may call them "a group of friends". According to John McClain, Major Adams is a well respected attorney that is legit. getting into the sports agent business and that Young isn't his only client.

    I have said I would like to draft Young, but ONLY after he has been put thru the ringer by our staff. The tests at combine etc., I couldn't care a hill of beans about. I care about what our staff sees when they put him to the test. I do find it ironic that suddenly Young is a bad and immature person eventhough everything during his career at Texas point to otherwise. Makes you wonder if this guy who wrote this has an agenda.

    Titans don't need Reggie either. They need a QB first and Young isn't the one.
