    Of Course it's an opinion piece! I don't think it claims anything more than that. I just don't think it's a vicious attack and biased against him more than it is valid opinion. Of course the guy doesn't know anything, but he's saying Young has had three shots where the public got to see how he's handling himself in preparation for the NFL, and he hasn't handled those well...

    Hoffa, while Peyton hasn't won the big game, and I'll always dog him for it, I don't think I can argue with him being a success in the NFL. While I don't like the guy's additude, he works his *** off, and is a pretty damn good QB. Young can do amazing things, but he'll be better if he puts more time in preparing...

    How has he not handled himself well in terms of character? By not wearing a suit when meeting the president? It is a frivolous article with no real basis.

    How do you know how much time he is putting in?

    I may be against us drafting Young, but I don't see character as a concern. He may be a bit immature, but I haven't seen anything that makes it sound like he's any kind of a problem.

    You don't. But wouldn't you be real scared if he had been studying like crazy and still got a 6?

    FYI, Leinhart is the one who seems to have more immaturity problems, at least from what I've read and heard. Young is a fairly humble guy, and the disses on Young in that article (fairly baseless article for the most part IMO) weren't that big a deal (it's called being 20 years old).

    The author sounds stuck in the 60s to me. I don't really want Young, but I know BS when I read it.

    Yes, it is a sign of how you handle yourself when you don't wear a suit to meet the president, it also sticks out because everyone else was properly dressed.

    The bigger issue is preparation for the Wonderlic and choosing his agent.

    As to "how much time he is putting in", I have no idea. Not the point. The point is that he was either unprepared for the Wonderlic, which is a bad sign, or he really is not very bright. Maybe you don't put much stock in it, but it's a pretty damn easy test, and that low a score at least isn't a good sign. Anyway, the article was more based off of how he is handling his opportunities so far, and saying that if he doesn't step up when he gets to the NFL, he's in for a rude awakening. I really don't think it's that crazy a point.

    The whole time I was reading this article, I kept thinking "Did Young beat up Whitlocks son or something?" :ha:

    My friend tells me this guy is somewhat notorious to bash Texas players.


    Just FYI to consider the source, that's all.
