    Nice story but there is no justification for a 26 year old 5 year veteran to cuss out his coach and say he quitting the team in front of the team. That is why he is off the team and the half-baked rationalized theory that "Fisher made him do it" is irrelevant. Every person is responsible for their own actions.

    Vince still would have been the QB of this team if he hadn't done that and had the support/confidence of the coaching staff if he had prepared to the level that was expected of him. Vince chose to not prepare as Fisher expected and Vince chose to cuss out Fisher. Vince is responsible for not being on the team any more. Painful to some, but things would have been different if Vince had understood the role of what is expected of a franchise QB and how to interact with his HC in a professional manner.

    Sure- Fisher could have done things differently, but he is the Head Coach. That doesn't really matter. Players need to understand that the HC is the authority to have a well functioning team.

    It amazes me how people still think...

    It amazes me how people still think Young was a legit NFL quarterback. I don't take pride in saying "I told you so"...and the people who have been around for awhile know exactly what I'm talking about. Young has set this franchise back five years...and with out a doubt falls on the same list as Ryan Leaf and Jamarcus Russell. Young was a complete bust at all levels of the NFL, on and off the field. Now the question is what do we do. I honestly don't know. We need a quick fix for next year with a long term answer.

    As someone that DOES take pride in saying "Told Ya So" (members here know this too well)...

    and someone that said Young could never be an NFL qb...

    He proved all doubters wrong.

    I was wrong.
    You were wrong.
    Merril Hoge was wrong.
    Jeff Fisher was wrong.

    You don't lead the leagues' top scoring offense with a top 3 qb rating in the NFL by being a bad QB. Sorry.



    Say he's immature, say he's a diva, say he's an idiot. All are true.

    But if you say he lacked the ability or wasn't being an efficient NFL QB... you're wrong. There's no debate.

    It amazes me that people are still starting these damn threads. :dead::?:

    I supported and rooted for Young every day; he was my teams starting QB and appeared to be our future. He's gone now because he was frail, not because he wasn't talented. Give the right situation he could absolutely be successful, playing for Jeff Fisher just isn't that situation. So now that he's a future FA, let's all just collectively move on.

    anybody that seen VY play the first 7 games of this NFL season knows that young is a pretty good QB. putting him on the same list and russell and leaf is kidding stupid.

    VYs tantrums and off field issues got him canned. not his play

    I just heard it....this is where I come for all of the insightful and recent news.

    I also heard that Brett Favre is leaving the Packers...retiring is what I am hearing.
