    I'm saying he was accurate. Especially on the deep ball. Something Locker can only dream of...

    I find it funny that someone would try to argue Vince Young was accurate.

    Lucky yes, accurate hell no.

    No leaders throw their shoulder pads in the end zone right?

    yea this isn't even worth arguing. not a single group of people outside of sentimental Titans fans are going to agree with you. Vince was all flash and no substance.

    I'm not saying he was a good QB by any means. I'm saying he was worth more than Locker.

    In 5 years if Locker still throws the ball like it's a grenade, he'll be unemployed too.

    Because interceptions hurt.

    For his career, 46 TD's, 51 Ints.
    Locker 12 TD 7 int


    Completion percentage for career, 57.9. (Locker is at 55.4 so actually pretty damn close, and not 6 years worth of data yet) That could help, or hurt him.

    Yards per game: VY 149 for his career
    Locker: 167

    Yards per attempt: VY 6.9
    Locker 7.2

    I just dont see the logic. Im sorry, but every stat leads against your argument except completion percentage and Ill take the 2 percentage less for that TD/INT ratio any day of the week.

    Keep in mind, I dont hate VY, and not one of the people who have a boycrush on Locker. Im being as objective as I can.

    The one thing that VY had on Locker was his legs (when he would actually use them)


    VY yards per attempt rushing 5.2
    Locker 7.5

    (both years that Locker played, he had higher than any of VY's running averages)

    in order to change my, or anyones mind, youre going to have to say more than "just because"

    you're using stats from VY's first few seasons. When we all know after his time on the bench behind KFC he was a completely different QB.

    When he came back in 2010 and led us to 6 straight wins he was a far, far better QB than Jake Locker, from that point til the Washington game.

    well yea but that's a stupid argument. we went no where with Vince and he proved he was a head case and moved on. Vince was not worth anything to this team. you can thank him for four turbulent years and atleast the 3 we get from Locker. so that's 7 years practically wasted depending on Locker.
