    Chow addressed VYs footwork on a number of occasions, the problem just wasn't corrected. What's to make us think they will be now? Vince is the only one who can change, coaches can talk till they're blue in the face, ultimately it's up to Vince to be an accomplished passer, he's got two years left.

    I don't think people remember what he used the "can't nobody tell me nothing" quote for. The interviewer asked if people had told him to calm down on the predictions he was making and then he responded by saying that. Some of you guys make it out to be like the interviewer asked if he would listen to coaches criticism and that was his response.

    Yeah. This story got me more excited about the upcoming season than anything that happened in the draft this weekend.

    If having a bad season woke Young up and made him listen to coaches more, then it'll be worth it.

    It may have been addressed, but not necessarily emphasized before... I got the feeling Chow and Fisher wanted Young to get the mental game down first - understand the offense and get a feel for the timing with his receivers. Probably a good strategy not to mess with his mechanics too much until he is seeing the field properly. Maybe this is a good sign that they feel he has that down well enough.

    And yea... the "nobody can't tell me nothin" attitude doesn't seem to apply to the field. From all we've seen he's been very coachable.

    I think we are going to see a completely different type of offense. It is obvious with Johnson we will see more spread offense which I think will really open things up for Vince. We are going to more of a zone blocking scheme as well.

    All this talk about getting weapons for Vince we forgot the biggest...Dinger.

    I could also see them implement a little more of the zone read that vince did in college with chris johnson. I know vince's rookie year they did it some, but didn't have the explosive back to be effective.

    Thank you.

    There's not much more frustrating than people taking quotes out of context.
