    One game never means a thing..

    There are many things to be concerned about with vince young. For one he is not dominating with his legs. 80 yards(20 carries) rushing in 3.5 games of play isn't bad but he was unstoppable in college.

    Then there are the 5 fumbles. Totally unacceptable and experience doesn't automatically reduce their number.

    As a passer young looks fine at this stage. 56 passing rating with 3TDs and 4 ints is acceptable for a rookie as long as he keeps improving along the way but i'm concern about his accuracy. He must complete 50% or more of his passes.

    VY accuracy % would be higher if receivers caught the passes that he delivered into their hands, but they dropped.

    Hoffa...

    He also seems to have a pass or two every game that could have been intercepted but is dropped.

    Edit stat note, young is 47-99 so far this season. If he completes 5 straight passes to start his next game he will be 52-104 50%.

    Hawk..

    I just think the team is playing better in part because the other players can rally behind a guy like Vince that refuses to accept losing, unlike Collins for whom losing has become the norm. Making that switch at QB was key IMO to how the team has played the last two weeks.

    roll,

    one of those fumbles was actually a bad shotgun snap, which goes against vince's stats and the other was a botched snap from under center at the end of the first half in the chargers game.

    so it's not like he is just dropping the ball in the middle of the pocket. but i do think fumbling has been a little bit of a problem dating back to college. when he tries to evade pressure he does kind of leave the ball out from his body.

    GoT is right..
