    Is Vince Young a better prospect coming out of college than Steve McNair was?

    Good question. Young has seen better defenses but he's also had more talent around him.

    Here's a great article on McNair. You'll read a lot of the same comments people are making now about Young.

    McNair had a MUCH better arm

    That's about as complete a read on McNair as you'll ever find in an article. Thanks, Jeff.

    From the article:

    "In addition, rookie tackle Bryant Mix, a former teammate of Steve’s at Alcorn State, helped shore up the front four. "

    I don't remember Bryant Mix shoring up anything in his time here. Major, major bust.

    "With Alcorn State trailing late in the final period, he moved the team deep into Tigers’ territory. Then, despite limping badly, he tucked the ball under his arm and dove into the end zone for the winning touchdown."

    sounds familiar.

    Young reminds me so much of McNair it's sick.

    They seem purty similar. The biggest transition to make is throwing to covered WR's. McNair seemed to bail out to the TE for a long time. Which was really good for his development and our style. It seems like vince Young also likes to throw short, but as evidenced by the highlights, he's thrown into coverage quite a bit. It'll be interesting to see how he develops as a Titan. Who will be his qb coach? McNair? Or should we bring in some sucky qb like Chandler, lol, or Salisbury, oh god, or DeBerg and his horrendous thumb. Just kidding.

    That is a great article. I think McNair and Young are very comparable. Young may have an edge coming out of college because he's been playing D-I competition and Steve was in D1AA.
    Young is probably a little faster, McNair maybe a little better thrower.
