Vince Young said what on ESPN?

So VY sat down for an interview with ESPN’s Marceullus Wiley attempting to set the record straight about his demise with the Tennessee Titans. From the words coming out of Young’s mouth, you would think this guy was one of the greatest QBs of all time. Here are some of the ludicrous excerpts of the conversation:

Young said he felt he and Fisher had a great relationship but didn't get along with different personalities

As for Adams choosing Fisher over Young, the quarterback said he didn't have the slightest idea why.

"Definitely I am a starting quarterback, an elite quarterback in the NFL. I want to go ahead and start. But like it always is, the coaches have the last word

"It goes back to communication. Our chemistry should've been a little bit better ... That's why the season kind of finished like it was," Young said.

That loud noise you heard was the entire state of Tennessee’s jaws dropping at one time. What the hell is he talking about? I don’t even know to begin on start on this one. Elite QB? He had a great relationship with Jeff Fisher? Obviously he is doing some damage control here as he prepares to go to his next team, but come on Vince, your not pulling the wool over anyone with those comments. When was the last time an NFL team allowed an “elite QB” to walk? Could you imagine Peyton Manning, Tom Brady, Drew Brees, Phillip Rivers or any other real “elite” QBs going through the things Young did in Tennessee? Thanks didn’t think so. If VY thinks that he and Fisher had a great relationship then he is just down right delusional. Hell, Tiger Woods and Elin Nordegren shake their heads at the Fisher and Young relationship.

And lastly, this communication thing he speaks of. This is coming from a guy who texted, not called Jeff Fisher two days after their sideline confrontation. You would think he would have had the common decency to give his boss a call after he cursed him out and stormed out the locker room. Communication you say? How about having the entire city of Nashville on lookout for him after he reportedly left his house with a gun and in a suicidal state after not telling anyone where he was going. This guy I tell you has issues. He will get another shot somewhere in the NFL because of the nature of recycled QBs. Will he ever get the elevator to the top in his head is another question. I supported Young every since his Texas days but those memories are out of sight and out mind these days. The interview was like a smack to my intelligence. I get the sense that Young still thinks the NFL is that easy. He never made mention of changing his work ethic or his ways through out the interview. He never showed any sense of humility after being basically let go by the team and owner that had the faith to draft him 3rd despite all of the knocks he had coming out of college.

Hope you land in a good place with a solid foundation VY because you will need it.


  1. The Arizona Cardinals need a QB but I wonder if Vince Young has too much baggage.

  2. I don't know if Whisenhut would like VY's mental toughness especially Matt Leinart but besides that i don't why not. I'm not sure if you guys will want him after a few games lol
