EuTee Vawl writer takes issue with the Titans off'field problems. One of the guys mentioned in the story even came froom EUTee. This is too much:
I am back in.
Hook line and sinker.
I am 100% buying into Vince Young. Again.
He has convinced me. Again.
I am setting myself up to be totally let down. Again.
But I just can't help it. The kid has his mojo back.
Lat night was one of the gutsiest performances I have ever seen from a quarterback.
I still think he is a primadonna crybaby, and I still think he is a beer or two short of a sixpack, but the guy seems to no longer be a headcase.
He can win games. The Titans can win with Vince Young.
He's won me back. Most importantly, he seems to have won back his teammates and the coaching staff. It was awesome to see him between series chatting it up with Heimerdingger, or *gasp* looking throught the playbook.
Now, I didn't care for the postgame interview at all. He seems to still not have taken full responsibility for his implosion.
But He has my complete and total support from here on out.
I have to give it to the kid - he sure makes following the Titans iinteresting. Of course, interesting is not always good. Lots of things are interesting. It's interesting when you blow a tire going 75 mph down the interstate in rush hour traffic. That doesn't make it desirable. When two passenger trains collide because some dumb ass forgot to switch the tracks that is interesting. The Vince Young era has been a complete roller coaster ride. Actually, more than that. On a roller coaster ride, you can be scared as hell, but you always are able to tell yourself "this ride is safe. They wouldn't have opened the thing and let people on it if it wasn't safe." With the Titans, at least this year, it hasn't felt safe. It feels like everyone has been asleep at the switch. And with Vince Young you never feel safe.
But Vince Young has done something I honestly never thought he would do again in this league. Play smart, efficient football and win games.
So who is Vince Young? Is he a guy with an erratic personality and erratic style, who is always going to be up and down, and hurt his team as much as he helps his team? Think Aaron Brooks, Part II.
Is he a kid whose psyche is so fragile and shattered at this point that it is only a matter of time before he implodes again?
Is he a guy who had a temporary emotional breakdown, but has now gotten over it, but whose upside will always be limited by his lack of preparation and dedication to his craft?
Or is he a guy who really has matured, who has put his issues behind him, who has grown up and learned what it means to be a professional in the league, and who really is the natural born leader he seemed to be his rookie year?
I don't think anyone knows at this point.
I think 8 more games will be enough to figure it out. The NFL is a tough, unforgiving league. If Vince still has huge flaws that will prevent him from ever being a long term starting QB in the league, 10 total games should be enough to expose that.
It's a huge issue. I was ready to flush the toilet on Vince's career, but man, if the guy can be salvaged, and, more importantly, if the Titans can rely on him, it sure solves alot of problems.
Two games in to Vince Young v 3.0, and so far, so good.
8 more games to find out who this kid really is.
Will the real Vince Young please stand up?
I can take the 0-6 record.
I can take the 59-0 embarassment.
I can take the terrible hiring of Cecil as DC.
But THIS is unforgivable. Apparently, Fisher thinks it's funny at some conference to take off his jacket, revealing a Peyton Manning jersey, and saying "now I know what it feels like to be a winner" or something. Just seeing him in this god awful jersey made throw up in my mouth.
It's shaping up to not only be bad seasons for my two favorite teams, but historically bad. Laughably bad. Embarassingly bad. "Time to break out the paper bags" bad.
Vandy reached its new low last week when it lost to Army, the shittiest of the service academies. I like the army and all, but this was a terrible loss. Vandy's offense may be the worst offense to be fielded in SEC history. Perhaps the history of Division I. Our QB has lost all confidence. He was a young guy to begin with, and combine that with a beat-up, porous offensive line, and terrible WRs, and the results are predictable. And when I say bad WRs, I am talking about two white kids and a guy from Africa. Not exactly murderer's row there.
Then the Titans set their new low this week with the absolute roll over against the Patriots. There is no where to go but up for the Titans. I am not a knee-jerk kind of guy when it comes to coaches, but I really feel like it is time to move on from the Jeff Fisher regime. Just re-boot the whole thing, clean house, and start over with a new everything. There comes a time when it is time to make a change if nothing more than for the sake of change. That time is now in Nashville. The players are tired of Fisher, the fans are tired of Fisher, and Fisher looks like he is burned out.
The good news is I can just sit back and wattch football now, without all the angst of last season when Vandy and the Titans were both shooting for something special. Of course, that's what makes sports interesting, but oh well. At least I can still pull for the Saints.
Top 10 Steve McNair moments:
Some ones that could have been included are the Giants comeback, and the New England ice ball where, even the the Titans lost, McNair made it interesting. And the Steelers game where McNair came off the bench in the 4th quarter, injured, to win the game. That was the game where I finally really started to appreciate McNair.
Man, this just sucks.
