Meet Vince Young, ‘Elite’ Quarterback

01.20.11 8 years ago 5 Comments

Tennessee Titans quarterback (for now) Vince Young really is a double threat. Not only can he do ridiculous things, he can say them, too. Consider his comments in the wake of the team’s comments that they would either trade or cut Young before 2011, with my added emphasis:

“I’m going to go into [a new] organization, the team, and compete. That’s all I can do, and let them make their own decision after that,” Young said. “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.”

That’s right, Vince. You’re an elite NFL quarterback. Just look at all those times that you started all 16 games in a season, or all those years you threw for 3,000 yards or more, or all of those playoff games that you won…Because that’s what elite quarterbacks do.

But you never did any of those things, Vince. No, your MO is to show up shirtless in clubs with other dudes and running out on your coach, to the point where he’s either calling the cops to make sure you don’t kill yourself or fetching your shoulder pads out of the stands. Great job, Vince. See you in Cincinnati’s training camp next summer.
