Vince Young says he plans to compete to start
2 hours, 1 minute ago

ShareEmailPrintNASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP)—Vince Young(notes) has his sights set on competing to be a starter for an NFL team.

Young says in a segment aired by ESPN on Wednesday night that he will work to let his next team know he’s an elite quarterback who just wants to win games and be the best. Asked if he could work as a backup, Young laughed.
“I’m going to go into the 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.”

Vince Young last played on Nov. 21. Tennessee owner Bud Adams actually had the last word Jan. 5 when the Titans announced that they would either release Young or try to trade him away because he’s not in their plans for 2011. Adams agreed with coach Jeff Fisher the quarterback drafted No. 3 overall in 2006 had to go after an incident Nov. 21.

That’s when Young cursed at the coach and blew out of the locker room. The Titans placed him on injured reserve two days later, and Young had surgery to repair a torn tendon in his right thumb. But the team can’t release Young until Feb. 7, and a trade won’t happen until the NFL has a new labor deal.

A trade isn’t likely considering the rest of the NFL knows the Titans aren’t keeping Young for 2011, and Young’s contract has him due $8.5 million in salary for this season.

Young said he felt he and Fisher had a great relationship but didn’t get along with different personalities. He told a reporter Jan. 5 that Fisher could have trusted him more. Asked about that, Young said he could have used better words. He said their chemistry should have been better for the rest of the team.

“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.

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

“It’s a business decision he had to make for his organization, which I’m OK with, and I think it’ll be the best for both of us. Me starting off fresh, getting a chance to play for someone else. To be a starting quarterback, that’s what my focus is on right now,” Young said.



I don't know about you guys, but I wouldn't mind seeing Vince Young in Carolina(if the Titans release him on Feb. 7th) with a new attitude, a fresh start, and a deep desire to prove his haters wrong. There's no doubt he can outplay any QB we got on the team by a damn mile and the guy is still fairly young(27). Is he Elite? No. But he is definitely an explosive QB at times that may just need a fresh start and a young team to gel with.

Sh!t, imagine snagging Young and taking A.J. Green with the first overall. Let those 2 develop some chemistry together on and off the field and your talking about a seriously deadly QB/WR combo right there! Not to mention it'd probably cool Smitty off to have a decent QB throwing him balls again.

Anyways, I know it'd be a pretty big gamble (hell, what in the NFL isn't???) but I hope JR, Hurney, Rivera, and Chud will at least consider the offensive possibilities that the aforementioned scenario would create. If they don't, then f*ck ittttttt!!!!

We've already had a Kerry Collins walk out on the Panthers organization.
We don't need another quitter.

I don't really want him to be honest, seems like there are too many character questions about him. If he was to come out real strong in an interview and the FO picked him up I'd support him but I just don't see that happening. He's looking for a place to make his long-term home, too, and I don't know we are after that from FAs. I do not think they will be trying to get a franchise QB in FA. Could be wrong though.

IMHO, Matt Moore is the starter going into next year.
The worst possible thing that could of happened to Clausen (besides a big injury) happened to him last year. He was thrown to the wolves. His ego has to be damaged. If I hear another one of these wanna be yankees from Ohio/Indiana who are ND fans tell me how freaking good this guy is gonna be ...they are fixin to get a knuckle sandwich.


Look, clausen sucks. He needs to sit on the bench, hold the clip board and soak it in. Something he wasn't allowed to do this season.

VY is a head case, but sometimes a change of scenery can do a guy some good. He has proven he can win (win big games too) in the NFL and he deserves a second chance. I would love to see him wear #10 for us next year.

I can respect all that, but damn if he just fell in our hands, he could be a good fit for our young team (especially if we take Green #1 overall). He was on track to have his best year this season but only appeared in nine games(10 TD's 3 picks). Anyways I just got off of a 12 hour shift, so I'm probably just delirious. Carry on.

I dont know about Vince. Im the type of guy that will stick up for most of these players, and I believe in 2nd chances, but I dont know if he's ever gonna get "it". I was looking at the other Vince thread, and I agree with another poster in there that says he still seems very immature.
I'd give him a shot. Sign him to a 1-2 year deal, and see how he responds. He could finally get it, and be worth the risk. I feel the same about Haynesworth.

He deserves a chance. I'm sure we've all had stressful moments maybe not psyche ward worthy but still pretty serious.

That doesn't mean anybody should pick him up though. It means he shouldn't be heavily penalized for it.

What about anything we've done in the past suggests we would have any interest in a player like VY?

Vince Young is fools gold. You cannot be a QB in the NFL if your teammates have no respect for you....and no one has any respect for this guy. I'm fairly certain my wife's cat is more intelligent than he is.

Oh, and mentally unstable. Thats a good QB trait.

This team isn't about the past, it's about the future, hence the "youth movement" and new coaching staff.

Vince Young won a games at Tennessee but I just don't see him being a championship level QB. I don't think the maturity is there...even though people were saying the same thing about Mike Vick before he exploded for the Eagles. If we could get him cheap and we paired him with a guy like Vincent Jackson via FA or AJ Green via the draft then I'd be for it. If all we are going to do is sign Young and then not surround him with any receiver talent then I'd rather just start completely over with a rookie. Either way...I don't see Jimmy Clausen or Matt Moore as the future of this franchise.
