    Several anylists have critisized The Titan's pick of Young, they pointed out several problems with Young's Dropback, Release, and Pocket presence, What do you think?

    These were the same guys who said he was so great after the Rose Bowl. Some of the nay-sayers said the same things about a young guy from Alcorn State, and that turned out alright...

    do a search on Vince Young here in the forums

    you will find page upon page of comments and opinion

    it's no secret that Vince played in a shotgun / option offense
    and that he has a weird throwing motion

    SO WHAT ?!?!?

    I just read where Chow and Fish are already scripting plays specifically for hi freakish abilites - I can't wait until Games 3&4 of the pre-season to see what he's all about at this level

    I agree that he's a project and a risk. I said as much over the last few months. But he also has easily the highest upside of any player in the draft. So I'll be an optimist...

    Pffft...he only won the Rose Bowl all by himself. How is he not ready? huh? Utter stupidity. I don't even think you have to bring him along slowly. He's too good. Where we are going, we won't have to read defenses.

    Are you joking PhiSlamma? I will be shocked if he plays after sitting just one year. The guy has a huge learning curve going from one read offensive system to the NFL. He is a total project, and one I hope will pan out. He does have a huge upside and I think he is worth the risk. I would look for him to follow the same pattern that Mcnair followed. Two years on the bench learning and then the job will be his. He will be brought along very slowly.

    McNair was considered a huge project too, and he didn't have the upside Young had IMO, which is scary to me. Young will take probably 2 years to take command of the starting spot I think, but it will be worth the wait.

    I can't see him sitting for 2 years. Maybe 1. You can't give a guy $20M up front and not have him play for 2 years.

    Anyway, with Volek likely starting, it's just a matter of time before Young has to come in and replace Billy after another injury...

    I was listening to ESPN today... and the thing that got me was them saying he can't read defenses... He ran a one read offense?...Simply lazy journalism, either they didn't watch film, or need their head examined..

    If he ran a one read offense, Pete Caroll must not be the Defensive Co-ordinator he was hyped to be. tOSU obviously had a weak D, right? Why couldn't they sniff out this oversimplistic offense, that scored more than any other NCAA team this year... where Vince ended up on the bench an equivelant of like 2.5 games because of blow-outs.

    go to www.jcdenton40.com, and judge for yourself. Vince made some great reads.
