    VY is a young QB who needs work, especially with guys like Eric Moulds. He's not a seasoned vet yet. Neither are most of the receivers he's going to be throwing to, or a couple of the running backs he'll be handing off to.

    And to Chris Henry 29....I'm not taking this as some big thing. I'm just not brushing it off -- it is what it is. He made a mistake, he paid for it, now I hope he goes out and gets some really good work the next three preseason games so he can go into Jacksonville (who confounded him TWICE last season) ready to go.

    As long as he doesn't repeat this kind of mistake, nobody is going to care about it in a couple of weeks. Or even sooner.

    Whats the big deal????

    So vince young broke a rule and sat out 1 preseason game, so why are they talkin about it so much on espn and stuff. I dont understand, vince has been a good citizen and has never done nothin crazy and is a straight forward leader. He sat out one preseason game and you would think he just robbed somebody lol. Seriously, why when a black athlete does somethin he gets so much coverage and people try to drag his name through the mud??

    Sometimes they talk about nothing, because there isn't much to talk about. The media likes to make stories, even if they aren't particularly accurate.

    I just dont understand, its almost like they want to find somethin negative about vince. Its a preseason game lol. Yeah vince needs to follow rules, but i dont see why it should even be a discussion 2 days later.

  5. Like I said the media hates the Titans. We can have a top 10 defense and people still go back to the fact, that pac-man is suspened. We can win the super bowl and people still say it was just VY and he has nobody around him. blah blah blah. Let them say what they want.

    NO kidding.. Vince isn't going to come in rusty from missing three series of play in a pre-season game anyway. VY broke the rules. The diference between him and other guys on the team, who's name will remain anonymous (rymes with CrackMan), is that he will learn from this and try to get better. It's a positive move and although it sucked for us as fans will prolly pan out for the best in the long run. Vince has to know he's not above the law but let's face it.... If this was week two against Indy, you can bet your ars he wouldn't be sitting for breaking curfew. Good to get it over with early.

    True true, i have noticed we get more hate than deserved. I mean one dude today said were a team who dont have a chance and we have alot to worry about. And with pacman we were ranked last/32nd, and i dont think our defence is worse than last year, and we sure arent worse than last year considerin there are only 32 teams and you can get worse than that. finnegan will fill pacmans shoes more than people know.

    Vince wasn't the only one that missed curfew. He was singled out by Fisher to prove a point.

    I get that vibe from reading Vince's quotes from this evening coupled with what I posted earlier.

    Vince:"I broke the rules, I can’t play. You have to go by the rules,’’ Young said. “It happens, I was the one that got singled out and being one of the leaders I can’t do that.

    “But at the same time I guess (Fisher) got his message across to the rest of the team and now we are moving on and getting ready for the next team.’’

    The ones not upset about VY sitting obviously did NOT attend the game. That was the worst game I have ever been too.

    kerryfreakincollins is worse than dave Kreig at the end, and Kreig was terrible.

    At the least I expect to see the true first teamers play for a quarter or so before they all grab towels and attempt to be cheerleaders.

    The game did not suck because VY sat, but sitting VY robbed me of even seeing the best player on the team
