Discussion in 'NFL Draft' started by Puck, Jan 4, 2006.
Hey, I was surprised too. :ha
man i fell outta my chair.
That's not a stretch.:hmm:
Ya know, on the big board now, Vince Young goes ahead of Leinart. I was worried about his throwing, but after having seen it, it ain't bad. He's got a low release, but not quite sidearm (most of the time). His thing is he feels big, so he's trying to fit his passes into the throwing lanes. He also uses wrist on some of his throws. Don't know why TitanPride is so bent over him (really wanted USC to win, eh?) - I'm impressed. Also, on arm strength: can you guys see how much bigger he can get? Not really worried about taking him on a one to two year NFL learning curve. He's got a frame to fill out. 75% accuracy? Get out. By the time he's NFL ready he'll be able to throw 60 yards on one knee. Well, you get my point.
And seriously, if we ended up with Leinart, 29-40 is still over 70%. I'd take him, too, but after last night, YOUNG IS DA MAN! 75% completion, threw for 267 but 200 yards RUSHING, 3 TDS? To borrow from Critical Theory: "Young was out there beastin' fools!"
That has to be one of the greatest college games of all-time, and as the media is saying, the greatest single player performance in NCAA history. Even Pete Carroll had to reluctantly agree with that.
Finally, Young's decision-making, even as a junior, was clearly better than Leinart's last night. I definitely want him with our first pick.
STAY DOWN, NEW ORLEANS! STAY DOWN!
I honestly don't know what you are talking about. Most of young's passes were short over the middle and to the flat because USC was bringing everything they had on the blitz, safeties and conrers included. It was by design that USC wanted to blitz him and force him to make quick decisions. Well he made the right decisions and completed 75% of his passes. He took what the defense gave him and showed incredible poise. No happy feet, no panic. In the whole game he only made one bad decision that almost resulted in a pick. One bad pass out of 40!
Someone asked ronnie lott about young's readiness to play in the nfl. He rolled his eyes and asked if the person was kidding. Ask pete carroll about vince young.
Now titanpride, you were not one of those on the other thread who said that young was just a straight line runner were you? He only made about 50 tacklers miss last night.
Young is the same caliber propect that steve mcnair was in 1995. The only problem now is that he will still be available when we pick third. If not we can draft lienart instead. Not a bad situation to be in.
yeah Roll, one thing I noticed is that Vince looked confident and poised (something you normally hear about Matt). I didn't see him look flustered or panicked
I agree with all of you, Vince Young need to be headed with his daddy Steve McNair and to the Tennessee Titans...he is a monster as a QB.
Thumbs up to the:
"With the 3rd pick in the 2006 NFL Draft, the Tennessee Titans select, Vince Young from Texas"
Floyd Reese get that guy
Agreed Roll, Puck. That's exactly how you "take what the defense gives you." One bad pass out of 40! He outperformed Leinart last night, pass for pass. That says a lot.
Oh God without a doubt he is their is a new Superman
After the Rose Bowl, I realized we NEED Young.
