    In fairness, Young is up against the same defense that made Donovan McNabb look awful last week. Since he's no McNabb, he's getting obliterated.

    1) his arm isn't weak.
    1) young doesn't have a weak arm.
    2) he will likely have a lot of games like this. he really has no business starting this season.
    3) the jags d is good, if at times inconsistent.
    4) he's helped the titans to two wins this season, and put a scare into the colts. he has a long way to go, but he's a work in progress.

    young deserves the same consideration that reggie bush and leinart get, because they also have been equally horrible this season.

    Wouldn't that be Antonio Gates? Or Alge Crumpler?

    If you think Vince Young has a strong arm, you probably think Tim Wakefield is a power pitcher. He short-arms everything, and leads the league in ground balls.
    Watch a game once in awhile.

    sounds like an accuracy-mechanics issue, to me. i've watched a lot of young. rip him for his reads, his accuracy and his mechanics. arm strength is not a problem. but based on your previous obsvervations of being wowed by a fifth-year player, i guess i can't expect you to know what you're talking about.

    I don't have any details since I can't see the game here, but when is Chuckie Gruden going to get canned? The Bucs are striving for a new level of suckitude.

    I'm far from being wowed by David Garrard. But in the same game as Vince Young, he's looking like Marino.
    Through three quarters, Young's QB rating is 9.7 (not a misprint). Garrard is 124.4.
    Vince Young sucks out loud. If he ever leads a team to the playoffs or makes all-pro, I'll gladly eat the words but this is looking like the worst draft pick since Sam Bowie instead of Michael Jordan.

    On a side note, how hard IS it to get into Heinz Field, anyways. All those heading to the North Side, leave your nail clippers and nerve gas at home.

    I hope I haven't d_b'ed.

    . . . and would there be such a big deal made if their names had been Hamilton Wentworth III and Chad Jones?

    or, while we're overreacting, is it reggie bush? so far against the bucs: 11 carries, minus-5 yards ...

    Why isn't Vick dominating the suckass Detroit Lions?
