Drafting VY was sheer genius

HOUSTON - It's no great revelation that Vince Young is making Jeff Fisher a better coach. Full Story

I'm from Houston and I couldn't believe that the Texans passed on Vince. He is a winner and you could just tell. Too bad Kubiak was so short sighted, guess it's a good thing for the Titans fans....me included.

V/Y may someday develop into a great QB. Right now he is a rookie that hasn't accomplished anything yet. Once their is enough game film on him, teams will begin putting game plans in to stop him. He needs to show that he can adjust his game and counter. The elite quarterbacks do this well (Peyton, Drew, Tom...) The average quarterbacks don't (Mike V. for example).

For those of you who doubt Mario W., have faith. It takes two to three years for a defensive lineman to develop. Look at the great defensive lineman in the league and take a quick look at their first year stats. You'll see that they're not all that good. Mario wasn't a bad pick. What they could have done was trade down a few picks to pick up a couple other draft picks. They would have got Mario at the four or five spot.

Vince Yong will outshine any of the quarterbacks you have mentioned. It is impossibe to come up with a game plan to stop vince Young because he is a great improvisor like jazz musicians. whereas these other gus are like symphonic musicians following A score; that's the kind of thing that a coach can plan for. Like all great improvisers Vince makes decisions on the spot. How can you plan for a guy like that. As for Michel Vick, let him get a line that can pass block and it's lights out for every team that plays Atlanta. The resaon that Michel Vick has 1,000 yards rushing is because he had to scramble to keep from being sacked. Check out the film lame brain! If it had been any of those immobile quarterbacks like Peyton, Drew or tom these plays would have gone down as sacks or penalties for grounding the ball, not rushing yards. If you can't see this you shouldn't even be in this conversation because it's clearly over your head!

The three other quarterbacks are in the playoffs, Vince isn't. By the way, did you watch the game this past weekend? Vince looked like a street musician having trouble making a few dollars. Have fun in the off-season playing music. I'll be watching my team play football.

Peyton, Drew, and Tom are all great QB's, but this VY guy is the truth, you might not believe it now, but just wait another year or two.

What I saw this season, actually 12 games, was a QB (VY) well on his way to revolutionizing the position and the game. People have been in absolute fear (or awe) of VY ever since he single handedly crushed Matt and Reggie in the Rose Bowl last year. He brought his team to the brink of the playoffs (0-4 before he started) with a mediocre offense and a defense ranked last. When he has some real weapons on offense and the $40 mil in cap space is spent, we'll see you in the Super Bowl. Then, Merryl Hodge and all the rest of the haters can go wonderlic themselves!

You've got to admit, Tom Brady and the Patriots did a bang up job coming up with and executing today's game plan! Another week of football for Patriots Fans!!

San Diego's a pretty good team, maybe the best this year, but I think the PATS will find a way to exploit the rookie (Rivers). He hasn't been playing very well lately.
