Jeff Fisher poisoned the perception of Vince Young in the media, along with his "hit man" Merril Hoge, and among NFL coaches. He unfairly took his personal vendetta with the Titans owner out on Vince.

Vince is a WINNING and decent STARTING QB that is being black listed and not being given the chance he deserves.

Vince could easily be used to run READ-OPTION and the PISTOL offense. What's more, he has the trial by fire EXPERIENCE to make it work effectively.

There isn't any good reasons not to have Vince as the back up QB for several teams.

At the very least, you allow the man to fight for a spot. What is happening to Vince is ridiculous, unfair, and a travesty. Look at what some of these teams are using for backup QBs. It's crazy not to allow Vince to fight for the spot.

VY's IQ and career completion rate are about the same.

Vince Young has a 31-19 record as a STARTER in the NFL.

The Titans were convoluted mess, yet Vince was ROY and pushed his team to the playoffs. Even with Jeff Fisher trying to constantly stab the kid in the back.

Vince is one of the most clutch QBs in the present NFL and one of the greatest college QBs of all time.

Trying to character assassinate the guy with some BS on paper and seeing GAME footage of him are 2 different things. The man is a good Football player and should be allowed to play the game.

VY Career over 6 seasons, 46 TDs vs 51 INTs, 74.4 passer rating, guy's a backup.

The best season the Titans had in the VY era was when he went down in wk. 3 and Kerry Collins took over.

Numbers don't lie. I could edit GAME footage to make Mark Sanchez look brilliant.

In 2009, Kerry Collins led the Titans to 0-6. That's ZERO and six. The Titans were beaten by the Patriots, 59 to 0 (That's ZERO).

Jeff Fisher should have been outright fired for his madness of clinging to Kerry Collins.

Vince Young, from 0-6, led one of the greatest team comebacks of ALL TIME. To include saving the job of undeserving Jeff Fisher. The same coach that had and then later, continued to stab Vince in the back. The Titans climbed back to 8-8.

Had they allowed Vince Young to start earlier, they would have likely made the playoffs. But the problem is, Jeff Fisher should have been allowed to be fired for gross incompetence and a clear personal vendetta against the owner of the team and Vince Young.

Kerry Collins is also a career LOSING QB. 81-99. That's 99 losses.

You also forgot, in addition to Vince Young's 31-19 WINNING record as a starter (which is hard as hell to do in the NFL), that he is a MOBILE QB with 12 RUSHING touchdowns.

That's 46 + 12 rushing TDs = 58 touchdowns.

The major smudge on Vince's record comes his ROOKIE YEAR, when he was thrown into a trial by fire, by the Titans.

Vince Young was getting back stabbed and chances taken away from him since DAY 1. He was attacked for being Black by racist, told he would never win (see Merril Hoge videos), and having to battle his own coach.

Vince deserves a FAIR shot on a team as a PROVEN winning NFL QB.

Vince Young went BACK to college, by the way, and will graduate this year with his degree. For those attacking his intelligence, how many of you have your degree? How many would have went back to school?

And as far as FOOTBALL intelligence, Vince has that PLUS experience as a starter.

He is still physically in his prime, was best on 3rd down conversions, and the Pistol Read-Option offenses are tailor made for him.

It's past time to give Vince his chance and stop catering to all the BS that was created by Merril Hoge and Jeff Fisher against the man.

I'm only interested in Vince Young.The man deserves a chance.I think the Nfl is cautious to give VY a fair chance,because they know they will have to eat crow.The fact is Vince Young is a great quarter back who has been able to win under the most adverse situations.There are very few quarter backs who can win with zero support from his coach.
