I had to share this. IMO, If he arm catches up.... he could change the game as we know it.

The link did not work, but I think I can guess what the subject matter was. In my opinion Vince Young is a poor man's version of Mike Vick, and we all know what that means fantasy-wise...not much. He's a great NCAA talent, but I don't believe he'll ever be a top-shelf NFL QB. Just an opinion.

Well, I think if someone entered the address or went to that site then they could find it. It is worth the trouble. Young is not a poor man's anything IMO.... The problem with Vick and Young is that NFL teams will try and make them a pocket passer and that is not what they are. They should use their mobility and if they get hurt then so be it. But what is the point of having someone so mobile if you don't set up plays to use their talent? Respect Pig, smell ya later.

The link itself doesn't work, but if you copy and paste the whole thing it does. The code for the forum does not like the parentheses around the part at the end and cuts off the URL too early. :-)

I understand what you are saying, but I don't think that what you suggest reflects the reality of the NFL. I think that the reason players like Vince Young, Mike Vick, Scott Frost or other running QBs succeed in the NCAA so wildly is because they are usually the fastest player on the field. Once they get to the NFL, they find that not to be the case at all. Your average LB in the NFL clocks in at around 4.5 or so, plenty fast enough to at least keep up with some of the fastest running QBs in the league.

On top of that, QBs that run are highly succeptible to injuries. Every player on the defensive side of the ball is an effective tackler, much different from the NCAA.

Put it to you this way. In the NCAA there are about 7200 Div-1 players. Of that group, a little more than 200 will be drafted, and a little less than 200 will actually make an NFL roster. So spread that out over the entire NCAA and you are talking about an average of approximately 1-2 NFL-caliber players per NCAA team. That explains the success of running QBs in the NCAA. In today's NFL, you truly can't design an offense with a running QB. That's why you don't see teams running a Wishbone or anything like that. Plain and simple - defenses are too fast.

Anyway all this is not a slight on Vince Young. I think he's going to have an incredible season and should be a treat to watch. I just don't think he's going to be a great NFL QB.

Just based on last years passing ability Vince Young would be better served as a WR in the NFL. He's still got a few years to improve his passing game and I think he'll be a nice NFL QB although not as good as Vick. He's a great college player though....

The guy can barely hit the broadside of a barn.

Perhaps Texas isn't coaching him to throw correctly which is a definate possiblity since there coaching is horrid.

I am sure if he has a good year he will be drafted.

He's had one good game during his career and that is the Rose Bowl against a horrible Michigan defense. Wolfpig explained everything in his most recent post.
