Exactly. Then maybe go for Victor Abiamiri 2nd round, Ryan Harris in the 3rd round, Darius Walker in the 4th,MAYBE get Dan Santucci in th 5th, Rhema Mcknight in the 6th (Rhema will get Vince to another probowl), and end up with project TE Marcus Freeman in the 7th. Hopefully Nedu Ndukwe will go underdrafted so the Titans can sign him after the draft is over. :-°

But yeah Vince Young did have a good year I just don't think he was a great canidate for protecting Madden from the Curse. They're alot of other guys who been solid for alot of years that i think deserve the spot.

Vince Young will not be on any of my dynasty teams this year.

There's the curse, of course, and there's also the fact that he's wildly overrated. I would definitely NOT rank him in the top 10 QBs, but I've seen him taken as early as 4th QB in mock drafts.

Consider he probably would not have been ROY if that Giants Dlineman doesn't let go of him...that gave him the big highlight and big win that really put him in the spotlight.

Leinart had far better passing numbers, the Saints probably don't even make the playoffs if Colston doesn't have the year he had, and MJD had 16 freakin' TDS!!!! Throw in Bush, Maroney, and Hester, and you have to wonder if Young is even a top 5 rookie if the Titans don't miraculously win 8 games.

I think he'll be good for the Titans, but I think he's hugely over-hyped both as a fantasy and NFL QB. And now, with the curse...it's all over...

Poor guy.

Curse Strategy

I think the manufacturer finally took the Madden Curse seriously and put someone on the cover who nobody would miss ...

Ray was just on it a couple years ago and he got injured and missed most of the season... ;-7

Maybe the EA Sports guys intentionally pick people they think will have a bad year and stick them on the cover, not the other way around.

I was never really a believer of the curst until last year with Alexander.

Young tears his ACL week 2.
A win next week and all is forgotten.

Maybe putting a rookie on the cover will break the cursed curse...

yes, cuz rookies are infallible ... hehe... i think they picked him cuz we don't have much to base a bad year on... if he doesn't get injured... anything he does could be considered growing pains or just the way vince plays
