NFL Rookie Year of Vince Young

I was excited to see Vince Young play in the NFL. It looks like his critics were totally right: he can't succeed as an NFL quarterback: he wasn't fast enough to evade NFL defenders, and his arm wasn't good enough to win NFL games. So let's look at his sad rookie report card:
  • gained the starting QB position for the Titans
  • led an 8 of 10 game winning stretch
  • led the largest fourth-quarter comeback in the Titans franchise history, the largest fourth-quarter comeback by a rookie quarterback, and the largest comeback with under ten minutes left in a game in NFL history (11/26/06 vs Giants)
  • beat the NFL Super Bowl Champion Indianapolis Colts once, and very nearly twice
  • first rookie quarterback to rush for more than 500 yards (552) in the Super Bowl era
  • won the NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year (overwhelmingly--23 votes to 9 vote second place)
  • first rookie QB in the Pro Bowl--ever
Awful, Vince. Better hit the weights extra hard this preseason, or you'll get cut. Here's what he had to say at the Pro Bowl:
"I learned something every day. I'm just looking forward to playing in the game and having one more great experience to finish the year."
Spoken like a true loser. (See failure below)
