Vince Young believes he's an elite QB

V. Young (US Presswire)
Vince Young sat down with ESPN’s Marcellus Wiley to do his first major television interview since being told that he would be dumped by Bud Adams and the Tennessee Titans. (The move can’t technically happen for a few more weeks.) Young was asked if he could join an NFL team as a backup. 

"I'm going to go into the organization, the team, and compete. That's all I can do, and let them make their own decision after that," Young said. "Definitely I am a starting quarterback, an elite quarterback in the NFL. I want to go ahead and start. But like it always is, the coaches have the last word."

Young admitted that he and Fisher did not have jiving personalities, but he backed off his original accusations that the head coach didn’t always trust him.

"It goes back to communication,” Young said. “Our chemistry should've been a little bit better ... That's why the season kind of finished like it was.”

Young also talked about Adams’ decision to cut ties. "It's a business decision he had to make for his organization, which I'm OK with, and I think it'll be the best for both of us,” he said.

Vince Young believes he's an elite QB

   VY thinks he is an elite QB -  that's laughable.  He has a great arm but they are a dime a dozen. He can run, and that is the one aspect I feel he excels at. He does not have the football IQ needed to assess defenses - find the mismatches - and deliver the ball accurately - all in a matter of a few seconds - with DL pressure.
   He just doesn't have the football intelligence.

Vince Young believes he's an elite QB

I'm not saying that Vince is what you call an "elite" quarterback by any means, but the fact of the matter is that he is a nightmare for opposing coaches and simply wins football games regardless of things like passing stats or conventional throwing motion.

If I was to post a thread on here asking if everyone thought the Titans have been an "elite" team the last few years almost everyone would rightly say "no" (besides the 13-3 season).  With a non-elite team, Vince has been able to produce a 30-17 record as a starter in this league and that is pretty impressive especially considering that the Titans drafted him 3rd overall meaning they were the third worst team in the league at the time and he started as a rookie...

I understand the guy has serious attitude and ego problems but by no means is he a bad quarterback, I think with the right situation he could again flourish in this league and honestly maybe getting cut from a team that did everything in their power to support him and build around him will be just the wake-up call he needs to man-up and quit his selfish ways. 

I guess only time will tell... and yes, I have been wrong defending this guy in the past.

He's very rarely given the opportunity to throw. Be fair.

Vince Young believes he's an elite QB

He needs to work harder and he coud be a top 10 QB, just like Vick did.

Joe Namath had a CAREER 50% completion percentage and 173 TD to 220 INTs and he's in the HALL OF FAME!  Vince Young is better than that RIGHT NOW.  It's not even close.

Vince Young believes he's an elite QB

3,000 to 3,300 yards and 17-19 tds is not an elite QB. He very rarely throws for 300 yds.  Not many other responders are agreeing with you.  He was a great college QB because he didn't have to throw average NFL QB.

Vince Young believes he's an elite QB

OK Mrs Young, you can tell Vinny that he is an elite QB.  Everyone is special in their own way.

When did the NFL turn into pee-wee soccer.  Everyone is elite, there are no winers, just some teams get to play longer than others.
