Captain Crunched

September 25, 2007

Is anyone else a little disturbed by the fact that Vince Young was voted in as the Titans’ offensive captain? Seriously? Sure they didn’t have many options, but they certainly could have gone with a solid veteran, like Center Kevin Mawae. Last week Young cost his team with his immature taunting penalty.

This week against the Saints he left the field with a minute to play in the first half. The Titans had the ball with a chance to tack on a field goal. Where’s Vince? Oh, his wrist hurts. Oh, he’s getting an IV. Give me a break. If Vince Young is the bold field general pundits say he is then he should be on the field in that situation. Instead he’s in the locker room getting pampered by the trainers.

This just in: Jags fans can take a deep sigh of relief tonight as Drew Brees and company fall to 0-3. Ladies and gentlemen, your Los Angeles Saints.

SI ranks the all time "Impact Rookies of the NFL"

Really strange list. Vince Young is featured despite his team failing to make the playoffs. I love when the media throws out the line “Numbers don’t properly reflect his impact on the game.” Yeah, the guy made some big plays with his feet, but you can’t ignore the fact that he threw more picks than touchdowns, and fumbled 12 times. As Merrill Hoge recently pointed out, Travis Henry was the real difference maker on the Titans in 2006.

I guess I wouldn’t argue Young’s place on this list if they had bothered to include Joseph Addai. He had over 1000 yards rushing in the regular season (averaging 4.5 yds per carry), he racked up 22 receptions in the playoffs alone (leading the field), and most importantly Addai was arguably the deciding factor in a championship run.
