    Well with the way we've been going with injuries he'll probably get a compound fracture of the skull just trying to put on his helmet in his first week of practice.

    I wonder if he makes the team if he would be used in a Tebag type situation.
    A QB trick running play.

    C'mon, Oskosh. ;)

    It was his dad who complained and splashed it in the press.

    Vince could run the wishbone with Lacy and Franklin.

    I really don't expect anything to come from this other than some media.
    He's a great runner, but a terrible passer.
    He's a faster version of Tebow, but believe it or not, worse passer..... wait, that can't be. Same passer, just less of a leader than Tebow. And not as strong physically as Tebow. But faster.

    Guess you have not seen how much p*ssing and moaning this kid has done, much less his parents getting involved when he does take a hit. ALL Qb's get hit, ALL Qb's get hit hard at one point or another.......GET USED TO IT. And Arod does NOT complain like McCoy, get real.

    If his parents get involved, I don't see how that's falls on him. He's a grown man he can speak for himself.

    Just like Greg Jenning's sister doesn't represent him. But I doubt you faulted him for any of those incidents.

    All QB's get hit and best believe all QB's complain about it. Including ours. Degrees of it vary but they all do.

    And once again I don't know how much production you can expect out of a QB that has no receivers.

    Agreed...and I was calling for TT to bring in Tebow before Belichik got him. As we've seen now, there's no media circus up in NE. It lasted for a few days until the media realized that there was no more fun in the reporting. I would've rather had Tebow's leadership and inspiration in our locker room than Young's.

    A QB can help make a WR better, just like a WR can help a QB.......McCoy has and always will be crap. The production he wants and is willing to produce is all up to him.....you get back what you put in, and it looks like he does not put much effort in since he is now a back up....

    well - considering from what I see out of Harrell and Coleman, I think Young has a great chance to be the back up.

    I wish I could give you more thumbs up for that one.

    There is just something I like about this guy.
    Maybe because he's getting a second chance and it's with my favorite pro team.
    And he looked good in their first pre-season.
    I hope he makes it.

    Not sure whether Young will stick, but watching his Longhorns take down USC in the 2005 Rose Bowl/BCS National Championship was special. Matt Leinart and Reggie Bush headlined that Trojans team and the program was dirty as hell at that point...

    The guy I keep thinking of when we got Young was Tim Couch and I think that is a fair comparison.

    Thinking of that, you know it would be pretty entertaining if the game versus the St. Louis Rams if McCarthy has Rodgers and Young go into the Pistol formation with Young behind Rodgers just to play with that idea. I know it stupid yet I find it an intriguing possibility.
