View Full Version : Don't mess with success

Since leading Texas to victory over USC in the Rose Bowl for the national championship, Vince Young has been deconstructed more than the Zapruder film.

The quarterback's intelligence has been questioned. (I considered the Wonderlic test irrelevant after learning that Ryan Leaf scored 27 and Dan Marino 15.) Young's choice of an agent has brought scrutiny -- he picked a family friend who is a lawyer. And, of course, there's his throwing motion.

Sure, Young should be put under the microscope just like every other top prospect poised to land a lucrative contract. But the topic of his throwing motion has been overblown.

Instead of the conventional, over-the-top form, Young has a quirky release that fluctuates between three quarters and sidearm. At times it seems as though Young is trying to fling bird droppings off his right hand.

I would still take Leinart and Cutler before Young.....WHY?????, because Young is not a pocket passer and we all know how running qb's like Vick lose more games than they win.
