Titans quarterback Vince Young is sacked by Giants linebacker Reggie Torbor and other defenders in the first quarter. Young came back in the fourth quarter to score three TDs.

Adam “Pacman” Jones jumped up and down, waving his arms, encouraging the fans who stuck around to stand and cheer their Tennessee Titans.
He and Vince Young made it worth their while, too, delivering the biggest fourth-quarter comeback in franchise history with a stunning rally.
The Titans cornerback intercepted two passes and had a 23-yard punt return that revived his teammates in the fourth quarter. Then rookie quarterback Young finished off an improbable charge from a 21-point deficit to a 24-21 win over the New York Giants on Sunday.

“Wow,” Titans coach Jeff Fisher said when it finally ended.

Young ran for a touchdown and threw for two more in the final 9:35 and finished with a career-high 249 yards passing. Rob Bironas kicked a 49-yard field goal with 6 seconds left to win it.

The final minutes felt like a flashback to the national championship game last January when Young led his Texas Longhorns past Southern California. It’s the biggest fourth-quarter comeback by a rookie quarterback ever, topping John Elway’s 19-point rally with Denver on Dec. 11, 1983 against Indianapolis for a 21-19 victory, according to Elias Sports Bureau.

“The legend of Vince Young began a long time ago,” said Titans receiver Brandon Jones, who caught the TD pass that tied the game.

several things happened in that game that gave me the impression that the giants were paid off to lose, or atleast keep it close.

Young forces a few throws here and there, but a couple weeks ago on NFL live they were showing how he moves the defense with his eyes and doesnt play like a rookie at all.

He is so poised, personally I wanted him to stay in school one more year but he is doing pretty well. He has the heart of a champion and never gives up.

I remember all the people here who doubted Young before he was drafted. they said he's dumb, runs too much, etc. I don't think he runs too much, when everything breaks down you should run if you have his speed.

This is a great quote from his WR


WR BRANDON JONES

(on how composed Titans QB Vince Young was in the huddle being down 21-0)

He was cool like it was it was a regular day. He was like ‘If you guys don’t want to play then you need to get out of the huddle’

This is Vince's press conference transcript (its after Jeff Fisher's)

This game was amazing. Vince Young looked like a 10 year veteran. Congratulations to him and the Titans.

I bet Giant's fans wish they could have chosen someone else with the # 1 pick if they were to do it all over again. Opie Manning isn't Ryan Leaf, but he is far from the QB Peyton is.
