Vince Young Throws Shoulder Pads at Fans..Fisher Benches Him Permanently

There have been whispers all year about Vince Young’s attitude and work ethic.

I have been cautious to report on it, because there was never anything concrete and when he was healthy he played better than average.

It does appear there was some fire behind that smoke.

There was an incident after the game with the fans and coach Jeff Fisher.  Which has caused Fisher to bench him regardless of injury.  Here are the details:

Fisher said that Young has lost his job and that there are some things that have to be worked through. Fisher said he was told Young threw his shoulder pads and jersey into the stands before leaving the field and that Young said something to him after the game that will be kept private.

Young, whose third-quarter departure was cheered by the Titans fans on hand, dressed quickly and rapidly walked from the locker room and out of LP Field before speaking with the media.

The thing that is curious is Vince might be out for the year with an injury anyway, so Fisher didn’t have to say this, but he made sure he was loud and clear Young was no longer the starter.

This isn’t a physical thing with Vince Young, He has the tools to be a good quarterback in the NFL, this has to do with what is going on inside the head of Vince Young.

I think he has been coddled for so long, he doesn’t know how to handle adversity.

Also his work ethic and dedication to his craft has always been in questioned, he doesn’t seem to get being a franchise quarterback has more to do than what goes on during the game on Sunday.

I believe the Titans have protected him and kept a lot of things hidden from the media, but now Jeff Fisher feels like it is time to pull the plug.

It is my belief Young needs to be with a different team in 2011, something about him and the Titans just aren’t mixing.

*UPDATE*

According to Jim Wyatt as Vince Young stormed out of the locker room here is what he had to say to Jeff Fisher who accused him of running out on his teammates.

“I’m not running out on teammates, I’m running out on you”

If Fisher is the head coach of the Titans next year, Vince Young won’t be the quarterback.

*UPDATE 2*

Vince decided to take his thoughts to twitter.

First off throwing out the “God” shield is weak and shows his immaturity.

Instead of saying sorry to his teammates on twitter how about saying it to their face as oppose to running out of the locker room like a girl who just found out there was no more Twilight movies.

Point is his time in Tennessee is over, he needs a fresh start somewhere else.

    Vince young should retire immediately ,no one is gonno pick him up if the titans cut him,this guy has a fragile mind,he a cry baby for real.

  2. Frank Smith says:

    Vince Young needs to be with a team and coaching staff that can develop him as a QB, similar to what Reid has done for Vick in Philly. Of course that also means a complete attitude change from Young's end, which won't happen until he gets cut or traded.

  3. @bohnlein says:

    Andy Reid didn't develop Michael Vick – Michael Vick was a solid quarterback before, when he admittedly didn't even try. Vick had all the tools to be a great quarterback.

    Young needs to grow up and learn that not everyone is going to like him and when he plays bad, don't wave your arms up and down for the boos at your home field to get louder.

    • Frank Smith says:

      Mike Vick was hardly a "solid" QB even though he wasn't trash either. But I stand by what I said about Andy Reid. He coached him up and combined with the attitude change, Vick finally looks like a polished NFL QB. If that isn't development, then I don't what is.

      Young needs to be humbled and I think that will happen when he's cut after this year and realizes that no one will be knocking down his door to sign him.

    FIRE JEFF FISHER. YOUNG HAS NO CONFIDENCE BECAUSE HIS COACH IS A FAGGOT

  5. ddc says:

    fisher messed with this dude so much he doesnt and shouldnt want to be there. why is fisher still there? what he ever won? i wish young was more like T.O. and spoke his mind.

  6. Damon says:

    well id probably be emotional if I had no job security even though I'm the best QB in town. U don't find it funny that Fisher is so quick to pull him at the least sign of trouble? And pulling him has lost more games for the Titans than they have won.

    He has two bad series, he gets pulled. Plus, he just said "God is great." Media overreaction.

  7. KM1 says:

    You can't blame Jeff Fisher for the Vince Young's blunders. The guy has some serious issues, and Fisher has been trying to 'fix' him for some time now. Young's career should have ended with college.

  8. mack from afar says:

    HERE'S WHAT I SEE FROM AFAR, ,,,,

    A HEISMAN TROPHY RUNNER-UP

    A COLLEGE NATIONAL CHAMPION

    A PRO ROOKIE WHO WON 85% OF HIS GAMES WITH A 12YR PRO AS HIS BACKUP

    A COACH WHO BENCHED HIS ROOKIE QB WHO SAVED HIS JOB

    A FRANCHISE THAT HASN'T PAYED ITS 2000 YARD RUSHER

    VERY FICKLE FAIR WEATHER FANS WHO ARE RACE BAITING

    AND YET ANOTHER BONE HEADED MOVE BY A HEAD-COACH WHO RUNS
    HIS TEAM LIKE A PAWN. OBVIOUSLY THE OWNER IS RUNNING THIS TEAM

    IF YOU FOLKS IN TENNESSEE THINK VINCE IS OVER-RATED , A BABY A WHINER
    SOMEONE WHO CAN'T HANDLE ADVERSITY( SUICIDE RUMORS-GIMME A BREAK-HE'S FROM HOUSTON FOR CRYING OUT LOUD)

    THEN PLEASE KEEP BOOING HIM TREATING HIM LIKE CRAP RUINING HIS REPUTATION AND PACK HIM UP AND SHIP TO ARIZONA WHERE WE WILL
    LOVVVVVEEEEE TO HAVE A QUARTERBACK THAT CAN READ A BLITZ AND
    COVER THREEE ZONE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    AND I'M WAY OUT HERE AND CAN SEE THE BS HE'S PUTTING UP WITH AND I'M A USC FAN!

    If the Titans want to dump the 5th highest rated QB in the league, a guy who, for all the talk about he hasn't mature, his QB ratings (with the exception of the Kerry Collins year) has improved every single year to the point where he is now only behind Vick, Rivers, Rotherlesburger, and Brady. He has a 30-16 win loss record, AND 10TDs to 3INTs.

    Even Sunday he was 12-16 for 165 yards, 20 yards rushing…he hurt his thumb. Left the game, went got it taped, stayed warm on the sidelines and wanted to go back in. What exactly did he do wrong? Sure throwing his jersey is childish, but I rather have a player 1 who wants to help his team win and 2. who does actually help his team win.

    Fisher has jerked the guy around for years now. If the Titans want to dump the 5th rated QB and the fans want to chase a consistent winner out of town because he was pissed his coach (in a 3 point game) went with a 3rd string QB over him, half the teams in the league would love to have him

  10. Bijan says:

    Like i said, fisher is a FAGGOT. And yes ‘bud’ is running the team. Chris Johnson almost got cut cause he didn’t want to pay him for christ sake they’re the most unproffessional organisation in the nfl.

    I’m from Tennessee and live in Tennessee.

  11. Wow! This could be one of the most useful blogs we’ve ever come across on thesubject. Actually excellent article! I’m also an expert in this topic so I can understand your effort.

  12. You can certainly get the drift your mastery in the work you write. The mankind hopes after regular more vigorous writers like you who are not timorous to hint how they believe. In any case pee after your heart.
