Some people assumed once Jeff Fisher was fired that maybe, just maybe, Vince Young could be back with the Titans in 2011. That isn’t happening as it appears the disgust with Young went way beyond just Jeff Fisher.
I don’t know if it is a smear campaign or Young’s attitude was this poor. Whatever you want to believe the Titans are killing their trade leverage by continually trashing him like this.
Titans G.M. Mike Reinfeldt confirmed multiple reports that the team still plans to trade or release Young this offseason.
The disappointment with Young within the Titans organization went beyond Fisher. Players and front office members reportedly felt let down by the quarterback. NFL Network’s Michael Lombardi said this week that Young’s lack of work ethic is “legendary” around the team.
With situations like this, I always assume that the truth is somewhere in the middle. Everyone acknowledges that Young is immature and his work ethic, to be an elite quarterback in the NFL isn’t where it needs to be, but according to the Titans he is sitting around eating bon bons watching The View and then just shows up for the game.
We will see who is right when Young gets to his new team.
