Doesn’t Young deserve a chance?
Former Horns QB would do better than Arizona’s awful duo. Tom Brady throws for 296 yards, four scoring passes to hand Texans their second loss.
you’re telling me that John Skelton and Ryan Lindley are playing in the NFL, and Vince Young can’t even get a tryout?
If you watched two minutes of Seattle’s 58-0 annihilation of the Arizona Cardinals on Sunday, it quickly became apparent that the most famous unemployed Texas ex deserves a chance to play in this league.
Arizona quarterbacks Skelton and Lindley combined to complete 19 of 39 passes for 133 yards with four interceptions and two fumbles in the worst performance this league has seen in years. Or at least since last week, when the Cards racked up 137 yards of offense in a 7-6 loss to the New York Jets.
Apparently, I wasn’t the only one who noticed.
Young reportedly tweeted Cardinals star Larry Fitzgerald, saying, “You know I can help tell coach.”
The coach is Ken Whisenhunt, who had the team within seconds of upsetting Pittsburgh in the Super Bowl four years ago. It wouldn’t kill the Cardinals’ morale if he brought in Young, who has actually enjoyed some success in this league, despite his welldocumented problems with Jeff Fisher in Tennessee. If guys like Skelton and Lindley play, why can’t a quarterback who went 31-19 as a starter and played in two Pro Bowls even get a sniff?
Shoot, Mark Sanchez has a job. Why not VY? Can
you remember the last time the Dallas Cowboys showed this type of heart? On the heels of one teammate losing his life in an incident in which another faces charges, Dallas went to Cincinnati and pulled out an unlikely 20-19 win over the favored Bengals.
Football is a very small part of our world, but those were real emotions displayed by players like Kevin Hatcher and defensive back Brandon Carr, a former Kansas City Chief who found out about teammate Jerry Brown’s death and the jailing of teammate Josh Brent after attending the funeral of Kasandra Perkins,
By Howard Ulman FOXBOROUGH, MaSS. — Tom Brady threw four touchdown passes as the New England Patriots turned their muchhyped game against Houston into a mismatch, beating the Texans 42-14 in a matchup of division leaders on Monday night.
The Texans (11-2) entered with the NFL’s best record.
But New England (10-3), with plenty of big-game experience with five Super Bowl appearances and three championships in the past 11 seasons, confused and dominated the Texans, who reached the playoffs last season for the first time since joining the NFL in 2002.
Taking advantage of disorganization and poor coverage by the Texans, Brady threw scoring passes on his first three possessions — 7 yards to Aaron Hernandez, 37 yards to Brandon Lloyd and 4 yards to Hernandez, for a 21-0 lead four minutes into the second quarter.
The Texans tried to whittle the deficit at halftime by going for it twice on fourth down in
Vince Young is worthy of a job with an NFL team — he’s 31-19 as a starting quarterback and has played in two Pro Bowls.
