    Re: How bout Vince Young or Michaels Vick

    I'm gonna have to politely disagree with the majority on this subject. I think if we can get him for cheap as another poster suggested I say why not let him at least compete for the starting job. Young still has the physical tools to be a Top Tier quarterback, he just needs to get his head out of his ass. Perhaps a change of scenery will do the trick? Need I remind you of this comeback drive against Arizona:

    I still say we should draft a QB, but Young could at least give us some depth going into Training Camp.

    Vick is out of the question. No way will the Eagles let him go now. Vince is a possibility, but the owner likes him. So both are probably out of the equation.

    Re: How bout Vince Young or Michaels Vick

    Vince has played well the past two years with qb rating around 90. He was on pace for over 20 tds and under 10 ints this year but his problems are obviously with maturity (the guy on the way out here wasn't exactly the model of maturity though, texting pictures of his wang though). I would be open to giving him a chance to compete for the starting job here if it were a one year prove it type contract.

    He doesn't look that good in this clip. Webb looks more poised.

    I still don't understand why everyone is so high on these too... neither are leaders on the field, neither look terribly poised in the pocket. Vick benefited from some extraordinary receiving this year, and it was joke in general that he was up for MVP. Throw in the fact that he's getting older, and probably only realistically has a handful of seasons left in the league I'd rather take my chances on a polished passer like Orton who would play well in our system with our receivers, while we develop Webb who has that speed burst that Vick has lost, the big arm, and the poise that both these QB's are lacking.

    What are you talking about? Extraordinary receiving? DeSean "i run 1 route" Jackson? What I routinely see is a QB placing the ball in incredible spots. He allows his WRs to catch and run with the ball. With all respect, lease swallow your Vick hate for a second and don't let it crowd your post. A joke that he was in the MVP running?

    QB rating = 100+
    Yards = 3000+
    TD = 20+
    Int < 7

    Mean while he rushed for 600+ yards and 9 TDS...
    What a joke. I mean 9 rushing TDs from Qb is expected. As is a 3:1 TD to Int ratio. :silly: :blink: :whistle:

    You are the only person in America that would take Orton over Vick....And the fact that you call Orton polished...is laughable.
    BTW you boy Orton threw 9 ints in a much worst Division!!!!
    Wait did you say that Webb is more poised than Vick? :lol:
    Come on, do you even put sugar in that Purple Koolaid?

    To at all dismiss how well Michael Vick played this season is pure hate ... nothing else.

    He clearly had a spectacular season ... and it is definitely not just the receivers. To even start to say Joe Webb has more poise in the pocket than Vick (or Young for that matter) is simply ridiculous.

    As for both Young and Vick ... simply put, they win football games ... don't know what else they need to do. They can try to look pretty for you if you like, but pretty sure that is a job of a pageant contestant ... not an NFL quarterback.

    Vick can win games but to say Vince Young wins games is a little bit of a stretch. Yes Young has a winning record as a starter but did you see that most his wins came from sub .500 teams? He does not have a good record against winning teams, go look it up.
