McFarland: Jake Locker Is the Anti-Vince Young

You might remember that ESPN's Chris Mortensen called Jake Locker the anti-Vince Young as soon as the Tennessee Titans drafted him. Locker has done nothing but prove that he is exactly that every time we have seen or heard from him since the draft. Locker said after his first workout with teammates in Nashville that he didn't want it to be about him. Darren McFarland of Titan Insider says that is exactly the opposite of what VY wanted:

That’s a far cry from the way his predecessor Vince Young operated while he was the Titans quarterback. Young might say that the focus wasn't about him, but his actions and ego spoke otherwise. Young had his times when he didn’t want to talk to the media either, but more often than not, it was because he didn’t want to be held accountable for his shortcomings and mistakes - often treating media sessions with the same zeal he treated extra film study.

In truth, Young loved the celebrity that he and his legacy in Texas created, but he didn’t love the work involved to ascend to the top of his profession....

Again I will say that there is a lot more involved in becoming a successful NFL QB than putting in the work, but that is one thing we know we don't have to worry about when it comes to Locker.  That is refreshing.
