(Site note: I'm closing on my house and moving today and tomorrow, so I won't be doing the links tomorrow morning. Rest assured that Smash will deliver some great links, however, and we'll go ahead and do the Friday Jam today... in case you didn't get that from the title of the post!)
As we posted yesterday, Cortland Finnegan practiced yesterday and announced that he expects to play on Sunday night. If terrible news, Jason Jones is still out and not practicing with a shoulder injury. His poor health has really been a disappointment as he was expected to help fill the void left by Albert.
You know what our secondary has looked like so far this year? Ian Curtis' jerky, flailing epilepsy fueled dancing for the Joy Division... here's She's Lost Control.
Kerry Collins doesn't really mind the fact that the overwhelming majority of fans think Vince Young should get a shot, and for his part, VY is saying all the right things:
"I am not interested in those questions right now, because that is not what I am looking for us to do, to lose to get back in the game,'' Young said. "That is like saying you have no respect for your teammates. I have a lot of respect for my teammates and have their back 100 percent. If one guy is struggling, we are all struggling, and we need to put the pieces together to get everything right.''
Follow us through the jump to find out who sees a new maturity in VY so far this year...
Jim Wyatt detected a new-found maturity in Young's handling of the media as they did all they could to prod him into making a headline for them. He makes a good point that sometimes Vince would stir things up on accident, but he's even cutting down on those mistakes.
One of the most infuriating things we keep doing this year is going 3-and-out on offense way too much. You combine those wit the turnovers and there's no way we can win without major improvement.
Given how Tony Brown has stepped up, it's no surprise that he's getting fines from the NFL... problem is he won't open the package they sent him. I'm still dying to see what he and Jones would look like on the line at the same time for a few games stretch.
Peyton Manning got a note from Fran Tarkenton, and of course he just couldn't help telling the media exactly how humble he is.
