There's more footage and info form VY's interview with Michael Smith, as apparently it'll be a big, long conversation on ESPN's magazine-style show ESPN360. Here's what ESPN has up at the moment. Check back with MCM today and we'll update you as more parts become available.
There's a lot of confusing and crazy things in there, but the most revealing thing for Titans fans may be that Fisher was at VY's house on Monday picking his brain, and VY seemed to make it clear that he didn't want to play for the rest of the season at that point.
For those of a more literary bent, Vince Young recalls wanting to quit after he was booed in a GAME HE WAS WINNING! Vince does deny that he was in any way suicidal during the confusing events that followed the game, which is good to hear.
Terry McCormick weighs in on the early returns from VY's heart to heart as well.
McCormick, who not to long ago gave us 5 reasons to be optimistic about the upcoming season, now throws Titans fans in the proverbial cold shower with 5 reasons to be shaking in our boots about 2009.
See, this is why I'm livid that NBC snatched up Florio this past weekend: he's a brilliant rumor monger and news aggregator, but asking him to think and analyze that information creates headline/page hit focused drivel that would make William Randolph Hearst proud... and anything that made him proud should make anyone with even a shred perspective or intellectual integrity shiver.
T-Rac's Posse gives us a taste of what Jim Schwartz roasting Jeff Fisher would be like. I love this passage:
The only people that can stand to hang out with [Fisher] for more than ten minutes are Jim Beam and Evan Williams. Personally, I think he’s a bad influence on them... The man makes John Daly look like a 1920s prohibitionist.
Now that the slower period of the off-season is upon us your help in finding out of the way Titans stories is more important than ever.
