The crap's been flying at Vince for over a week now, and VY finally kind of vented ever so slightly yesterday when reporters brought up Steelers week again, and now he's the subject of an article that's supposed to be unflattering if you don't occasionally think for yourself:
"I feel like I was prepared," said Young, who had never faced Pittsburgh. "I just had some turnovers. Everybody throws interceptions, and just because it's me, I guess I wasn't prepared, so that's what they are saying.
"At the same time, everybody has bad games. You are not going to have a perfect game. But that is in the past and I have moved on from that, did a great job against the Giants and getting prepared for another team coming in here on Sunday.''
Jimmy, Gray and myself talked about Vince Young and Jeff Fisher at length last night on MCM Radio, so make sure you check it out and find out who is softening up on giving Jeff Fisher such a hard time... we also had a good conversation with a Broncos blogger from Mile High Report.
Alterraun Verner is getting his first start, and the Broncos were actually one of the teams that was so interested in taking him that we traded up in the fourth round by trading LenDale to secure his rights. Now, they're looking to give him his 'welcome to the NFL moment'.
By coaching this week's game against the Broncos, Jeff Fisher will join an elite group of coaches who have coached at least 250 games with the same team. Other field generals to accomplish that feat include George Halas, Tom Landry, Don Shula, Chuck Noll and not many more.
John Oesher at the Fanhouse breaksdown the key match-ups across the AFC South for Sunday's games. I was surprised for him to describe the Broncos' secondary in such glowing terms, and he picks that group versus Vince Young to be the key match-up.
Ineffective running back Knowshon Moreno could be inactive for Sunday's game, meaning he wouldn't get to share the backfield with their other ineffective RBs.
Well folks, we have what is easily the best story of the 2010 NFL season already in the books:
- Chad Ochocinco has a new breakfast cereal called "OchocincO's." Surprised? Not as surprised as you'll be when you dial the 800 number on the box for the charity Feed the Children and are greeted by a sultry voice reviewing a menu for a different kind of "eye opener" breakfast treat.
Who woulda thunk Mario Manningham got a concussion last Sunday. Manningham didn't alert the medical staff until later that evening, and maybe it was just a really mild one because he appears to have nailed the balance and coordination tests they've administered.
