Default Vince Young, melts down after injury, walks out on team.

http://www.tennessean.com/article/20...TS01/101121013

The Titans lost a football game on Sunday, but quarterback Vince Young lost his starting job, his head coach and perhaps his entire team.

Following a 19-16 loss to the Redskins in overtime, an emotional Young abruptly left LP Field on the heels of what sources said was a verbal confrontation with Coach Jeff Fisher.

Young apparently was upset because he wasnt given a chance to return to action after sustaining a torn flexor tendon in his right thumb, an injury that could require season-ending surgery.

Fisher said Young is no longer the starting quarterback injury or not.

I am very disappointed. I think his teammates are disappointed, Fisher said. You know, there is going to be frustration in losses, and there are times you have to dig deep and fight and turn to one another. I dont think you run. There are some things that need to change.

Young, who was booed in the first half and injured in the third quarter, tossed his shoulder pads and jersey into the stands as he left the field. Tensions escalated in the locker room.

According to sources, Young was talking under his breath, uttering expletives, as Fisher prepared to address the team. When Fisher told him to keep quiet, Young finished dressing and started to leave. Fisher told Young to stop, saying not to run out on your teammates.

Young then told Fisher Im not running out on my teammates, Im running out on you, sources said. More words were exchanged and Young left.

I think he should go with his coach.

Young isn't ever gonna get it. And not to be mean, but I think he's seriously lacking in the intelligence department so he'll never get what he needs to got.

It's amazing how there are so many players in the league that have talent but unfortunately their lack of smarts nullifies it.

After they release Young, I say the Steelers should sign him...

Being serious, he probably wont start for another team for a while... Unless it's the bengals.

Was this VY's last snap for Titans?

DAVID CLIMER, The Tennessean

Posted on November 21, 2010



A handoff to Chris Johnson for no gain. That could very well be the result of the last snap of the football Vince Young ever plays for the Titans.
With word surfacing of a heated exchange between Young and Coach Jeff Fisher in front of the rest of the team following the overtime loss to Washington on Sunday, it is fair to wonder if this is the end of Young's career with the Titans. He is under contract through the 2011 season but it's hard — if not impossible — to see Fisher and Young coexisting.
But there is one other factor to consider: Bud Adams. The Titans' 87-year-old owner is a longtime supporter and fan of Young. He made it clear that he wanted the Titans to draft Young in 2006. When the team struggled early in Young's rookie season, Adams opined that it was time to push him into the lineup.
And when the Titans began last season 0–6 with Kerry Collins at quarterback, Adams ordered Fisher to make the switch to Young.
That edict from Adams last year did not sit well with Fisher, who believes he should have the final word on personnel decisions.
Stay tuned.

It will be interesting to see how the rest of the Cowboy's season goes, because if Jason Garret is found to be lacking by Jerry Jones the guy I think he'd be most interested in is Jeff Fisher, and I think the interest might be mutual.

Regardless there's no way the titans can go into the 2011 season with both Young and Fisher on the team.
