Interested to hear that Vince Young was among the QBs that worked out for #Raiders yesterday. So did Troy Smith. Heard Vince looked good.


VY would be my #1 choice at this stage. He has starting potential and a career winning record. Hungry and could push Flynn.


what? you don't like Terrelle Pryor but you want this bum? Terrelle has more potential, is hungrier and could push Flynn a lot harder than Young. a career winning record shouldn't hold any weight in any type of discussion ever.

VY throws a better ball than Pryor everyday of the week. Sorry, but until Pryor can show accuracy and the inability to loft balls he's simply nothing more than a gimmick option. This is a passing league.

what VY are you watching? did you see his game against Seattle a couple years ago? the guy can't throw and he is as dumb as a rock.. Vince Young will be 30 next month, he has no potential.. he probably wont even be on a roster this year, unless we sign him.

I usually stay outta these debates, but really? You're really saying VY is better than TP? They're pretty much the same guy except TP is younger with upside and no headcase issues.

I love what Reggie is doing by filling out the roster and adding competition. However, QB is not one of the positions that IMO you can just throw bodies at. I would much rather draft a QB in the later rounds or get an UDFA to man the #3 spot then just shove in somebody with a name. We have a great chance to start fresh and develop our own guys.

The real question here is that we're looking at mobile QBs to fill in. VY, Wallace, and Smith all line up with TP and not Flynn. It may not mean anything, just an observation.

Cried his way outta Tennessee. Proclaimed Eagles as the "Dream Team" failed as a fill in there. Bills release him.

If he's "pushing" Flynn we are SCREWED.

Troy Smith I don't mind. I still think he has some potential.

We sure are getting QB's that have mobility. Flynn has underrated mobility, Pryor is one of the most mobile in the NFL, and now Young/Smith? Olson must have some crazy plays drawn up.

lol. Just read your sig.

Funny I wait forever to buy a new generation jersey. Finally, we draft McClain and I say to myself surely this guy will be here for a while. Safest pick I can remember in recent history, so I buy his. Guess I need to wait another year or two before getting another one. lol

Brandon Moore would be a nice option at LG.

What the heck happened to Peyton Hillis? Why did his game fall off so dramatically?

At first I was extremely confused about what this meant, then I read something and it made sense LOL.

I get you're just razzing him but hell, he's right 90% of the time. No one's perfect Smile
