        Remember Vince Young? The guy who had a passer rating upwards of 160 in his senior season at Texas. The guy who single handedly picked apart the USC Defense to win the 2005 Rose Bowl. The Guy who went third overall in the draft and has won over two-thirds of his career NFL starts. I remember that guy, so do the Jags, Niners, Bills, and Texans.

          Throughout his NFL career, Vince Young has been like the awkward looking grape that is in every bunch. It tastes fine, it's good for you, but there's something about it that you just don't want to eat. SO you put it back in the bowl and look for the round, perfectly shaped, Kerry Collins grapes because you know that they will taste normal. The Titans finally decided to eat that grape a month ago, and boy did it taste good. There has always been that little something about Vince Young, he throws from a low slot, he tries to do too much, he can;t handle the pressure, but the fact is, Vince Young can straight up win games (not fantasy games, mind you.) Vince Young is currently on a 9 game winning streak when he starts and knows how to lead his team to victory, as he showed on Monday Night. With Chris Johnson in the backfield. The Titans have a fantastic backfield that will lead them to victory for years to come.

With 6 weeks left in the season, Vince Young has a chance to bring the Titans to a remarkable 10-6 record after starting 0-6. If he does that, he will defineately get the credit he deserves and start erasing memories of a different quarteback named Young, and start creating some of his own.
