Vince Young: Jeff Fisher Gives Former QB Praise, Support
Despite Past Troubles, Fisher Has Positive Things To Say About Young
Vince Young got some support from an unlikely source this week, former coach Jeff Fisher.
Fisher and Young famously had a falling out on the field toward the end of last season, and the incident got uglier once it got back to the locker room with Young reportedly telling Fisher off before leaving.
That was the last game Young played for the Titans as he was put on injured reserve for a thumb injury.
“Vince has won a lot of games; he’s led teams to the playoffs before,” Fisher said. ”I believe he can (win in the NFL). It’s just a matter of him finding a place that suits him and be in the right place and work hard. But he certainly has that ability.”
While the words from Fisher are nice, they are fairly vanilla. What is notable is that Fisher gave vanilla comments to begin with.
Given Fisher's tumultuous relationship with Young, it is easy to see why even vanilla comments about Young are surprising.
Fisher soured on Young fairly early in the relationship, and Young always seemed to be one bad pass from being benched, which did happen more than once.
Young has shown he is emotionally unstable, and the pressures of being a starting quarterback in the NFL have never sat well on his shoulders.
Young still is young enough and talented enough to get another chance, but unless he finally has matured between the ears, he will continue to be erratic and meltdown when things go bad.
