I like crazy. Especially in football.

When someone has a couple screws loose and they wander onto the football field someone is going feel their wrath and they will not be denied.

A crazy running back may seek out a linebacker to deliver a punishing blow. Safeties who are whacked out of their mind will try to decapitate receivers exposed in the middle of the field.

As with most rules, there is always an exception. And in this case, crazy doesn't work for quarterbacks.

Vince Young left the reservation in 2008 when Nashville police searched for him after Young's therapist said he mentioned suicide.

It was sad to hear about someone being driven to this point, especially when you consider what caused it.

According to the ESPN report, Young sprained his left MCL in the opening game against the Jaguars and did not react well to the injury and his poor performance.

The boos he received from the home fans probably didn't help his situation much either.

Young talked about the media blowing things out of proportion and I understand that. But for it to even get to the point it did he had to contribute something to problem.

Two years later we saw him loose it again when he basically threw a hissy fit following the Titans' 19-16 loss against the Redskins according to ESPN

I love when Young says, "I'm not running out on my teammates I'm running out on (Jeff Fisher)." It's also cute how he threw his shoulder pads into the stands.

This is everything the Eagles don't need.

The Eagles need a serviceable backup to Michael Vick if and when he goes down with an injury.

They need someone who can stand on the sideline for several weeks and then at the drop of a hat can go into the game and win.

They need someone who can put their personal agendas to the side and think about the best interest of the team at all times.

Unfortunately for Young, crazy doesn't work in those situations and he won't work in Philadelphia.
