Vince Young finds himself in the same situation as Michael Vick did in 2009.
Exiled from becoming a starting quarterback, Young must find his game again under the tutelage of Andy Reid as a back-up in his system.
How will the Philadelphia Eagles utilize Young in their offense in 2011?
Will Young prove to be a valuable asset to the team's success this season?
The obvious choice is wildcat quarterback.
However, with Ronnie Brown on the roster, Vince Young may be more suited to carry the clipboard than run this offense.
Young needs to see the field one way or another. Wildcat may be his best chance to showcase that he can still impact a game with his athleticism.
Perhaps, Young can line up in the backfield along side LeSean McCoy in a two back set.
Defenses would have to second guess which back would be receiving the ball in that situation.
However, Young is too valuable to have in a split back set.
He is the back-up quarterback and is the team's best chance if Michael Vick would go down with an injury.
Young's speed combined with his larger physique could make him a good tight end in spots.
This is a reach to get him on the field to get the defense thinking of course, but it is worth a shot.
Teams would not know how to defend Young in this situation.
Andy Reid is always tinkering around to find new ways to attack a defense.
Young at tight end may be one of those ways.
Finally, Young could not be used at all in the offense at times.
With both Vick and Young on the field at the same time, defenses will have to pick their poison.
Sometimes, that will mean Young will line up on the play, but not receive the ball.
It is psychological warfare in a physical game.
Planting the thought that Young could get the ball on any given play could be enough for other things to become successful.
