It's on, bitches
Like I said in the other thread, it's a decent spot for him because Fitz is injury prone and has melted down in the stretch the last two years....
The Buffalo Bills plan to bring veteran free-agent quarterback Vince Young to One Bills Drive Wednesday for a workout, The News has learned through a league source.
The move comes on the heels of last weekend’s NFL Draft, during which the Bills bolstered their depth at just about every position on the team that needed it. Quarterback was not one of those spots, although Bills General Manager Buddy Nix said he would have liked to have taken a QB if the right opportunity arose. The Bills reached a deal with undrafted rookie free agent quarterback Aaron Corp of Richmond on Sunday. He's a developmental player.
Now the Bills are looking to create some significant competition for the backup quarterback job behind starter Ryan Fitzpatrick.
Young, who turns 29 in May, spent last season as a backup to Michael Vick in Philadelphia. He played in seven games and started three. The Eagles opted not to bring him back after his one-year contract ran out. Philadelphia signed ex-Bill Trent Edwards in February.
Young’s experience and great mobility could be attractive to Bills coach Chan Gailey. The Bills’ incumbent backup is Tyler Thigpen, who hardly played last year. He saw only mop-up duty in a loss at San Diego, completing 2 of 6 passes.
Fitzpatrick is entrenched as the Bills' starter. If Young signed with Buffalo, he would become the favorite to beat out Thigpen for the No. 2 spot, based on his talent and experience.
As $#@!ty as Buffalo is, it may just be a great place for Vince.
No pressure, no media hype, no superstar QB ahead of him. Let's do it Vince.
VY in those awesome throwback unis with the white buffalo logo helmet would kick much ass.
Hopefully he has his head right and can continue to add to that 31-19 record and 2 Pro Bowls.....minus the Jeff Fisher sabotage...
I'd love to see the Bills' coaching staff pick up the phone and call Mack to understand how Vince ticks. He's a different breed of cat, but he is magical when he trusts those around him. It's not about laziness, intelligence, or anything else. It's about Vince being confident in himself and his situation.
Get 'em, Vince!
Maybe now those clowns can actually with a Super Bowl.
I will always drink the VY Kool-Aid.
Another good thing about Buffalo is Chan Gailey, who was a college coach at one time and has had some success with Kordell Stewart.....
KILL Vince KILL KILL KILL
I saw Vince at Vince Young Steakhouse, but got too drunk waiting on him and was too intimidated to approach him... /coolstarrybra
watching VY play trannyhill and tebow twice a year would be awesome(if/when fitz gets hurt)
Good spot for Vince. Wonder how many other workouts he has lined up?
I'm listening to NFL radio. These guys seem to think it's a good fit.
Bills fans are $#@!ing retards
$#@! has NO idea.Three things to keep in mind:
1. Trent Edwards made Vince Young expendable.
Yes, that Trent Edwards.
2. Vince Young has all the talent in the world and 0.0% of it consists of work ethic.
3. Even the QB Renovation Realities of franchises decided to not to keep him around.
Is he better than Thigpen? Not sure. Threw four interceptions in a game last year against last year.
I don't think he's "that" guy anymore.
I glanced at their schedule next year and saw Tennessee, St Louis, and Houston (at Reliant) in addition to the division foes.
Another plus: They don't have #10 already taken AND they have Sam Young at RT. Could we see the return of the "V" on the back of the jersey?
Russell Shepards tweetin some VY love right now. Good on him.
good luck to Vince. Make it happen. Hope things go well. Getting tired of not having him attached to a NFL team.
VY opens up the run game. Just ask Chris Johnson. Fred Ex and Spiller will be much pleased. Plus just having VY for a wildcat option is worth the pickup.
VY and Mario on the same team....oh the irony...
don't worry, Mrs. Brown. Things are about to pick up.
as a proud native north texan and 4-decade boyz fan, my dreamscape alternative reality features an oilers team sold by bud adams in 1980 or so, and they wear the kits in this picture as their standard uniform, a la the jets going retro permanently.
this alternative reality also includes vince young having won the past 2 superbowls with the cowboys. both wins over the steelers.
and there was also a split in the continuum with 2 minutes left in the 4th quarter in lubbock four years ago.
and tim howard made 2 saves against ghana in '10.
it's a very happy place. i travel there frequently.
Maybe we can get AWilliams to go bradford on fitzpatrick in practice...
The Bills, huh? Sure, I could be a Bills fan.
VY 'til I die.
