Time for Young to do some walking

Standard

According to the Tennessean, via ProFootballTalk.com, Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young stated that he wants to make the Hall of Fame one day.  As the saying goes if your going to talk the talk you better walk the walk.

In 10 starts last year Young for the first time in his career had more touchdowns than interceptions as he threw 10 touchdowns and seven interceptions.  Also, he had his highest yards passing per a game last year with 187.9.

The goal of the Hall of Fame should be enough motivation for him to keep working hard at improving everyday.

In the end, the sky is the limit for Young with the talent he has.

Good night and good luck.

Lynch looks like he is on the block

Standard

I recently wrote that the move of signing running back Walter Mendenhall was to replace running back Marshawn Lynch after he is traded.  Well that looks to be dead on.

According to Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports, via ProFootballTalk.com, a Pro Bowl running back is indeed on the trade market.

If he is indeed on the block it is a dumb move.  Lynch is a tremendous running back and trading him is the coward’s way out.

Some would argue that general manager Buddy Nix and head coach Chan Gailey inherited him and have no obligation to him.

However, the fact of the matter is that they are a team that is still trying to build and need every single player possible.

Also, the Bills wouldn’t get anything of value for Lynch as teams are not going to give up a lot for a guy that is one wrong move away from being suspended for the whole year.

In the end, winning organizations like the New England Patriots don’t give up on players like Lynch they find a way to deal with it and make them a better person.

Could lightning strike twice?

Standard

On Friday ESPN reported that Ben Roethlisberger won’t be indicted on sexual assault charges. However, could lightning be striking twice.

According to ProFootballTalk.com, no other media outlet has confirmed the ESPN story.

Secondly, Ocmulgee, Georgia Judicial Circuit District Attorney Fred Bright reponded to the report to Sean Leahy of the USA Today with, “I don’t know where they’re getting that information. I haven’t announced anything yet. I’ll make my announcement at 2 p.m. Monday.”

It looks like ESPN in a rush to beat everyone to the punch dropped the ball again. If that is the case it is disturbing.

The reason being that back on July 17th, 2007 ESPN reported that then Atlanta Falcons quarterback Mike Vick wouldn’t be indicted on dog fighting charges when later that very day Vick was indicted.

The fact of the matter is that Roethlisberger may not be charged with sexual assault, but could be brought up on something else like providing alcohol to a minor since the female victim was 20 years old and in Georgia you have to be 21 to buy a drink.

In the end, Roethlisberger will be charged with something Monday.
