    Tavaris/Vince Update

    Vince Young released by Buffalo Bills - NFL.com
    Young was in position to be the team's backup, but his struggles throughout the preseason sealed his fate. VY completed less than half of his 26 passes for only 103 yards and two picks on Saturday against the Steelers.
    The team agreed to acquire Tarvaris Jackson shortly after that.
    SI.com's Peter King reported that the Bills only had to give up a seventh-round draft pick that could upgrade to the sixth round for Jackson. The fact that Buffalo had to send a draft pick away to replace Young says a lot, though.
    Maybe the Jets could use Vince.


    Let my Fred's Posse Ride: Georges, Naz, Hogue, Bryce, Nader, Monte, Matt, and McKay.

    It says something about Vince Young considering they cut him and then traded for Tarvaris.


    They say country music speaks to the heart. Unfortunately, it has to go through your ears to get there.

    From rotoworld:
    "Through three preseason games, Young completed 25-of-52 passes (48.1 percent) for 276 yards, with no touchdowns and two interceptions. This comes on the heels of a disastrous season 2011 season in Philadelphia which saw him compile a 60.8 passer rating in six appearances. If Young can't succeed under quarterback gurus Andy Reid and Chan Gailey, he's in big trouble. Tarvaris Jackson, acquired via trade Sunday, will be Ryan Fitzpatrick's backup."

    Exactly.

    It's a shame that a QB like Young isn't kicking ***** in the NFL. Regardless, he'll always go down as a QB that had one of the most memorable game performances ever, in the USC game. He was like a God out there.

    Tavaris just sucks as a NFL QB. I never understood what Childress saw in him.

    Re: Tavaris/Vince Update

    He can still be a very good NFL QB IMO. Just needs to find the right team.

    If I'm the Arizona Cardinals I'm calling him up right now. What's it going to hurt? Their QB's can't get any worse.
