    Vince Young sends apology letter to Jeff Fisher

    I don't really feel like it was my game. I just really feel like [it was] some of the off-the-field issues," Young said. "I really feel like teams don't want their quarterback to be in a position where they're distracted. I was young at the time and I put my trust in a lot of people. I was getting taken advantage of. Basically I'm the victim of the situation. Just got to clean up that mess, just to let teams know I'm a little bit more mature than I used to be. I've grown a whole lot."
    Still in denial.

    In crayon, no doubt.
    There is a time to laugh and a time not to laugh, and this is not one of them.

    Spot on. That's what stood out to me too when I read that.

    He was on NFL-AM this morning, the wife was watching the interview with me (he was on the phone). When it was done, before I could say anything, she said "Amazing, he blamed everyone else--he was the victim. Who was he again?"

    Yah, you are definitely waiting for him to say something like "Man, I was an immature A-hole".

    I really just posted this for Q though haha

    I heard he sent an apology to Chili's too...he let them down. If he merely spent money there instead of the more expensive Cheesecake Factory, he might have made it a little longer.

    That's one crappy apology.

    "I was a victim". Yes, poor Vince. You had it so tough being picked high in the draft with all that money and the opportunity to start. What a joker.

    How come you guys are leaving out this part?

    He said during his time with the Titans he was "immature and not paying attention and not listening, and taking my frustration out on a lot of people wasn't the right thing to do."
    "Stop doing the wrong things. Stop promoting competition and choice as answers to the very inequality that was created by competition and choice."

    Because his other comments about him being a victim clearly shows that there has been little to no maturity (which was his biggest problem), which make his few nice quotes seem fraudulent.

    I guess he can no longer afford a competent PR person. It makes me all giddy when I hear apologies from people who basically shoot themselves in the foot and reveal they are really only sorry things didn't go their way. He must have gone to the Lance Armstrong school of apologetics there at U/Texas Austin, same home town, same Bat Chanel.

    He is not the evil person that Armstrong is., the only life he has ruined was his own. But he is equally despicable for so many reasons.. F Vince Young, Jeff Fisher had it right years ago and obviously nothing has changed.

    I'd pretty much agree with that, Dave. I can't help but wonder - we'll never know - but I wonder what would have happened if he had been picked by Houston who, IIRC, had a shot at him with the #1 pick but they took the DE Mario Williams from NC State.

    I think Houston is Young's hometown. I wonder if he'd have melted down quicker there, or about the same or not at all. Clearly things didn't work well for him in Tennessee, and while I'm not absolving him (I have nothing to absolve him for nor was I involved and able to make any kind of assessment) but we must remember it Takes Two To Tango. Tennessee/Fischer probably tried everything, and other QB's before and since Vince haven't had those problems under Fischer. Was there any antidote they didn't try, or were their methods of 'fixing Vince' just not doable with Vince? Ultimately it was up to Vince to get his act together. It's a shame, kind of, in that he showed flashes of being an All-Pro. I seem to recall he had a rather rough childhood. Maybe all that fame/money so fast was too much for him to handle.
