Losing your starting position to a rookie can be a tough pill to swallow. But you have to be the bigger person and simply take it for what it is. However, for Vince Young, his way of dealing with becoming second string was to throw a pure, needless to say, b**** fit.
The Tennessee Titans’ QB reportedly stormed off of the field during Sunday’s game against the Washington Redskins as a result of not returning to the game. Now it wasn’t just enough for Young to simply walk off the field. Nope. He had to let the whole world know just how mad he was by adding some extra dramatics to his exit, tossing his pads into the stands. Was all that really needed though Vince?
Many may have thought that Young losing his starting spot was related to the thumb injury that he received late in the second half during the Titans’ loss against the Redskins. But with the way he behaved, even with a healthy thumb, Vince Young may be riding the bench for much longer than he expected.
Coach Jeff Fisher on Young’s angry outburst:
“Clearly, that is no way to respond, so we have some things we have to sort out with him. He may need surgery, and if that’s the case, he is done for the year. If that’s the case, Rusty is our guy.”
Fisher also said that he was unaware that Young even wanted to go back into the game. So remind me again why Vince Young showed his ass? Sometimes I think these pro players forget who runs the team. It’s the guys with the headsets on better known as the coaching staff. The next time Vince Young feels the need to let his anger out, he may want to think about doing it behind closed doors. Nothing’s worse than a public tantrum for all to see.
