I'm not sure what needs to be said on this board about this situation, but it seems there is everything in the world being said on sports and NFL boards. VY, known to be very frustrated by the complexities and pressures of being an NFL QB since before he was drafted in 2006, has a sub-par 1st game-- but a WIN, nevertheless-- suffers a knee injury, and is booed by fans for poor performance and a bad interception. He presence is unaccounted for a few hours, and someone calles the Titans management, which gets the police in on it, indicating his mental state is at least doubtful. He is found in a short time-- nothing really wrong, but an unloaded gun was in his vehicle. The facts get a little fuzzy then, but the Titans say he is alright, but his mama gives an interview asking "What would you do if...[you were persecuted, treated unfairly]..." and refers to him as her "baby boy." Meanwhile, the extent of his injury has to be determined, and the Titans only have one backup QB (veteran Kerry Collins) on active roster, so they consider 3 or 4 free agents, and sign Chris Simms, who was told by the Patriots that they were "going another direction" after calling him in for a workout and physical, and had thought he would end up at Kansas City this week. As of this moment, coach Jeff Fisher has said that Simms did not workout today [is his physical evaluation taking longer than expected?] and refused to answer further questions as to whether VY is continuing to be psychologically examined. Titan fans seem to have completely forgotten their team WON that first games, and are just saying Young is "through" there, he is "head case" and "not a team player." And another facet is emerging about signing Simms. I have seen one post saying "Only the Titans would try to solve the problem of a QB who is a head-case from (University of) Texas by signing another head-case QB from Texas." Then the news comes that VY will be out "2 to 4 weeks" with ligament damage, and some say they are "praying" that Simms will not have to go in to a game, while some think it's inevitable that a 14-year veteran will have to be relieved and that he (Collins) is only going to start for the present because he knows the playbook. And, of course, many or most Titan fans are also Vol fans, and have never forgiven Simms for backing out on his commitment to U-Tennessee to go to U-Texas. Finally, this afternoon a sportstalk radio station made this the subject and one commentator claimed he knows several NFL scouts who refuse to go to U-Texas to evaluate players, because under Mack Brown's program they are "pampered" and "treated like kings" unlike any other bigtime campus, and thus the NFL never gets the ability that they show there when they come in as hazed rookies instead of privileged icons. And one must wonder if there isn't something to all that-- Ricky Williams is a case study by himself, Shaun Rogers and (WR) Roy Williams have been good, not great, and plagued by injuries, several other players have been less than expected-- Quentin Jammer, Cory Redding, et al. But there have been a few in the opposite direction, so far better than expected, such as Selvin Young and Aaron Ross, and maybe Bo Scaife, another Titan. So, the questions that can arise from this... How easy is it to 'ruin' an NFL QB with too much pressure and criticism? I'm sure there aren't many who want to see VY become another type of Jeff Geoge or Ryan Leaf. Are the expectations of fans unfair in the first place for almost any QB? Either he plays (not just posts a win) like a star or he gets booed. Are unfair associations made about certain college programs; i.e, that if some players from there don't meet expectations, that should be a mark against others from the same. And, how much should media report on personal and 'inside' matters of professional athletes and interview family members?-- knowing they go for copy, what is sensational, what is peculiarly expressed, rather than what appears ordinary.
