Coddling of Vince Young in college should serve as a warning for Manti Te'o's NFL career

I hate this story. I hate it because of its half-truths. No discussion of rookie of the year. No discussion of the two Pro Bowls. No mention of saving Jeff Fisher's job for him one year. Jeff Fisher! Irony! VY knows a lot of his problems are of his own making but to posit that he spent all of his time in the NFL curled up like a toddler is silly and inaccurate. Go look at his stats through his first five years and compare them to the best in the game. Go ask Chris Johnson what he thinks. Go ask Kenny Britt if the $5,000 fine was worth it. Ask fellow Longhorn Bo Scaife about the locker room. I don't even want to get into Mack and coddling. I'm about spent on that. Yeah, I'm a huge VY homer. So, I ask you guys, is that a fair representation of his NFL career?
