Vince Young Played NFL Football Tonight for The Packers of Green Bay

VY. Forever.

Jonathan Daniel

I was unable to watch the Packers / Cardinals game live as I don't live in Weyauwega, Wahashnufuque, Wauwatosa or Waukesha (BoDeans, holler!).

So I did what any master of modern media would do, I searched Twitter for Vince Young and followed along interactively.

Started out pretty good:

Now we're rolling!

Then, well, not really sure:

Okay, now we're back on track:

He's winning over the cheddarheads!

Apologies. That was probably a bit harsh.

Back to the fun. Kindred spirits!

Claro que si, amigo!


Let's not get crazy.

So, it seems he did some good things but didn't put the team on his back and carry them to an all important preseason victory like the space alien that lives in our collective memory would have. I know that's not realistic.

I think the NFL Network will replay it tonight, so I'll TiVo that.

I did enjoy the Packers team blog and the comments from Mike McCarthy.

(on Vince Young) "My goal with Vince was to get him about 10 or 12 snaps. He’s only been here a couple days. Just wanted to get him where he can go play quarterback. If you’ve been down at practice, particularly yesterday’s practice, I didn’t think I did a very good job of getting him things he’s comfortable with. We were able to spend some time this morning and ironed out a package for him. I thought he did some nice things. I’m trying to think of his two third downs. He had the one competitive throw, with the contact on their sideline, and he had the one that was dropped. We had a double move shot, I’m not exactly sure what happened there, why the ball wasn’t thrown or how the route ended up. It was good just to get him out there. I wanted to get him out there. He hasn’t played football in a year. Obviously, the quarterback position is a little different than playing other positions, so I was happy to get him in the game, get him in the flow of the game and definitely get him started, and we’ll try to do more with him next week."

When it comes to Vince, I'm not really rational or logical. I'm with Young Williams on this.

Come on, man. Get it done. We're all rooting for you.
