Originally posted by BrianUKNiner: Footballguys.com Unconfirmed RUMOR. One of my guys is hearing talk of a Vince Young for Alex Smith deal being discussed. That would be a great discussion if it were to happen. Again, please don't take this for anything more than it is at this point - a RUMOR. But I've always operated this thing on the "you'll know what I know" line of thinking. So I'm passing along what I'm hearing. Take it for what it's worth and keep an eye out.

You also need a guy whose hands are big enough to hold onto the ball, who can play with poise, who can make split decisions, who can release the ball quickly, and who does not telegraph where he's throwing it.

Won offensive rookie of the year and led his team to the playoffs. What has Alex Smith ever done?
Vince Young >>>> Alex Smith
Seriously, what has Alex Smith ever done? What?
Yes Young won OROY. Big whoop. He was still carrying his hype from the National Championship game. His defense carried the season. He hasn't done jack all since a semi-decent rookie year.
I'm not saying that Alex Smith is the answer by any means. But at this point in time, i'd rather take a QB who has maturity and a strong desire to play the game than a guy who can't beat our Kerry Collins and is contemplating dropping out of the league.
