I am surprised there is not much mention, if any, for Vince Young, who in 2005 owned the Rose bowl. With a new coach, a new start, he could be terrific.
The other point is , our QB is not a problem is harbaugh is signed, because of all the things he does well, coaching up Qbs is his forte. I don't think it matters who is qb if we sign harbaugh, because he can make anybody look great. Vince young remains intriguing to me and it is hard to believe they just dropped him. Wow. I would take a flyer on vince in a heartbeat.
I think it's because people are just scared of the drama that comes with him. If he wouldn't have those issues, he would be a perfect fit for us, but at the same time I don't think Titans would've let him go.
I still think it would be worth taking him, despite all of his issues. I mean, Vick had ISSUES and I was in favor of the 9ers taking a shot with him as well. He's turning out all right.
My list of choices for QB:
1. Vince Young + Draft QB
2. Josh Johnson + sign either of the Smiths (or Boller) to back him up
3. Kyle Orton + Draft QB (this would cost the 9ers a 3rd round pick most likely)
4. McNabb + Draft QB
5. Kolb (this would cost the 9ers a 1st round pick most likely)
I'm not sold on Kolb. I really think Vince Young is a winner. And if we sign Harbaugh then Josh Johnson probably has the most upside of any QB out there. He's young though so trading for him would be the equivalent of drafting a QB. Which is why we'd need an experienced back up. Paging Shaun Hill?
On Vince Young: He is not a viable option.
Jeff Fisher is a veteran coach with a rep for being a "players coach" and at the same time fair and disciplined. If Young can't get along with Fisher it should send a message of warning.
Also, Titan TE Bo Scaife who also played with Young at Texas was quoted on Wednesday as saying that the emotional issues that Young has were in evidence at Texas as well. His statement was that "some things just can't be corrected. Time to move on."
So it appears that Young's issues are not new and not conducive to an organization and team that has had more than its share of high drama.
