Mawae isn't impressed with Vince Young

When a respected former player like Kevin Mawae talks, many people listen. So when he candidly discuess an old teammate, Titans QB Vince Young, Mawae is probably making sense.

Though this isn’t a huge shocker, Mawae intimated to that Young isn’t exactly professional in the way he handles himself. Of course, it’s not a revelation, but you also haven’t seen many of Young’s teammates speak so critically of him (with the exception of Tennessee coach Jeff Fisher).

Reporter Paul Kuharsky asked Mawae about Young’s leadership.

“It might be time for a change of scenery,” Mawae said. “I played with Warren Moon, I played with Vinny Testaverde, I played with Kerry Collins, I played with Chad Pennington, and the one thing all those guys had in common is that they were all field generals and leaders on the field. And there is one name missing that’s very obvious. And there is a difference in those four players versus the one that plays for the Titans.

“... It is disappointing because the kid’s got all the talent in the world and has had an opportunity to step up and hasn’t done so. He’s a great athlete and he wins games. That’s one thing you can never take away from Vince is that he wins ballgames. ... But as far as being the consummate pro like some of the other guys in the league, it’s disappointing that he hasn’t taken that step.”

Disagree? All you have to do is recall how Young left his teammates in the locker room while storming out to his car following an overtime loss to the Redskins. Not what you’d call a chivalrous showing of top-notch leadership.

Mawae isn't impressed with Vince Young

Fisher is a great coach and Vince Young is a proven winner and as good as he is he will only get better. We really don’t know exactly what happen in the locker room but it really piss Fisher off. I would hope that time will heal this relationship. This was their year to shine and they cannot win consistently without Vince Young. BUD is not crazy nor does he have his head in the sand.  The Titians best chance to win is with a healthy Vince Young under the guidance of Jeff Fisher.  Players don’t trust Mawae he will throw you under the bus.

If you would provide better service then maybe you would get a tip.  Typical liberal communist wants to get paid for nothing.

How about these guys on offense believing in themselves. If they have 11 guys standing around and looking for a leader that's really the problem. They need to see each other as getting a play that's called that will work and 11 guys doing everything they can to get it done. Each one has football skills, time to execute the plays.

This does have relevance...when the Press feels they have to say something about Jeff Fisher's future
with the Titans...on a daily basis

If Fisher can't move this team beyond Young...he should be done ..
like Gruden..he will be great in his next job
