Very glad that Vince Young is getting this chance with the Browns

The best play I have ever seen. My favorite Sports Illustrated cover ever.

The best play and game I have ever seen. My favorite Sports Illustrated cover ever. Just looking at this cover brings back memories of pure passion and bliss.

When Vince Young suited up for the Green Bay Packers last year in preseason, I had wished the Browns would give him a chance. He is one of my favorite players ever. I was surprised he didn’t make the Packers final roster. His play at the University of Texas was literally magical.

The 2006 Rose Bowl National Championship game will be one I never forget. That touchdown run on 4th and 5 is one I will also never forget. That is one of those moments that I even remember exactly where I was watching it. Unforgettable. I hated USC then. In fact, my favorite team was whoever was playing them.

USC was so good. They always won. When Texas met them in the title game, I never wanted a team to win more. Still to this day I’m not sure if I’ve ever rooted for a team harder.

Vince Young’s performance that night was the best I’ve ever seen. The joy he brought me was so great that it actually has pained me to see him go downhill the last five years or so.

I think he is talented. In preseason last year, he completed more then half of his passes which may not sound that great, but he hadn’t played in a while.

I can’t wait to see what he does with this new chance. I wish him the best of luck. Because of him I love college football as much as I do, which also was the time I started following NFL like a maniac. So who knows, I possibly owe my love of football to him.

I’ll never forget what he did that night in Pasadena and I hope he makes it on a NFL roster for the entirety of the 2014 season. It is an honor to have him on the Browns.

Book it! Padres are gonna blow your mind and win the division

I think the San Diego Padres will finish first in the division and host the playoffs this coming season. They have a solid rotation, bullpen and starting lineup.

The Padres have a secret weapon in reliever Nick Vincent. Hes virtually unknown but he has put up fantastic numbers. In just over 72 career inning, Vincent has a 1.98 earned run average. Joaquin Benoit and Huston Street each are safe but I think Vincent is better then Dale Thayer and that Vincent will get more important work then Thayer. The Padres recently acquire left handed specialist Alex Torres.

The rotation was pretty strong last season but this year they have added Josh Johnson. He will join Ian Kennedy, Eric Stults, Andrew Cashner and Tyson Ross as starters in the rotation. If everything goes to plan that could be one of the best rotations in baseball. I think that everything will go right and that those five starters will average 16 wins.

The Padres start the season on Sunday Night Baseball which could be huge. The Dodgers are coming to town and theirs a 99 percent chance that Clayton Kershaw will be pitching. If the Padres can get to him and win this this game there mentality for the season would be, “We can do this, we can beat anyone.”

The bats are waiting to explode. This will hopefully be the ear that Carlos Quentin finally stays healthy and hits a lot of home runs. Even if he gets hurt again I’m not worried. I have seen every one of the hitters show flashes of greatness. The Padres are about to win and surprise people just like the Seahawks did when nobody took them seriously.

Buster Olney predicted the Padres to go to the playoffs. I agree. I think they will go an incredible 99-63 and win the division.
