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.

This years Pro Bowl was pretty good

I thought the new Pro Bowl this year was great. The draft was new and interesting, the new rules also made the game great.

My favorite rule was the two minute warning every quarter and the ball changing hands after every quarter. I think the NFL should do this in the regular season. When there is less then two minutes there was a sense of urgency. There could be a lot more scoring.

The draft was pretty cool for a number of reason. We saw how some NFL players and legends rate their peers. One of the worst teams, the Cleveland Browns, had three players get drafted in the top ten. The Browns could be really good next season.

We saw teammates play against each other. Derrick Johnson made a huge hit on Kansas City Chiefs teammate Jamaal Charles. Charles suffered a concussion in the playoffs and has been troubled with them before. If I was a Chiefs fan, which I’m not, I wouldn’t be happy. Who knows, that hit could end up ending his career a little early. All the hits in the head add-up and he is probably pretty close to the limit where he will have to retire.

I hope the Pro Bowl is good again next season, but for now, I can’t wait for the Super Bowl.
