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.

 

Top rivals.com quarterbacks by year

When I want to see what a high school player is ranked, I look at rivals.com because they have been right right many times in the past. Today I went and looked back at the top quarterbacks they have rated each year. Its pretty interesting and most of these guys made the NFL. I will give my thoughts on each one.

Vince Young was a good pick. He won a national title and was drafted third overall.

Kyle Wright didn’t have a great aceer at Miami. When he got there, they were a top ten ranked team, and when he left they were on a downward spiral.

I thought Rhett Bomar was a great player at Oklahoma. Then he got in trouble with a car dealership. He was a late round draft pick and he never could make it in the NFL.

Mark Sanchez had a good college career and was the fifth overall pick. Rivals got this one correct.

Matt Stafford became a number one overall pick. Rivals got this pick 100% correct.

Jimmy Clausen rolled into Notre Dame in a limo and was expected to win multiple Heismans. That wasn’t the case and he left Notre Dame as a second round pick.

Terrelle Pryor was a very good college quarterback who led Ohio St. to a BCS game every year he was there. If he hadn’t been in trouble he probably would have been a very high draft choice. Even though he was drafted in the supplemental draft, he was able to become a starter.

Matt Barkley was a sure fire top draft choice before returning to USC for his senior season. That was a mistake. USC did terrible his senior year and he fell deep in the draft.

Jake Heaps, Jeff Driskel, Jameis Winston and Max Browne are past number ones that are still in college.
