    Vince Young is not the answer.

    Signing Young would be a disaster.

    I understand that playing with a ticking time bomb isn't safe, but as far as QB goes, Vince Young is no answer.

    Stoda is a buffoon. Young is garbage. He doesn't have it in the head. You can't have the leader of your team and the orchestrator of your offense with the IQ of a grape...

    I'm not the biggest VY fan, but the whole point of the article is accurate. Kyle Orton isn't going to get us anywhere . . . now maybe VY won't either . . . but he is a wildcard and can bring things to the table that Orton cannot. Plus VY I'm assuming would be free.

    I dunno, Miami needs to take a chance here . . . especially with Henne still on the team and probably the front runner in any scenario.

    Yea lets bring a guy in who attempted suicide, threw his shoulder pads into the crowd, quit on his team, argues with his coach and apologizes via text and doesn't have the balls to face in person, refuses to warm up before a game because he was not named the starter (against us), no thanks to that unstable nut, IDC if he is 32-0 as a starter, I don't want him anywhere near our franchise, I would rather stick with Henne or bring in Orton, bringing in Vince Young would be irresponsible and reckless by this front office, no thanks!

    Lake mediocrity is starting to really stink, at least Young would give the possibility of a Vick type blossoming.

    If Not.......we can draft a proper prospect next year.

    At least we took a shot at greatness versus swimming with the rest of the bottomfeeders in a hopeless going nowhere fishbowl.

    I like your thinking more than most Blue, and the rest of those that are just crazy enough to take a shot with VY. Unfortunately the thanks button is broke.

    I say sign him up for competition. He could be the answer to getting someone who can compete here in Miami. If he doesn't win the job, he'll be a back up. What's the big deal?

    Did anyone stop to consider the fact we could end up with, "shudder" both VY and Orton?

    Come on now, in all seriousness, Young would have to be the $1000 answer in that category, don't you think?

    Here is the way I see it. You get Orton who is unlikely to get you above 8 or 9 wins, an improvement, but a moderate one, not to mention it costs us a draft pick to get Orton.

    With Young, you can either sink or swim. He either crashes and burns and we suck (and draft a QB in a very good class next year) or he excels and we improve. If Orton comes in and fails, we'll be looking at having to spend TWO 2012 draft picks on a QB (the 3rd for Orton, and likely a 1st on a 'franchise' type player). With Vince Young, you could just cut him and walk away.

    It just makes more sense to me. Remember last time we passed on a free agent to trade for someone? (Daunte Culpepper over Drew Brees)

    Well Orton is not the Answer for any team other than a quality back up. On the other hand VY is 30-17 as a starter and the Titans are 15-18 without him. That says e erything we need to know. What we don't know is the speculation regarding his personal life, what we do know is he argued with his coach cause he wanted to stay in the game after tearing a tendun in his thumb. I'll take fact over rumors any day!

    I agree acquiring Orton is a waste of time in my opinion. We dont seem to be trying to get over the hump. Still playing it safe.

    I agree with you Blue. Perhaps he can turn into another Michael Vick comeback kid type of situation. If Young tears things up like Vick, attendance will go through the roof. If not, we toss his azz into the garbage and we still have our 1st, 2nd & 3rd intact. The only problem is that if Dolphins stink this season, that's it for Sporano and crew.

    A headcase like Vince Young with Brandon Marshall in a city like Miami??? That's a recipe for trouble! No thanks!

    The guy has the talent, he just needs the right people around him. I do like the idea of Orton and B Marsh reuniting. Really any QB IMO, but McNabb is an upgrade. I traveled to 5 home games from Tampa last year, spent thousands of dollars including merchandise and way too much time, to watch a QB who can't run a 2 minute drill, one-hop the ball to WR's. Henne at best gets us 7-9. VY can spread the field. We have 2 of the top 10 tackels in the game and a great interior line. He'll have plenty of time and more than enough space for bootlegs and rolling out, which keeps the defense on their toes, ask Philly

    I've followed Vince Young's (VY from here on out) career from the time he was a Longhorn until now. Jeff Fisher never wanted VY in Tennessee. Fisher wanted Matt Leinart. Bud Adam's forced him to take VY and Fisher wanted VY to fail from day 1. VY was brought in and saved Fisher's job two different times after 0-6 starts. The problems with VY have never been on the field issues, they've always been issues between Fisher and VY. Fisher says one thing, the media repeats it so that automatically makes it fact.

    VY suicide attempt = Came from Jeff Fisher

    VY reportedly left his home in Nashville and was upset on a Monday afternoon. He left his phone at home and his mother was worried about him, so she called Fisher. Fisher then made it into something that it wasn't. VY was at a friends house watching Monday Night Football.

    Either way, VY isn't problem free. He's made mistakes and I'm not completely taking up for him. I know he's had his issues. He has a temper, no doubt. But, he is a good Quarterback. He get's better all the time and is one of the few QB's available right now that could have the ability to make a SuperBowl run within the next year or so. Kyle Orton isn't a Superbowl QB, and never will be.

    VY is a playmaker, he makes big plays at the right times. He makes the game exciting to watch. He will get his chance to play somewhere and I have confidence that it'll be a good thing for him. I do believe the problems he had in TN were about 80% Fisher.

    I would love to see VY come to the Phins and make something positive happen with this team. It's been too long.
