Vince Young Has Onion Skin

I didn’t say that Vince Young had onion skin, Titans broadcaster, Frank Wycheck did.

And before you say he was wrong, Young’s mother backed it up, telling the Tennessean Vince needs some love.   Young suffered a knee injury opening day and was booed by his home crowd.

Felicia Young said her son has grown weary of all the negativity he faces as an NFL star. On Monday, he indicated to those around him he didn’t want to play football any more.

“Vince has gone through a whole lot as a young person,” Felicia Young said. “And I think he has done pretty well up to this point. But it is hard, all he is going through right now. He’s hurting inside and out.

“But he will be fine if people are prayerful and help my baby boy out. He is a young man. He just needs a lot of love and support.”

I’m sorry.  This is the NFL.  You will get booed as a young quarterback.  Troy Aikman got booed.  Warren Moon, Donovan McNabb and Drew Brees know the feeling.  Phil Simms and Eli Manning can write a book on it.  John Elways had every move he made documented in Denver upon arrival. 

There is talk Vince Young may not return to the team because he can’t handle the adversity

“What would you think, if you were tired of being ridiculed and persecuted and talked about and not being treated very well, what would you do? What kind of decision would you make?” Felicia Young said. “He may not want to deal with it (all), but you have to get to that point before you make that decision first.

“But we’re not talking about football right now. We’re talking about what would make him happy, and that is the most important thing.

“… You don’t want people to be hurting like he is. But it is a growing-up process, and he will eventually come out like gold no matter what. But Vince is going to be OK. We are just going to try and give him some space.”

It’s said to see Young can’t handle the heat that comes with playing the toughest position in sports.  There is a reason why the Titans paid him millions.  He has to stand up, no, make that grow up.  This is not Texas and Mack Brown can’t hide him or defend him from the fans.

Tony Romo’s “Mystery” Blonde Pics

Cowboys QB Tony Romo knows how to escape NFL defenders so IF he has to explain anything to Jessica Simspon about this cute blonde lady, he’ll have a good story.

Bang it here to see.

I remember back in the day when NOBODY cared what Romo did. 

 Now everybody with a camera wants to follow him around.   Somewhere in KC, Quincy Carter wishes he had stayed off the weed and kept his job as the Cowboys starting quarterback.

Romo-Simpson Break-Up?

Well, some of you wish for the breakup of Cowboys QB Tony Romo and “singer” Jessica Simpson.

I am not one of the haters.  I have fun with it, but I wish for them to be happy.  In love.  All that jazz.

BUT….the folks at say the romance could be over.  That Romo had a nice time in Chicago, despite that horrible rendition he sang of “Take Me Out To The Ballgame”.

If rumors are too be believed, Jessica Simpson and Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo are no longer dating.

According to, the football player spent a rowdy weekend in Chicago with several college friends where he allegedly admitted that he and Simpson had ended their relationship.

The rest of the story is here.

Cowboys Will Screw Up By Going On HBO

The Cowboys are about to screw up…BIG TIME.

Tomorrow the club will have a press conference to announce that HBO and NFL Films get another shot at reality TV with America’s Team.

Hard Knocks is the NFL’s attempt at trying to “go behind” the scenes at training camp.

That’s it Jerry Jones, make it a big circus again. This is the type of move that will sink the 2008 season. Name a team that has won a championship doing this?

The Cowboys looked like slappies in 2002 when they did Hard Knocks in San Antonio.

Jerry Jones was on TV cutting players. Dave Campo looked silly playing with Shamu at Sea World and rookie wide receiver Randal Williams never lived down a comment from his mother in which she described reasons why she didn’t want him running on the streets of New York City as a boy, one was “he could be gay”.

Then quarterback Chad Hutchinson was playing his guitar with teammate Richmond Flowers in their room. Both guys looked corny and proved they couldn’t play a lick.

After going 5-11 some players felt teammates were “acting” for the camera. That alone is a reason to tell NFL Films and HBO “no thanks”. says, “Storylines the show is likely to focus on for this year’s version of the show include the hands-on approach of owner Jerry Jones, how rookie running back Felix Jones adjusts to his first camp, restricted free agent running back Marion Barber’s contract negotiations and the relationship between wide receiverTerrell Owens and quarterback Tony Romo.”

I don’t see how head coach Wade Phillips will look good in this. Campo looked for Boo Boo the fool in the 2002 series.

Does quarterback Tony Romo need anymore cameras in his face? Does Pacman Jones need to have camera following him to the Spearmint Rhino strip club in Oxnard after practice?

I had high hopes for this group, not anymore.

Watch Matt Mosley Of Talk Cowboys Draft
