Vince Young wanted to get a few things off his chest on Wednesday; first and foremost that all the controversy surrounding him — specifically his famous meltdown during Week 1 — was largely a creation of the media. Oh, and also that he's a humble guy. No, make that, a great, great humble guy.
“I feel like they’re writing my legacy,” Young said. “They’re writing my story. I’m a great guy, a great humble guy. I’ve done a whole lot in my career in just three years and for [the media] to do stuff like that to try to make me look bad for some reason — I don’t know why — but they’re just writing my legacy.” I know who I am, everyone knows who I am as a person. They know good and well, I ain’t trying to commit suicide or all that kind of crap. It was just a story everybody wanted to write. It was hot and everybody need to make their money, feed their viewers. I always get the bad end but I just brush that off and use that as motivation for myself.”
Young also said that there's no animosity between himself and starter Kerry Collins, whom he calls "5," and that he's been nothing but supportive of Collins. So, sounds like all is well with Vince Young. Nothing can possibly go wrong for him from here on out. Nope. [NBCSports] • Rookie Hazing Of Colt Brennan Brought To You By Antwaan Randle El.
