Vince Young In Dire Need Of Media Training

Illustration for article titled Vince Young In Dire Need Of Media Training

Vince Young should probably just take a vow of silence or hire a full-time transcriber to follow him around when he's talking to the media, because it appears he's having trouble translating his own words. Last week, Young apparently told writer Thomas George that he was considering retirement, but this week, he says, well, something else:

"Oh, my God. Oh, my God. I ain't never said I was going to quit football. There was a lot of stuff going on in my life, but football is not hard to me. Football is easy. All you have to do is be coachable and use your God-given talent. If it was a thought at all it was just a passing thought for a second.''

So, for the record, Vince Young did consider quitting football for exactly one second. Young, obviously frustrated, went on to tell the Tennessean reporter that he wishes he didn't have to be in the spotlight so much and could be able to handle things like another NFL player: "He wished he could be like Colts wide receiver Marvin Harrison, and just not talk to the media at all."

That's a well-timed namedrop.
