Vince Young Peeved At Fitz

June 28th, 2017

Calls out Bucs backup.

Vince Young cannot believe it.

The former first round bust of a quarterback is unemployed and just cannot understand why. He looks around the NFL and sees slop everywhere. Yet he cannot get an invite to underwear football much less a training camp.

In an article typed by Greg Bishop of, Young was reminded of NFL quarterbacks collecting a paycheck, like Blaine Gabbert, for example, and Young went off. In particular, he simply cannot believe Bucs backup Ryan Fitzpatrick is gainfully employed but Young cannot find a job.

The more Young talks, though, the less clear it is how far along he is in this transformation. Occasionally he sounds like the young man some of his old coaches describe as lacking self-awareness, as when he explains that he’s applied to trademark the phrase Make Vince Great Again. He says he sent a text message to the pregnant Serena Williams joking about how “that should be my baby.” Even when he exposes his vulnerabilities, revealing that he’s barely watched any football since he retired, he can’t help but say, “I’d see a quarterback and be like, Dude is garbage, and I’m over here in the kitchen cooking turkey necks!?” He’s reminded that the Cardinals recently signed Blaine Gabbert, a first-round failure who never achieved Young’s success, and he pounces: “Exactly. I hate to name-drop, but [Ryan] Fitzpatrick is still playing!? He leads the league in interceptions, and he’s still f—— getting paid? I mean, what the f— is going on?” (Fitzpatrick was third in picks last year, but Young has a point.)

Bishop’s story is just wild. It also goes deep into the ugly relationship between Jeff Fisher and Young. Fisher never wanted Young and the bond between the two didn’t get much better. But it also shows that Young at times might not be playing with a full deck.

Bishop describes how when Fisher decided to start Young, he told the former Longhorn he was getting the “keys to the Hummer,” and Young honestly thought he was getting a new ride.

Thank goodness Fitz is the backup to America’s Quarterback, Pro Bowler Jameis Winston.

    anyone who has ever had the misfortune of a 2 second conversation with Vince Young understands exactly why he is out of the league. there might not be a dumber human being on planet earth.

  2. Mick Says:

    Call us back Young when you can find a starting job in Canada. If you can’t even start in the CFL you can’t backup in the NFL

  3. bucsfaninchina Says:

    Pretty sad story, imo. 34 years old and can only look back at a career wasted. Hope when he writes his book he gives Jeff Fisher the drag through the dirt he truly deserves.

    damn vince….is it that bad?….I thought josh freeman was a sad story but damn….GO BUCS!!!!

  5. Piratic Says:

    I’m peeved that is the only website that crashes Puffin.

  6. Jason Says:

    Vince Young needs a severe reality check. Now I don’t know the story that happened with the Titans but he was picked up by the Eagles, Bills, Packers and Browns. All those teams agreed unanimously agreed that he wasn’t good enough to be a back up.

  7. The Buc Realist Says:

    Jfro-6pak is not a sad story, If something happened to him that was out of his control, then yes it would have been!!!! But he was the one that did not work hard, Jfro-6pak was the one that did not take his job seriously!!!!! He was the piece of garbage that lied and tried to blame everything else for his issues and problems!!!!! all these guys looking in wondering what happened!!!! Well work hard, be part of the team!!! Help the team, not just yourself!!!!!!!!!!

    The trash always gets taken out!!!!!!

    GO Bucs!!!!!!!!!!!!

  8. mark2001 Says:

    Licht…what are you thinking….you could have signed Vince or maybe even Johnny football as our backup QB. Instead, you sign Fitz. Oh well.

  9. Lunchbox Says:

    He doesn’t understand. Could have something to do with that 6 you got on the Wonderlic.

  10. The Real Malloy Says:

    I’ll take Fitzy over this bum any day of the week, and twice on sundays.

  11. 813bucboi Says:

    freeman was indeed a sad story….a person not being mature enough to realize the potential and talent he had is sad….and whats even more worse is that josh didnt have the supporting cast to help him get his career/life back on the right track….very sad story….GO BUCS!!!!

  12. The Buc Realist Says:

    No, sad is when someone has talent but never gets “the chance” !!!!!!!!! But people that get that chance and self destruct and lie and won’t listen to those trying to help and instead of listen to those “others” is not said!!!!!! No one should be said when that garbage truck comes and hauls away the trash!!!!!!!

    Is 1 Buc a mental health facility???? Is it a drug treatment program???? Do the Glazers need to hire counselors and social workers???????

    No sympathy for the liar that tried to bring down everything around him!!!!!!
    Good riddance!!!!!

  13. BigHogHaynes Says:

    Nobody ever says coach toes on the line had a lot to do with Freeman but some of us know the truths for Vince knows the truth!!

  14. mark2001 Says:

    If the last years since Gruden and Dom left eventually has put us in a place with Koetter, Licht, Jameis, etc.., it just might be worth all the misery much of the last decade . After all, we made it through the later 80’s and most of the 90’s…to eventually get to the promised land. We Bucs fans, if nothing else, have had to have the patience of Job.

  15. tmaxcon Says:


    your boy vince can not spell his own name even if your daddy trump gave him 4 letters. vince young is out of the league because he is flat out stupid and incapable of learning a play book. stop with your implied race BS…7 more years of daddy trump. get used to it bighog.. Personal Responsibility and Accountability coming back to the US… No more free rides.

  16. BigMacAttack Says:

    Open mouth, insert foot, and continue to waste his millions instead of investing in a real future. A dreamer with minimal intelligence or drive is on the road to depression.

  17. Pick6 Says:

    how gabbert is employed is kinda mystifying, but it’s easy to understand why guys like vince young and kaepernick are passed over as backup QBs in favor of lesser talents before you ever get into personality, intellect, politics, and whatever else happens outside the lines. if you are a dual threat QB, your team is running a totally different scheme to get the most out of you. It’s alot easier to regress into traditional dropback football if your dual threat QB goes down than it is to shift into sandlot mode to accommodate your dual threat backup if your pocket passer QB goes down.

    Nobody is making scheme concessions to accommodate a backup QB. Fitzpatrick, limited as he is, can run every playbook in the NFL with some degree of effectiveness. As soon as you tell VY or Kaep that his linemen need him to stand in one spot, read the field and throw a guy open, you’ve turned him into a lesser player than Ryan Fitzpatrick.

  18. LakeLandBuc Says:

    The NFL is loaded with garbage QBs, look at these teams roster. Guys like Ryan Fitzpatrick and Josh McCown are bums, getting paid to carry a clipboard. How many games will the Bucs win with Fitzpatrick at QB?..he’s 46-69-1 with garbage numbers. Jason Licht was a fool to sign this bum, go out and develop a young QB with potential. You can always get value, from a solid young backup QB. How much value would you get from a old, washed up piece of trash? smh

  19. unbelievable Says:

    Who would you have preferred for a backup Lakeland?

  20. BurgDweller Says:

    Not much in between Young’s ears. No surprise he is out of the league. If it wasn’t for social media, we would never hear from these busts to begin with.

  21. Steven007 Says:

    Not that I put all that much stock in this in general, but the Wonderlic has some relevance when it comes to the QB position (and OL – center mostly – to a lesser extent). Vince Young scored a 6. Which is basically retarded. Our guy Fitz scored a 48. Eight times higher than Young! Most NFL teams set a guideline of mid to upper 20’s for QB’s. This alludes to an ability to quickly process data and solve problems. Young’s 6 allows him to successfully, one presumes, cook turkey necks. It did not allow him, even with supreme physical talent to succeed in the NFL.

  22. Pickgrin Says:

    “Vince Young scored a 6. Which is basically retarded. Our guy Fitz scored a 48.”

    Literal LOL there Steven. Good stuff – I was going to make a similar point about Harvard graduate Fitzpatrick’s Wonderlic score. Its the 3rd highest ever recorded by an NFL prospect.

    Fitz was working with total garbage in NY last year considering their team as a whole.

    If needed – He will be a fine game manager and give this team a good chance to win games if called upon to play meaningful football in 2017.

    Most importantly though – Fitz’ intelligence, perspectives and experience having started 116 games in the NFL will be an absolute plus towards assisting Jameis Winston’s development this year.

  23. Buc4Lyfe79 Says:

    Vince Young…poster boy for a sad sad generation that were handed trophies to exult their losing an activity, which only fueled their dilusions of being entitled. To think we’re not even a full 3 qrtrs of a century removed from a generation of 16-18 yr olds willingly marching to their deaths while storming the beaches of Normandy, to this present generation of college “kids” having emotional breakdowns and needing “safezones” because their Alinskynite leader lost an election.

  24. Tampabaybucfan Says:

    This is all about Ryan Griffin……the Bucs ate up a roster spot for two years…..they have obviously lost all confidence in him going forward.

    As for Fitz…..he’ll do like any other has been…..that’s what most backups are…..there really is no way to develop a younger QB to back up a younger QB who will forever be a starter.
    I look forward to us signing the backup dujour next year….and it won’t be Vince Young… sad and small he is to have to tear someone down to try to elevate himself…..and, it didn’t work, Vince.

  25. Love and Warrick Dunn Says:

    All these flavors, and you chose to be salty.

    VW needs to just live the life of a hero in Austin, collecting checks from UT and big $ boosters.

    He’s not exactly the sharpest tool in the shed. Without that natty to live off of, it could be much worse.

  26. biff barker Says:

    The “Keys to the Hummer” story pretty much says it all about this tool.

  27. tmaxcon Says:

    Love and Warrick Dunn

    I spend a ton of time in Austin. Vince Young has burnt that bridge. His restaurant was a failure etc… etc… Rickey Williams gets more love than Vince. He will always have a modest payday doing UT appearances but the dude has blew it with all the big money guys. he’s talented athlete until he opens his mouth.

  28. RustyRhinos Says:

    “Personal Responsibility and Accountability coming back to the US… No more free rides” When will all this start Tmax? After the current administration heads out? Crazy talk.

  29. BigHogHaynes Says:

    Tmaxcon/ there is no need for me to imply….your a no nonsense, no soft serve type of guy, look around the league and what is implied will quickly become your truth!

  30. TouchDownTampaBay Says:

    Lol, Rusty. I can only assume that Tmax gets his political info from Trump’s twitter feed. Anyone paying attention has to have concerns about this him. His incompetence astounds me even though I knew it was going to be bad before it even started. I was hoping for all of our sakes it wouldn’t be, but I never imagined it was going to be this bad.

  31. Elivs in STL Says:

    Thats the difference between a score of 48/50 for Fitz and 6/50 for Vince… and they say the Wonderlic test doesn’t matter! Fitz went to Harvard and Vince can’t read… stay in school kids!

  32. Lamarcus Says:

    Fitz> young

  33. Garv Says:

    I’m afraid that Vince has just made a fool of himself. Again. That’s the story here, nothing more..
