Vince Young tops topic of conversation around town


NASHVILLE, Tenn. – A popular topic of conversation Monday was how Vince Young reacted after Sunday's overtime loss to the Redskins.

Young left the game during the third quarter with a thumb injury and later became upset when Coach Fisher did not put him back into the game.

"Vince Young tried to play but he just has a bad attitude," Jennifer Anderson told a friend Monday while eating lunch at Gabby's Burgers and Fries in south Nashville.  "You would think he would be a lot more of a competitor and just try to put a little more heart into it."

She added, "At the end of the game he decided he didn't want to be part of the Titans team any more so he threw his shoulder pads into the stadium, walked to the locker room, changed and then left."

At the restaurant's lunch counter, Brian Westerman also discussed the incident with his friends.

"He's got to act like a man and take responsibility," he said.  "He can't just cry and get off the field every time we boo him."

Ty Walls told his buddy Young's response.

"He told Fisher he was not walking out on his team, he was walking out on his coach," he said.

"You know, if one of my employees smarted off to me like that, you just can't allow it.  You just can't," said Doug Havron, owner of Gabby's Burgers and Fries.

With a little sarcasm, Westerman chimed in from his seat at the counter, "But he apologized via Twitter so it's okay."

Havron said most of his customers think Young did not handle Sunday's situation very well.

"When you make that kind of money, you just keep your mouth shut and do what your boss tells you to do and I think most people are expecting Vince to go and I don't see really were Jeff Fisher has a choice in the matter," he said.

During Monday afternoon's press conference, Coach Fisher announced that Young will be placed on injured reserve because of his injured thumb and would not play the rest of the season.
