Vince Young Assault: QB Cited In Dallas Strip Club Fight (VIDEO)
Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young was issued a Class C assault citation in Dallas Sunday, CBS 11 reports. According to the web site’s earlier reports, Young was the “prime suspect” in an altercation that left a victim suffering “bodily injury.” The AP reports that no arrests are planned.
The incident is said to have occurred at a Dallas strip club early Sunday morning after a man at the club insulted the University of Texas, Young’s alma mater.
Young was the third overall pick in the 2006 NFL Draft. He captured the AP’s Offensive Rookie of the Year award after entering the NFL, and he won eight of ten starts in his most recent season.
It is also possible that Young may soon be retroactively awarded the 2005 Heisman Trophy, college football’s highest honor, after original winner Reggie Bush was recently declared ineligible by the NCAA. The Heisman Trophy

This isn’t an example of VY’s talents or what he can do with the football for the Titans, but again, it reminds us that some players get it when it comes to acting like a pro—and some just don’t.
Very simple here. Young may be able to do things athletically that we haven’t seen from a quarterback’s perspective, but this has nothing to do with that. Instead, we are talking about leadership—or a lack thereof.
Look at it this way: do we see similar stories about Donovan McNabb, Peyton Manning, Drew Brees, Tom Brady, etc.? These are the players we think about when we discuss “franchise guys.” And that includes how they treat the game and their jobs.
Is it time to start questioning Vince Young as a pro QB?
We can all agree that quarterbacks in this league are held to a different standard, or put onto a different stage when it comes to how we perceive them as players. You can call it unfair, or judgmental, but that is life in the NFL when you become the face of the franchise.
Part of the job.
