Vince Young’s Hands Tied by Norm Chow
I’m not putting words in anyone’s mouth, I’m just reading between the lines. Check out Vince Young discussing the difference between Norm Chow and Mike Heimerdinger, the Titans’ new offensive coordinator:
Vince Young certainly harped on a few themes there, saying Heimerdinger’s more aggressive and unpredictable. VY also makes it clear that under Chow he couldn’t run as much nor throw the ball downfield too much. Obviously I’m not in the Titans film room or huddle, but I can tell you a few things. For one, Chow’s track record is pretty legit. Secondly, running only lasts for so long for QBs in the NFL. I’m sure VY would have run more if he didn’t have the quad and leg injuries last year. And let’s not forget that when you run, you subject yourself to lots of punishment from the defense, not exactly something to help one’s chances at longevity. In other words, I’m not ready to join VY’s party in knocking down Chow.
