Vince Young, the same player who threw twice as many interceptions as touchdowns in three starts with the Eagles last season, still believes he can lead a team to a Super Bowl title.
Young told KILT Radio in Houston that he still fashions himself as a starting quarterback in the NFL, one who can tutor a young quarterback and play for a championship.
Yeah definitely," he said, via "Always want to go in and compete for the starting job and the things that I put myself through to get better and better and to better myself as a quarterback, just waiting on that opportunity to get the chance to do that.The free agent said he has "a couple of teams" interested in his services and is open to competing for a starting job. In response to a question asking for his thoughts on what would qualify as a "good situation" for him, he offered:"A team that has a younger quarterback that I can definitely go in and compete for the starting job and just go in and help any way I can to make the team better. Be a team player and continue to work because there are a bunch of teams out there that are needing another quarterback to come in and be a leader for the team in order to go to the playoffs and lead them to the Super Bowl.In three games as a starter with the Eagles last season, Young completed 58.4 percent percent of his passes, averaged 288.6 yards passing and recorded a 2-to-1 interception-to-touchdown ratio. He threw eight picks and four TDs.Of course, he also led the Eagles to their 17-10 win over the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football in Week 11, prompting all sorts of over-the-top, tongue-in-cheek praise.Speaking of praise, according to Young, it was Eagles coach Andy Reid who gave him the confidence that he could still be a starter, telling Young he would "would love" for Vince to stay in Philadelphia, but that he's "not a backup quarterback."Young remains a free agent and will more than likely remain on the market until teams can survey their needs after the NFL draft later this month.Of course, if there's a team out there who would like Vince to mentor their young quarterback while he leads the franchise to the Super Bowl, they might just want to think about grabbing him now.E-mail Nick Menta at
