Vince is too Young to lead

The Tennessee Titans are still waiting for Vince Young to show the kind of maturity and leadership they can count on.

This isn’t a new conversation concerning Young, either. One of the things I¬†immediately remembered was calling the opening game of the 2008 season in which Young refused to finish the game. There have been a number of other indicators regarding Young, including when he revealed he had pondered retirement.

Young’s altercation in a Dallas strip club is clear evidence of his need for further growth and development, both on and off the field.

It’s really as simple as that.

After a problematic 2008, Young rebounded with a redemptive 2009 season. Now, entering 2010, both the coaching staff and his teammates are waiting to see if Young can grow into a mature leader who they can follow into an era of consistent success. Young was already in a position where he could ill-afford to take another hit to his off-the-field persona, and this only adds to the pressure. This latest incident is indeed a setback in Young’s continued attempt to win the confidence of the organization.

The wait is still on.
