Redskins should say no to Vince Young

Vince Young is now “rumored” to be considered to land in Washington.  This “talk” has been circulating on the internet as of late and I’d like to chime in before this becomes as useful as a two-way pager a car phone.

But here is my stance as far as Vince Young to DC – No! And that’s an empathetical “No!” from me.  A good buddy of mine who does great work over at BurgundyBlog.com (formerly BroodingBurgundy.com) tweeted this:

Now BurgundyBlog.com is one of the finest Redskin blogs out there and the only blog I will endorse by name, but I totally disagree with him on this one.  In my opinion, there are too many character issues there and though America is all about second chances, the Redskins are too preoccupied with their own issues.  They aren’t a New England Patriots-type team that can mold cast offs into “Spartan Men” of sound mind and body.  They are the Redskins who benched our starting quarterback through the media (kind of) days before our match with Dallas.  They are the same Redskins who file lawsuits with small city papers.  If the draft tells us anything, it says they  are beginning to head in the right path.

If the Redskins are to stay on that path, they need to clean up their own mess and mind their own business and not take in cast offs just yet.  Otherwise, I am not so optimistic and would agree with Cindy Boren…
