Tennessee Titans quarterback Vince Young has started only 39 games in his four-year NFL career, and he still has thrown more interceptions (39) than touchdown passes (32). But Young thinks he’s on a path toward greatness.
“I always have to prove something, but I always look for that challenge,” Young told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean. “I’ve said it before and I mean it — I want to be in the Hall of Fame one day and right now I am going to keep working. . . . I want to continue to use the things people say I can’t do to use as motivation to show the world Vince is still working and staying strong.”
That’s an awfully lofty goal for a player who started 2009 on the bench and spent almost all of 2008 there. But Young said he’s ready to build on what he accomplished after entering the starting lineup in October.
“A lot is expected of me, I know that. I embrace it,” he said. “I’ve faced some things in my four years that passed, and now I feel like I am more at home. I paid my dues and now I feel I can say a little bit more, do a little bit more. A lot of the faces are gone from before, veterans who I looked to. Now some guys have to step up, and I am willing to do my part, and whatever it takes.”
