After Titans coach Jeff Fisher had harsh words for Vince Young Sunday, Young got his side of the story out through Adam Schefter of ESPN, telling Schefter that his actions were motivated by frustration that he wasn’t able to finish Sunday’s game.
“It was just an awkward situation,” Young said. “I just want to play football. I want to win games. I want to go to the Super Bowl. That’s it.”
Fisher and Young reportedly had a verbal altercation after the game, but Young is denying that he threw “half his uniform” into the stands after the game. He said he gave his jersey to a friend and tossed some souvenirs to fans, as he’s done before.
“I throw my shoes into the stands after every game, my hat into the stands after every game, my wristbands into the stands after every game,” Young said. “If it’s a problem, I’ll pay for my jersey.”
Young does admit, however, that he threw his shoulder pads into the stands.
But for Fisher, the problems go a lot deeper than just his jersey. By all appearances, Fisher is finished with Young, and there may not be anything Young can say to change that.
