Vince Young impostor doesn’t look like Vince Young

The Prince George’s County Police Department has released the mug shot of Stephan Pittman, the man who was arrested on felony fraud charges today for impersonating Eagles backup quarterback Vince Young.

Seeing his mug shot, I can only assume Pittman was not a very successful Vince Young impersonator.

The balding Pittman is obviously older than the 28-year-old Young, and in a video of Pittman being brought into custody he looks shorter and pudgier than the 6-foot-5, 232-pound Young.

Prior to Pittman’s arrest, Young said his impostor had received money from people who believed they were doing business with the real Vince Young, and that the impostor had taken pictures with children claiming to be the real Vince Young. Presumably none of the people who thought he was the real Vince Young have ever seen the real Vince Young.

Pittman is the second person in recent years to be arrested for impersonating a well-known NFL quarterback. The previous such impostor, a man named Brian Jackson, looked nothing like the quarterback he was impersonating, Ben Roethlisberger. Apparently it never occurs to these guys that it’s easier to get away with impersonating someone if you actually look like him.

    why would anyone want to impersonate vince young??????

  3. tallguyme says: Sep 23, 2011 8:35 PM

    what’s the big deal? Vince Young himself has been impersonating a first round QB for years.

  4. favreforever says: Sep 23, 2011 8:42 PM

    But he does have the sidearm delivery that makes it look like he is putting the shot. He also had the mumble down pitch perfect.

    He must have been tricking little white kids.

  6. Slim Charles says: Sep 23, 2011 8:45 PM

    Wow, that is as bad as the Donovan McNabb/Tiger Woods impersonator from It’s Always Sunny in Philadelphia

  7. jimnaizeeum says: Sep 23, 2011 8:49 PM

    Looks to Old to be Young

  8. favreforever says: Sep 23, 2011 8:58 PM

    Pittman drew in the marks through his

    (not)VINCE YOUNG website and Twitter account.

    I think it does look like him.

    How would those idiots in PG slurping on Pittman know what Young looks like?
    Hard to tell what Young really looks like when…
    #1) He wears a helmet when he is at work.
    #2) Fog-like clouds of smoke between the slurper and the TV.

    Just goes to show that while no one has ever gotten poor betting on people’s idiocy, many have gone to jail.

  12. prior0knowledge says: Sep 23, 2011 9:34 PM

    hey, phillybirds, what kind of a**h*** ra***t comment is that?

  13. jfinn5 says: Sep 23, 2011 9:52 PM

    Did he hurt his finger nail in the mug shot?

  14. btwicey says: Sep 23, 2011 9:54 PM

    Hahahahaha classic

  15. slickmarine says: Sep 23, 2011 9:57 PM

    I’m with you, eagles… there is a faint resemblance. Better than Big Ben’s copycat!

  16. tnsteve says: Sep 23, 2011 10:25 PM

    Maybe I’m tired, but he looks like a cross between Donovan McNabb and Malcom Jabbar-Warner from the Cosby Show…

  17. trbowman says: Sep 23, 2011 10:29 PM

    “Hey I am an NFL quarterback, will you sleep with me now?”

  18. turk2875 says: Sep 23, 2011 10:31 PM

    Well…..they both have eyes, and a nose. Close enough.

  19. footballmaven says: Sep 23, 2011 10:42 PM

    …Guy would’ve had a better shot pulling it off if he said he was Jamarcus Russell….

  20. boswivel says: Sep 23, 2011 10:54 PM

    If you are at all surprised by this, then you have never been to PG County, MD. And that’s all I have to say about that.

  21. boswivel says: Sep 23, 2011 11:02 PM

    I’m very confused how this guy took pics with “children claiming to be the real Vince Young.”

    My gosh it’s infecting our children!

  22. dude317 says: Sep 23, 2011 11:08 PM

    But the NFL keeps the helmets on guys during the game. It is all about the team and the NFL’s image. Outside of Manning and Brady, most people couldn’t tell who is a player and who isn’t. So, looking like the person isn’t as big a deal as you might think.

  23. cereal blogger says: Sep 23, 2011 11:13 PM

    What is his wonderlic score ?

  24. broncotis3000 says: Sep 23, 2011 11:35 PM

    Funny,This guy looks more like Michael Pittman…former RB for Tampa and Denver..maybe he should have tried that instead..

  25. joelfrench5 says: Sep 24, 2011 12:04 AM

    he looks NOTHING like Vince Young

  26. favreforever says: Sep 24, 2011 1:04 AM

    Pittman thought Vince Young was a piece of cake after all those years trying to make it as an Elvis impersonator.

  27. descendency says: Sep 24, 2011 1:05 AM

    I bet it’d be a bit more convincing if he had a helmet on.

    And maybe if he was crying on a sidelines when he hears people boo.

  28. zillabeast says: Sep 24, 2011 4:10 AM

    Looks like Vince to me. For real.

  29. rhymeswithpunt says: Sep 24, 2011 4:34 AM

    Why is JaMarcus Russell impersonating Vince Young?

  30. obamareallysucks says: Sep 24, 2011 8:10 AM

    they do raise them stupid in PiG County, MD. I wonder why?

  31. melikefootball says: Sep 24, 2011 9:26 AM

    WOW,WOW,WOW and more WOW. Looks like another mind vaction on Vince’s part.

  32. Derty Ernie says: Sep 24, 2011 10:06 AM

    No no no! Stop! Did this guy act like a cry baby and blaime everyone else for his problems? If the answer is yes, then he did a great job of impersonated Young.

  33. prmpft says: Sep 24, 2011 10:22 AM

    …meaning he doesn’t have that empty headed, glassy eyed, pouty look…

  34. realitypolice says: Sep 24, 2011 11:15 AM

    Seeing his mug shot, I can only assume Pittman was not a very successful Vince Young impersonator.

    Big Ben’s impostor looked nothing like him, either.

    The goal of these guys isn’t to convince hardcore football fans like you and I that they are who they say they are, but to convince people who would only recognize the name that they are.

    What football fan would be believe that someone who plays for the Philadelphia Eagles would be in the DC area in the middle of the season?

  35. mwcarolina says: Sep 24, 2011 11:27 AM

    kinda looks like him, except the nose and i think that this guy is more overweight than Vince.

    I write: Well, he looks more like Vince Young than me. I’m black and I have a full head of hair.

    MDS writes: “Presumably none of the people who thought he was the real Vince Young have ever seen the real Vince Young.”

    I write: you’re being just a little overdetermining, aren’t you? I think any casual football fan from a place besides the cities where he has played, who has seen photos of Vince Young without studying them closely could easily make the mistake.

  37. oldbyrd says: Sep 24, 2011 12:55 PM

    He is also getting OLD sitting on the bench

  38. dspohn55 says: Sep 24, 2011 1:03 PM

    Okay Michael, how many references to the fact that he doesn’t really look like VY can you fit into your article? We get it

  39. razedeyebrow says: Sep 24, 2011 1:29 PM

    They all look alike to me.

    (Can I get my money back now?)

  40. backindasaddle says: Sep 24, 2011 1:34 PM

    This clown should have been arrested for even wanting to impersonate Vince Young. I mean seriously…..are you really aspiring to be like that infantile mental case?

  41. jessethegreat says: Sep 24, 2011 1:39 PM

    That’s just a future pic of what Vince will look like in 2 years when he’s out of football

  42. whatswiththehate says: Sep 24, 2011 1:45 PM

    I remember reading on a different site someone posting that Cam looks like VY…One can see why this man was getting away with his crime.SMH
