        Wow, that is pretty surprising. That Florio guy is a douche...all he does is mock him because he drank tequila at a party.

          He'd retire, then sign w/ a different team.

            As much as these rookies make...like what did he make 5 million in his first season?

            You can stretch that over a lifetime definately.

            Man I'm so lazy. I'd be the #1 pick, play after 2 years, then retire. You would have $15M in the bank and you are set for life.

              I'm not sure if I can blame him for at least stepping back and thinking, "What the hell am I doing?".

              Think about it. Even though he's getting obscene piles of cash, think about the pressure of the situation he was put in. He's expected to turn the franchise around. He's supposed to be their savior. I don't think I'd ultimately give in, but I can't say I wouldn't at least think, "****. What the hell am I doing here? I'm still a kid."

                Exactly. Being a pro football player, especially a QB, is extremely stressful. Once you have the money to live on for a lifetime, why else play if it is stressful?

                These players have so much money. You'd think some player one year would donate their season's salary to charity or something.

                  You can never have ''so much money''. 15 million can go quick.

                    Just ask Charles Barkley.

                      If I were him I'd still be considering retirement the way that front office refuses to get him any help.

                        Sitting around counting your money gets old fast, trust me. Gotta be doing something satisfying. These guys love football. They would play it even if it at minimum wage. The money is bonus.

                          Vince Young has to be one of my favorite athletes alive. Most QBs and pro football players wouldn't even admit that. I can't imagine what it would be like going from a 23-4 year old college kid, then in a couple months becoming the most speculated about and criticized QB in the league, but he's takin it like a man. props.

                          Also, who cares if he drank shirtless at a party? he 25 ****in years old.

                            Bottom line is whether you are Peyton Manning or Tom Brady, you are judged on winning."
                            That's because they already put up record numbers at the QB position. What else can they statistically do? They obviously belong at the position, now it's just about winning games. VY doesn't belong at the QB position that's why he shouldn't be judged on his defense winning games for him.

                              I don't think you can judge Vince Young because he played in a conservative offense throwing to terrible receivers while the Titans defense basically carried them the whole year.
