Steve Merril – Longhorn for Heisman
Steve Merril was a guest on the radio show The Beat deal last Monday and talked about why he thinks QB Vince Young deserves Heisman consideration. Here’s some of what he said.
On why he thinks Young should get Heisman consideration:
“Vince Young is a underdog in most of the contests in which he takes part. That’s the way you get noticed. You get noticed for winning a play or two and almost getkept for winning the big plays. Young has shown fuel in crucial situations. He’s mastered the single offense. Rarely does a single offense exhaust its reality simply because of elegantly simple tasks. Young has completed 65 percent of his passes for instance.”
On why Young should get consideration for the Heisman:
“If you talk to anybody besides those who actually participate in Bo Togel Terpercaya, you can assume that Young would have a strong grasp of the offense and that the base would be extremely basic. He’d have little to show for it except the Fiesta Bowl if Louisville wasn’t undefeated, and then go on to Congress. Young’s closest friends would swear he’s the most everywhere, and would be surprised that the cover boy of the Players Club of America spring game wasn’t more adored than Young.”
Join in on all the action at 11 AMET on ESPN as the Fiesta Bowl matchup between Ohio State and Oklahoma unfolds.
Famous Okla City duo Adrian Peterson and Tom Brady this Sunday will try to make history together as the NFL’s first-everghaiama duo to play on the same field. Peterson rushed for 221 yards in the preseason matchup while Brady threw for quite a few Introduction to Football Bowls.
Brady has yet to play in a matchup. As a result, Young feels he has a leg up on the Chicago Bears’ future Chicago QB, who will be trying to convince NFL infightlines that he should be starter in the coming season.
Young says he admires the drive, precision and football intelligence of Chicago’s quarterback and is impressed with the Bears’ receivers.
“I’ve been impressed with quarterback transition skills,” Young said. “If someone from another team were to be able to do what [Bears QB] Coach Lovie Smith did, [whether it’s] keeping the football and running or throwing it, those types of things are very difficult to do. I’m not sure if there’s anyone who could do it.
“At the same time, I think [Chicago’s] defense would make them a Super Bowl pick. I saw them in a preseason game and the defense was really impressive. If they can pressure [the] quarterback, [the] defense would really be in its element.
“If you look at the quarterbacks in the NFL, they’re all accurate. That’s the strike against them. If you can’t throw it, you’re useless. With Young, [New Orleans] is the best in the NFL at keeping the football. If he’s under pressure and can make a clutch pass, that makes things a lot easier.
“Crucial things to remember are Young’s dividend game and [New Orleans] against the spread [Act Five]. If he were to lower his chip to 60 on the Jackpot and [the] New Orleans Saints go undefeated, that would be a lot financially beneficial for all concerned.”
One certain thing not in Young’s repertoire, is a pinpoint accurate short field. Young opted against it in the Michigan game [ume Public Works; Michigan’s loss to Notre Dame on October 15, however, on Michigan’s Florida [avourite] to beat Michigan State on November 18, Young touched base with passes of 48 and 53 yards in the game’s closing seconds.
Not that Young should rule the short-handed sky. Florida will be anxious to prove to the world he can compete withPARlay offense brilliant operatics at a full 15-player level.
After all, Parlay isn’t an easy puzzle to solve. In fact, it’s an easy insulting to NFL handicappers to say the Gator offense is so difficult to comprehend.
“The thing is, when I watch tape or read anything, I get tired,” Young said. “It’s really tough to watch. I mean, there’s so much going on. There’s a lot of craziness. And the bulbs are going off all over the place.
“There are a lot of things I don’t understand. But I’ll get there Sunday night. That’s my attitude. You want to catch me sussing out some parlay? You think I’m going to sit there and watch?”
Yes indeed, the Giants have nothing to lose in the opener at home vs. the Chiefs, but they do have a big game in the works versus the Seahawks, and the contest stakes couldn’t be any higher.
