    I think Hodge is saying that because he believes in taking QBs late ala Tom Brady, and developing them, he feels you get better value for them later than in the top 15

    I think HOdge is talking about Leinart lacking the necessary arm strength to get the necessary velocity to fit the ball into tight spaces, hence the 8 inches WRs have in seperation in the NFL as opposed to the 8 feet in college comment, if true, it's a valid knock on a QB

    There has never been a sports "journalist" that I respected less or disdained more than Homer Hoge-and that includes Theisman. How he has a job anywhere, much less a national brand such as ESPN is a testament to work-place corruption, who you know-ism, and the current state of accepted mediocrity in society.

    This guy is right on the money. This is a classic smokescreen to prevent teams from trying to jump the Titans by trading with the Saints. If the Titans act like they are thinking of taking Young, Linehart might fall to them. Classic smokescreen.

    That would set the franchise back five to six years. Vince Young will be a bust. Mark my words, right click, cut, and file. Check back in five years. He'll be sitting in an apartment playing Madden 2011 with Akili Smith and Cade McCown.

    Hoge is first round talent in the idiot draft. In fact it is a dead tie to see who would be picked number 1 between him and Theisman for the first overall pick. Every time one of those guys open up their mouth they manage to out due each other in stupid remarks.

    The fact that you use Bledsoe's quote tells me that you and Hoge are in the same rut. Steve McNair went to a much smaller school than Young and has done just fine. Back five years, the Titans have been stuck in neutral for the last five years and the team already has a better supporting cast than what Vince had at UT. Vince is indeed a thoroughbred athlete who can make those around him better no what position he plays. I'll bet that in five years, it will be Cutler, that will be on the scrap heap with his 11 wins in 4 years. People will be backtracking off that 'the next Farve talk' quicker than lightning.
