Vince Young to the Eagles

All indications are that Vince Young and the Philadelphia Eagles have reached a deal for a one year contract, just one day after he was released by the Tennessee Titans (who are now dead to me).

Not bad considering the rumors yesterday that the market for Vince was drying up. It seems a whisper campaign by Jeff Fisher can only do so much.

In any case, I’m conflicted on this deal.

On the one hand, it could be a great deal for Vince. Andy Reid is a great quarterbacks coach, and Vince fits their system well. Michael Vick can show Vince something about keeping your mouth shut and working hard, so it could be good for Vince to hold the clipboard for Vick for a while.

Plus, Vick almost never makes it an entire season without injury, so Vince will probably get his chance to play.

On the other hand, I don’t like the idea of wishing failure on Vince when he plays my Cowboys twice a season.

The net-net is, it’s probably a good situation for Vince, and possible the best one he could expect. But it’s bitter sweet for those of us Longhorn-Cowboy fans.
