Young saying right things

TORONTO - Vince Young finally showed some maturity Thursday. If he'd used it a couple of weeks ago he might not have needed to use it now.

Young thanked Titan's owner Bud Adams and head coach Jeff Fisher for five years as a member of the Tennessee Titans.

But it came after he blew up at his coach, stormed from the dressing room, ultimately was told not to return for the rest of the season and finally, Wednesday, was informed he will be cut or traded.

Young thanked them for a chance to win the Super Bowl but he also told the Tennessean newspaper that the main reason behind his frustrations was that he never felt fully trusted by Fisher.

"I have nothing against Jeff Fisher. I just wish he would have trusted me a little more. That was the only issue," young told the Tennessean. "I didn't feel like (Jeff) trusted me. In the five years I was there, I was always looking over my shoulder."

Young's emotional outburst after a November loss to the Redskins -- in which Young cursed at Fisher and stormed out of the locker room -- put his future with the Titans in question. He was a favourite of Adams but "you ain't gonna step on the coach's toes like that in front of people," linebacker Bo Scaife said Wednesday night. "It don't work like that."

Scaife and many teammates were philosophical about the decision. "I think it's probably what's best for him," Scaife said. "Some things you might not be able to fix, so you just move on."
