Vince Young is 31-19 as a starter, but he can't seem to get back into the NFL. Sure, his completion percentage is below 60 percent, and sure, he's thrown a few more interceptions than touchdowns, but for a number of years, the Titans were a winning team with him behind center. The Packers will reportedly work Young out on Monday -- they've got a (rather famous) starter already, but given that QBs can be lost for a season in an instant, having an experienced backup is never a bad idea. Of course, Young has to show that his long layoff hasn't sapped him of his skills as a playmaker.
Here's a sampling of what readers had to say in our Facebook conversation on the story:

The Eagles' dream season took another hard left turn into the realm of dystopian night terrors Thursday, as they were embarrassed by the Seahawks in a 31-14 laugher. Philadelphia is 4-8 and at the very bottom of the NFC East, which has led some to believe that Andy Reid's job is in jeopardy. Reid's lengthy tenure with the Eagles has seen a lot of regular-season success contrasted with an equal amount of playoff failure, so will this disaster of a season claim him as a casualty?
Who's to blame?
Andy Reid may take a lot of the heat, but the Eagles as a whole have drastically underperformed this season.
Vick the answer?
Michael Vick wasn't able to continue his 2010 success before his injury this season, leaving Vince Young to attempt to pick up the pieces.
