Fisher sings same tune about VY; is Peter King listening?

During today’s conference call with the Jacksonville Jaguars, Titans head coach Jeff Fisher made this statement when asked about the future of Vince Young:

“He’s eventually going to be our quarterback. He’s going to be the quarterback we drafted him to be. He’s doing well right now. I think the whole experience has been a very positive experience for him. He’s doing well on the practice field. He’s prepared to play if we need him.”

Coach Fish’s message about Young has been consistent. I’m inclined to trust him. Why? Here’s evidence.

When asked about the future of Kerry Collins after this season, Fisher said:

“That’s something we’ll address once the season is over.”

And, when asked if the same applied to Albert Haynesworth, Fisher said:

“Yeah, that’s obviously the case with that.”

Did you catch this, Peter King?

King, the esteemed columnist for Sports Illustrated, has been dissing Vince Young for weeks and campaigning on behalf of Kerry Collins, a player he speaks with regularly.

King’s commentary sunk to a new low after week five.  Here’s what he said about Young’s contract situation after week five:

Vince Young, the troubled one, has three years left on his contract. Next year, Young makes $2.16 million. In 2010 and 2011, Young will make a combined $24.5 million, if the Titans choose to keep him. They can cut him after 2009 and owe him nothing.

They can cut him after 2009 and owe him nothing.

Wow.

And you wonder why Vince Young doesn’t like the media?
