Cross Your Fingers Vince Young Never Has to Play for the Packers

The moment Graham Harrell was cut, I have to admit that I was surprised. Not because Harrell was no longer a member of the Packers. But because the word from 1265 Lombardi Ave. was that Vince Young would compete for the No. 2 job. The moment I heard that, I nearly choked on my ice water. Anybody that has watched a morsel of the waning moments of Packers preseason games the last two...
