BUFFALO—Vince Young continues to cement himself as the second-most talked about backup QB in the NFL. That was Matt Leinart’s job for almost 24 hours and then Bills coach Chan Gailey decided to show his love and admiration for Young as soon as they got him in the building. At his first press conference with the local media, Young did absolutely nothing to stir the public peanut butter jar in regards to taking starter Ryan Fitzpatrick’s job. “I’m pretty much used to it. All you can do is come in and work. This league is crazy from injury wise, all kind of things. I’m not wishing that on him (Fitzpatrick). He’s our starting quarterback and I’m behind him 100%. The biggest thing is as a, not just at my position but any position on a football field, you have to be always ready because you never know what’s going to happen. If it’s staying in shape, if it’s extra studying, whatever they have you getting extra throws in on Tuesdays and all during the week, that’s the biggest thing about being a backup quarterback. You’ve got to stay ready because your number could get called any minute. That’s my biggest thing is and I learned that last year. I know how adjust to it this year so my whole thing is sitting in behind the scenes with Coach (David) Lee and trying to learn and try to filter in as much knowledge as I can get with this new playbook and terminology.” After lighting the “dream team” fire in Philadelphia last season, Young has learned to measure his words and keep his feelings somewhat close to his chest. As he discussed he feelings for where he is at this stage in his career, he was honest yet not offensive. Be sure to check out other great articles at Players View.

The art of BSing a press conference

This seems to be the offseason for press conferences in Buffalo. By my count, we've had 5 player conferences (Stevie Johnson, Mario Williams, Mark Anderson, Stephon Gilmore and Vince Young), not to mention Buddy Nix and Chan Gailey's multiple cameos.
