The Arizona Cardinals lost to the Seattle Seahawks so badly on Sunday that even Vince Young thinks he could help the team. The unemployed former NFL Offensive Rookie of the Year tweeted at Cardinals receiver Larry Fitzgerald toward the end of Arizona’s Week 14 58-0 blowout loss to ask him to put in the good word with his coaches. @larryfitzgerald you know I can help tell coach. — Vince Young (@VinceYoung) December 9, 2012 There are multiple aspects of this tweet that are just plain sad. First, it wasn’t that long ago when Young was helping the Tennessee Titans win games as a starting quarterback, so it’s still hard to believe that the former Texas legend is unemployed while guys like John Skelton and Ryan Lindley are. Second, does it get much lower than a once-great athlete begging for a job over Twitter? Third, the Cardinals are so pathetic right now — they turned the ball over eight times in the 58-0 loss and have lost nine in a row — that Young probably would be better than what...

  • Not only do I agree that Young could help the Cards, I've been saying that since Warner retired. The Anderson debacle called into question the ability for the front office to manage player personnel and it hasn't improved. The QB coach has sent both of these remaining QBs out to be thoroughly humiliated week after week. So now we are looking at QB replacement but serious coaching improvements. The only thing that can be said for not bringing Young onboard is that the offensive line was awful at the beginning of the season, and while still green, the experience will be beneficial. Vince - we want you here!
  • CALL VINCE YOUNG!!
