Vince Young takes advantage of opportunity vs. Seahawks

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- Vince Young still feels way behind the rest of the Green Bay Packers' quarterbacks. Less than three weeks after joining the team, that's understandable.

Vince Young Makes a Big Push for the No. 2 Job in Green Bay

When Vince Young was picked up by the Green Bay Packers fans in Austin were pretty darn happy that one of their favorite sons was getting another chance.

Packers not ready to name starting RT, backup QB

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- It would seem that Vince Young is the clear-cut option to be the Green Bay Packers' backup quarterback.

"We have two quarterbacks here (and) the No. 2 spot hasn't been answered...

Marshawn Lynch Bear Hugs Aaron Rodgers, Tickles His Mustache During Packers-Seahawks Game (Video)
