Hand Vince the Heisman
He was at James Madison High School on the southwest side of Houston. He was at the University of Texas, where he was good enough to make Mack Brown a winner - and that's really hard. And it looks like he's going to build a similar body of work with the Tennessee Titans in Nashville.
Facing a Saints team desperate to avoid an 0-3 start, Vince led the Titans into the Superdome tonight and again showed without a doubt who was the star of that draft class of 2006. It was far from a repeat of the Rose Bowl but the result was virtually the same.
Some of my colleagues have been eager to paint me as a Reggie Bush hater. Really, I'm not. I just think, in the long run, that Reggie won't be worth the second pick of the draft. Not for a receiving running back.
The real prize of that draft was No. 10. The No. 10 who should have been No. 1.
The guy whose Wonderlic score was supposedly lower than all but a few of the lower life forms. The guy Reggie beat out for the Heisman but not for the national title. The guy who some pundits said - before his senior year at UT - would be better off playing receiver.
Well, Reggie is definitely the better receiver. But Vince is the better player. And he always has been.
