    Plan ahead for Vince Young's Hall of Fame induction!

    Vince Young's bold prediction: 'I will be in the Hall of Fame'
    Posted by Sean Leahy at 04:03 PM/ET, August 05, 2009
    USA TODAY

    Backup Titans QB Vince Young is confident he'll be holding the Lombardi Trophy at some point

    In remarks to Esquire, Young, lifted from the starting job in Week 1 last year, boldly predicted he'll regain the starting job and even achieve football immortality in Canton, Ohio.

    "I don't know when I'll start again," he said to the magazine. "But I will be the next black quarterback to win a Super Bowl. And I will be in the Hall of Fame."

    Young was the third overall pick of the 2006 draft. He started 29 games for the Titans in his first three years, with an 18-11 record. But veteran Kerry Collins supplanted him last year, and led the team to an NFL-best 18-11 record.

    "Kerry Collins and I are good friends," Young told Esquire. "He's been through this, too, so he knows. He's teaching me about stocks and investments."

    Titans coach Jeff Fisher has said he wants Young to reclaim the starting job at some point. But he also made clear that Collins is his starter for this season.

    Young paid tribute to his mentor, former Titans QB Steve McNair, who was killed July 4 in what police say was a murder-suicide orchestrated by his girlfriend, Sahel Kazemi.

    "It's hard to express in words how important Steve McNair is to me," Young told the magazine.

    McNair is one of three black quarterbacks to have started a Super Bowl. Philadelphia's Donovan McNabb and Washington Doug Williams, who led the Redskins to a win in Super Bowl XXII, are the others.

    Young said he is "in the best shape" of his life.

    "I'm back to playing my game and not worrying about what everybody else thinks," he told the magazine. "That was my mistake: worrying too much about critics. I'm only twenty-six, man.

    "If you think you can write me off, just watch."

    I find it highly amusing that Vince highlighted Collins teaching him about how to handle his money.

    How about learning how to handle the ball from him, huh Vince?

    Update: Due to his stellar performance in the first preseason game, Canton officials are already planning his bust construction. It is to be a bust of Kerry Collins, with Vince's head peaking out from behind.

    If I were a Titans fan, I think I'd more interested in Young being the next quarterback to win a Super Bowl, regardless of skin pigmentation.

    Next QB over 6-foot to win a SB....
    Next QB named Vince to win a SB....
    Next QB from Texas to win a SB.....
    Next QB who likes cajun salmon to win a SB....
    Next QB in the Miley Cyrus fan club to win a SB....

    If I'm a Titans fan, just be the NEXT period!

    Best HOF statement since Vince Coleman claimed that the turf at shea stadium was keeping him out of the HOF. Vince is spending too much time with the Hookah Pipe.

    he didnt say that he would be the starting QB when he is the next black QB to win a superbowl

    although he is going to find it hard to get in the HoF
    Charlie Batch has two superbowl rings and is nowhere near the HoF
