Vince Young's First NFL Touchdown

In the game they lost by one point and leading to Young not talking to the media afterward, Vince Young score his first NFL touchdown:

Vince Young Hates Losing - Didn't Talk To Media After Colts Game; Appology Given Today

Texas' Vince Young, the third pick in the first round of the NFL Draft and to the Tennessee Titans, hates being 0 and 5. He was so upset about losing to the Colts that he didn't talk to the media.

It's understandable that he was as upset as he expressed with his silence. Several Titans receivers missed catchable passes Young threw that were difference makers in a contest they lost only by one point, 13 to 14.

Today, on the NFL Network, he appologized for not talking on Sunday and explained that he wasn't used to losing. He and Lendel White are having a hard time with the team's current position.

I think Vince did the right thing by not shooting off his mouth after the contest on Sunday. Today he spoke with a cool head and in a tone that garnered sympathy from the press in the lockerroom.

Vince may be young -- excuse the pun -- but he's well-trained by his parents and associates and wants to do well and be nice to people.

He may just be the tonic the Titans need to turn things around.

Favre sits out practice
By Rob Demovsky

The Packers’ first bye-week practice Tuesday did not include quarterback Brett Favre and a handful of other veteran and injured players.

Backup quarterback Aaron Rodgers took most of the reps in practice in place of Favre.

Other players held out of practice were: running back Ahman Green, fullback Brandon Miree, linebacker Abdul Hodge, linebacker Ben Taylor, left tackle Chad Clifton, defensive lineman Cullen Jenkins, receiver Donald Driver and receiver Robert Ferguson.

Favre had been bothered by a sore neck and shoulder before last week’s loss to the St. Louis Rams.

Rookie cornerback Will Blackmon returned to practice but still wasn’t able to fully participate due to the foot injury that has kept him out since May.

Blackmon said he’s hopeful he’ll be ready to return in time for the Packers’ next game, at Miami on Oct. 22.

The Packers are scheduled to practice through Thursday before taking a three-day weekend.
