The folks at Burnt Orange Nation asked me to explain my thoughts about Vince Young, why I think he'll be an elite NFL quarterback five years from now and why I don't think he's like Michael Vick. A brief Q&A ensued.

This week Gregg Easterbrook writes that if you think football is important now, you haven't seen anything yet. TMQ also reminds us that "although the entire big-deal sports world evinced amazement that Indianapolis won the Super Bowl by using the running game," he told us as much in last week's column: "Indianapolis will feature the run against a Bears defense that has spent two weeks practicing for bombs away."
Miami Dolphins owner Wayne Huizenga will not tolerate holdouts this spring: ''I'm telling you -- mark my words -- if that guy is not in camp on the first day, he will sit out for the year." Sounds good in theory, but what happens when a player's agent calls his bluff? (Free registration/bugmenot required)
In which Mr. King discusses Manning's preparation for the big game, the Hall of Fame voting, how Ted Johnson will apparently affect New England's future free-agent acquisitions, what Tom Brady and O.J. have in common, Billy Joel's apparent performance superiority over Prince (?), and more.
New Falcons coach Bobby Petrino is going to allow Michael Vick to -- gasp -- call audibles at the line (hey!) if plays look doomed next season. No word on whether he will stop Vick from employing the offense solely to earn Madden Challenge Points.
A few weeks ago we linked to a story that tied former Eagles safety Andre Waters' suicide to concussions he suffered during his NFL career. Unfortunately, concussions pervade professional football and former Patriots linebacker Ted Johnson has now come forward with his story.
