Vince Young assesses the NFL’s best young quarterbacks

In Week One, 13 quarterbacks had a passer rating of 115.0 or greater, the most in almost any week in NFL history.
For the first time ever, two QBs had flawless passer evaluations (158.3) at a season opener, and also one of these had been 22-year-old Ravens signal-caller Lamar Jackson, who became the youngest player in NFL history to post a great score.
Deshaun Watson (23) had a tremendous Week One revival, even though dropping to a last-gasp field target in New Orleans, and many other players comparatively new to the league impressed. Last year’s MVP Patrick Mahomes (23) continued his achievement using a three-touchdown, 143.2 passer score opener.
With that in mind, we asked Pro Bowler and long-time NFL quarterback Vince Young – that will join Neil Reynolds within studio that NFL Sunday – that young QBs.
“Deshaun Watson has been a lover of me because I had been playing!
“I understood he was a big fan of mine when he won a National Championship [for Clemson at January 2017] and said my title [within his post-game speech]. I just recall:”Vince Young” and since then, I have reached out to him.
“He understands a lot of folks I know, so each time that I get an opportunity to speak to him, I offer him my opinion about what.
“I’m very proud of him. I knew he had the talent, it’s only about adjusting.
“I hope he just gets to the stage of telling [the Texans] what he wants. That’s a indication of maturity and it has been made by him.
“I hope he is telling them’I want the offensive line , I want more plays with the platter’. I really hope he continues to grow just like that as I watched Dak Prescott and he’s increased and how he’s been successful.
“I need Watson to be verbally showing his adulthood at which he can handle more and it is what he needs. He also deserves an offensive line that could protect him he does not need to conduct as much and so he can play a bit longer than the majority of the men who move around with the ball.”
Young himself turned into scramble and create plays with his legs just like Watson – and we asked him whether he saw any similarities between the two.
He said:”Yeah. Overall we have a game, although he’s a bit better thrower than me I think. He’s quite true downfield, makes a whole lot of plays, he is well-loved and a great leader of the group. He conducts the ball .
“He pulls off things which you never believed anyone could do.
“Therefore I believe we have any similarities but I think his chunk is a bit more precise than me on account of the fact that he threw a little bit greater than me rising up.
“I am not faulting myself but he is a really good guy, a excellent athlete so I’m pleased with him.”
“Me and Me text and talk a good deal so the most important thing that I say is:’I’m very proud of you. You stood through all that adversity and everybody talking about you. You are in a role, you are currently making plays. You are not only using your thighs, but with they say?’
“I have been very proud of him I just tell him to continue doing the work behind the scenes and be certain to keep in your defensive coordinator’s ear and then ask him lots of questions -‘What would you think a defense will attempt to do to me this season or this game?’
“Once you determine what you are going to do and also the prep, ensure you ask him lots of questions about whatever the defense may pick up you could easily fix.
“Defensive guys are so good – they pick up if you are rocking [at the line of scrimmage]they know when you stop, you’re just about to snap the ball. They pick up a great deal of small detailed things that can help them leap off the ball or react.”
Will Blackmon Super Bowl winner along with winner on Sky Sports until mid-season, also gave us his thoughts after selecting him because his NFL Challenge captain in Week One Jackson.
Blackmon stated:”I picked him captain last week due to the matchup. I thought the Dolphins weren’t prepared and figured things out.
“However, I like this year as right now, it is possible to see how confident he is.
“Last year, after he was finally called the starter at the end of the year, he started becoming comfortable but once they traded away Joe Flacco and it is his staff today he merely looks so comfortable and he’s so much support.
“He has the supporting cast concerning receivers, he has a great working back in Mark Ingram plus he has a really good defense and that is a recipe for victory .”
Young told Sky Sports:”‘MVP’ and head coach Andy Reid are a match made in heaven.
“Mahomes has a powerful arm plus Reid likes to throw the ball deep – loves a good deal of deep throws. I love that chemistry , mahomes has the arm for it. I love watching both.”
Young:”I predicted him to win Rookie of the Year so I am pleased to see what happened with him [Arizona scored 18 points in the fourth quarter to secure a 27-27 tie with Detroit].”
Blackmon added with this year’s No 1 NFL Draft pick:”I believe we saw a few maturation from Kyler Murray in the match. He did horribly in the first half when it rains, he brought his team back and gave them a opportunity.
“That’s huge, to observe that”
Young:”Allen did a excellent job of staying it [on Sunday as the Bills came back to beat the Jets]. I got the chance to meet him some time back so simply to see the development of a good deal of these young guys, I am happy.”
“I am still trying to out him, but he’s a huge chance [with these weapons].”
“I am ready to see the young man get his chance.”
