Amazing talent but utterly toxic. That had to have been his reputation in college too, right? How did the Lions miss that?

Oh yeah, it's the Lions.

Holy crap, when both the Rams and Lions have had their fill of you, you gotta know your shiat is farked up.

I'm not sure to blame them for being dumb enough to take him in the first place or applaud them for being smart enough to toss him immediately.

There was a massive paper trail covering the last two years that would indicate it was the former.

That's what I was thinking. At least they didn't go the AJ Smith route and give a locker room cancer millions guaranteed only to have him fake injuries.

I have to say I'm happy they got rid of him.  I'm thinking I'll cheer for the Rams next year.  Can't cheer for the Titans anymore.  Plus I get Fisher back.

I can't figure out why any team at any professional level would trust this guy.

Int he Green Bay game where he lined up in the wrong place on purpose, he had a TON of drops early in the game - and in retrospect, were they accidental drops? That game alone should send warning klaxons off in any GM's office when the suggestion to give Young a call is made.

Somebody on ESPN suggested the other day that the era of the diva WR is over. I so hope they are right, for everybody's sake.

And now he'll go the way of the Timmy Smith's of the world:  Never to be heard from ever again*

I honestly don't think so; if the wideout's a diva but he produces on the field, they'll tolerate him.  If he goes the way of Vince Young?  They'll can his ass first chance they'll get.

Here's the St Louis newsletter announcing his arrival. There's a trail of BS that goes all the way back to his sophomore year in college. Here's a great excerpt:

Young tweeted in late January (since deleted) that "if I'm not going to get the football I don't want to play anymore." He later childishly proclaimed that he had never run the wrong route.
According to Birkett, Young also told E.C. Robinson-his high school coach-that he was better than Johnson. And he meant it.


He did tell me he thought he was just as good Megatron. I said, 'Titus, come on.' I said, 'Come on, man. Who you talking to?' I said, 'Come on, you're as good as that guy? This guy is the real deal.' And he really believes this. And he was sincere about it. 'Ah man, I'm better than him.' I said, 'No you're not. Be real man. Come on.' So I don't know, I'm hoping for the best for him.

I never could understand people like this. Yeah you are a petty, selfish, self centered asshole, but you would think they could put that in a box and store it away for a couple hours a day when there is a lot of money on the line. They never can.
 
2013-02-15 09:45:17 PM

I'm just glad Brandon Marshall finally seems to get that. He's been nothing short of a peach in Chicago.

My money has him on the Raiders or Jets before the season's over.

and I'm a little ashamed that I would make room on my fantasy roster to pick him up

I saw a woman being rude in a pizza place one time, she was in a hurry, the pizza shop guy didn't serve her. She threw a fit and said she was going to the place across the street. She walked out, he called the place across the street, they didn't serve her either. I laughed. He said that even though the places were competitors they had a deal in place that neither would serve the person if the other place called and said not to.

He said it was the only way assholes would learn. It may not seem like much, but when you're drunk and the only thing open for a few blocks is these two pizza places, you go from wanting your PIZZA NOW to being hungry and drunk and pissed and shocked that they wouldn't serve your rude ass.

Actually is pretty funny.

I wonder if Fisher did this to Titus on purpose. Being that Shwartz used to coach under Fisher. Hopefully Titus purchased a huge house in STL and now he is stuck with it. I honestly have more respect for Charles Rodgers, Mike Williams and Roy Williams than this ass clown.

He had potential to be a pro bowler every year simply because of the looks he would have gotten with Megatron on the other side.

thank god.  I like the new class of receivers like AJ Green and Randall Cobb who get it done and don't run their mouth.  And then there's Dez...

This guy was a big fantasy sleeper for me this year. Boy was that a mistake.

He was with the team for about a week.  I doubt there was much time for house shopping.

Looks like he's going to be playing three down ball for a while.
 
2013-02-16 12:26:42 AM
That's Titus Young, SENIOR to you subby. And yeah, he's a troublemaker. He punched Louis Delmas just before this last season started. He's probably the reason they drafted Broyles last year. Good riddance, sir.
 
2013-02-16 12:27:32 AM
I am SO interested in hearing what happened during that 10 days.  It had to be spectacular.

Besides, even he probably could afford the $7.58 the huge house in STL cost him.

98% of the world would drag their genitalia through 10 miles of broken glass to have the talent and potential this kid has. How can the not be someone to face him, gran him by his shoulders and shake him and tell him "get your shiat straight son?"
 
2013-02-16 01:20:53 AM

What is the straw that broke the camel's back on your Titans decision? Bud Adams has been a massive asshole for decades

"I don't want to play anymore if I don't get the ball".

Wish granted.
 
2013-02-16 08:37:10 AM
This guy is a douchebag of epic proportions.  Fortunately, we probably won't have to hear about him anymore because the only way I can see him playing this season is if a team is devastated with injuries at WR.

Which will probably happen. Somebody will pick him up because he has ridiculous talent. They'll drop him again as soon as the season's over, but the temptation will be too much.

I'm sure he's burned through all his rookie contract money and in a couple years will be on the street or playing with Mo Claret somewhere.

Or, if he gets arrested, the Bengals would surely take a flyer on him.

You can't get away with being a diva WR when you play opposite the best WR in the league who isn't a diva.

He didn't just punch Delmas, he sucker punched him.  Walked away from a scrum, turned around and clocked him when Delmas wasn't ready.  That should've been the end of him in Detroit.
 
2013-02-16 05:13:08 PM
According to Wiki he's 5'11"  178lbs. hardly big enough to be a star WR in the NFL, barely able to be a #3 WR for even the Lions.   Enjoy your retirement sitting at the bar telling everyone who will listen how you were a pro fb player you cocky never-was.

Marshall was never really a diva, though, just had his off-the-field troubles, which, I guess, were caused partly by his bipolar illness.

The funny thing about Young is that he hasn't even earned the right to act like a diva. TO, Irvin, Keyshawn, etc. were all divas of the highest order; Ocho was more clown than diva, but an attention-whore nonetheless. Yet, they earned that shiat by being talented and producing on the field. Then they got older and a little less productive, and teams realized they didn't have to put up w/ their shiat anymore since the rewards were no longer greater than the risks. WTF has Young done since he's been in the league?

Bill Belichick can fix him.  If not, he should be euthanized.
