Vince Young Files For Bankruptcy at the Age of 30
Young, who is eight years removed from starring in one of the best games in Rose Bowl history, filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection last week according to the Houston Chronicle. Young, who is 30, has been embroiled in two ugly lawsuits dating back to the 2011 NFL lockout. From the Chronicle:
listing Young with estimated assets between $500,001 and $1 million and liabilities between $1,001,000 and $10 million.
When the 2011 lockout hit, Young – whose rookie contract guaranteed him $25 million – took out loans, but either made poor decisions or was swindled. More from the Chronicle:
Documents filed in the Peoples case include a financial statement as of July 2013 that listed Young and his wife, Candice, with assets totaling $1.8 million and liabilities totaling $2.5 million, including the New York state judgment. Young’s assets included five cars, his home, NFL annuity and 401(k) funds and jewelry valued at about $200,000.
Young was released by the Green Bay Packers just prior to the 2013 season, and despite many teams needing a quarterback in 2013, he didn’t get picked up. Is Young’s career already over?
Munchak to coach Steelers' O-line
Mike Munchak has been hired as the Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive line coach, the team announced Thursday.
The Hall of Fame offensive lineman was fired as coach of the Tennessee Titans earlier this month, after compiling a three-season mark of 22-26 and not taking the team to the playoffs. Before leading the Titans, he was their offensive line coach for 14 years.
BrownThe Steelers made their biggest acquisition of the offseason by hiring Mike Munchak to be their offensive line coach, Scott Brown writes. Analysis
The Steelers were Mike Munchak's No. 1 rivals during his playing days for the Oilers. Now, he's joining them as a coach, writes Paul Kuharsky. Blog
Munchak and the Steelers met last Friday about the position, which was left open when coach Mike Tomlin fired Jack Bicknell Jr. after just one season.
"I am excited that Mike will be joining our staff at the Pittsburgh Steelers," coach Mike Tomlin said. "Mike's offensive line background speaks for itself, both as a Hall of Fame player for the Houston Oilers and as a very successful coach with the Tennessee Titans. I look forward to having him join our coaching staff as we have already started preparing for the 2014 season."
Munchak's name has been mentioned with several head-coaching vacancies since the regular season ended, including the still-open Cleveland Browns position and the since-filled spots with the Detroit Lions and Penn State.
Munchak grew up in Scranton, Pa., rooting for the "Super Steelers" of the 1970s. Now the Hall of Fame guard finds himself in charge of a unit that has struggled to stay healthy or play with any consistency in recent years.
The Steelers went 8-8 in 2013, rallying from a 2-6 start to avoid the franchise's first losing record in a decade. Pittsburgh did it despite losing star center Maurkice Pouncey eight plays into the season -- against the Titans -- for the season with a major knee injury.
It kick-started a fitful fall that saw the Steelers use four centers and forced Bicknell to play mix-and-match with the other line positions depending on who was healthy.
The constant shuffling, combined with significant step backs in play by second-year left tackle Mike Adams and third-year right tackle Marcus Gilbert, stunted the growth of Pittsburgh's offense. The Steelers ranked 27th in the league in yards rushing (1,383) and 29th in yards per attempt (3.5).
Mike Munchak will attempt to right a Steelers offensive line that watched Ben Roethlisberger get sacked 42 times this past season.
While running back Le'Veon Bell set a team record for yards from scrimmage by a rookie, he averaged just 3.5 yards per carry and spent most of his time mincing his steps at the line of scrimmage waiting for holes that sometimes failed to open.
The line struggled to protect quarterback Ben Roethlisberger early in the season, giving up 36 sacks through the first nine games. Those numbers dipped significantly later in the season (42 total sacks on year), a combination of improved play and Pittsburgh's move to a no-huddle offense.
Munchak, who made nine Pro Bowls during his 12-year career with the Houston Oilers from 1982-93, was considered one of the best line coaches in the NFL before ascending to head coach in 2011.
He will be the fourth offensive line coach the Steelers have had since Tomlin took over in 2007.
Brandon Jacobs has no warm feelings for Jim Harbaugh
Running back Brandon Jacobs has retired from the NFL so he doesn’t have to worry about remaining in the good graces of anyone who might think about hiring him in the future.
Or anyone who hired him in the past, for that matter. Jacobs spent a frustrating 2012 season as a member of the 49ers that saw him spend most of his time on the inactive list before getting suspended for conduct detrimental to the team. Jacobs, who was released at the start of the 49ers’ playoff run and returned to the Giants in 2013, had tweeted something about hating your boss before his suspension.
He said at the time that he wasn’t talking about 49ers coach Jim Harbaugh and insisted during a Thursday interview on WFAN that he was always respectful toward Harbaugh while he was in San Francisco, but retirement seems to have loosened his tongue.
“He is a *****, and that’s why he’s never won anything,” Jacobs said. “It is what it is. I’ve got two rings. Harbaugh, though, he’s a *****. So it doesn’t matter.”
Jacobs frequently shared exactly what was on his mind during his Giants career, whether through his comments or through a toss of his helmet. It doesn’t look like he’ll be changing course now that he’s hung up that helmet.
