Belief in Young lies in QB tutors

There might be some NFL clubs out there that don’t harbor the same faith that the Bills do in Vince Young. There’s a good reason why.

A good number of NFL clubs don’t have the quarterback tutors that Buffalo possesses. The Bills have head coach Chan Gailey and QBs coach David Lee, two of the more renowned molders of quarterbacks. Both have a long track record of maximizing the talents of quarterbacks, and Young has an awful lot of talent.

GM Buddy Nix sounded convinced that their abilities as coaches will bring out the best, and minimize any flaws in Vince Young’s game.

“We’ve got two of the best quarterback coaches in the business, starting with Coach Gailey and then David Lee,” said Nix. “Those guys are good teachers. I remember I saw Vince practice as a freshman at Texas. It goes way back. I’ve always admired his ability and the things he can do. I think our guys will get him more accurate and help him as far as not turning the ball over.”

Gailey has maximized the quarterback talents of players like Kordell Stewart and Jay Fiedler, and Ryan Fitzpatrick has been more successful under Gailey than any other coach in the NFL. Lee revived Chad Pennington’s career in Miami and has maximized the talent of a countless number of college quarterbacks. With that kind of tutelage guiding him, Young should be at his best in Buffalo.
