Good read, talks about David Lee helping fix Youngs mechanics like he's doing with Fitz. I kind of feel sorry for Thigpen. He seems like a good guy but he has next to no chance of beating out VY and making this team.
VY already nailing down No. 2 Bills QB spot?
John Kryk - July 27th, 2012
PITTSFORD, N.Y. ó It wonít be a surprise if Vince Young quickly pulls away in the battle to be the Buffalo Billsí backup quarterback.
He might already be doing so.
Although head coach Chan Gailey said Friday that the teamís pre-season training camp doesnít really begin until Saturday, when the first practice in full pads takes place, Young already has looked much better than Tyler Thigpen, who last year backed up starting quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick (Thatís my photo of Fitz above left, with Young on Friday.)
If thatís only because Thigpen is stinking up the St. John Fisher College practice fields, so be it.
After struggling with second-team reps on Thursday, Thigpen tossed two ugly interceptions with the third-teamers in 11-on-11 drills on Friday afternoon. On one he locked onto a thoroughly covered receiver on a short route and threw it to him anyway.
Thigpen and Young flip-flopped between the second and third teams by design in the first two days of camp, and might continue to do so until a clear No. 2 emerges.
If current trends continue, that wonít take long............
