True that. If he is indeed suffering from depression, no amount of reasoning will help, he needs treatment and I truly hope he receives it.
If, on the other hand, he's just being a spoiled little ******, he needs to man up and quit being such a pu*sy. Maybe he's just sick of playing for an *****hole.

Sounds like he's let things really get to him. Maybe he paid too much attention to john doe fan and the media. No matter who you are your going to have critics. There was this guy once, his name was Jesus.................you know the rest.
Nobody is perfect and he needs to remember it's just a game. One in which he's well compensated for playing. Do your best and if it's not good enough oh well you tried.
As someone who suffered for years from depression and finally got help myself, I understand what he's going through. I agree that it's the depression causing it. If he gets the right help and possibly the right medication, he should be fine. I doubt he's looking for sympathy. I hope he gets the help he needs.

This is gonna come out wrong, but...................
I'm sure playing for that a-hole Fisher doesn't help.
I do feel back, cuz I know from personal experience, depression is a M-effer. But seriously, there is not one other coach in the NFL I despise more then him (cept M'gina). He has totally destroyed VY potential, by not using him correctly. I always liked Vince and hope that he eventually finds peace.

Depression is a tricky bird. I've found through personal experience that the only way to get out of it is to work. Pick yourself up one day, resolve to change your position, stop feeling sorry for yourself and make changes. Small at first, but palpable. For me, it was making a commitment to my job. To find out just how well I utilize my personal skill set. It took about a month or two of no results and strong desires to just sit at home before I began to enjoy life again. Ten months after finding the resolve, I was on my second promotion of the quarter and running the largest sales channel of the company. I write this not to brag, but to illustrate just what a hinderance depression can be. It's still a struggle to this day and I have to be dilligent about staying buisy, excersizing daily and fighting counter-productive impulses.
Vince Young, if he is depressed, faces a challenge. A lot of kids his age fall into a similar funk. It's another self-identity crisis, usually compounded by some real failure; learning that you aren't as invincible as you previously thought. If he works hard at staying with the program, he will likely find that he is who he thought he was all along. He just needed to view adversity as opportunity to learn and improve, not a hinderance.
He gets my best, most sincere wishes. Just getting out the door can be a challenge at times, despite just how great a person really is. If he walks away from football, that's his decision. If I was in Jeff Fisher's shoes I would encourage VY every day to stick it out day to day. To work himself out of the rut, and remind him of why he was taken 3rd overall.
