Vince Young is very confident in himself, seemingly for no reason

There's nothing wrong with being confident. In fact, as a pro athlete, it's pretty much necessary, especially when last year it seemed like you had no confidence at all. But sometimes you can just seem crazy, which is the case right now with Vince Young.

The current backup quarterback for the Tennessee Titans had this to say to Esquire:
I don't know when I'll start again. But I will be the next black quarterback to win a Super Bowl. And I will be in the Hall of Fame.
On one hand, what do we really expect him to say? "I'm a second-tier quarterback at best and will likely never start again"? No. But on the other hand, it's kind of cocky to say you'll win a Super Bowl when you aren't even the starter.

I'll be the first to admit I'm not a huge Vince Young believer. I've always thought he was overrated. In his short career, he's thrown 22 touchdowns and 32 interceptions with an atrocious 68.8 passer rating. Sure, he's got 10 career rushing TDs but he's also fumbled 24 times.

Not exactly Hall of Fame numbers there.
