Vince Young takes to Twitter to ask Larry Fitzgerald for a job with the Cardinals

Shutdown Corner

Via Twitter.

This is painful to read. Not painful as in "watching the Cardinals get shut out and surrender half a hundred" painful, but "dude, have some pride" painful.

Vince Young, once and (he hopes) future NFL quarterback, took to Twitter on Sunday to ask the Cardinals' Larry Fitzgerald for a job. (For those of you unaccustomed to the grammar-optional world of Twitter, this translates as, "You know I can help. Tell coach.") Young, like the rest of the NFL audience, was watching in horror as the Seahawks hung 58 unanswered points on the Cardinals; unlike most of the audience, Young apparently still thinks he can make a difference on the field.

Maybe he can. Asked by one reporter after the 58-0 thrashing at the hands of the Seattle Seahawks who would be starting at quarterback next week, Cards head coach Ken Whisenhunt asked, "Do you play?"

Young made headlines earlier this season when he revealed that he has nearly burned through the entire $34 million he's received in salary throughout his NFL career. He tried to catch on with the Bills earlier this year but was cut in August. Without a doubt, he could use a little work.

Problem is, nobody's hiring someone of Young's skills, not even the woeful Cardinals. Although after this week, the Cardinals might want to just cut everybody not named Fitzgerald and start from scratch. Anybody can put up zero points, right?
