SI's fearless NFL expert opines on all the latest news, buzz and inside information on players. This is just a taste of what you'll get in King's Monday Morning Quarterback.

1 I think the more Tennessee's Vince Young (below) opens his mouth, the more I'd be scared witless if he were my team's QB of the future. "I didn't want to play no more," Young said—and he meant forever—on Sunday on ESPN. Young was referring to his dark period early last season when his career was headed south. It's not the first time I've heard him talk about not wanting to play anymore.

2 Speaking of QB "controversies," I think no one really expected Chris Simms to beat out Kyle Orton for the job in Denver, or to even compete with him. Simms hasn't started an NFL game in 33 months, and coach Josh McDaniels dealt Jay Cutler for Orton in part because he was convinced that Orton would be more accurate than Simms. Orton's starting has been ordained for 11 weeks, since the deal got done.

3 I think it will be downright insane if somehow Plaxico Burress, facing gun charges, beats the NFL system and is allowed to play football in 2009.
