    Vince Young comes up big for McNair's kids

    Posted by Tom Curran on September 17, 2009 5:15 PM ET
    We know this was mentioned earlier today in Josh Alper's capably compiled "One-Liners".

    But it's worth popping out a separate post to point out that Vince Young did a good thing Wednesday. A really good thing. He took Steve McNair's two young sons out to breakfast at The Pancake Pantry in Nashville.

    McNair's sons attend the St. Paul Christian Academy. On Wednesday, there was a "Dear Dads Breakfast," in which fathers take their kids out to breakfast as a group.

    Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reports that Young stepped in for McNair, who was slain July 4.

    "It was a great, great gesture. All the kids had been talking about the dads' breakfast and [Trenton and Tyler McNair] were wondering what was going to happen with them," said St. Paul admissions director Julie Dilworth.

    At McNair's funeral two months ago, Young pledged to McNair's sons that they could count on him going forward.

    "Those are my boys," Young told Wyatt. "I wouldn't say it was to pay anyone back; it was just out of love. Steve would do it for me. He pretty much did it for me when I was growing up. I have a history with the boys and I want to do anything I can. I am their big brother."

    I never really dug Vince Young, but I have a new opinion of him after this.
