During Sunday’s 17-6 loss to the Jaguars in Tennessee, a team the Titans had blown out in Jacksonville, tight end Bo Scaife dropped a pass near the goal line. After the game, he bolted from the locker room before the media could grill him about the gaffe.
“I just knew y’all were gonna ask me some bullsh-t, and I wasn’t in the mood,” Scaife said, per Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com. “I probably would have done some VY stuff. You know what I’m saying? I might have pulled a VY on y’all. I just wanted to avoid that and let my emotions calm down a little bit. No one felt worse than I did.”
Scaife was laughing when he referred to pulling a VY. We have a feeling that “VY” — quarterback Vince Young — wouldn’t see the humor in that.
Of course, Scaife was referring to last month’s decision by Young to storm out of the locker room after a home loss to the Redskins. Young’s behavior prompted coach Jeff Fisher to tell the media that Young was out as the team’s starting quarterback. He has since been placed on injured reserve after thumb surgery.
“I didn’t stick around because I knew I was gonna say something to piss y’all off about something. It’s probably better that way to let me get my emotions together, so I didn’t do a disservice to myself and the organization,” Scaife said. “So that’s why I needed to get out of there.”
The drop came while the Titans trailed 17-3, and a touchdown would have cut the gap to seven. Instead, the Titans settled for a field goal.
UPDATE: OK, so maybe it wasn’t really a verb. You get the idea.
