Delanie Walker: Losing to Jaguars is “disgusting”

Delanie Walker, Russell Allen AP

The Titans would have been in position to play for a share of first place in the AFC South with a victory on Sunday against the Jaguars, but things didn’t work out that way.

Jacksonville won its first game of the season and, predictably, it left some Titans with a bad taste in their mouths. Safety Bernard Pollard said the team should be embarrassed about losing to a team that “plain and simple” isn’t good. Tight end Delanie Walker excoriated any teammates thinking about first place when the team couldn’t take care of business against a winless team on their home field.

“It’s disgusting. I’m disappointed. I’m embarrassed. A team that’s 0-8 comes in here and beats us? Beats us on our home field, that’s 0-8, the Jaguars? Come on,” Walker said, via Terry McCormick of Titan Insider. “Talking about first place? Talking about first place? We just got whooped by the Jaguars. We ain’t talking first place no more. It’s out the window. We’ve got to come back and play the Colts. I don’t know how everybody’s gonna handle it. I mean, we lost to the Jaguars.”

Walker said that the short week of practice before Thursday’s game against the Colts would be telling about how the team responds to getting punched in the mouth. Sunday’s loss also appears to have cost the team quarterback Jake Locker, which might constitute a kick to a different part of the body for a team that had a far brighter outlook when Sunday began.

    Walker sounds like he was about to go full Jim Mora (“Playoffs?”).

    You should give up your pay for the week!

    oh boy. The Bucs have the inside track on the #1 pick. On the one hand there is an air of anticipation, but wow what they have done (And will keep doing) to secure it. Worse than Jax? Tragic.

    You hate to see any team lose them all but I love that “disgusting” was the word used to lose to a team that can barely make it down the field.

    Could be a bad week for The Titans. The Colts were trounced today and will arrive in a distinctly foul and angry mood, along with a decidedly more talented QB.

    I knew I would love the quote based on the headline, but I didn’t know I would love it that much! How often do you hear an professional athlete degrade an opponent like that? Um , how about NEVER in this p.c. infested society. Thank you Delaney.

    Playoffs? Don’t talk about playoffs. Are you kidding me? Playoffs?

    This game is the upset of the week! And lots of “survival” game players went out today.

    Titans should refund the fans tix money for paying to see that performance.

    I appreciate his honesty. He saying what every fan of the Titans is saying. Losing to an 0-8 at home is awful.

    @ivanpavlov0000,

    It’s funny you say that because in my survival pool this game eliminated everyone left.

    So our administrator is allowing us to stay in for another week.

    I’m guessing the Jags would have felt the same way had they lost, Delanie.

    Titans are awful.

    When your locker is made of glass, your stuff will be stolen.

    Los Angeles I beg you, please take this franchise. So sick of being subjected to this mess. This isn’t a kneejerk reaction either. I’ve had it with this boring gutless team.

    Jags are undefeated in the second half of the season. Shut up.
