Titans safety Bernard Pollard has a way with words. Especially when using those words to describe the way his team is playing. Especially when it’s not playing well.
“Piss poor horrible,” Pollard said Wednesday regarding the team’s first four games.
He elaborated on that point, explaining that the team has a culture of losing.
“We work, but it’s not translating over to the football field on Sunday,” Pollard said, via Terry McCormick of TitanInsider.com. “We have to understand that we have to be better. It’s a must. I come from an organization where the mentality, the culture is just totally different. Yeah, you might lose some games, but it’s a different culture. That needs to be changed here . . . .
“I’m gonna try to piss some people off and I couldn’t care less about what I’m saying. We have talent. We have guys that can take the roof off and guys that can be stars in this league. It’s time for us to do that. The first quarter was piss poor horrible. We sucked butt. I say that again. We were horrible. But we have a shot at being a very good football team, and I’m gonna try and pull that out for all of us.”
At least they’re consistent. In April, Pollard said after his first season with the franchise that the Titans “sucked butt.”
The season started off with considerable promise, given that they went to Kansas City and beat the Chiefs, a playoff team from 2013, in their own building. Since then, the Titans have lost three games in a row, by 16 points, 26 points, and 24 points.
“Right now, we’re doormats to a lot of people around the league,” Pollard said.
Or, as the case may be, piss poor horrible.
