I am really ready for the season to start so this whole bounty thing will take a back seat to stuff that is actually going on between the lines. It is interesting, however, to watch the NFL players involved downplay it. The league is trying to make Gregg Williams look like the worst person to ever be involved with the game of football, while the alleged targets of the bounty system continually downplay it.

One of the latest players to be named as a target is the Titans very own Matt Hasselbeck. Here is what Hasselbeck had to say according to Jim Wyatt of The Tennessean:

"I don’t know what to believe. I am not following it that closely," Hasselbeck said on Wednesday. "I think what I heard was the quarterback, the running back and the top wide receiver were the three names (reportedly on the bounty list for that game). Those are the names you would expect, I guess. I have been going about my thing, and I really don’t know what to say. I guess there’s been a lot of ‘he said, he said’ in the situation."

The games cannot get here soon enough.
