Tennessee Titans linebacker Colin McCarthy shows his passion on twitter

US PRESSWIRE

McCarthy isn't counting himself out of the competition for ILB just yet.

Friday nights are usually pretty boring during the offseason, especially in terms of anything potentially important to the Titans. This Friday night was different, when Colin McCarthy showed that he still has every intention of being a starter in the Titans defense in 2014.

The conversation all started when ESPN South writer Paul Kuharsky tweeted this:


in response to a question about why the Tennessee Titans would bring in a new linebacker and who was on the outs.

This eventually lead to this tweet by McCarthy:


Which prompted this response:


And the conversation finally ended here:


Now I didn't see anything wrong with Kuharsky's tweets or Colin McCarthy's responses I just like seeing that despite so many setbacks in his career, McCarthy still has confidence.

This is interesting because for as good as McCarthy was early in his career, injuries and a decrease in production have made McCarthy the odd man out in terms of anyone with the potential to start in Tennessee. A year ago it was hard to find a Titans fan that wasn't excited that McCarthy would be anchoring the middle of the defense, but now it seems like he is one of the least talked about players on the roster.

If McCarthy stays healthy there is every chance that he could be at least competitive for a starting inside linebacker role. He has always had a nose for the ball and he always seems to be in the right place at the right time. Maybe this new system and coaching staff can help him put all that potential together.
