The Other Side of Cortland Finnegan

Jim Wyatt had an excellent story in yesterday's Tennessean about Cortland Finnegan. If you haven't already, take the time today to read the whole story. For all of the issues Finnegan has had on the field, it shows you that he really is a good dude off the field.

Here is just a a little piece of the feature:

Lea Ann Towns said Finnegan was at the hospital for every one of her daughter’s chemotherapy treatments last fall, and in turn Kelsey willed herself into feeling better in time to go to every game.

Finnegan also was at the hospital at 5:30 a.m. on Oct. 25, 2010, when Towns had her second surgery, and was waiting for her when she was wheeled out.

Again, you really need to click the link and read the whole story.

Finnegan has played much better this season. The Titans are going to have a big decision coming up on him at the end of the year. They cannot afford to not re-sign him at this point.
