This is kind of a loaded question, but it's also one that I've pondered for awhile now. If I could hang out with any Titans player right now, who would it be?
For my own personal reasons, I've narrowed it down to three players; Chris Johnson, Alterraun Verner, and Cortland Finnegan.
Making a case for any of these guys is easy, but I'll do it anyway.
I think we all know how cool of a guy Verner is. He's an active member of the MCM community, he did the right thing and finished school, and by some accounts, he was the best cornerback on the team last year. Whether that's more of a testament to Verner's skills or the decline of Tennessee's group can be debated, but in a Suh-less year, he most likely would have garnered more than a few votes for Defensive Rookie of the Year. Make no mistake, he came in and stepped up big time last year. It's going to be very interesting to watch his career continue to progress and I'm thrilled to have him on the team. All of this coming from a fourth round pick we got from dumping LenDale White on Seattle. Ain't that something.
My thoughts on Cort should be clear by now, I think he's a stand up guy and it'd be awesome to hang with the guy. If nothing else, he could let me know how to piss off Andre Johnson. I think we all saw how he struggled more than he had in years past in 2010, but it's impossible for me to stay mad at the guy, he's given us way too much for me to give up on him after just one down year.
Now, Chris Johnson does it all on the field. I have a feeling that by the time he's done, he'll be known as one of the greatest, if not the greatest Titans player ever. I imagine that a lot of it will have to do with his ability to maintain that blazing speed he's known for and/or his ability to adapt to a new style of running as his speed gradually leaves his legs. As for off the field? I mean, HAVE YOU SEEN THIS DUDE'S WHIPS???? (Whip I, Whip II, Whip III)
A day with CJ would be downright sick. For as much crap as he takes from the old fogeys, he seems like a genuinely cool guy and, from what I can tell, knows how to party hard without going overboard like some other players we know...
Cort and ATV seem like great guys, and no disrespect, but if I've got a choice, I'm rolling with CJ for the day. Thoughts?
SUCK IT LEBROOOONNNNNN!!!!!!!
