Blake Bortles isn't scared.

The Titans won't draft Blake Bortles. He will be gone long before they are on the board, but I love the fact that he is going to throw at the combine. Too many guys are afraid to throw at the combine because it isn't the controlled environment of their pro day. That is a sissy move in my opinion.

If you are going to be a franchise quarterback in the NFL, you should be willing to throw in Indianapolis. I want my quarterback to have the mentality that he is going to go out there and compete every time he gets the chance.

Again, this post doesn't have anything to do with the Titans. I am just glad to see a guy step up and say he will compete. You move, Johnny Football.
