There is a 50/50 chance that Zach Mettenberger won't be the starter for the Tennessee Titans when the 2015 season starts. That means there is also a 50/50 chance that he will, and Mett is doing everything in his power to show the franchise that he is ready to take the reigns. You have to respect him for that.
Jim Wyatt reports that The Mett Show has been organizing workouts with receivers during the offseason. Since the NFL doesn't allow players to workout in an organized fashion at the facility right now, the group has been working out at a local high school, Father Ryan. The group that has been working out there includes Mett, Dexter McCluster, Delanie Walker, Kendall Wright, Justin Hunter and newly signed Harry Douglas.
Here is what Wright had to say about Mettenberger to Wyatt:
"Our quarterback, Zach, is a young guy and he is stepping up," Wright said. "He is more than ready to play, and we all are following Zach, just going out there and getting him ready and running the things he wants to run, some of the things he wants to do. It's rained a couple of times when we've been throwing, but that didn't stop us. We just kept going.
"I think we all have a lot of respect for Zach. With him trying to be the leader, it is a good thing. And he is going to be the leader if he is going to be our quarterback. Just him texting us and everyone showing up, that's a good sign."
The guys believe in Mettenberger. That's not nothing...for lack of a better term.
