Rishard Matthews quit on the Titans, and that’s not OK

Rishard Matthews quit on the Titans. He wasn’t happy with his role this season so he decided he would take his ball and go home. Apparently there are a lot of people out there that are OK with this. I just don’t understand that. Being on a team should always be more about what is best for the team that for the individual. It wasn’t for Rishard.

I also love this:

You know what, Buck, you are dang right that I am mad that he quit on the team that I am a fan of. I think it’s wrong for anyone to quit on any team, but of course I am going to be more upset with Matthews than Vontae Davis. Both guys are quitters, but I don’t really care about the Buffalo Bills. I am not going to apologize for that.

Jon Robinson and Mike Vrabel have made it very clear that they only want guys here that are more about the team than themselves because that is the only way to build a successful organization. The bottom line here is that Rishard decided his interests were more important that the interests of the interests of everybody else in the organization. He has the right to do that, but I’m not going to let anyone tell me to be OK with that.
