Mike Vrabel’s ‘penis’ quote resurfaces as Titans punt proves costly in playoff loss to Ravens

Must read


The Titans decided to kick and potentially dashed their Super Bowl hopes.

In the 17-13 fourth quarter, Mike Vrabel and the Titans punted into Ravens territory, raising eyebrows and drawing criticism from all corners of the Twittersphere.

On a fourth and second off the Ravens 40-yard line with 10:06 left on the game clock, Vrabel and the Titans opted for a punt, giving the ball back to the Ravens with ample time. The Ravens would come down the field and score a basket, giving them a 20-13 lead. The score would hold for the final.

“I just decided to punt,” Vrabel said in his post-match press conference. “We were playing well defensively, we thought we had a punt inside the 10 and we were able to play the game from position on the field. I spent time there that I felt we could. We kept them in the basket. “

Of course, those decisions are often taken with great care and are often easily questioned in real time – but Vrabel’s decision to kick is the first time this has happened in over 25 years, according to Pro Football Reference.

Analyzes also disagree – vehemently – with Vrabel’s decision at this particular point in time, leading to a lot of reinforcement for the head scratching on the decision.

Of course, the Internet does not forget: Vrabel once was quoted as saying he would cut his own genitals if that meant a Super Bowl appearance for the Titans. Obviously, the potential beheading played on Vrabel’s mind, and the worshiping audience reminded Titans HC of it.
