Tennessee Titans and S Bernard Pollard Want to ‘Kill’

The Tennessee Titans and safety Bernard Pollard have a thing for killing. Well, in a figurative sense.

We think.

Days after Mario Williams and the Bills organization had to backtrack over comments about killing, Pollard is at it again and doesn’t care who hears it or how you feel about it. Pollard’s locker touts the word according to Darin Gantt of ProFootballTalk:

According to Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean, Pollard has a hand-written message taped to the front of his locker at the Titans facility which reads: “Goal — Super Bowl. Mission — Kill!!!”

To be frank, Pollard truly doesn’t care what you think about the slogan or that fact he wants to “kill” the opposition:

“Our goal is the Super Bowl, and our mission is to kill,” the veteran safety said while pointing to the note. “And if someone doesn’t like it, then who cares? I really couldn’t care less. It is not our responsibility to make anyone else happy, to please you, to care about you.

“Our responsibility is to protect LP Field and our responsibility is to steal wins on the road. And our responsibility is to [beat you up] as a defense, and that’s what we’re going to do on every single play. You have to have that mentality because nobody cares about the Tennessee Titans. Nobody. So you have to take the respect. That’s what we have to do. . . . Yeah, this team can get to the Super Bowl.”

Pollard doesn’t care, but the league office might. This is the league that was very agitated over the phrase “kill the head and the body will die” not so long ago in New Orleans, spoken by a man known as Gregg Williams, who ironically is now employed by the Titans.

It’s sensitive language for a league desperately attempting to protect its image as it expands at a ludicrous rate. Watch how the Bills and the league as a whole react to this one.

    IMO, I have No Problem with him saying that! Or anyone else for that matter because the word “Kill” is nothing but {Slang}!!! I mean c’mon people, how many times have you ever used this phrase in your life? I remember just the other day my sister ran into my truck. I said to her, dude, I oughta just kill ya for doing this to my truck! Was I mad? Yes, I was really pissed off, but in no way was I threatening her life in!!! I also remember that this “Phrase” used to be a lot more commonly used years ago, however since the world was turned upside down a few of years back, we now live in a country that disrespects our right to FREE SPEACH!!! It’s a Freakin’ word people that’s all it is! A phrase! Nothing more, nothing less! To make my point, I really hope the Tennessee Titans “KILL” all there competition this year!!! Man, I sure hope I don’t get in trouble for this one!!! :-)
    Go kill ‘em Titans! 4EverTitans…Titans4Ever!!!
