Titans safety says his own team 'suck' and he wouldn't root for them

Tennessee Titans strong safety Bernard Pollard had some truthful and scathing comments for his own team as they are currently not living up to the expectations he has set for them.

Despite only being in his second season with the Tennessee franchise, the 29-year-old is not afraid of ruffling a few feathers in his own locker room by giving a brutally honest statement about his unhappiness at the way his team are playing thus far.

Pollard's honesty

Pollard spoke to Jim Wyatt from The Tennessean and explained how he thought his own team 'suck' and he wouldn't root for them as a fan of the game, his statement read:

"I am pretty sure I've offended people, but I couldn't care less. We need to just show up and play. As far as saying we need the fans to show up and back us up, they've been backing us up since we've been here. You want to call them fair-weather fans and say they don't show up, rightfully so. I wouldn't root for this team either, because we're a team that comes out and shows greatness one time and then we come out and drop an egg. We can't do that."

Titanic disappointment

The opening weekend of the season saw the Tennessee Titans waltz into Arrowhead Stadium and comfortably beat the heavily favourited Kansas City Chiefs on their own turf 26-10, but since that result the team have spiralled to three consecutive defeats.

Not only have the results not been good enough but the effort has not been substantial in the views of Pollard, the frustration for the safety has boiled over and he has called out his team to turn things around for the sake of the fans.

The Titans currently sit at a 1-3 record, their last three losses have a combined scoreline of 100-34 and the team now has a chance to turn things around in front of their home crowd as they face the Cleveland Browns at LP Field.

Pollard will surely have to bring his A-game after calling out his team in such scathing fashion and look for the hard hitting safety to make an impact in their next contest.
