Jason McCourty made enemies of everyone in Kansas City
By Matt Conner
Jason McCourty decides to talk some trash so the Titans can feel better about their miserable roster.
Someone should have had the house band at the 2023 NFL Draft start playing during Jason McCourty’s time at the podium. That’s because the former NFL defensive back was too enamored with his chance to hog some time on camera instead of making the pick he was scheduled to announce.
If you missed McCourty’s appearance in the third round, you saved yourself from feeling a lot of anger and/or confusion. Instead of stepping up to the microphone, saying hello to the crowd, and then announcing the Tennessee Titans pick, McCourty decided to take a torch to pretty much every other team but his own and especially Kansas City, the very city hosting the entire affair.
Not only did McCourty speak highly of playing at Arrowhead in 2018, the year the New England Patriots defeated the Chiefs at home in order to move on to the Super Bowl (the Dee Ford offsides game), but then he even talked trash about KC BBQ. Yeah, the whole thing was asinine. Really, we shouldn’t link it but sometimes you have to do your public service.
It wasn’t until we saw the re-broadcast of it online that we realized why this was so needed at the podium on Friday night. Here’s the Titans sharing the trash talk like it was something they are proud of, which only goes to show how little Mike Vrabel has to celebrate these days. Perhaps they can enjoy their quarterback battle of Will Levis and Malik Willis while sitting in the AFC South basement.
Anyway, kudos to McCourty for spewing stupidity long enough to convince us he should get into politics and for the Titans to finally find a way to get one in on Kansas City. McCourty was offensive but so is the Titans’ roster and everyone has the right to find joy somewhere.
