May 1, 2021 will always be a day that I remember. My wife and I were driving from viewing a house we would eventually call home. We were on our way to her parents’ house which was about a 30-minute drive, and my wife was gracious enough to sit there silently as we listened to the NFL Draft.
Suddenly, the little trade music comes up and the announcers said the Tennessee Titans have traded up in the 4th Round. I let out a big cheer, and Loren asks why is that good. Here is how the conversation went:
Me: “Well, they’re obviously trading up for a wide receiver and one of my favorite guys is still there. Amon-Ra St. Brown.”
Wife: “Oh cool so you think they’ll draft him?”
Me: “They should he’s everything they look for in terms of personality and traits, but there’s also Tylan Wallace and he was at the Senior Bowl.
——The Titans have selected Dez Fitzpatrick——-
Me: “What the fuck. Who is this loser?”
Thus began my never-ending journey to slander Dez Fitzpatrick, and ultimately the decision by Jon Robinson to draft him that high.
You can find my slander on the podcast, outside of Rashaan Evans, he is the most slandered Titans player on the podcast. Here are some examples:
So, after a successful off-season, and stacking good days at camp, do I owe Dez Fitzpatrick an apology?
