    I'd like to point a perception . . or should I say misperception that some of you had regarding how Carr behaved on the sideline when he was benched. The TV showed shots of David standing there 'pouting', with his hands grabbing his pads. And from the those TV shots, some of you concluded that he was not being a team player, was self-centered, was not perticipating in discussions with Kubiak and Sage, etc, etc, etc.

    Well, some of these 'perceptions' got to John McClain. His response to this, and his responses to posters in general, are some very interesting reading. I'll just paste a quote regarding David's attitude, and let y'all read the rest of it in the link.

    I read that and I believe McClain. They showed Carr maybe 5 times with his hands holding his jersey. I didn't really see any pouting from Carr. He looked disappointed, but who wouldn't after being benched?

    My seats are 20 rows up on the visitors side. When he got benched and for the rest of the game he stood on the sidelines with his arms crossed and didn't speak to anyone. He didn't talk to Sage or motivate the offense. He just stood there. He actually had his helmet on the entire time, it was weird. He never took his helmet off.

    The guy isn't a leader.

    I have picture evidence that what you just said is not true. Your argument just lost steam, Tack fan. I think you were looking at the wrong person (assuming this isnt just a fabrication).

    Funny how things translate in person v. television. Carr was the first one to congratulate Rosenfels after he threw a TD pass. As far as crossing his arms -many players pull their pads/ jersey down to get air..... in through the necks of their jersey..... Geeeez people!! :brickwall

    You sat there and stared at DC every second for the remainder of the game?? That's odd. Are you a woman? Or is it manlove?:backsout:

    Mario Williams does the very same thing when he stands on the sidelines.

    Haha, I just responded when I noticed how blatantly incorrect it was. Like you said.... he didn't have his arms crossed either. He ALWAYS has his hands holding onto the V-neck of his jersey.

    You must be right. I'm sure you were watching the offense going over strategy on the sideline during plays while our defense was on the field.

    Am I the only one who hates how the media tries to create drama? Every time Sage did something good (TD's) or something bad (pick, punt) they immediately showed Carr on the sideline. Maybe they should focus on the players in the actual game instead of trying to create a story.

    They do the exact same thing with Terrell Owens. Focus on the game CBS, Fox, NBC, ESPN and every other media outlet!!

    It's Wednesday. What are you still doing on our boards? Is there nothing to discuss on the Titans' board? We don't need you here to insult the leader of our team. Buzz off.

    What do you want the guy to do??? Who get's benched and then prances around on the sideline like every thing is hunky-dory??? Who does that?? Who have you ever seen get yanked, and act like nothing happened ??? Be serious....

    And he may have had his helmet on to listen to what was going on....

    That is a silly reason to say he isn't a leader....

    me....I think he's not a great leader for other reasons...

    Thanks for posting, Marcus.

    When McLain talks about "posts", I assume he means comments to his blog and not the forum? Just curious if ol' John is a lurker (as I'm sure some of the 610 guys are hiding in the bushes around here...hi Lance & John!)

    Oh.My.Gawd!!! He CROSSED his ARMS?!! Only chumps and sore losers do that. Body language is everything.

    Obviously, I'm just yanking your chain, bro'. You are one of the cooler Titans fans on the board.

    I was wondering about the television shots during the game. I swear I saw the same shot being used over and over, even with a guy behind DC eating a hot dog over and over again. Maybe the network - being the soulless corporate types they are - is trying to foment a little controversy... :hmmm:

    When I saw him he was climbing into the stands and buying beer from the vendors. I'm not sure if he's s'posed to do that, but he seemed kinda happy to me.

    How do you come to OUR board, and just flat out lie like that!?

    Do you realize how damaging this is to your overall reputation?

    I guess not...
