Titans safety Kevin Byard insults Blake Bortles to make a point about Tom Brady.
1. Another week, another NFL player insults Blake Bortles. You'll recall a little while back that Texans defensive lineman Jadevenon Clowney called the Jaguars QB, "trash." Now we have Titans All-Pro safety Kevin Byard revealing what Tennessee wants to do against New England during their playoff game this Saturday.
Maybe Byard watched Bortles try to complete a pass last week against the Bills (he was 12 of 23 for 87 yards), but he could've used many other quarterbacks to make his point. For some reason, Bortles seems like the NFL whipping boy at the moment.
It's not just NFL players who go out of their way to knock Bortles. Former Buccaneers QB, Chris Simms, went on Dan LeBartard's ESPN Radio show yesterday that he ranks Bortles as the 70th-best quarterback in the NFL. This didn't sit well with former Jacksonville offensive lineman Tony Boselli, who called in and went savage on Simms.
