Just like college? ATV off to a great start in Tennessee.(Photo by Lisa Blumenfeld/Getty Images)
As uclafan11 noted in the fanshots ATV enjoyed a spectacular start to his NFL career by getting a pick in his first exhibition game against Chetey Petey's Seahawks. To make it even better apparently Chetey challenged the interception but the pick was upheld. Well, ATV came over to Music City Miracles (SBN's Titan blog) and reflected on his "NFL debut":
Now on to the preseason game, which was just extremely exciting. Finally able to put on the official gear of the Titans!!!! Seeing the #20 jersey and the slick blue pants got me so fired up in the locker room. Seeing the equipment and everything was almost overwhelming. From the national anthem, which is the first time I have heard it before a game in a long time, till the end I was just having fun playing a game I love. I felt my performance was decent, but I still have a lot to build on from this game and I am looking forward to that challenge.
I felt that our offense put up a great effort and they will be a force this year, mainly because of CJ. But Vince Young looked impressive to me as well. So I am definitely excited to see them more and more and when they start opening up their playbook as well.
Defensively I thought we played well too, just had little assignment miscues that can be coached. but people were making plays. Mouton nice interception, J-Mac making plays all over the field, Tulloch was flying around. Everyone was contributing and we were flying around like in practice.
Unless, I completely missed it, nowhere in his post ATV mentioned about his interception, playing up his individual accomplishment. As he has always done, he focused his post on his team-mates and the Titans.
Just another classic Bruin, making us proud of those four letters even after moving on from Westwood.
