Another day, and another “diva” wideout yelling that he’s the best to ever strap ‘em’ up for a franchise. In the hot seat today we have former Tennessee Titans and Ole Miss Rebels star AJ Brown. 

The “freak of nature” Brown was dealt to the Philadelphia Eagles on draft night as Titans brass decided they’d rather not engage in the upcoming contract demands being made and the ridiculous bags of money being shelled out for other wide receivers around the league.

Brown didn’t leave Tennessee under the best circumstances. He fell out with the fans when they called him a villain. The former Ole Miss star responded to the negative fan behavior by tooting his own horn in a tweet. 

“For the love of God, I was the best receiver to play for your franchise. Shut up and move on. You mad at the wrong person,” Brown tweeted.  

While Brown can make a case for most talented to play for the franchise, he’s not the best.

Titans Great Derrick Mason Objects To Brown’s Proclamation

Former Titans wideout Derrick Mason starred for the Titans during the Steve McNair and Eddie George years, when the franchise transitioned from the pass-heavy Houston Oilers offense led by Warren Moon in the ’80s and ’90s to a run-based team. The offense Mason played in is similar to the current offense, which is based around the running of star tailback Derrick Henry. 

Mason, the two-time Pro Bowl player, and one-time All-Pro who finished his Titans career (1997-2004) sixth in touchdown receptions and receiving yards, had this to say. 

Mason not only shined as a receiver he was also an excellent return man for the Titans and a huge part of their 1999 Super Bowl team that came up 1 yard short on the game’s final play. Mason also mentions his durability, highlighting the fact that he was always available to play. 

Here’s what he said to Buck Reising of AtoZ Sports Nashville:

“I had four 1,000-plus yard seasons and missed only six games. But people deal in revisionist history. This isn’t a debate.”

Mason also tweeted how the Titans organization doesn’t honor its greats. 

 

Guess Drew Hill Or Ernest Givens Never Balled Out In The Astrodome?

Drew Hill and Ernest Givens are arguably the two best pass-catchers in the franchise’s history. They played with Hall of Fame quarterback Warren Moon and another talented receiver in Haywood Jeffries.

Hill played seven seasons in H-Town and accrued five 1,000-yard seasons. The other two years, he came close with 989 and 938 yards receiving. Hill was 73 yards from seven consecutive 1000-yard seasons during his career with the Oilers. He’s also the first player to score touchdowns in three different decades (’70s, ’80s, ’90s).

 

 

Hill started 104 of 106 career games, tallying 480 receptions for 7,477 yards and 47 touchdowns.

Givens played nine seasons in Houston, and while he only had one 1000-yard season, he’s still the franchise leader in receiving yards and third in receiving touchdowns.

 

Givens started 138 out of 138 career games for the franchise. The aforementioned Brown was only available for 36 of a possible 49 games during his three-year career in Nashville. Brown was tossing around hyperbole. But that’s to be expected nowadays. The money makes these players oblivious to reality, and short-sighted, uninformed social media co-signs nonsense on a regular basis.
