Titans running back LenDale White, always a tireless worker and student of the game, was slightly annoyed following yesterday's loss to the New York Jets. It's only natural to be upset after your team loses its first game of the season, but that's not really the issue here.
The issue, of course, is that White was so upset with his lacking of playing time -- he had one carry -- that he openly admitted to not paying attention on the sidelines, and, pretty much, not caring. But, hey, don't take my word for it, take LenDale's:
"I only played three plays, so I couldn't really tell you what happened (in the loss to the Jets), I have no idea. I wasn't paying attention so I didn't care." "I don't know if I had gotten the ball 30 times if we'd have won the game or not," said White.
"I would like to be involved more, or if I'm not involved I'd like somebody to tell me what's going on." "Coming into these games, you expect to get certain carries or certain things going on, or at least that's what they tell you. Then you get in these games and just randomly play three plays," White added.
"I wish somebody would let me know what's going on before I go out there." "I mean three plays, I don't know what you want me to do with three plays. I don't know what three plays is helping me do."
Believe it or not, this is a guy playing for a team that's 10-1!
