Mercury Morris a fan of unbeaten Titans

After basically rooting against the New England Patriots last year, NFL player Mercury Morris – who was a member of the undefeated 1972 Miami Dolphins – is backing the Tennessee Titans and their quest for perfection.

“If the Titans show up [in the Super Bowl with a perfect record], they would be exactly like we were. Nobody believed after the 10th game, the 12th game, the 16th game,” Morris said on ESPN’s First Take on Monday.

The 1972 Dolphins, who went 14-0 and then won three playoff games, are the last team to go undefeated. Morris rushed for 1,000 yards and 12 touchdowns that season.
The Titans improved to 10-0 Sunday with a 24-14 victory at Jacksonville. New England finished the regular season 16-0 in 2007 but lost in the Super Bowl against the New York Giants, failing to finish undefeated.

“The Patriots, you people were crowning them after the second game and the season was a formality. I kept trying to tell you,” Morris said on First Take.

What, since nobody thinks the Titans can go undefeated Morris is all about them? Yet because the Pats were a juggernaut and everyone bought into their quest for perfection, Morris wanted them to fail?

Is anybody else sick of this guy? I’m afraid that ESPN is going to keep going to Morris for his brilliant commentary every season while teams remain undefeated and that makes me feel sad inside.
