Indeed, even true blue NFL geniuses submit punishments now and again.
Be that as it may, infrequently do they so unmistakably and unequivocally get under the skin of the mentor afterward, similar to the case with star Titans recipient Julio Jones and mentor Mike Vrabel.
Right off the bat in the game, Jones got hit for a 15-yard unsportsmanlike direct punishment that saw the Titans go from taking a gander at a third-and-1 circumstance to an undeniably less sensible third-and-16 while following 10-0 in the principal quarter.
It was the perfect start of a dull presentation for both Jones — who had three gets for only 29 yards — and for the Titans, who lost to Arizona 38-13 and surrendered five sacks to Chandler Jones.
“That was literally nothing we mentor, or educate,” Vrabel said in regards to Jones’ punishment, which he additionally said “harms the group.”
