Titans quarterback needs to worry more about his play than his looks….

mettenbergerThis week Zach Mettenberger was named the starting quarterback of the Tennessee Titans and his opponent J.J. Watt did not like the way he was handling his business. Mettenberger calls himself the “Selfie King” and he made sure he was posting his new hair cut and trimmed look on his social media.

“The plan was always to clean myself up when I was named starter,” he said. “That came a little sooner than I anticipated. With media coming, I wasn’t able to get a haircut, so I thought I’d have fun with it.Ultimately that’s what this game about — it’s about having fun. Anytime you get an opportunity to show some character or personality, you’ve got to make the most of that.”

“I just, I take my job very seriously,” Watt said. “If I was a rookie quarterback being named the starter for the first time in the league, I feel like I’d be a little bit more focused than that.

I bet the next time the two teams face, Mettenberger will worry about #99, because he made the young LSU quarterback pay.  The veteran racked up 2 sacks a forced fumble and a batted ball.
