LB: That's exactly what he asked me that day. He said, "What are you doing out here?"
What did you say to him after the game?
LB: Nothing after the game. But we were in Chicago [later in the series], he was down there in the post trying to guard me. And I said, "You better get out of here. Get back out on that perimeter."
If we play H-O-R-S-E, what's your go-to shot?
LB: Probably the one behind the backboard, right behind it. You haven't got the strength to get it over.
If I give you 10 shots behind the backboard, how many do you make?
LB: Now? I don't know if I could get it over now.
Before he threw for 387 yards in a win over the Cardinals, Titans QB Vince Young was taking heat for his middling numbers. But even before Sunday's explosion, Deion Sanders told me that the only number that mattered to him was Young's perfect winning percentage. "Some of those statistics we throw out to validate a point—they're just ludicrous," Sanders said. "[Young] wins."
