Over the years, I’ve listened to a lot of sports commentary.
Most of what you hear on radio spots/television appearances is a bunch of recycled takes and clichés that have been repeated for years.
But every now and then I hear something new that catches me off guard.
That was the case recently when Jason Whitlock, a former ESPN/Fox Sports employee who now writes for Outkick the Coverage, compared Tennessee Titans quarterback Ryan Tannehill to a girl with a “big rack”.
Yeah, you read that right.
Here’s the full clip.
If you can get past the wild analogy, Whitlock does have a valid point. Having Derrick Henry as a running back is definitely a tremendous advantage for Tannehill.
But let’s not forget that former Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota also had Henry at his disposal. And Mariota wasn’t mentioned in any MVP conversations. I don’t think it’s any coincidence that Henry has become a breakout star with Tannehill under center.
Perhaps Henry could work in Whitlock’s analogy, too.
