There is no player or coach in the National Football League that doesn’t want to win a Super Bowl. Tennessee Titans head coach Mike Vrabel still wants to make sure everyone knows just how committed he is.
The topic of the discussion was Matt Neeley, an assistant for the show, saying he would make “the ultimate sacrifice” for a Super Bowl ring. The ultimate sacrifice in this case being ... self-castration. While Lewan said the exchange was a no-go for him, Vrabel, who we should note already has three Super Bowl rings from his time as a New England Patriots player, seemed willing.
The full, unreal conversation via Paul Kuharsky:
Lewan: Matt Neely (an assistant for the show) said he would cut off his dick for a, uno, Super Bowl, and I said, No I would not do that. Would you cut your d--- off for a Super Bowl?
Vrabel: Been married 20 years. Yeah, probably.
Lewan: You’ve got three?!
Vrabel: As a player.... You guys will be married for 20 years one day. You won’t need it.
Lewan: If you come home with a bag of ice, and Jen is like ‘Oh honey what did you do.’ I cut …my d--- off, we’re gonna win a Super Bowl, she’d be like ‘eh,’ or would she be upset?
Vrabel: She’d be like do you want me to do it? Do you want to do it now?
Whether or not he was serious, Vrabel might have an interesting conversation on his hands with his wife when he returns home.
Now in his second year with the Titans, the former All-Pro linebacker went 9-7 as a rookie head coach last season. After a solid offseason that saw the additions of Rodger Saffold, Cameron Wake and Adam Humphries, we’ll see if the team takes another step forward. And just what kind of sacrifice that requires.
