    The amazing part is how fast they turn on players.

    It's like a switch. 3 weeks ago "Kenny is about to blow up! YAAAAYYYY!"

    now it's "KENNY HAD SEX WITH MY MOM!! NOOOOOO!!!"

    I'd just be happy for my mom. Kenny is a catch for a woman in her 50's.

    Yea, I boo'd Britt on the first play (and I want him gone), but I was really worried for him out there when he landed on his head. It looked pretty bad, and I would've been worried for any player in the league if I saw that - other than maybe Ray Lewis :D

    Fans root for the guys who help us win. KB was a budding superstar WR a while back and played like it at times. injuries and off the field stuff has soured everyone on him so his play on the field needs to be excellent for them to root for him again.

    Look at AROD of the Yankees. Guy couldn't have done much more wrong short of seelling roids to kids outside the stadium himself. But he lied to the fans, to baseball, actually was a spokesman for kids not to use steroids all the while not only using them, but encouraging a lot of other players to use them too. That's low!

    BUT, the Yankess only chance at getting to the playoffs was a healthy AROD and when he came back, he produced so guess what, the fans cheered him when he helped and booed him when he didn't.

    As for this year, Britt has hurt us more then he's helped which is why all the negative comments. On top of that, football players tend to play better in a contract year which furthers the disappointment for his poor play.

    Understand, KB dropping a ball because he landed on his head is understandable and I doubt anyone is blaming him for that. Additionally, that block in the back call when Wright had the ball was a terrible call and I wouldn't blame him for that.

    But for a guy crying for the ball and actually getting a deep sideline pass one on one off playaction on 3rd and 3...only to try and body catch it and the ball bounce off your shoulder pad, is inexcusable. Holding on running plays because he got lazy is also unacceptable! He has a chance to play because of his talent but if he's too lazy to use it effectively, he's gonna be gone...and sooner then he thinks if this continues.

    To put it in perspective, Delaney Walker messed up by dropping that pass and deflecting it toward a defender but he didn't give up on the play and it prevented us from losing it right there. Britt isn't showing that kind of do whatever it takes attitude on the field I think the titans are looking for. He doesn't have to be perfect, but they expect him to play his tail off! So far, he hasn't been. And furthermore, I don't think Locker trusts him.

    I wouldn't be surprised for Britt to have less than 15 snaps this weekend.

    lol. I've been saying he's garbage ever since he tore his ACL against denver. He's dog crap now, he can't catch anything, runs slower than a 60 year old grandma, and doesn't want to block. He's terrible.

    he's arguably the worst receiver on an nfl roster bar none.

    No one has argued that the ACL tear was pretty much the end of Britt. But I seriously doubt the moment it happened you said he was garbage all due to an injury. He was one of the NFL's best receivers the first couple weeks.

    He's been playing badly, but worst WR in the NFL? You are over-exaggerating for effect, and it's not working.

    Don't worry there are multiple people here saying that Britt fell the wrong way and it was his fault for landing on his head

    Exactly. Seems like everyone was onboard the bandwagon all offseason. A few games in and he's already on the chopping block and being called the worst player ever by fans of his own team! Craziness...

    15 might even be high. This is not looking good for Kenny.

    Poor play 2weeks ago, tweet, horrible day Sunday, now were hearing about a rib injury.

    The fact its a "rib injury" is suspicious to me.
