Titans do just swine with their first-round pick

    The Titans wanted someone who could be nasty in the trenches. So naturally, they drafted a guy who used to live with a pig.

    Jim Wyatt of the Tennesseean dropped that little porcine nugget on us from tackle Taylor Lewan’s introductory press conference in Nashville, and Lewan said “I feel like my professionalism is going out the window.”

    Oh goodness, no, Taylor. You just got a lot more popular around here.

    We simply had to know more, so we found this ESPN.com story from his Michigan days, which tells us about Dr. Hamlet III, the pig in question.

    “It was fun for about two weeks,” Lewan said. “Then the pig got kind of mean. We weren’t neglecting it or anything. We were being sweet to it.

    “I thought it was going to be a good deal, but I didn’t realize the hooves of a pig struggle so hard with the tile. It got in the kitchen one time, and it was like watching Bambi on the ice, if you’ve ever seen that movie. It was so comical.”

    Realizing a college apartment wasn’t the appropriate place to raise swine, Lewan and his teammates eventually did the right thing.

    “So we decided that the best thing for the pig was to give it away, and now he’s a happy pig,” Lewan said. “We sent it to a farm where it could do pig things.”

    One of these days, Lewan will root out veteran Michael Roos for the left tackle job. Until then, we’ll be looking for a personalized Titans jersey with “Ziffel” on the back.

    I agree. I'm a transplant to TN I got here during eggheads time at UT. Never understood the love for him. He never won the big game and the year after he left UT went undefeated and won the championship.

    Go figure

    I'm sure he had a reason. Like the pig threatened to report a rape or something.

    Reading the transcript, that conversation sounds hilarious.

    Did they not record the video? Can't find it.

    So in other words he was afraid the pig would squeal on him?

    It's been that way ever since, poor Tee Martin didn't get any love, just because he's not Peyton. But who went undefeated? Who has a championship under their belt? He certainly don't, I will never understand why everybody has such a boner for him.
