Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver AJ Brown makes a grand proclamation about himself, while trying to assert his dominance over a Tennessee Titans fan on Twitter.
Nobody thinks AJ Brown is the greatest wide receiver in Houston Oilers/Tennessee Titans history more than the new Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver himself.
Admittedly, it was a great three-year run for the former Ole Miss standout in Nashville, but the dude did not even make it an olympiad in the Music City. In fact, all three players who orchestrated the Home Run Throwback to Music City Miracle the Buffalo Bills were better Titans that Brown (Lorenzo Neal to Frank Wycheck to Kevin Dyson, who could ever forget?). Feelings are still hurt.
Here is Brown going after a Titans fan proclaiming he is the best thing ever happen to the Titans through the air in their robust 60-plus years as a professional football franchise.
“For the love of God, I was the best receiver to play for your franchise. Shut up and move on. You mad at the wrong person,” tweeted Brown at a Titans fan who was still mad that he bailed on some kids at a camp.
AJ Brown really showed this Tennessee Titans fan on Twitter, alright
Look. Here is to nothing but the very best for Brown and his new team. The 2022 Eagles are going to be awesome. They cannot only win the NFC East, but could get to a conference title out if all goes their way this fall. No doubt about it, he is a hall-of-fame talent at the peak of his powers, but three years in Nashville does not give him the right to say he is the Titans’ best wideout ever.
In his 43 career games for the Titans, Brown had 185 catches for 2,995 receiving yards and 24 touchdowns. Had he replicated that over three more seasons, sure, but here is where he ranks all time in Oilers/Titans lore: 111th in games played, 19th in receptions, 16th in yardage and 12th in touchdowns. Charley Hennigan, Ernest Givins, Derrick Mason and others would all like a word…
Ultimately, all involved with the Eagles and Titans need to move on from this. Both teams are expected to do big things. However, each has at least one team in-division they are competing for a crown with. Philadelphia will battle the Dallas Cowboys for NFC East supremacy this fall, while Tennessee hopes to keep the Indianapolis Colts from overtaking them in the AFC South standings.
Brown should absolutely channel his inner Lane Kiffin and just be done with Tennessee in general.
