As we all know, Tennessee Titans safety Bernard Pollard is a man that doesn't mince his words. He'll speak is mind, and when he does, he's usually pissing somebody off. This time around, it's not what he said, it's what he wrote, on his locker to be exact. He has a hand-written message taped to the front of his locker that eloquently reads: “Goal — Super Bowl. Mission — Kill!!!," Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean reported Wednesday. Pollard later put the sentiment into speech: “Our goal is the Super Bowl, and our mission is to kill,” the veteran safety said while pointing to the note. “And if someone doesn’t like it, then who cares? I really couldn’t care less. It is not our responsibility to make anyone else happy, to please you, to care about you." So, with that, came the outrage in our P.C. post-Bountygate world.

Titans expect Pro Bowl play from S Michael Griffin
