Game Over Pacman?

Game Over Pacman?

If were to believe what Titans head coach Jeff Fisher says, the organization has finally washed its hands of embattled star Adam "Pacman" Jones.

"I don't know whether it's true or not, but, to me I've moved on," said Fisher last week about Jones' latest brush with police in Atlanta following a late night rendezvous at an Atlanta area strip club. "Whether it's true, it's Pac's issue and if it's not true, it's Pac's issue. It's no longer our issue. We've moved on and we will just wait and see what happens."

Second year QB Vince Young echoes Fisher's sentiments, accusing Pacman of not caring about his team. "We want him to know these guys over here, we love him a whole lot, but we feel like he don't care about us right now," said Young following last Thursday's minicamp practice at Baptist Sports Park.

"At the same time that's his issue. He has got too take care of his problem. We want him back here, to come back over here playing and making plays because he does a whole lot for our team but as a team we are feeling like ‘Man does he care about us over here?'"

Young brings up a good point. Does he care about this team, his teammates and his employer?

He took out a full-page ad in The Tennessean less than two months ago, apologizing to the team, the town and the fans. Leading many to believe perhaps the embattled star had finally learned his lesson and his troubled past was behind him.

Again, everybody gave Pacman what they always have; another chance.

Talk is cheap and as far as I can tell, that's all he's good for.

Whether it's spitting in a women's face, grabbing her by the hair, bouncing her head off the floor all the while biting a bouncer's ankle and threatening to kill him and…. I think you get the point. In short, no, Pacman could care less about the organization or anything associated with it. His actions before and since issuing the apology and vowing to change his ways speak much louder than his words ever could.

With Pacman, the more he says things change the more they stay the same. Pacman obviously can talk the talk. Walking the walk, however, has proven much more difficult.

If in fact Fisher and the Titans have "moved on," the next question is what took them so long?

Better late than never I suppose but not until Jones' name is officially removed from the roster will I believe the Titans have truly ridded themselves of this cancer. For now, it's simply lip service. My contention remains if the team were truly tired of Pacman's numerous and notorious antics, new NFL commissioner Roger Goodell wouldn't have had to do the team's dirty work for them and suspend him for the entire season.

For the sake of redundancy I won't review the rather lengthy police blotters containing the name Adam Jones. I'm sure we've all become extremely familiar with it by now.

Since arriving in the Music City Pacman has done nothing but embarrass a class organization, it's town and it's fans. Enough is enough.

There's nothing wrong with second chances but this is getting ridiculous.

Sorry Pacman, Game Over. Recommended Stories
