Cornerback Orlando Scandrick was in the vicinity on both of the Tennessee Titans’ first two touchdowns Sunday, and he will readily accept responsibility for one of them. Scandrick said recently that on the first touchdown of the game, a 24-yard bomb from Vince Young to Nate Washington, he should have located the ball and broken up the pass.
On the second, Scandrick alluded to a blown assignment as the culprit, but would not identify which of his teammates blew the assignment--though, it was probably safety Alan Ball, who came over late on the help, Roy L. Williams style.
“I gave up one play,” Scandrick said, per ESPN Dallas. “[Washington] located the ball on the touchdown. That was my fault. I’ve got to find it. On the other play, everybody’s got to do their job. … On the other play to Kenny Britt, there’s 11 people on the field, 11 people got to do their job. We had a miscommunication on the field and it led to a touchdown.”
Still, Scandrick wanted to make clear he wasn’t calling out his teammates.
“Everybody’s got to do their job,” he said. “This is no time to point fingers. I’m not pointing fingers at anybody. If any finger needs to be pointed, it needs to be pointed at myself.”
