Titans GM Jon Robinson: 'Please let us earn your support'

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- New Tennessee Titans general manager Jon Robinson, who’s from Union City in West Tennessee, closed the news conference introducing him and coach Mike Mularkey with this statement

“If you only remember one thing from this presser, please remember this, and this goes out to our fans: This is my home and you guys are my family. I’ve been a Titans fan ever since ’97 when this football team moved here. We’re going to build this team the right way. All decisions that we make will be made in the best interests of this team, your football team. Please let us earn your support.

“I grew up on a small 10-acre farm in West Tennessee. I watched my dad get up every morning and drive to a tire plant where he worked for 30-plus years. My mother packed his lunch box before he walked out. I helped work that farm as supplemental income. I know what hard work is. Coach knows what hard work is. I was part of an organization in New England for 12 years that is still the standard of excellence today. We’re ready to go to work for you, because you’re our family. Thank you.”

That’s going to resonate in Nashville for sure.
