Extra Sound: George Wilson Sees the Big Picture

Posted by Joe Fann on August 1, 2014 – 1:07 pm

I spoke with Titans safety George Wilson yesterday and he had multiple quotes that stood out. If you want to talk about a guy who “gets it,” it’s Wilson. Here is some of the best from that interview.

Wilson on the work the team has to put in with the new coaching staff:

“At the end of the day we’re behind compared to some teams who have returning staffs. We’ve _2JR6817accepted the challenge and know the work we have ahead of us. Guys aren’t trying to cut corners or take the easy way out. Everybody is out there trying to push the same direction. We need to continue to take one step each and every day we’re on the practice field.”

Wilson on his respect for head coach Ken Whisenhunt:

“He comes with such credibility. Just with the presence coach Whiz brought into the first team meeting, guys bought in to what he was preaching. We broke down into offense and defense and guys responded to the coordinators. We haven’t had any issues with guys going their own directions or trying to do their own thing. If you’re an individual you won’t be in this locker room.”

On his role as a leader:

“I just try to be a second set of eyes on the sideline to help guys know what adjustments need to be made. When I see someone having a tough time I try to break it down for them so whatever their experience it’s understandable. My job is to try to make it easier for the other ten guys.”

On the different mindset for the defense despite returning most of the 2013 cast:

“It’s totally different. The scheme is different than what we played a year ago. The coaching staff is different. Our approach as a team is different. Guys have certainly bought in to the changes have been made. Guys are eager to get out and practice. There is a sense of urgency. Guys want to turn the tide of the Titans organization.”

On players holding themselves accountable:George Wilson

“There is accountability. No one wants to make a mistake and let everyone else down. We accept the coaching whether it comes from a coach or a teammate. It’s a brotherhood here. We all just want to win and we have to depend on each other to do that.”

On having fun at what he does:

“Man it’s only a grind if you make it. I love every aspect of this job. I don’t even look at it as work. I’m living my dream every day. I wouldn’t want to be doing anything else anywhere else. I don’t look at it as the dog days, I’m around my brothers. This is my family and I am doing what I love to do.”
