NFL Coach Said He'd Cut Off His Penis If His Team Wins Super Bowl
Three weeks out from Super Bowl LIV and the most intriguing subplot is not who will lift the Vince Lombardi trophy -- but whether a head coach has to cut his junk off.
Mike Vrabel is facing the prospect of having to fulfill a wild preseason commitment should his Tennessee Titans win the Superbowl; made during an appearance on podcast Bussin' With The Boys.
Taylor Lewan (Host): "Would cut your d*** off for a Super Bowl?"
Vrabel: "Been married 20 years. Yeah, probably."
Before the season started, the Titans were 80-1 outsiders to win (according to Pro Football Reference).
So while he probably had confidence in his team's chances, it seemed highly unlikely a miniature guillotine would need to be set up next to the victory dais.
After a 28-12 demolition of then Super Bowl favourites Baltimore Ravens last Saturday, the Titans are now just one win away from making the Super Bowl; and two from Vrabel needing to make his phallic sacrifice to the sporting gods.
Vrabel is married, with two sons -- a family size wife Jen seems clearly content with after offering to assist with the act.
Following the win over the Ravens, Vrabel discussed whether he'd make good on his penis pact, via Sports Illustrated:
“Listen, I didn’t want to disappoint... when I went on the podcast. I knew they were gonna ask me things that probably, if I just clammed up, [the show] wouldn't be very fun. So I tried to make it as fun as possible.”

Regardless, Vrabel definitely has 'skin in the game'.
And we all have a team to barrack for come Super Bowl LIV.
