After the USC football team’s hit YouTube Video (singing Lean On Me by Bill Withers), head coach Pete Carroll asked Bill Withers to come in to play a joke on the team. Then, Withers had the team sing his song to him. Here’s the video:
This got me thinking. If NFL teams had to sing in the locker room together, which song would they choose. Here’s what I’ve come up with (Click the song title to listen to the song):
Chicago Bears – “Dirt Off Your Shoulder”: Singing some Jay Z to Jay C about brushing his shoulder off should help him remember that he’s got a new offensive line, and his uniform won’t stay as clean as last year.
Indianapolis Colts – “Eye of the Tiger” : With Peyton Manning on their side, any turnaround is possible. Last year, the team started 3-4, but then won 9 in a row. All because of the eye of the Vol Tiger.
Denver Broncos – “Bad Day” : A bad day or a bad off season? Losing Mike Shanahan, Jay Cutler, and possibly Brandon Marshall warrants this tear jerker.
Tennessee Titans – “Sober” : LenDale White dropped 37 lbs in the off season by laying off the hard stuff. Without that belly up at the bar, the Titans run game just got a lot better.
Tampa Bay Bucs – “Forever Young” : Raheem Morris is the youngest head coach in the league. I’m sure as his parents made his sack lunch and told him to take out the garbage they said, “May you grow to be proud, dignified and true, and do unto others as you’d have done to you.”
