As the kicker for the Tennessee Titans, Rob Bironas’ job sometimes means winning the game with just his foot. However, it also means sitting around for a majority of the game waiting for his moment.

So what exactly does a kicker do during the three-plus hours that his teammates are on the field? We recently sat down with Bironas to find out.

On staying loose…

“When I start warming up, I always kick from the 42 or 43 yardline and take my first kicks, trying to make it land on the crossbars. It’s a little game I play.”

Playing head cheerleader…

“Most of all, above everything else, I pay attention to the game. I like watching us win. I love that. That’s probably No. 1.”

Speaking of cheerleaders…

“I always watch the cheerleaders do their dances.”

On taunting the cops …

“I like to mess with the cop on the sidelines at home games. One officer is always in my warm-up area. I like giving him a hard time. I try to hit his dispatch button a lot, because if I hit it, they call back asking him what he wanted. That’s always fun to do.”

On taunting others in game…

“The guy that does the clocks – the time outs. He wears those big orange ovenmit looking gloves. He always puts one behind his back so they can only see one. I always try to snag it off his arm, because you can’t wave two of them if he’s not wearing two of them. I like messing with people on the sidelines, in a good sense of humor, though.”

Gets his drink on …

“I drink a lot of energy drinks … I like to be hyped up and sparked up.”

Gets tattooed …

“I always have to put on my “Say I Won’t” tattoo. Say I can’t do something … know I will do it.”

Oh, right, and about those kicks…

“I am 150% focused when I am on the field,” he says. “Nothing can get in my zone. Nothing can get in my head. But when I’m not on the field, I can’t stay that focused for three and a half or four hours. That’s a lot of concentration.”
