On Monday, Rosenthal revealed that he has a man-crush on Titans linebacker Colin McCarthy.

The league office approves of that message.

McCarthy has been named the AFC’s defensive player of the week, thanks to nine tackles, two fumble recoveries, and a forced fumble in a 23-17 win over the Bills.

A rookie from Miami picked in the fourth round of the draft, McCarthy is the first Titan to secure the honor since linebacker Keith Bulluck in 2009.
