This thread isn't about debating whether Fisher should be fired. It's about making sure everyone is aware of something that could be a major problem for the Titans if Fisher is fired. I was listening to the Rich Eisen Podcast this morning and he interviewed Peter King. King said that the current labor troubles in the NFL will mean that no team can hold offseason meetings or workouts with players (at least not until a new deal is reached and that will probably take many months). This could extend all the way to the end of August, meaning that a lot of teams could start the 2011 season without much preparation. This would be a huge problem for any team that wants to hire a new coach. Teams like the Cowboys and Vikings will probably be okay because they can just promote a guy they already have on staff (Jason Garrett and Leslie Frazier already have a head start at putting their systems in place), but a team like the Titans can't really do that. If Fisher goes, I really doubt Heimerdinger will stay on as head coach. This will be an even bigger problem if Vince stays as QB. He's had 5 years to learn the current offense and some people still say he doesn't understand all of it. How is he supposed to learn a brand new offense when he can't even have any meetings with the new coach to learn it? That would be a disaster. I don't know if any of this stuff will influence Bud's decision, but it should. If he decides to keep Vince and let Fisher go, the 2011 season might be a complete write-off before it even begins.
