Fine but what would you suggest?A new coach NOW ? ride the season out I say
Thanks jokerama8....I understand the 'traditional' thinking here, but at my age...I may not be around to enjoy a few wins.
Let's put it this way...I'll be climbing my way up to my seats in Sec 311 when I'm 93 if the team stays here that long. That's when my 30 years runs out.
So, some can wait, some can't. As much as I have been a 'booster' for Jeff for all this time......I can no longer support him.
For some reason, we all can find a reason for the teams problems...it's Mcnair, it's VY, it's a cornerback here, or a end there. It may even be the owner or the manager, but we never (or seldom ever) want to believe that it's Jeff Fisher!
News Flash!!!!!! Fisher can be the problem as much as any other individual. In this regard, just as Fisher 'benched' Kearse....Bud should bench Jeff!!!!
That's life, that's football, that's the NFL. a minimum of three coaches are in trouble right now. One can no longer make the calls. (Jeff is on that list of three.) So let's do IT!!!!!!
I predicted the game and it's outcome on Saturday night. This predicition came from the most up to date searching of newpaper accounts, interviews, TV and the internet. Just as any Vegas Casino would do, I came to a similiar conclusion. The only real difference I missed .... it snowed instead of rained!
Oh well, you can't win them all. (But can't we win one out of 8?)
Well I can see your point and I would like to see change sooner rather than later..I really do not think this team has a chance until they change ownership IMO and that may not happen in your lifetime or mine!
I'd love to see a change right now but I dont recall any teams that had mid season changes doing well as a result.Whomever gets the interim job usaully ends up getting a chance at full season afterwards and often not with any real success.
It's easy to point the finger at Bud and he was an interfering owner in his younger years.
I don't think he's cheap if that's the criticism that you had.A team that goes through salary cap hell doesn't go through that by being cheap.
Our front office are frugal and every teams fans believe there owners short change them wee the team doesn't get the big name free agents. Big spenders like Dallas and the Redskins show that it doesn't work though.
I think the main question here is would the Titans suck this bad with another coach at the helm??? What i mean is would the Titans be at 0-6 with cohwer, shanahan or any other big name coach at the helm and i think the answer to that question is yes. I really find it hard to belive that a team would just stop listening to a coach and his message in 1 season. One minute the whole team buys in to Fisher ( 13-3 last year) and the next minute nobody is listening to Fisher ( 0-6 this season) This is Titans fans trying to grasp on to something on why there team is 0-6 and the media just trying to make a story. I would be lying if i sat here and said i know why the team has made a drastic turn for the worse but i really dont think jeff fisher should be the scape goat. is Fisher responsible?? Yes but I really think everyone is to blame and now everyone needs to come together, find out why this is happening and fix the problem but i really dont think firing fisher now or in the off season is the answer.
I know one big problem the Titans have and its not Jeff Fisher its Vince Young. It would not surprise me if in between sucking his thumb and nap time VY spreads negativity through out the Titans locker room and it being a major problem. VY is not our QB of the future so lets move on and cut this cancer before it spreads even more.
Couldn't have said it better myself. Stop hatin' on Fisher (or at least singling him out).
1 more thing everyone is forgetting that the Titans looked awesome against the steelers on opening night and probably should have won that game but they didnt. They looked pretty good in the next two games against the texans and jets and should have won those two games if it wasnt for stupid turnovers which have nothing to do with coaching. Yes the last 3 games have been a disaster but honestly they have been playing with 2 rookie cornerbacks who are absolutly horrible and have no business on this team what so ever. The titans should have gone out and picked up a couple of vetern cornerbacks in free agency when finnegan and nick harper went down. i really dont feel that Fisher and his staff should be fired over 3 bad games and its very easy to get down as a football team when you loose the way the titans did in the 1st 3 games.
Vince Young may very well be the reason Fisher has lost the team, but unless Young has abilities to spin and campaign that would make Democrats and Republicans alike sick with envy, he cannot cause what we're seeing by words or actions.
Fisher believes you don't forget how to coach overnight, but we're supposed to believe that all the players forget how to play overnight instead...
Again, if 1 player constantly performs badly, it's a personnel issue. When multiple players constantly perform badly it's a coaching issue.
Am I wrong in remembering that Fish came in during mid-season as an interim HC, after the HC was fired?
