    Awesome. The whole FO needs to die off somehow... guess we can hope for them all to retire.

    Reinfeldt will probably leave now that his boy-toy is gone. No more mustache rides = no fun at BSP.

    Underwood was the reason BA could sleep in Mooston and not worry about his $1b baby in Nashville.

    I can still cancel that PSL check - lol

    Our entire front office operated like an effing small town McDonalds.

    This firing being a summary. Too late. Terrible timing. etc. Always the case.

    This might shed some light on the subject.

    Sounded like a beaten man? That's the way he talks. Like he's seconds away from death.

    Monotone, mumbling, cant get his words through his porn stache, arsed Fisher.

    I can only imagine his "motivational" locker room speeches. Probably like lullabies.

    Vince Young single handedly destroyed this franchise.

    If anyone destroyed this franchise it would be Jeff Fisher with the stranglehold he's had. Surprised BA had the b*lls to not allow him to hire his son..and decide its time to move on

    Lots of stuff swirling this morning which points to Fisher doing some things behind the scenes which led to yesterday's events.

    It looks like Fisher pushed Bud to extend him for one season just so he could keep most of his coaching staff together, Bud refused.

    It looks like Fisher extended many of his coaches in December without the knowledge of the front office. Cecil was given $1 mil. Fisher's contract stipulates he has final decision on who his coaches are but this seems to border on insubordination if he did this without the approval of Adams. This one leaves me scratching my head because I'd think he'd need Underwood to work up these contracts. If Underwood knew Fisher was doing this, did Fisher mislead him as to when he'd use them or did Underwood not share this with Bud? More light will be shed on this today.

    Note Underwood's contract is up this summer and he's talking retirement.

    Follow this up with Fisher wanting to bring on his son who helped out the team last year when Dinger went upstairs. He signaled in plays. The reason the Titans didn't get Gregg Williams as DC a couple of years back was Williams wanted his son on the coaching staff and the Titans have a policy against relatives on the payroll. Fisher had to know Buds reaction to seeing his son's contract crossing his desk. Fisher claims it's bogus but I could see this really being the final straw.

    "…reality wasn't matching the vision we discussed." points to Fisher not holding up his end of the bargain when Bud gave in and got rid of Vince.

    Today's press conference will be interesting with Underwood, Reinfeldt and Fisher there.

    Basically he tried to pull a fast one and got busted for it and tried to maintain the status quo, which is why we were in this position in the first place.
