    SUMMARY: Rumors about Titans coach Jeff Fisher leaving for another head coaching job have run rampant the last few weeks. The truth is that Fisher is under contract until the end of the 2006 season and has an option that keeps him head coach of the Titans into 2007. Chances that Titans owner Bud Adams fires Fisher due to back-to-back horrendous seasons are slim because Adams isn't going to make the same mistake he made after the 1980 season when he fired Bum Phillips — the most popular coach in Oilers history. The Oilers failed to make the playoffs the next six seasons. Asked why rumors of him leaving have been common the last couple of months, Fisher replied, "I have no idea. I'm under contract, and I have no interest in leaving. I think when teams struggle and people begin to speculate about potential changes, there are all kinds of rumors that fly around. Year after year, there have been all kinds of rumors that never come true."

    I'm surprised Bud remembers back to the 80s.

    McClain's been saying that for months; it's good to see him devote a column to it. Not that it will quell many rumors.

    It would be smart to resign Fisher to a long term deal... not allowing him to enter the last year of his contract. This off season use that option year and rework a new one.

    salary cap hell comes and goes. it's what happens when you have talented players and you're trying to win. it's starting to happen to the colts, and it already happened to the jags. it's a part of football now.
