    from this week's Sporting News:

    NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Jeff Fisher doesn't keep a cot in his office, even though he has slept on the leather couch a few times.

    "I come to work, go home," he said. "I'm going to be at a high school football game on Friday night, take my vacation time. It is a very complicated, sophisticated, complex -- and I think other people would say pressure-oriented -- business," the Tennessee Titans' coach said. . . .

    VY bought him another 4-5 years minimum. But he was close to going out. Both before the draft of Young, and when his stubborn commitment to Collins was holding the team back. But I give him credit, he put away his pride and put VY in. That saved his job. It really did. And now, he's going to have a nice run with VY and Lendale White.

    why is LenWhale gonna fetch Fisher and Young some Krispy Kreme and coffee or something.

    Seriously White has not earned anything at all. I would love to see a return of the power run game to Tennessee, certainly I think LW can deliver, but he ain't done it on sunday yet.

    Which is why it bought him some time. Young players with potential who haven't done anything buy coaches time. You are allowed to lose with young players. And when you win like we will, you were the one who brought them along.

    As I recall PSJ, it did not exactly go down like that. I think Bud Adams put Fisher's pride aside and said play the kid.

    Or, maybe it had just reached the point where VY was finally ready to play.

    GoT..

    There isn't any more evidence that lendale won't be a good player than there is suggesting he will. If someone believes he will be a good player why knock it? Another lame fat joke doesn't lend anything to the discussion. From what i hear lendale is not over weight at all in camp..

    That's exellent news. Because there's a chance that the team is going to rely on him in a big way.

    No pun intended. ;)

    No, as I recall it was more like Fisher saying every week that he is improving but he isn't ready yet. Media question, "when will he be ready?" Fisher response, well he isn't there yet. Next day Bud Adams says something to the effect "play the kid." Sunday, Vince starts and all is well in Titan land.
