    Kuharsky has a pair to really get down after it, but I have yet hear him do it in person at a press conference. I heard a few of the questions, and I have to tell you Biddle is the lamest of lame.

    The fans, who pay them a kings ransom to run an outfit that plays a kids game, wants them in the hot seat. It's the media's job to ask the hard questions (they don't have to be "rabid").
    We need Sam Donelson to probe into this mess and get our answers.

    Well, things are pretty much just like us in Tampa Bay. Last week Chuckie went before the media and apologized for their dismal performance, and said they would get things fixed. That was when they put up a doughnut. They got things corrected alright, they put up 3 on the scoreboard.

    The same can be said for the 0-2 Panthers, the 0-2 Texans

    The press isnt going to make the team better or worse, but a lot of people spend a lot of money on season tickets, or individual tickets or whatever, and I think it is the media's job to ask the questions that we as fans, want answered. Obviously its just football so they shouldnt get too worked up over it, but I do think they should be a little tougher, especially with some of the idiotic moves they have made recently.

    One reporter asked "What does Kerry Collins bring to the Titans that Volek does not?"

    Fisher answered softly "Experience."

    Hahahahaha!

    Fisher's comments can be seen/heard at nfl.com in the highlights video dept.

    I watched it and was appalled. He really thought he was covering his butt by saying "If you're looking for someone to blame, then blame me"...the arrogance in which he stated that became clear in his following remarks (denial of QB controversy, he's gonna keep on cause he's right, etc...).

    Fisher has no intention of accepting any responsibility. He said that because he thinks that you, the fans, are a bunch of idiots and he knows what he's doing because, after all, he's been one of the longest-tenured HCs ever. He knows you'll blame him, and he's condescendingly pandering to that.

    This is Nero's Rome...where's my fiddle?

    I said it elsewhere here, and I'll say it agian: Fisher has REACHED HIS POINT OF INCOMPETENCE. Arrogance like this is the first and most glaring stage of it.

    He says he's going to continue doing what he's doing because he knows it's right....CLEARLY it is NOT working. 12-Step programs call this insanity....repeating an action or behavior over and over while expecting a different result. That definition applies to our esteemed HC.

    While it has been very easy to point fingers lately--bad coverage, poor execution, etc, etc,---Fisher has, with this press conference, pulled back the wool and exposed us to where the true problem is, and it's from the top down, starting with him.

    If Bill Parcells was the coach of the Titans and just experienced that embarrassing performance against the Bolts, his press conference would have been something like this....

    Bill Parcells..... "Let me start off by saying we suck... next question"

    Media..... "Bill, why not start Billy Volek over Kerry Collins?"

    Bill Parcells..... "We suck... next question"
