    I really think it would be poetic justice if the Titans ditched Fisher (and/or Young) and brought in Volek to compete for the starting position.

    What I am saying is that "Billy Volek" was such a malcontent that Fisher had to bad mouth him to the media. I don't care what he did or did not do. Fisher couldn't handle the likes of Billy Volek at QB.


    There is something about being the "bigger man" in these situations when players get upset. Now you may not want to fault Fisher for acting as an immature baby to the media about Volek and VY. But I do fault him. A "real man" wouldn't have these problems with players. A "real man" wouldn't contradict himself by firing people on the phone then make comments that real men talk face to face. A "real man" wouldn't say I'm not going to comment about this and then continue to do so.

    Hey, I'm just irked about the "real man" comment and all the other fisherspeak double talk over the years that I've complained about ad nauseum.

    Like him or not there's just no denying that, of the QBs currently on the roster, Young gives us the best chance to win. And the odds are heavily stacked against any rookie coming in and playing better than VY. Sure we can move forward with Collins/Rusty/rookie and probably manage. But even the VY haters have to admit he gives us a much better chance to win on any given Sunday than those other guys. Just look out W-L record with Vince vs. Kerry.

    For the record, I do want to draft a QB in the first round. I'm over VY too. But let's not fool ourselves. If he is not on this roster next season then we are most likely going to take a step back in QB production for the immediate future. Unless we go out and get a guy like Kolb or luck out and draft one of those rare rookies who can step right in and play at a high level.

    It's a risk I'm willing to take though.

    Yes, none of these people matter but Finnebosch of gotitans has the final say.

    Like Bo said, noone knows the whole story but Fisher and Vince. I don't condone VY throwing his pads to the stands, but I'm not so sure that the rest of the situation was unwarranted.

    Amen brother. Fish is definitely throwing his weight around on this whole ordeal. These guys watch TV and read the newspapers just like we all do so they know what's being said and Fish knows how to manipulate things to his benefit. Vince isn't a great speaker or PR guy and this is where Fish has the upper hand because he's gonna spin this thing as much as he can.

    I wish that one of the reporters would have asked him "but didn't you fire Norm Chow over the phone, how is that a 'man thing' to do"? His reaction would have been priceless. But you won't ever see the media disrespect the great Jeff Fisher like that because he's such a great coach.

    he had a good reason to be critical of Chow. It took Fisher a while to see it but before he did he got rid of Volek. Nows let hope and pray he gets rid of Young!!!

    considering we rarely throw the long ball Collins should be able to make the short throw. We know Rusty can throw the ball long so swap them out :grrhee:

    You might find some no name coach who will suck up to Young and Bud just to get a chance as a head coach..BFD
