    This off-season FA "Plan" thing that Fisher and Reinfeldt are executing is giving me a sneaky feeling regarding Fisher's future.

    Does anybody know Fisher's contract status? I'm suspicious that the little or no moves in FA thus far and preserving cap space is Fisher's way to "leave the woodpile a little higher". Underproduction or a record less than 8-8 would also bode an exit for Fisher.

    I realize this is crazy talk but is anybody else suspicious?

    It does seem curious, but why would Fisher want to lose in his last contract year? His stock will be higher if he wins. I do get the feeling he will not be here next year.

    Huh? That doesn't make any sense. If he wanted to leave next year, he'd be a lot more attractive with a good season, not having gone four years without a winning record.

    I think Fisher will generate alot of interest/offers even if we have less than 3 wins next year.

    His stock has always been high. Even when we were 4-12 he was still one of the best.

    Yes, Fisher if not on the Titans sideline will easily be offered a tenure elsewhere very quick. As far as making the woodpile a little higher, I don't think that would have anything to do with his departure from Nashville.

    I doubt it..
    the over conservative stance Fisher is practicing leads me to believe that he is truely concerned about the team's long term benefit, and is working hard to avoid temptations in order to protect the team from falling into a salary cap crises 2 or 3 years from now when he is still head coach.

    If he knew he was leaving next season, he would have probably pushed to get the best/most expensive FAs on the roster with no regard to what the long term consequences would be since he wouldn't be here to face the music when all hell breaks out, and would probably be on another team with a higher salary rewarded to him in part to the record his overpaid FAs have helped him achieve during his final year as head coach of the Titans..
