    When asked about Haynesworth last week, Fisher wouldn't even use Haynesworth's name. Instead, he referred to "the defensive tackle" twice to avoid saying Haynesworth's name.

    wow... Jeff is p.o'ed

    ouch. Haynesworth will need to be a choir boy to get out of Fishers dog house. One wrong word and he'll be gone.

    It would be a real shame if he is not back on the team. We certainly need him. Bulluck giving him a vote of confidence might help.

    Haynesworth May Not be Invited Back

    SUMMARY: Titans DT Albert Haynesworth is due to come off his five-game suspension on Monday but he may not be welcomed back by the team. "Our front office will be discussing the issue over the next couple of days," coach Jeff Fisher said Thursday. "That's all I can comment on." Haynesworth received a five-game suspension for swiping his right foot on the face of Dallas center Andre Gurode. The suspension also meant Haynesworth lost five game paychecks, and the Titans asked him for some of his bonus money back. Some of his teammates are ready for him to return. "Shoot, we've been missing him around here in the locker room, missing him on the football field, miss the leadership aspect that he brings, and I'm sure he's ready to come back," Bulluck said. "He's definitely one of us, and I can't wait until he comes back."

    I think it's clear to him that he's on a very short leash with the team. That being said, I think he's done all the right things. The public apology was sincere, he's spending game days counciling kids, he didn't put up any argument when they asked for some of his bonus back. I think he's doing the right things, and should be allowed another chance. I think he'll be motivated to come back and be the kind of leader we need to finish out the season. If not, drop him.

    Based on the comments from Bulluck and Robaire, it sounds like Fisher is going to risk losing the team again if the team trys to keep Haynesworth away.

    What Al did was inexcusable and unacceptable but he has been punished now he deserves a 2nd chance. This maybe a turning point in his life and he should be a much better person because of this. I don't think Fisher, Reese or Mr. Adams will ever have to worry about more problems from Al I bet he's learned his lesson. I have been one of the strongest Fisher supporters here but if he doesn't allow Al back after all this crap with PacMan then someting is wrong. If Al doesn't come back how in the world can you let Pac come back. Give him a 2nd chance he is a part of the Titan family.
