    He clearly only reads the threads he "creates."

    Looks like we were right in that Fisher failed to get Vince and the offense where they needed to be that week. But it doesn't help that the center piece is missing. I'll lay-off Fisher now that I see its just as much Vince's fault for not getting the preparation needed when facing a top notch defense. But this is a week late.

    The timing of this revelation reeks of excuses. If the coach had trouble w/ a player's approach toward preperation, it should have been handled before the game. Benching Young for the FIRST quarter would have been more appropriate punishment. And IMO, had we WON w/ VY this story never would have surfaced.

    Besides that, "insider" information doesn't always tell the whole picture...largely because the informant is nameless and therefore not going to be held responsible.

    Benching Young for the first quarter would have been even more of a public relations nightmare. Then you have to explain why your changed qb is reverting.. Fisher handled it right as far as I'm concerned. This wasn't a punishment but rather a coach just trying to win a football game. I don't care if Vince had good excuses to be late, the fact is that he wasn't focused on a very confusing defense. If I were on that coaching staff and had to listen to my coach take all the bashing he did, knowing full well that Young was not prepared because of his own actions, I would have personally "leaked" it to the media. They were down by 13 points and Young looked completely lost, it was worth a shot to go to the guy that was in the meetings and has a ton of experience. At the end of the day, this is going to turn out to be a good thing for Vince because if he plays well against the Steelers, with a lack of preparation, he would have thought that was all he needed to do to be sucessful... this is a lesson learned.

    He went with McNair's sons to school or something like that and was excused...

    Read the article. The issue isn't the excused absence.
