    WOW…sounds very sudden. Let’s hope he gets through it. Gods Speed Mr. Heimerdinger.

    That is sad. My best wishes to the Heimerdinger family.
    My worst wishes to the overrated, pyscho, nutcase, low self esteemed Vince Young.
    And kudos to Jeff Fischer.
    Now tell that dumba$$ Bud Adams to go get screwed.

    Tennessee has a moron for an owner that is in love with a QB that will never be a leader, will always underachieve, and will go nutso at the drop of a hat. I guess Vince Young and Titans fans are quite a bit alike

    Oh no… poor guy. I wish him the best of luck

    Dinger, you are a fighter and a great coach. My thoughts are with you and your family.

    Who knows exactly when Coach Fisher learned of this, but it may put what happened on Sunday in a different context.

    Grown men do not act like Vince Young and, if I were dealing with the news that one of my colleagues was seriously ill, I do not believe I could have shown the restraint Coach Fisher demonstrated after Mr. Young’s childish antics.

    How’s this for a healthy dose of reality folks? All the best to Dinger and his family. Here’s hoping for a complete recovery!!

    Having lost my mom to cancer a month ago yesterday, my thoughts go out to his family. It’s a very difficult battle. Best wishes to him.

    Lost my dad to cancer last christmas. Cancer is a very scary issue. I wish the Heimerdinger family all the luck and that God and others will be there for you.

    I am sure I speak for all TRUE TITAN fans, from the bottom of our hearts, we wish Coach Heimerdinger and his family the best. Be strong and pull threw soon.

    I can’t imagine what it must be like to find out a diagnosis like that.

  20. gojags says: Nov 24, 2010 5:56 PM

    Get well soon Coach Heimerdinger. Can’t wait to see you in the opposing sideline next season. You truly are a great hero, focusing so much on your work not taking care of your health.

    My Best wishes for your speedy recovery.

    Thoughts and prayers to Coach Heimerdinger and family. What a tough thing to go through, especially around the holidays. Fight hard, Coach!

    Kinda makes some of my worries, problems etc seem very trivial.

    anybody who makes a joke out of this is going to burn in hell.
    stay strong buddy.
    happy thanksgiving to you and your Loved ones.
    “May Jesus Christ wrap his healing arms around you” is my prayer.

    Here’s hoping that all your therapy is successful. Once cancer touches someone even if they are survivors, it is with them forever. May God Bless your health.
