As the football-following world waits to see whether owner Bud Adams will pick coach Jeff Fisher or quarterback Vince Young, we’ve gotten our hands on an item that potentially foreshadows the eventual decision.
The Tennessee Titans’ 2010 Christmas card.
The card has a picture with three men: running back Chris Johnson, Adams, and Young.
Jeff Fisher is nowhere to be seen.
Sure, it’s possible that the men posed for the photo before Fisher banished Young from the team and made clear the coach’s position that Young had permanently forfeited his job. Even so, the cards were printed up and delivered with full knowledge of the circumstances, and the smiles on Adams’ and Young’s faces tell us that, next year, Young will still be working for Adams.
And Fisher won’t.
