Titans’ evaluation of Jeff Fisher is ongoing

vinceyoung

From all appearances, Titans owner Bud Adams has decided to jettison Vince Young because he plans to keep Jeff Fisher and knows the two can no longer work together.

But Adams says he hasn’t decided for sure whether he’ll keep Fisher and the rest of the coaching staff or not.

“I also informed Jeff today that I was continuing the evaluation of the coaching staff and I am hoping to make a decision soon,” Adams said.

It says a lot about Young that Adams — who has long been Young’s biggest cheerleader — has decided to get rid of Young even before deciding whether Fisher will return. This isn’t Adams saying Young has to go because Fisher is staying. This is just Adams saying Young has to go.

    Those player exit interviews must have opened Bud’s eyes to the problems VY brings, number one of which is an immature short fuse. Kudos to Adams for admitting he was wrong.

    Fischer won.

    Bud Adams just doesn’t want it to look like a “him or me” type ultimatum. Adams will “study on it” for a couple of days, then announce that Fisher is staying in a separate decision.

    If he is evaluating the coaching staff on it’s own merits that is something that should happen every year. But to dump Jeff Fisher means blowing up the organization. New coaching philosophy, new staff, dumping veterans and on and on. Is making change for change’s sake of value? I’m curious if Bud Adams is doing this to save face.

    I hope not – Fisher needs to go. The CBA might save him though. Doubt Adams wants to risk paying two coaches.

    Goldsteel – Change for change’s sake would be if the Titans had just missed the playoffs or lost a playoff game. This team is a bad football team in many areas. It has been now two years in a row and has missed the playoffs 5 of the last 7. Not many markets that would fly. Fisher is insulated by his small market. He’s lucky Bud lives in Houston and doesn’t live and breath the organization like he did when it was the Oilers.

    He should keep Fisher due to his excellent track record? rofl. Exactly what does he have to gain by keeping Fisher. A coach who keeps getting praises while leading his team to losing records year after year. If mediocrity is your goal, Fisher is your man along with his handpicked QB, Collins. Collins is guaranteed to get you at least 1 win every 12 games and what more could a brilliant coach ask for?

    I’m betting that Fisher gets another year, but no extension in the short term. He’ll be in basically the same “playoffs or bust” situation that Del Rio is in.

    all titans fans that complain about fisher and his record should probably look at what he has done it with…which is very little.
