Derrick Mason hasn’t played for Jeff Fisher since leaving the Titans for the Ravens after the 2004 season. But Mason hasn’t forgotten what the experience of playing for Fisher was like.
At a charity softball event in Tennessee that doubled as a going-away party for Fisher, Mason was one of many players who sung Fisher’s praises.
“I’ve always respected him so much. He’s been a fixture in my life the last 15 years,” Mason said. “Guys came back for this because they love him. I don’t think too many coaches, once they leave, have guys come back and show how much they appreciate him. I know I wasn’t going to miss this.”
Although Fisher’s last couple years with the Titans weren’t successful, he remains one of the most popular, respected men in Tennessee. Mike Munchak has a tough act to follow.
