Heimerdinger on Britt: “Eventually you have to grow up”


Former Titans offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger now has more important things to worry about than Kenny Britt. But he’s been following the problems of his former pupil from afar and can’t help but shake his head.

“Kenny can be as good as anybody, but eventually you have to grow up,” Heimerdinger told Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean Monday.

He said that Monday morning, before news broke of new arrest warrants being out on Britt in Nashville. Former Titans coach Jeff Fisher no longer has to get calls on Britt’s struggles, but the news continues to bother him.

“Somehow, deep down, you kind of still feel responsible or still feel like you want to help. I hope he can get things sorted out,” Fisher said.

Columnists in Nashville and nationally believe new coach Mike Munchak will come down hard on Britt when the lockout ends.

“You have to be very careful to jump to conclusions until you get all the facts, and I think that is probably what [Mike] is doing right now, he’s gathering the facts,” Fisher said.
