  • Jeff Fisher and the whole titans squad

    These people showed absolutely no class today, I was really up set with the Titans organization. I can understand having first team offense in for the first 30 points, you want to build up a big lead so the other team cant come back. But going for 17 more points after that is completely unacceptable. You would think a coach who suffered through his own 59-0 lopsided loss would show a little more compassions for a team that obviously was no match for his. I'm thoroughly sick with this man. I completely understand the perspective of, if you want us to stop scoring, stop us. But at some point you put in backups and make us stop them.

    And it isnt just the coach, the last two null interceptions were run back as far as they could be, one for a touchdown. I dont care who you are if you are up by 30-40 points you take a knee when you get an interception.

    I generally hate very few teams in the NFL, Seahawks and Patriots were the only one before today. You can chalk another team up on my *%@& list.

    IMO, I have no problem with running the score up. This is pro football, and everybody on both sides are paid to do their job. I have a different perspective in college, but these guys are making more than most people on this board combined. Maybe we should just stop them...

      And Spag's list as well. I saw his reaction to Fisher at the end of the game, it wasn't pretty.

        When you are up by 30 points, there is no reason to run up a score unless you want to embarrass the other team. They are paid to stop them, but you would think a man who has been a head coach for 11 years and a major figure in the NFL would show a little class.

          I thank them. They illustrated the need for Suh and that Null isn't the answer.

            Ya spags looked disgusted. He wasn't even looking when Jeff shook his hand, and walked away immediately.

              So what? Maybe this will spark a fire under our team, no?

              Either way, lose by 30 or 200, a loss is a loss.

                I think most people looking at it objectively know that Fisher is one of the more classy, low-key coaches in the league, he's not Belichick when it comes to running up the score that's for sure. There were a lot of rookies getting snaps in the game. I think Fisher was planning to sit on the lead. But when you run a fake punt when we literally have no chance of winning, I knew at that point he wasn't going to call off the dogs. Spag kindof asked for it.

                  How? By not lying down and playing dead?

                    Ok, so if we are not going to lie down and play dead why would you expect the other side to do so.

                      The Titans piled on, especially when they went for the TD on 4th down with the score 33-7 late in the 4th quarter. Maybe Fisher was upset about Ryan pushing Johnson out of bounds earlier, but to me it was still a classless move.

                      After that 4th down TD, they showed Spags glaring at the Tennessee sideline, saying what Trent Green thought was "are you kidding me", but it didn't look like "kidding" to me. The post-game handshake did indeed look very icy.

                        I agree, they are pros, have a little pride and go there and stop them.

                            I didnt say they should just kneel every play after they are up 40 points. But not having the first team offense in after you are already up by 40 points. Consistently going for the td by throwing long pass plays. Going for it numerous times on 4th down while you are up by 40 points. How is that playing the game and not being a dbag?

                              i was upset with the 26-0 lead and going for it on 4th and 3 from the rams 20. Just take your 29-0 lead. And with the last pic with :20 left, to pic it 8 yards deep in the end zone and try to run it all they way back up 40 points with 10 seconds left at that point i thought was classless, besides that not much i can complain about, mainly just those 2 instances.

                                The case against Jeff Fisher
                                by TNT
                                Hi peeps, Titans fan here.

                                I thought I’d come to a Rams board and read the perception going for Fisher. I must say, and I mean no disrespect, but I see the same old myths being posted here that the bulk of non Titans fans seem to believe when it comes to Fisher, so I thought I’d offer a different perspective.

                                Myth #1 – Fisher is hard nosed, and makes a disciplined team

                                Since leaving the Titans, various media outlets that cover the Titans have noted how the culture has changed for the better under Mike Munchak. In general, Fisher actually ran a very loose ship. At some point he may have been “hard nosed”, but not really any time recently.

                                One of the first impressions a Titans beat writer had of training camp under Munchak instead of Fisher described the camp under Fisher used to run as having a “country club atmosphere”.

                                As far as discipline goes, in 2010 the Titans ranked 30th in penalties. In 09, 20th. In 08, 31st. In 07, 23rd. How he gets the tag of being a disciplined coach is a head scratcher.

                                Myth #2 – Under Fisher, the Titans always had a tough D

                                The Titans D under Fisher hardly changed scheme or approach at all throughout his entire tenure. And this scheme was always extremely vanilla. All he really did was rely on his front 4 to get pressure. When the Titans had an elite player there, like Kearse and Haynesworth, the defense did well. When these guys got hurt, all of a sudden the defense struggled big time – and I mean down to down, not season to season. Haynesworth would come out at times in 2007 and 2008 and all of a sudden the Titans D would look horrible. This was because the Titans D had no scheme or coach level answers for a drop in player talent. Injuries effect even the best teams, but a good sign that coaching and scheming is lacking is when injuries seem to make much bigger impacts than some, and on the Titans, it made massive impacts.

                                In his last 10 seasons, the Titans defense ranked in the top 10 three times. I’m not sure how that compares to other defensive experts at HC, but I’m guessing not overly well.

                                Fisher always struggled bringing in coordinator talent. Greg Williams was his best, but the list is bleak after that. Schwartz was always pegged as better HC material than DC by Titans fans and his D again relied heavily on the raw talent in the front 4. It was poor until Haynesworth exploded in his contract years (07 and 08). Fisher’s latest DC was Chuck Cecil, who the Titans players heavily criticized afterwards and was just plain awful at DC. Oh, and Fisher tried to extend him and in fact did behind upper management’s back shortly before he left the Titans, which fans believe was a factor in Fisher’s leaving. Nice little tidbit I bet not many here knew. If you guys get Fisher, don't be surprised if Chuck Cecil is part of the package in some capacity.

                                Under Fisher,...

                                Fisher’s attempt at humor could backfire

                                By Charles Robinson, Yahoo! Sports
                                4 hours, 32 minutes ago

                                It’s rare that an accomplished NFL head coach does something so off the wall that you have to question whether he’s actually daring his owner to fire him. And it’s almost unthinkable that coach would be the Tennessee Titans’ Jeff Fisher.

                                Then came Tuesday, when Fisher donned a Peyton Manning jersey before a crowded audience and illustrated that his timing, like his record this season, is far from perfect.

                                The moment happened during a charity event for Rocketown, a Nashville area non-profit. While doing his setup for keynote speaker and former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy, Fisher stripped off his jacket and tie, then pulled away his dress shirt to reveal Manning’s No. 18 Colts jersey. He then punctuated the attire by taking a little poke at himself and the Titans’ 0-6 record, quipping: “I just wanted to feel like a winner.” In video taken at the event, the crowd laughs before a few spectators give an “Ohhhh” when Fisher drops his “feel like a winner” line.

                                As in, “Ohhhh, I can’t believe he just said that.”

                                Not since Mike Ditka’s dreadlocked wig has a coach’s attempt at humor had such lasting potential to backfire. Ditka, with the New Orleans Saints at the time, mugged in his dreads after trading his entire selection of picks for the right to select Ricky Williams No. 5 overall in the 1999 NFL draft. And 10 years later, that image is still synonymous with the beginning of Ditka’s end in New Orleans. Only time will tell if Fisher rocking the jersey of a division rival has the same wincing effect in 10 years that it will surely elicit in Titans fans this week.

                                I don’t want to be the heavy here. I get the joke. I understand that it was a little gallows humor by a respected 15-year head coach who was just trying to lighten an otherwise crushing season. But of all the weeks and all the gags, why Fisher decided to pull it now is beyond me. His team is 0-6 and spiraling. It just endured an embarrassing 59-0 blitzkrieg at the hands of the New England Patriots. The quarterback position is a smoldering heap. Certainly the last thing any Tennessee fan (or season ticketholder) wants to see right now is Fisher wearing the jersey of a hated rival – let alone a quarterback playing out of his mind for a team that is off to the kind of start we anticipated from the Titans.

                                It will be defended in some quarters as no big deal, that it was just a throwaway joke in an abysmal year. And I don’t honestly believe that Fisher is trying to draw the ire of the fan base or owner Bud Adams. But think of the other long-tenured coaches in the NFL. Can you imagine Philadelphia Eagles coach Andy Reid in an Eli Manning jersey? Knowing Eagles fans, he might not make it to work the next day.

                                And honestly, it’s getting harder...

                                Fisher, Titals Part Ways After More Than 16 Seasons
                                by r8rh8rmike
                                Fisher, Titans part ways after more than 16 seasons

                       Wire Reports
                                Jan. 27, 2011

                                In a surprising move, the Tennessee Titans have parted ways with Jeff Fisher, who just completed his 16th full season as the NFL's longest-tenured coach.

                                The team said in a release Thursday night that "Fisher will no longer be the head coach of the team." The Titans announced the move within an hour of a report by that they were negotiating Fisher's departure.

                                Though Fisher, 52, had been derided locally as "Coach .500" or "Coacho Ocho," he seemingly had just survived a battle with quarterback Vince Young. Adams decided to either release Young or trade him on Jan. 5. The owner announced two days later that he would be keeping Fisher.

                                Fisher and Young never really jelled in five seasons together after the Titans drafted the former Texas standout with the third overall pick in 2006 under orders from Adams. The relationship frayed even as Fisher publicly defended Young until Nov. 21 when the situation exploded.

                                Young tossed his shoulder pads and other equipment into the stands and later had a lockeroom confrontation with Fisher after an overtime loss in which the quarterback suffered a season-ending injury.

                                Running back Chris Johnson said Wednesday while practicing in Hawaii for the Pro Bowl he didn't think Fisher or Young could work together after "it hit the fan."

                                Johnson, like most everyone else, was cuaght off guard by Thursday's news. "It was a situation where I thought it was going to be one or the other -- Vince Young or coach Fisher -- with at the end of the day both being out the door," Johnson told NFL Network. "So it's a crazy situation, something I really didn't expect to happen."

                                In the end, neither Fisher nor Young survived with the Titans.

                                Even though Adams announced he was sticking with Fisher for the final year of his contract the move meant Fisher would be coaching for his future in 2011. Fisher has repeatedly said he wanted to finish his career with the franchise, but the coach known for never losing his cool in public while hiding behind his sunglasses may have decided Adams' decision wasn't good enough.

                                A team spokesman did not immediately respond to messages from The Associated Press. Fisher did not answer a message left on his cell, and his agent also did not respond to messages from the AP.

                                More details could come out Friday when the team is expected to hold a news conference to discuss the first coaching change since the franchise relocated to Tennessee from Houston in 1997. One of the leading candidates to replace Fisher is Mike Munchak, the Titans offensive line coach. The Hall of Famer is a favorite of Adams.

                                Why I want Fisher as our HC
                                by Rambos
                                Why Fisher, let me start by saying I still want Mike here, but it looks like it’s a done deal. So why Fisher, defensive coach, younger coach with 11 year as a head coach don’t ,want a college coach that does not have a clue about the NFL.

                                Some numbers on Fisher from his BIO

                                98 victories and has amassed more regular season wins than any AFC head coach over the last six seasons with 61. He ranks third overall in the NFL behind Tony Dungy (64 wins, 30 in the NFC) and Andy Reid (63 wins). Fisher led the Titans to four playoff appearances (1999, 2000, 2002, 2003), two Division titles (2000 & 2002), two AFC Championship Games (1999, 2002) and one Super Bowl berth (XXXIV). (61 regular season wins and 5 postseason wins). Last year, he became the fourth youngest coach (46) to win 90 regular season games since 1960. Only John Madden (41), Don Shula (41), and Bill Cowher (44) were faster to 90 wins.

                                Former player…

                                A former defensive back in college at the University of Southern California, Fisher played for Robinson in a star-studded defensive backfield that included future NFL stars Ronnie Lott, Dennis Smith and Joey Browner. Former Titans offensive lineman Bruce Matthews also was one of Fisher’s USC teammates. Fisher’s career statistics included five interceptions and 108 tackles. The versatile Fisher also served as the Trojans’ backup kicker and earned PAC-10 All-Academic honors in 1980

                                Hallmarks of a Fisher-led team include stout rushing defense, the ability to possess the ball with a strong running game and poise in the midst of adversity. In nine of the last 10 seasons, the Titans defense has ranked in the top 10 against the run and they are the only team in the NFL that can boast such a streak. In 2003, the Titans finished first in the NFL in rushing defense for only the second time in franchise history (1993).

                                In 1991, Fisher headed west to be reunited with his college coach John Robinson, serving as the Los Angeles Rams’ defensive coordinator. “Come home Fisher”.

                                He is a University of Southern California, guy! Shaw lives here…maybe he can reach this idiot.

                                He young with a ton of experience, I think you have to be young to relate to theses players today. I think he can get the Max out of SJ and build a D that can PLAY.

                                Spin is on as Rams, Dolphins eye Jeff Fisher
                                by Rambos
                                Bernie Miklasz / St. Louis Post-Dispatch

                                ST, LOUIS — It’s been fun to sit back the last couple of days and watch the pursuit of coaching candidate Jeff Fisher. Virtually every NFL pundit between New York and California has installed the Rams as favorites to land Fisher.

                                Team Fisher surely is aware of this.

                                Wednesday we were treated to some new twists, seemingly designed to create leverage for Fisher. A story on Yahoo Sports, written by Fisher confidante Mike Silver, tried to reset the odds. It was reported that the Miami Dolphins [team stats] have the "upper hand" in the competition for Fisher.

                                The story even included a line about how Fisher wasn’t necessarily sold on the Rams’ Sam Bradford as a franchise quarterback. This dollop of speculation undoubtedly elevated the Bradford haters into a full state of arousal.

                                Yahoo Sports helpfully disclosed that Fisher left Miami with a positive impression after his formal interview with Dolphins executives.

                                Another story, in the Miami Herald, stressed that Dolphins owner Steve Ross was so determined to secure Fisher, he’d top any financial offer made to the coach.

                                A year ago the same headlines were written to describe the Dolphins’ aggressive pitch to Stanford head coach Jim Harbaugh. But he picked the San Francisco ***** over the Dolphins.

                                An obvious message is being delivered to Rams owner Stan Kroenke: take nothing for granted. If you want Fisher, be prepared to go all in.

                                Fisher would be a good choice for the Rams. Kroenke prefers a confident and experienced coach, much like he has in two of his personal favorites: George Karl and Arsene Wenger. Karl is the coach of Kroenke’s NBA Denver Nuggets. Wenger is the acclaimed manager of Kroenke’s Arsenal soccer club in the English Premier League.

                                Fisher is a proven leader. Some are busy nitpicking his overall record (142-120) with the Tennessee Titans [team stats]. I find that hilarious given that the Rams have had four winning seasons since 1990, and are 15-65 since 2007. And Fisher isn’t worthy of the Rams’ job? Please.
