Tennessee Titans Morning Links: The Rebirth Of Joy Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 How good was Chris Johnson?  Nobody has racked-up more rushing yards in a game over the past two NFL seasons.  Neither Earl Campbell nor Eddie George ever got that many yards as an Oiler/Titan.  With performances like this and what we were witness to in the Texans game earlier in the year, we're damned lucky to be watching a running back with so much talent and ability because they don't come around very often.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Vince Young made a triumphant return to the starting spot yesterday, and his performance injected the rest of this season with a lot of hope where there had been nothing but darkness.  The playoffs are still a pipe-dream too far off to talk about seriously, but now so is the first overall pick in the draft...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Nationally there was a lot of scuttle-butt surrounding the future of Fisher with the Titans.  Peter King, Jay Glazer, Chris Mortensen, Adam Scheffter and others all weighed in on the general theme that Adams may be ready to make a move... of course, all of those reports came before yesterday's divisional beat-down.  After the game Adams assured the mediathat Fisher had too many years left on his contract to consider releasing.  Of course, if you read Florio's baseless drivel in that first link there's always the option of offering-up Fisher like Al Davis did with Gruden... a move that has really worked-out well for the Raiders...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Was I the only one who missed very annoying announcer Gus Johnson's classless comments during one of CJ's big plays?  Not that I'm killing the guy over it, but I just don't get why you'd say something like this:

1. Gus Johnson saying Chris Johnson ran “like he was being chased by the cops” after his 52-yard TD scamper against the Jags in the 3rd quarter.

Follow us through the jump for more on Fisher and the re-born Titans....

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Here's what a difference a win makes: Peter King hinted that Fisher might be dead man walking in Nashville on Saturday, and this morning he doesn't even mention it in his MMQB column.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Judy Battista of the New York Times says Vince Young's performance was an indictment of Fisher because he waited too long to sit Kerry Collins.  That's a bit of a lazy leap, IMO, and I'm saying that as someone who wanted to see VY start the previous two games.  Waiting until the bye week was probably a very good thing for Vince since he got more time to work with the coaches and practice with that mind-set.  The only way I'd agree is if Fisher really did spend the last two weeks lobbying for Bud Adams not to force this change.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 MJD picked VY as one of his five most valuable players yesterday over at Shutdown Corner.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 It was so nice to see Vinny and Cortland out there at full-speed, and I think any Titans fan with discriminating taste realizes that Rod Hood >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> NIck Harper.
