Tennessee Titans Morning Links: Flip Out Edition

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Coach Fisher sounds like a man who knows what he wants to hear from the league when it starts handing out fines and suspensions related to the mob scene on the Texans bench:

"The coaches tape does not show a punch thrown. I’ve looked at the TV tape and I could not see a punch thrown. Andre Johnson jerked Cortland down by the facemask on their boundary and that started the fracas in the bench area," Fisher said. "I didn’t see the punch thrown, but again, they’re not going to eject a player without being fairly sure it was thrown."

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Fisher wants the competition committee, which he co-chairs, to take a good long look at the fair catch rules that led to Sunday's idiotic situation.  Even if it's the way the rule is written, it just doesn't follow the baseline logic that most NFL rules do and could be better applied.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Mike Florio and I finally agree on something: There's no way you can allow Jacoby Jones' touchdown catch in the wake of the ruling and explanation given to Raiders fans on Louis Murphy's non-touchdown in the Raiders/Chargers game.

Follow us through the jump to see which Titans vet is already out for next week...

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Craig Hentrich is going to miss Sunday's game, and rookie A.J. Trapasso is in town for a work-out along with other available punters.  Sucks for these guys that their first good crack at our line-up will happen in the windy Meadowlands.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Sure, the Jets defense hasn't allowed a touchdown yet.  But, they also haven't faced a team that can run the ball whenever it wants yet either.  We'll see how they hold up against a balanced attack this Sunday.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 All of this whining and finger-pointing will not stand, man.  This un-checked complaining will not stand!

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Turmoil in Tennessee?  I'd say it's not there yet, but it damned sure could be very soon.

Tennessee_titans_30x21 Why don't I buy into the 13% playoff chance talk?  Not many 0-2 teams return 20 of 22 starters from a roster that went 13-3 the year before.
