Michael Griffin got a rare public swirly from Fisher on Monday over the Dwayne Bowe touchdown, but the next day Griffin made sure to voice his support for Fisher as head coach next year. Griffin said he believes that Vince Young and Fisher can fix their relations ship in the 7 months before training camp. At this point I havev to believe that's giving both parties a bit more credit than they deserve. Is it possible that the two honestly make-up and come to an understanding? Sure. Is it far more likely that any such tête à tête would probably fail to solve any of the root issues between the two and, at best, lead to another blow-up at the first sign of trouble? Yup.
Paul Kuharsky looks at the job security and possible futures of Gary Kubiak, Jack Del Rio and Jeff Fisher.
None of the Titans starters have fallen harder or with less fanfare than Vincent Fuller. The 6th year vet looked to have the nickel back spot on lockdown again headed into the season, but the arrival of Alterraun Verner and improved play of Jason McCourty pushed him from starter to the end of the bench. Now, he can't even stay active on gameday over Pete Ittersagen.
Jump!David Boclair looks at the increasingly common occurrence (it's the 3rd time in 4 years) of the Titans and Colts meeting in Week 17 with at least one team needing a win to make the playoffs.
After publicly declaring their efforts to get younger against the Colts, the Titans may play... David Thronton?
Chris Johnson is already talking about the contract negotiations that will take place this off-season with the Titans. There are a lot of years where this would bother me, but honestly CJ is one of a very small handful of players who busted their ass on the field trying to keep this team alive. If he wants to talk about his money headed into the last game of the season, I say he's earned it.
For those of you who are more ardently anti-Jeff Fisher, and especially non-sentimental towards the coach, you'll love this piece from Mike Freeman: "Fisher's reputation doesn't match Titans' results".
Bob Kravitz is a homer and an idiot. They'd be better to vote Peyton Manning coach of the year than Jim effin' Caldwell. I mean Jim Caldwell's greatest accomplishment this season was once again being coach of team featuring Peyton Manning. That is all.
Michael Roos is planning to build a condo/shopping development in the Germantown district of Nashville where he and his wife already run a coffee shop. Lets hope he gets it off the ground, and that this isn't just another false start.
And now it's time to wash-down the stinging disappointment of this season with the possibility that there could be no football next year. Hey, our QB can't quit on the team and our coach can't run us into the ground again if we don't get to take the field! Success!
