Titans Owner Bud Adams Tells Wyatt Jeff Fisher and Vince Young Have to Get Along

Well if you were wondering where Tennessee Titans owner Bud Adams came down on the whole Vince Young thing, this article from Jim Wyatt of the Tennessean sums it up. It is clear from that story that Bud is still a VY guy. Here are a couple of the quotes from the article:

"They are going to have to work together. I haven’t given up on Vince, and I am sure Fisher hasn’t either," Adams said by phone from his office in Houston. "Vince was upset and said some things he regretted after doing it, but you have to get to the bottom of it, straighten it out and move on."

Wyatt asked Bud if Vince will be back with the Titans next year. Here is his response:

"Oh, God yeah. He is under contract. I wouldn’t want to let him go… we are going to pay him a lot of money.’’

Wyatt then asked about Jeff Fisher's future with the team:

"He is under contract, too. They can’t change that. They are under contract. That is why you have contract."

Click on the link above and read the whole article there is a lot more to it.

Here is what I take away from this...Bud Adams is always, always, always going to be a Vince Young guy, and it sounds to me like if he is forced to chose between Fisher and Young he will chose Vince Young.

This is terrible news if you are a Titans fan. I know some of you are going to kill me for saying this, but VY is the only one who can control his actions. Say what you want about Fisher and how he has handled the situation, and he has made some mistakes in all of this, but it is still on Vince to be a professional. He hasn't given us any indication yet that he can do that.

Great job by Jim Wyatt on getting the interview and conducting it.
