Yesterday the news broke that Bud Adams was meeting with the Titans brass in Houston to discuss the fate of Jeff Fisher, and Terry McCormick is reporting that Fisher will be included in a meeting that is likely to happen with Adams and company no later than Wednesday. It's very unclear at this point if this meeting with Fisher will follow a meeting without him, or if McCormick and Glazer are getting conflicting information about the same meeting.
Peter King reiterates his report that if Titans brain-trust decides it's time to can Fisher today (or anytime soon), Jeff could land in San Francisco with a job before sundown:
Tennessee: As Jay Glazer reported, there's a big meeting today in Houston, where owner Bud Adams will try to figure out if Jeff Fisher and Vince Young can co-exist. Common sense says they can't. But Fisher's been there 16 years. He's been to the edge of a cliff with Adams a couple of times before and worked it out. I think there's a chance that'll happen this time too -- and if it doesn't, he'll have a soft landing spot in San Francisco.
ESPN delivers the ground-breaking analysis that Jeff Fisher doesn't want to be fired. Shocking stuff right there.
Marc Mariani broke Derrick Mason's combined kick and punt return yardage franchise record yesterday, and he also finished the season with the 18th best season yardage total of any kick/punt returner in NFL history. If you'd have told me that before the preseason I would have said we'd win at least 10 games.
David Thronton ended the season inactive yesterday after battling to make it back from numerous hip injuries.
Long-time NFL scribe Len Pasquarelli weighs in on the possible firing of Fisher, and he's trying to peddle the idea that the meeting is just a standard end-of-year meeting. That may be the case, but the future employment of Jeff Fisher is the only issue any of those guys need to focus on right now.
NFP previews which coaches could be unemployed within the week, and 3 names from the AFC South are still on the list. I'd be shocked if the Texans can Kubiak now that they've hired Wade Phillips, but there's definitely a culture issue around that franchise that neither of those guys seem dynamic enough to turnaround.
