Adams still undecided on Fisher's future

The Tennessee Titans and Jeff Fisher are in what's most likely the oddest "hot seat" situation, because of Fisher's lengthy tenure with the team.

So it makes sense that it's unfolding oddly -- Titans' owner Bud Adams released a statement (from Houston) shortly before Jeff Fisher took the podium (in Tennessee) and there appears to be some discord between the sides.

“I met for several hours today with Steve Underwood and Mike Reinfeldt about our organization and where we go from here," Adams said in a statement released by the team. "I will continue to review all aspects of what we do as a football team, including the coaching staff and other decisions that are in front of us.

"There are several things that need to be considered in this evaluation process, including Jeff’s (Fisher) history with our team, the labor situation and other challenges. I have been at this for a long time, and these decisions take time and thoughtful consideration. I will make the decisions that I feel are in the best interest of the team. I do understand the time element involved and would expect to make these decisions in the near future.

"In the meantime, I will continue to be in contact with Jeff and the senior staff for any additional information that I may need."

Fisher echoed the "no one really knows for sure what's going to happen" sentiment when speaking with the media in Nashville.

"I'm in a situation for the first time in my career where there's curiosity regarding my tenure here and I know everyone has a lot of questions here, but it is a process and we're going to continue to discuss it," Fisher said. "We have, as you can appreciate, some difficult decisions to make, so we'll continue with that. In the event I can't answer your questions, it's because we're still in the process."

The crux of the issue seems to be, simply, Vince Young.

Obviously things run a little deeper than that, and Fisher acknowledged that he could make a trip to Houston at some point in the week, but there's a general belief that Fisher doesn't want to coach Young and/or start him at quarterback, while Adams is adamant that Young is the Titans' quarterback of the future.

However, things have changed pretty dramatically since the initial issues between Fisher and Young earlier this year. Two jobs that seemed like ideal landing spots for Fisher, if he chose to walk or was fired, are either filled (Houston) or likely to be filled (Dallas).

While San Francisco, Cleveland and Carolina could also present an opportunity for Fisher if he becomes unemployed, it seems like he's lost a little bit of leverage in negotiations with his owner going forward.

Time to dump Fisher.  One Superbowl appearance in over ten years hardly sounds like a priceless coach.

I'm not a Titans fan, so I really don't have a dog in this hunt. My question would be this, what has Jeff Fisher really accomplished in his lengthy tenure as the coach of the Titans? Yes, they've been mostly a competitive team, but overall, really, rather average. And, if you discount last year, when the owner made him start Young over Collins, a less than average coach.
I don't pretend that Vince Young is any type of savior, and I would not invest in him to be my long term solution at QB, but jsut as with the Redskins, out of the QB's on the team, who gives you the ebst chance to win? Collins, Young or Ryal? I think the answer is pretty clear that it's Young.
If I'm Adams, I let Fisher go, then I staart shopping Young to a team where he might just fit nicely, Vikings anybody?, and look to use Collins one last year both as a QB and a mentor for the young QB I draft or sign.
So, my solution to the question, "Young or Fisher?" is neither.

If Fisher is let go the Colts should pick him up.
HUH??? No thanks. Any Colts fan who is interested in an underacheiving coach needs to root for a different team. The Colts have a coach.
