Bud Adams might have taken his time picking between Vince Young and Jeff Fisher, but Vince Young's disappointing Titans career over to bring Fisher back, announcing Friday that Fisher would return for 2011.

"Jeff has meant a great deal to this franchise and we have reached some incredible heights under his leadership," Adams said in a statement released by the team. "Obviously I have very high expectations for our football team and want to deliver a championship to our fans. Jeff understands this and shares my expectations. The results of his leadership have been some very good football teams and I believe he will get us back to an elite level."

This isn't that big a surprise -- Fisher has just one year left on his contract and it makes sense for both sides to keep the continuity in Tennessee rolling.

If Fisher left, he wouldn't have as many job opportunities open as he might have a few weeks ago (Houston, Dallas are no longer open coaching gigs) and if Adams fired Fisher, he'd run the risk of bringing in a new coach who might not be able to begin working with the team until after labor negotiations were resolved.

He'd also be paying a pair of coaches even though there's no guarantee of football in 2011 quite yet.

Jeff Fisher officially returning to Titans

Everyone needs to stop looking at the contract issues here.  Bottom line, it means nothing.  It doesn't matter if he has 1 year left, or 5.  As teams have shown before, contracts mean nothing in the NFL.  The Buffalo Bills, whom the person speaks about below, signed Dick Jauron to an extension....and then fired him a few weeks later.  Contracts in the NFL aren't guaranteed for more than what the actual guarantee in the contract is.  Therefore Fisher could be on a short leash with a 1 or 5 year deal still on the table.  I think this is a good move.  I think some people might be blinded by his overall intelligence for the game and honestly you can't put the blame on a guy that hasn't been given the tools to succeed.  I mean Vince Young and Kerry Collins?  Really, when you talk about playoff teams
NE Brady, NO Brees, PHI Vick, BALT Flacco, ATL Ryan, GB Rodgers, INDY Manning, PIT Roethlisberger, KC Cassel, NYJ Sanchez, CHI Cutler and SEA Hasselbeck
of the 12 teams in the playoffs, I put 10 of the 12 QB's ahead of any of what Fisher was given, I also would probably put Sanchez above as well, but my thoughts on him are bad enough that I'd consider rather having Young.  That being said, teams that win, have successful QB's, a position that is unwavering with no conflict or battle of who is #1.  It's been a good 4 to 5 years since the Titans have had a guy that looked like he was firmly the #1, and until that changes, I don't care if Johnson is in the backfield, defenses will stack the line, and succeed when the game is on the line.

Bud Adams needs to get out there and start flipping off people.  Sources say that the last time the Titans had a winning season was when Bud Adams was giving a dose of 2 one finger salutes to the Buffalo Bills.
