Jeff Fisher not coaching the Tennessee Titans? It won’t seem right.
Fisher is the Titans, the only coach they’ve had. Even though Fisher never won a Super Bowl, his tenure with the Titans has to be considered a success.
In his 16 full seasons, Fisher had just six winning seasons, but his team came within a yard of possibly winning a Super Bowl and he had three 13-win seasons.
Fisher was liked by his players – OK, except Vince Young – and he always treated them as pros. He let veterans go home for camp, a rarity in this league.
The one knock on Fisher was that he failed to change with the times. He always wanted to be a run-first team.
That was fine when he went to the Super Bowl in 1999, but this is a passing league. His teams could never throw it well enough to sustain the success. They always seemed to have a good season, and then fade. That’s what that style does.
If Fisher is out, he will land somewhere next season. If he does, he will need to change the way he plays.
I think Fisher really tired of the way things were going in Tennessee. Maybe the timing was right.
All things come to and end.
It’s just going to be weird not seeing that mustache and that spunky demeanor coaching the Titans.
