Need to get a new owner and a quarterback who isn't a "Diva".. Just tired of seeing Bud Adams climb on his jet every Sunday and take hard earned Tennessee money back to Houston.....

Well Adams would probably counter that he is spending money in Tennessee and Tennessee is making money off the Titans being here, but the real point is its unlikely Adams is going to sell the team anytime soon. I will agree about the quarterback situation, but the Titans also appear to have problems in many other areas of the game.

No, the Titans don't need a new coach, they need a team of players that aren't dropping balls on purpose just because their 'sissy' quarterback friend Vince Young got set down by Fisher for his sorry, arrogant attitude.
Wouldn't blame Fisher if he left the Titans. Who would want to put up with Bud Adams anyway.

If you want a coach who will take you 8-8, 9-7 or 10-6 every year and make the play-offs once every three or four years then Jeff Fisher is your man.
If you want a coach to take you to the play-offs consistently and maybe even a Super Bowl every few years, then the Titans need a new coach, along with a QB who doesn't cry everytime someone boo's him on the field.
There is a reason teams with owners like Bud Adams, Jerry Jones, Dan Snyder and Al Davis always finish where they do. It is because they think they know football or they think they can buy the Super Bowl.
Fisher's record says it all. One Super Bowl appearance in 16 years. How many 8-8, 7-9 or 5-11 seasons are in there in that 16 years also?

I am a Titans fan and will remain so, no matter who the owner,coach,qb,....is.
The Titans have been a tremendous asset to Tennessee and especially middle Tennessee. Bud might pack up and leave in the middle of the night if but I doubt he will ever sell.
My quandary is, as Kane said, is Fisher leaving? I feel like Bud pressured Fisher to draft VY and then pressured him to endure the first tantrum. If Bud forces Fisher to stay with VY again I think Jeff would leave and who could blame him. We will never know what is happening behind those doors. VY is a good qb and has the potential to be one of the best but no one has as much control over that as he does. Fisher is a good man who is good at what he does and he will coach as long as he wants to.
We need not fret to much because sometime between the end of next weeks game and the draft we will know a lot more than we do now.
My support, during the thick and the thin, will be for Titans and hopefully for many many years to come.

just to add the Oilers (titans) have never really had a quarterback like an Aikman, Montana, Brady, Manning...they have never really had a great QB...yes everyone goes back to #9 (McNair) but he was a project from the day he showed up just like VY still is.... go get a real leader for a QB and you will see 8-8 go to 10 or 11 wins a season and playoff opportunities....

Jay Cutler, need I say more? Jay is on fire and carrying the Bears to the playoffs and maybe even further. But the Titans didn't want him, drafted VY instead. Bud didn't want to draft a QB who could actually pass the ball! Duh Huh!

Hard to generate much symphathy for men who do nothing but run up and down a field and get paid for doing it, lot like those who go around and around an oval in cars but perhaps there are better days ahead for the Titans--if Elton can become a Papa then the Titans can pick up a few whiz bangs who have not had too many concussions, including a new coach and a quarterback, and at least get into the playoffs.
