Jeff Fisher Just Wants to Be a Part of a Winner

fisherJeff Fisher is the longest currently tenured NFL head coach, guiding the Oilers/Titans since 1994 so his loyalty to the franchise really shouldn’t be questioned. However, he did make the bizarre choice while attending a charity event, Rally for Rocketown at Lipscomb University, Fisher arrived on stage to introduce his friend and former Colts head coach Tony Dungy and wore a Peyton Manning Colts uniform.

While apparently people in Tennessee are calling for Fisher’s head now, I think first everyone needs to recognize that it was a charity event and a joke, even if Fisher told the crowd, “I just wanted to feel like a winner.” The man has ably served the Titans organization and isn’t likely to purposefully embarrass the franchise. That said, I don’t think we’d ever see Bill Belichick, or Tom Coughlin or Bill Cowher ever do anything like this. I’m not sure what kind of message this sends along to the Titans players, although, considering how miserably they’ve played, I’m sure they can appreciate the sentiment of wanting to be a part of something successful. Especially considering this past week’s demolishing at the hands of the Patriots.

Coach Fisher Chutes in to Practice

fisherskydiveThe Tennessee Titans have been flying through this season en route to their current undefeated record so, to spice things up a little, head coach Jeff Fisher decided to make a big entrance to Thursday’s practice. As the players filtered out to the practice field, they noticed 4 parachutists coming down towards them. At first the players were confused, then, as they came in to land, the players realized that coach Fisher was coming down too. Joining up with some members of the 101st Airborne Cavalry, Fisher tandem jumped out of a helicopter about 12,000 feet up onto the practice field.

“We didn’t know what was going on. We saw the parachuters coming down and then we see Coach Fish,” linebacker Stephen Tulloch said. “It is cool to have a coach like that. … Everybody was excited. To see him do that, it made practice that much more fun. We didn’t know it was him, and then we saw his blue jacket and knew it was him.”

While Fisher didn’t comment on the stunt after practice with reporters, the players said that the message the coach was giving them was about overcoming obstacles. One of the parachutists was Sgt. Max Ramsey who had lost a leg in Iraq, which left quite the impression on the players. “He has been able to overcome that adversity and still do what he does,’’ Tulloch said. β€œIt shows us no matter what, we can accomplish what we want. That’s what I took from it. … It is unbelievable.”
