Perhaps somewhat lost amongst all the Super Bowl build up and hoopla was the departure of Jeff Fisher from the Tennessee Titans. We were long led to believe that either quarterback Vince Young or Fisher had to leave Music City, and when it was announced that the Titans were moving on from the Young era, it was widely assumed that Fisher had won the tug of war inside Titans camp. Young and Fisher had never seemed to be on the same page, but now they are, because that page is headed out of town. The change at the top has left the Titans organization scrambling to find a suitable replacement for Fisher.
The news of Fisher’s departure was definitely surprising considering the timing. Obviously, it got the staff here at The Sports Debates wondering if the move was a mistake. Should Tennessee have fired Jeff Fisher?
Sports Geek feels that the Titans made the correct move by moving on from the Jeff Fisher era while Optimist Prime feels like the Titans made a mistake by parting ways with such a long tenured and well respected coach.
In the words of last night’s Super Bowl halftime entertainment performers Black Eyed Peas, ”Let’s get it started in here.”
