Total Titans: Was playing the Titans the cure for what ailed Peyton Manning, or is he still making uncharacteristic mistakes for no apparent reason?
Detroit Lions head coach Jim Schwartz has his team going in the right direction while Jeff Fisher has the Titans going the wrong way.
Let's take a walk down memory lane, shall we?
It was the beginning of November and the talented but seemingly troubled Randy Moss had just worn out his welcome in Minnesota as he was surprisingly released. In a matter of a few days, the speculation of Moss coming to the city of Nashville became a reality, as the Titans claimed the future Hall of Fame WR off the waiver wire.
Fast-forwarding to the present, nearly two months and a measly five catches later, one of the biggest stories surrounding the Titans' struggles has been the non-impact of Randy Moss, who after being ignored when he was on the playing field, has been relegated to the sidelines since Kenny Britt's return from his hamstring injury.
|Jeff Fisher has coached the Titans to losses in seven of the last eight games.|
When Bud Adams summons Jeff Fisher to Houston after the end of the season, he'll probably want to know some things. Little things. Like why the team, which he pays Fisher to coach, lost eight of its last nine games. And why his team hasn't won a postseason game in seven years. And why the team with the best record in the league two years ago hasn't done diddly squat since then.
I'm sure Fisher's excuses will be well rehearsed. He's good at splainin things.
I'm not sure if Bud will buy the goods Fisher will be trying to sell him. I hope not.
