I hope they fall flat on their behinds this year. I never had anything against the Titans, but this is so disrespectful. Plus they got those loud mouth jack azzes Pacman and Hope. Man, I'm beginning to hate more and more teams out there, the madness has to end.

I like Fisher though. He has been there forever through the good and bad also. He is a good coach, I see him turning the Titans around soon.

Makes me wonder though, how involved was Fisher in making this decision? As AquaInferno suggested, McNair would have been the perfect person to groom Leinart, or whichever QB they take with their 3rd pick.

One thing is for certain, whoever TEN picks is gonna have to carry a huge load on their shoulders, especially now that TEN is ranked to compete. Too much for a rookie QB if you ask me. :shakeno:

Wow, by far the most un-classy thing I have ever read. Just unbeleivable.

If they do in fact release him, I can see him land in Minnesota as their starter, or perhaps Oakland-- where Vince Young may be drafted and likely be groomed by Steve.

He is on the cap for 24 million and 9 million in salary. If he gets hurt there they owe him the full amount. They have been working on a deal for 3 months and McNair has become less then agreeable.

If they get a new contract done then there is no issues. Its not unclassy, its smart. Cannot mortgage your entire team over a player who hasnt even been able to practice with his teammates the past two years becase he has become increasingly fragile. Another injury now, under that contrac - in spring, can sink them.

The reason why he's such a big cap hit this year is that he has repeatedly restructured his contract in order to get the Titans under the cap in previous years. All the backloading and deferred bonuses are coming home to roost. I can understand McNair not being agreeable to restructuring because he's worked for less than what he was worth in the past because of promises to make it up to him in the future.

The Titans have promised McNair that they will pay hm what he's worth, and now the check has come in they don't like it. In my books thats a Titans problem, not a McNair problem.

Up in arms




The NFL Players Association filed a grievance against the Titans on behalf of Steve McNair (http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/football/nfl/players/3114), accusing the team of breaching the quarterback's contract when it barred him from working out at its facility.

McNair was told last Monday that he couldn't work out at the Titans' training property until his contract is reworked. If he McNair got hurt during the offseason workouts, the Titans would be on the hook for all of his $23.46 million salary cap figure for 2006.

The NFLPA filed a grievance for breach of contract on McNair's behalf late Friday, general counsel Richard Berthelsen said.
"He has a contract and he wants to comply with that contract, especially that part that says he must remain in excellent physical condition and give the best of his ability to the club," Berthelsen said. "And they're trying to keep him from fulfilling that function for the sole reason they want him to renegotiate his contract so they have a better deal with him."

as an old time Oiler fan I can tell you that Bud Adams is a big pile of classless _____ fill in the blank. The screw job he did on Houston was unbelievable.

Having said this I always liked Fischer. It sounded like from some of the quotes from Fischer and Reese, who were not in town when McNair was barred, that they did not know it had happened. It was reported n the Houston paper that this was Bud's doing
