NFL  > Tennessee Titans  > Moss in Tennessee
November 4, 2010, 12:47 PM
I'm not so sure that Jeff Fisher will be able to coral Randy Moss. After playing in New England and being apart of their organization, I don't know if Randy could or would play anywhere else with the same heart. I'm not saying he won't play well. But you just have to wonder. After his love fest and the fact that he was waived can he play for any team in the NFL right now? Jeff Fisher is going to have an interesting situation on his hands with a run first team.

Not sure about Moss, except Moss still has no ring, Mongo think that is the only reason Moss has to play. The ring was no longer possible in Minnesota so Moss went rogue. Moss should do well for Fisher as long as the "ring" is still possible.

There aren't many coaches in the NFL can handle Moss, but Fisher is one of them. He's been around since Moss was in college (16 years, I think).

I think Fisher will handle Moss just fine. Moss has no leverage - his contract is over at the end of the season. If he doesn't keep himself in line, Fisher will not extend his contract and he'll be a free agent at the end of the season (with a huge potential for lockout in 2011).

If he didn't notice that 22 teams passed on him, he truly is an idiot.

While I didn't check this...on ESPN this morning they said that Vince Young is currently the number 1 rated passer and that the Titans have thrown the ball downfield more times than oany other team this year....
so maybe they aren't as "run first" as you may think

Tennessee is ranked 10th in rushing the ball and 24th http://www.nfl.com/stats/categorystats?archive=false&conference=null&a mp;role=TM&offensiveStatisticCategory=TEAM_PASSING&defensiveStatist icCategory=null&season=2010&seasonType=REG&tabSeq=2&qualifi ed=true&Submit=Goin passing.

They're run first.

I have been watching the Oilers/Titans for a long time. They are a run first team. Vince is quietly having a good season, but until he puts up Peyton Manning numbers most people won't notice him.

I like Jeff Fisher at times. Then there are times when I question his professionalism. We'll see. I just have this weird feeling that this will go one way or the other.

I tend to agree, doubtfully this just stays in the middle and does not go anywhere.

So now I did check....through 8 games the Titans have 209 pass attempts and 235 rush attempts. Of the rush attempts, 23 have been by the quarterbacks. If you take away those 23 QB rush attempts, then you have 209 passes and 212 rushes. And they still have thrown the ball downfield more than any other team (according to ESPN).

Makes perfect sense that the Titans rolled the dice on Moss.......Britt's out for an "indefinite" amount of time with a dinged-up hammy. Chris Johnson's numbers have fallen off precipitously from last year. The Titans are now close to a pass-first team.........Depending on the version of Moss they get, Dr. Jekyl or Mr.Hyde, this is either a savvy pickup or a significant clubhouse detraction.....................

And that is the key right there.

When you have Chris Johnson you can do that. I just hate to see Kenny go down like he has. He has a lot of talent. And the Titans needed him to do what he had done against Philly again. But we shall see what else transpires.

Moss really may like to play with Vince by the way because of his style. But Vince needs to work out his injury issues too.
