08:03 AM ET 11.25 | In Jeff Fisher's world, a text message doesn't rise to the level of adequate apology. Titans quarterback Vince Young sent an apologetic text message to Fisher on Monday, but it doesn't sound as if Fisher thinks much of it. ... Fisher indicated that he would have preferred a face-to-face effort on Young's part. "I'm not a real big text guy," Fisher said. "I'm not really into this new-age stuff. I don't Twitter or tweet, but I think face-to-face is a man thing." Fisher said the apology didn't improve the standing between coach and player.

Are you saying that it is not ok to break up with your girl friend via text message?

Young's a putz.

it's over

I think Fisher is going to keep using this to either get let go by the Titans so he can take a job with another team or force them to dump VY. One of them will be gone.

One day, maybe 30 years from now, Young will grow up and become a man. Maybe. Doubtful. But maybe.

I am waiting for his momma's press conference to defend her little girl.

Vince Young proving once again that he is an immature childish wanker!!

No. Never.

That said, either Fisher will go or VY will. Who will it be? Will Bud Adams admit that VY is a waste of time & money? These & many other questions....

If VY wants to be considered a leader on that team, he needs to man-up and have a face-to-face conversation with his coach.

now that the Titans are going to start some rookie QB from Florida Atlantic, how long is it gonna be before Randy Moss has a meltdown?

VY apologized for his tantrum via text message? What is he, 13?

Did he have a friend pass him a note during study hall that read, "Are you still mad at me? Circle yes or no."

I don't know why not. It's not like you want to see her any more. It makes it a lot harder for her to slap you or break your stuff.

Damn sure saves that "I'm confused" speech while she's looking you in the eyes.

Texting is for women anyway....so you metrosexual males out there...you look foolish

Fisher would be in hi-demand if the Titans go with Young. He knows how to run a club. Young has not proven anything in the NFL other than he is bi-polar, fragile, ego-maniac. VY would probably fit well in Oakland.

True.Bud Adams will decide. If he is still stuck on VY, then that is that and these will be known as the good old days .

He can tweet his O line now apologizing for being such a baby. Maybe even do it via private message, to make it more personal and heartfelt.

Vince Young may be a gifted athlete but sometimes he isn't real smart -- he needs to man up and talk to the coach face-to-face ...
