The day after his team lost to New England 59-0 two weeks ago, Jeff Fisher surprised a Tennessee audience by wearing a Colts jersey to a Tony Dungy charity event in Nashville. Fisher punctuated the appearance by saying, “I just wanted to feel like a winner.”
(If I was Dungy, I would’ve covered for Fisher. Bad form.)
Yea, it was probably a stupid move by Fisher, but at least he was raising money for charity. Right Tony?
The NASHVILLE TENNESSEAN has photos today of Tennessee Titans coach Jeff Fisher wearing a Indianapolis Colts Peyton Manning jersey.
(Bad idea or comic relief?)
Fisher wore the jersey as a surprise in introducing Tony Dungy for a speech today in Nashville. Fisher added, “I just wanted to feel like a winner.“
Okay, that’s a little strange. I don’t think it’s that big a deal, but at least one prominent Tennessee sports radio host, Chris Vernon of Fox Sports Radio 730 in Memphis, Tweeted that he thinks Fisher should be fired for the display: “i know he was doin it for Dungy– he should be fired- and i have defended him- but that is incomprehensible.“
What would you do if you were Owner Bud Adams?
