    SUMMARY: In the locker room Wednesday, Titans players appeared reluctant to take sides on the Fisher/Volek comments. "Billy, to his credit, didn't make it an issue when he was here," QB Kerry Collins said. "He really could've made it a big stink, but he didn't." LB Keith Bulluck said it wasn't a distraction in the locker room but was on the field. "I don't know what was expected of him from his coaches. I thought he was doing what he was supposed to do. I am not on that side of the ball, so I don't know what was going on in the meeting rooms," Bulluck said. "It hurt us more on the football field. … I would just say the quarterback situation, you never know who we are going with or which way we are going." WR Drew Bennett said none of his teammates were down on Volek. "It's the coaches' decision and we just kind of take it from what they say and go with whoever is out there," Bennett said. "I think most of the players just tried to stay out of it as much as possible and support whoever is in there."

    since Volek supposedly (per Fisher) threw players under the bus you would think they would speak out against Volek and said he caused problems. They are just more worried about winning and not the soap opera between Volek and Fisher.

    To me the biggest thing is how Reese has distanced himself from the whole thing. He wants no part of it. That tells me that Fisher/Chow was behind it all.

    If Chow schemes using the "talent he has" rather than having a system dependent on "Chow type personel" then wouldn't Chow have to go back to the drawing board and rescheme the offense for KFC as QB?

    If Volek was such a big distraction to the team, throwing teammates under the bus and what not, I have to compliment our players on being much better at handling themselves properly in front of the press than our head coach is.

    you dont even know what you're tired of, you just know it's chow?

    maybe we would have seen more deep passes last year if we had a WR that could catch the deep ball? or maybe if we didnt have a qb who was made of dust we wouldnt have had to dump the ball off to the tightends and runningbacks?

    we're weak in the middle of the offensive line, so our short yardage and goal line offense sucks.

    the chow offense works. we never have a lead or are even in the game because our defense gives up points every drive, so we cant run the ball. we dont have a qb who can hit open receivers, so we cant pass the ball.

    i dont have a problem with the play calling. i have a problem with the execution.

    I miss Steckel.

    Remember the only whining in the forum was that the Titans were winning too many games 13-10 on their way to 13-3 seasons?
