The players hate each other.
The fans hate each other (I, personally, think Titan fans are morons).
It wouldn't shock me if the owners hate each other.
The only thing Tennesse has over us is they have a top-shelf coach, and we're stuck with Opie. Other than that, this is a great rivalry.
You know, I used to think the same thing and had respect for Fisher as a coach. Those feelings are eroding at a rapid pace. He sounds like his cheatin-ass players more and more everytime I hear him talk. He's a whiney son of a gun too. This is what he had to say when Schaub's knee was down by the endzone. The refs missed the call, but for his puh c to hurt like this is pretty weak if you ask me.
(on if there should have been an intentional grounding penalty on Matt Schaub when Marques Douglas nearly sacked him)
Yes, it actually was down by contact. There were three plays in there where had it been us I would have been okay with intentional grounding, but none of them were called. This one in particular, his knee was down and he was just desperately trying to throw the ball away. You don’t want the officials to officiate intent, but you can find receivers wherever you want on the field. I did not, we did not, get a look—I didn’t get a view and they did not get a view in the box at all, so it was unfortunate.
