Future of NFL's longest tenured coach in question


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Jeff Fisher insists he isn't thinking about whether the season finale at Indianapolis Sunday is his final game with the Tennessee Titans.

Fisher is the league's longest-tenured coach and he's coached more NFL games for one franchise than all but six Hall of Famers.

But his future in question like never before after owner Bud Adams' Super Bowl dream disappeared as the team imploded.

The Titans blew a 5-2 start by losing 7 of 8 games, the fifth time in the last seven seasons they've had skids of 5 games or longer.

Adams isn't happy and plans to evaluate Fisher after the season, even though his coach is under contract for 2011 at an estimated $6.5 million.

Going into Sunday's game Fisher said he is taking the same approach he always takes, which is to try and find a way to win a ballgame.
