I’m going to come right out and say that I love Jeff Fisher. Always have, probably always will. However, the biggest nepotist this side of Tom Coughlin continues his assault on our staff. It’s not surprising; Fisher has always shown a Dean Spanos-like rigidity in who he chooses to employ, and I believe his successes have granted him that right. Thankfully, Major Bud did the right thing and locked up the same front office that absolutely destroyed the draft last year. This from Paul K, courtesy ESPN and SportsFanLive:
“How much do the Titans value vice president of pro personnel Ruston Webster and vice president of football administration Lake Dawson? Enough that they shuffled their front office to keep St. Louis and Jeff Fisher from plucking either one away to become the Rams’ new general manager.
The team promoted Mike Reinfeldt to senior executive vice president/COO after serving as the team’s general manager for the past five seasons, and Webster was elevated to executive vice president/general manager after serving two seasons as the VP of player personnel. Dawson has been promoted to vice president of player personnel, replacing Webster.”
I’m glad to see the notoriously and historically cheap Adams do the right thing here. I’ve always believed that success is bred from the top down, and it’s nice to see an owner’s actions that reinforce that notion of success. I don’t think there’s anybody that isn’t excited to see how the team performs over the next couple of seasons. The team certainly seems headed in the right direction, and keeping people who make good decisions employed within the company is a strong indication of the organization’s dedication to success.
