Jeff Fisher: Good Joke or Terrible Career Move?

After the Tennessee Titans lost their sixth game this season, making them 0-6, Jeff Fisher decided to have a little fun on Tuesday. At a charity event, Fisher was asked to speak, and then he had to introduce former Indianapolis Colts coach Tony Dungy. After he introduced him, he took off his shirt and revealed a Peyton Manning Colts jersey. This was then followed by Fisher saying, "I just wanted to feel like a winner".

Personally, I thought that this is hilarious, but then I got to thinking. The Titans and the Colts are not only having completely opposite seasons, but they are division rivals. What would Baltimore do if John Harbaugh sported a Ben Roethlisberger jersey at a charity event? Can you imagine? Ravens fans would be up in arms, yelling for Harbaugh to be fired. Regardless of the joke that Fisher made, it is a slap in the face of his fans. You just don't wear a jersey of a player from another team, especially one in your division. The fact that Fisher even owns a jersey of a player from another team would be enough to anger me, much less wear it out in public. Let's just hope for Harbaugh's sake that he has burned any of his jerseys of other teams, or at least packed them away in storage where they will not see the light of day as long as he is the Ravens coach.
