It's shaping up to not only be bad seasons for my two favorite teams, but historically bad. Laughably bad. Embarassingly bad. "Time to break out the paper bags" bad.
Vandy reached its new low last week when it lost to Army, the shittiest of the service academies. I like the army and all, but this was a terrible loss. Vandy's offense may be the worst offense to be fielded in SEC history. Perhaps the history of Division I. Our QB has lost all confidence. He was a young guy to begin with, and combine that with a beat-up, porous offensive line, and terrible WRs, and the results are predictable. And when I say bad WRs, I am talking about two white kids and a guy from Africa. Not exactly murderer's row there.
Then the Titans set their new low this week with the absolute roll over against the Patriots. There is no where to go but up for the Titans. I am not a knee-jerk kind of guy when it comes to coaches, but I really feel like it is time to move on from the Jeff Fisher regime. Just re-boot the whole thing, clean house, and start over with a new everything. There comes a time when it is time to make a change if nothing more than for the sake of change. That time is now in Nashville. The players are tired of Fisher, the fans are tired of Fisher, and Fisher looks like he is burned out.
The good news is I can just sit back and wattch football now, without all the angst of last season when Vandy and the Titans were both shooting for something special. Of course, that's what makes sports interesting, but oh well. At least I can still pull for the Saints.
