Former GM’s wife rips Titans’ Jeff Fisher

The wife of former Titans GM Floyd Reese ripped into head coach Jeff Fisher on WGFX-FM 140.5 The Zone on Thursday, indicating that her husband is the only reason Fisher still has a job.

From the Nashville City Paper:

Sally Reese, who alleged that her husband saved Fisher from being fired twice in his tenure, indicated that she was happy that the Patriots routed the Titans in the fashion they did and hoped it would be worse than the final score.

“He kept Jeff from getting fired two times. So if he’d let him get fired, he’d still be there. Hello? That’s hindsight.” Reese said. “But you know paybacks — can I say bitch? — payback’s a bitch. Sunday I was hoping they’d run it to 100. And I love Tennessee. All you Tennessee people, my dad’s from Tennessee, but when you get sucker punched, you want to sucker punch back. My husband said it would be very uncool. He said, ‘We have to play them again.’ I said I only hope.”

Sally Reese also refuted that Fisher did not have input into the draft process while Floyd Reese was GM.

“Floyd had Devin Hester on the phone. He was going to the Titans. And Jeff wanted LenDale White. So Floyd backed it up, and you guys got LenDale. The Chicago Bears got [Hester], and that would have been the fourth Rookie of the Year my husband would have had. Not too shabby,” Reese said. “I just wanted to set the record straight, because sometimes when I hear what John has to say, I have to say B.S. to it. So that’s my story and I’m sticking to it.”

Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned.

During Reese’s time in Tennessee, the Titans won 106 regular season games, three division titles and nearly won Super Bowl XXXIV. I don’t know if the intimate details that his wife shared are true, but Reese definitely knows what it takes to build a football team.

That said, this sounds like someone who couldn’t wait to kick a team while its down and Sally took advantage of the opportunity after the Patriots (her husband’s new team) dismantled the Titans last Sunday. Either way, Fisher’s time in Tennessee seems to be running out. His team gave up on him two weeks ago.
