Titans coach happy with Moss

In a season full of mistakes, controversy and disappointment, Tennessee head coach Jeff Fisher maintains that bringing wide receiver Randy Moss on board wasn't one of them.

The statistics, however, may suggest otherwise.

In six games with the Titans, Moss has caught just five passes for 62 yards and has not caught a pass in his past two -- the first time in his career that he has gone consecutive games without a reception. For a player of Moss' class and ability, that's simply hard to fathom.

Even though they're clearly not using Moss, acquiring him, Fisher maintains, was the right move.

"It was not a mistake whatsoever," Fisher told reporters. "If we had to do it over, of course we would do it. He has been great. Randy has been great for this team. The numbers aren't there, the production is not there, the play time is not there right now because Kenny (Britt) is coming back.

"But Randy is a great teammate. He works with the young guys and has fun, so it is great to have him around. We have really enjoyed him.''

In the past two games, though, Britt has enjoyed the bulk of the playing time.

"Everybody would like to have 10 catches for 200 yards," Fisher said. "He's had such great games and such a great career, but it just hasn't worked out that way. But he by no means has been anything but great and understanding and understands where we are.

"He has bought into what we are doing."

Sorry Jeff, but we're not buying that last statement.
