Young's texted apology bugs Jeff Fisher

By Paul Kuharsky

NASHVILLE, Tenn. -- Jeff Fisher’s post-practice comments on Vince Young's texted apology are part of this story.

I tend to agree with the coach here – and on everything as it relates to Young and his Sunday blowup. Hard conversations with people in authority get decreasingly difficult the more impersonal they are.

Face-to-face trumps phone, which trumps e-mail or text.

On Twitter, several of you have already asked how Young could have done things face to face if he had been told to leave the facility on Monday.

But he could have showed up or called Tuesday to get in front of his boss two days after cursing him out in front of the team.

Young's Twitter account indicated he was likely already making plans to go home to Houston.
