Winning sense of humour

Titans coach Jeff Fisher’s attempt at levity and a bit of humour by donning Peyton Manning’s No. 18 jersey at a charity fundraiser isn’t being received well by fans upset over Tennessee’s 0-6 start. The coach isn’t backing down. Fisher said Wednesday he wanted to bring some levity to his introduction of former Indianapolis coach Tony Dungy at a fundraiser for a Christian teen centre. Fisher says he thinks it went over well and can’t help if anyone was offended. And he’d do it again. The Titans are coming off a 59-0 rout by New England that matched the biggest NFL loss since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970. Manning says it would be ridiculous for Fisher to catch any heat for trying to have fun with a speech.
