Jeff Fisher stands out Dan Pompei Chicago Tribune The best available coach for any opening is Jeff Fisher. You could throw Bill Cowher and Jon Gruden into the discussion, but it's doubtful that either would leave his comfortable broadcasting existence at this point. Fisher, on the other hand, is very interested in coaching again. He has a 140-126 record as a head coach, and he has been to a Super Bowl. His teams in Houston and Tennessee were consistently competitive.

After a week of warring with Redskins coach Mike Shanahan — and failing multiple conditioning tests — defensive tackle Albert Haynesworth told a television station in Washington: "I'm tired of this B.S. I just want to get out on the field and play football." The whole affair has become a major distraction, which comes as no surprise to some people. Former Jets and Chiefs coach Herm Edwards, for one, predicted this type of mess a few weeks ago. " Jeff Fisher is a smart football coach," Edwards said, referring to the coach who allowed Haynesworth to leave the Titans.

The Arizona Cardinals threw away a chance to clinch a second straight NFC West crown. Alex Smith threw touchdown passes after two of Arizona's seven turnovers, Frank Gore ran for 167 yards and an additional score and the San Francisco 49ers kept their slim playoff hopes alive with a dominant 24-9 victory Monday night. With a relentless defensive attack, San Francisco (6-7) kept Kurt Warner from finding a groove. Warner threw two interceptions in the opening half after going 130 passes without a pick.

ORLANDO, Fla. - The debate surrounding the "tuck rule" has been put away for a couple of months. Since there was no consensus on how to change the rule, the league tabled all talks until the owners' meetings in May to allow all 32 teams a chance to study tapes involving balls being knocked loose from quarterbacks. The rule's current interpretation is that when a quarterback's throwing arm moves forward in a passing motion, it's considered a pass attempt even if he loses possession of the ball as he's trying to tuck it back toward his body.

Six years have passed since the Ravens and Tennessee Titans occupied the same division, but you could hardly tell by the hostility that played out during the Ravens' 13-10 loss to the Titans at M&T Bank Stadium yesterday. The teams combined for 21 penalties for 169 yards, and six involved unnecessary roughness or unsportsmanlike conduct. "Any time that we enter a game, we understand that it's going to be physical," said Ravens wide receiver Mark Clayton, who was on a receiving end of a blow to the face by strong safety Chris Hope in the first quarter that earned Hope a 15-yard unsportsmanlike-conduct penalty.

NASHVILLE, Tenn. - Through all 18 meetings between the Ravens and the Titans,there has been one constant for Tennessee. Jeff Fisher has been on the sideline. Fisher has led the Titans and their precursors, the Houston Oilers, as head coach for 14 full seasons and part of one other. That's longer than the Ravens have been in Baltimore. That's longer than any other NFL coach, with the New England Patriots' Bill Belichick a distant second at nine seasons. Since Fisher took over full time as head coach in 1994 when the team was in Houston, there have been 99 other men who have held the same job elsewhere in the NFL - and counting.

THE RAVENS HAVE stolen the Tennessee Titans' hearts. Tennessee doesn't want any piece of the Ravens anytime soon. Not in the next five weeks until the two teams are scheduled to meet again on Monday Night Football. Oh, the Titans might go on a roll and still make the playoffs, but they don't want to see the Ravens again. They can't win the key matchups. Despite the Titans having two weeks to prepare and the incentive of having lost twice to the Ravens at home last season, the second time in the playoffs, the Ravens again sucked the life out of Tennessee yesterday in a 26-7 victory at PSINet Stadium.

When the Detroit Lions were looking for a head coach, they wanted someone who was highly analytical. They wanted someone who could develop a philosophy, devise strategies and bridge a gap between the players, coaches and administration. On Jan. 16, the Lions hired Jim Schwartz, 43. Back over at Schwartz's old high school in Baltimore, Mount St. Joseph, Schwartz's former algebra teacher, Dave Norton, thought Detroit had hired the right guy. "No, I didn't know if he would become a head football coach back then," said Norton, an assistant principal and baseball coach at the school for 35 years.

The Ravens' John Harbaugh and Tennessee Titans' Jeff Fisher should be Coach of the Year candidates. But my choice is the Atlanta Falcons' Mike Smith, former linebackers coach for the Ravens. Fisher and Harbaugh already had a base on which to build, and they had good players on the roster. Smith was basically starting from scratch. ( For more, go to baltimoresun.com/ravensinsider)
