Reese’s wife hammers Titans

The wife of former Tennessee GM and current Patriots senior adviser Floyd Reese called a Nashville radio station Thursday to hammer the Titans and coach Jeff Fisher, accusing the franchise of treating her husband poorly and saying she was hoping New England would have scored 100 points against Tennessee last Sunday.
Sally Reese, the wife of Patriots senior adviser Floyd Reese, called WGFX-FM in Nashville on Thursday to defend her husband, who she says lost a power struggle with Fisher. Reese was let go by the Titans when his contract expired in January 2007. After spending a year working for ESPN, Reese was hired by Bill Belichick on Jan. 27.
“He kept Jeff from getting fired two times,” Reese said of her husband, who was with the franchise for 21 years. “So if he’d let him get fired, he’d still be there. Hello? That’s hindsight. … 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.”
She said the team treated her husband shabbily on the way out of the door, alleging that her husband wasn’t even allowed to clean out his office when told the franchise was going in a new direction. She also said a senior team official wrote a statement supposedly from her husband.
Last Sunday, Patriots handed Fisher and the Titans a 59-0 loss last weekend that matched the biggest defeat in the league since the NFL-AFL merger in 1970.
