Heimerdinger to coach Sunday, even after Cancer diagnosis....

Believe it or not. If you are looking for a way to get a football team inspired. This probably would be a good way to do it.

Tennessee Titans offensive coordinator Mike Heimerdinger was diagnosed with cancer earlier this week. He and the Titans declined to be more specific than that. Heimerdinger will begin chemotherapy treatment on Monday. But not before he travels to Houston and coaches his offense against the Texans.

Read the original story on Heimerdinger when his diagnosis was announced,  from The Nashville Tennssean RIGHT HERE 

Heimerdinger didn't want to talk about his decision, but here is the follow up story from today RIGHT HERE

Thankfully, he consulted with his doctors before making this decision. Heimerdinger, who is in his second stint with the Titans is widely respected by his players and in coaching circles. In fact, he is very close with Texans coach Gary Kubiak, who he'll be going up against on Sunday.

Hopefully, the chemo won't keep him down long. The Titans are still in the playoff hunt and need him to be there and coaching. But the most important thing is his health. He knows that and the team knows that. We wish him well.
