    On topic, out of the 2 choices I would reluctantly say Fisher as of now.

    So all coaches in the nfl are insane then? Im pretty sure if they call one play and it doesnt work they dont just throw that play out of the playbook because it wont work next time!

    Hey, i can see why people want him out, and judging by what he did during the season, its understandable. My point is he had no off-season to fully work with the players, why give him a 2 year contract if your going to fire him after a lock out and 1 season......

    looking at what he has done in the past, im sure as hell going to him a pass for that train wreck, he is a bright young mind, i dont see many better....

    Only those that call the same failed plays over and over (which is what I said in the post you quoted), without making adjustments.

    How do you know that the revelant adjustments werent made and werent executed properly by the players? I have no evidence, just a thought, maybe the players should shoulder some blame too...

    Re: If it was your choice

    I voted Fisher, I am not totally sold on him. But I do not want Gruden.

    As my best friend is a Bucs fan I have been seeing and hearing more than average about Gruden during his stint as a Bucs HC. And most of what I heard/saw I did not like. Some of my biggest issues with Gruden:

    *He drafted or traded for new QBs almost each year and he did not manage to develop any of these QB’s into quality starters.

    *Nothing was done to keep the team that Dungy build up-to-date, he just let it decline

    *Even though he is supposed to be a good O coordinator, the Bucs was all about defense.... So I give Monte Kiffen most of the credit for the victories they had during the Gruden period! Their offence was mostly dink and donk…

    *And another thing how many coaches have gone from winning a Superbowl with one team and won another one with another team? As far as I know NONE!

    So what have Fisher done? Not really much more. But he at least brings a lot of experience from a HC for many years. And the Titans have games I have seen with them they always played hard and where competitive, just to bad when you are in the division with nr 18.

    And I will give him credit for doing that speech in a Manning Jersey, at least he has humor!
