    Re: Sources: Fisher using Rams as leverage over Miami

    With a career winning Pct. of .542 regular season and .455 playoffs, with Fisher, it looks like we can look forward to advancing from AWFUL...to MEDIOCRE! I never was overly impressed with the guy.

    Guess we'll see once he sets up shop somewhere.

    Much worse than say Gruden's .540 regular season winning percentage or say Vermeil's .524, right? How many realistic candidates for the job do you know who have a better record in the NFL? Still holding out hope that Cowher will come out of retirement for us?

    If McDaniels has to go for Fisher to come, it boils down to this.

    Who does Kroenke feel more comfortable with and will place his confidence in to help this team to victory? Is the sacrifice of not getting Fisher worth it to keep McDaniels?

    Does Kroenke even LIKE Fisher?

    Re: Sources: Fisher using Rams as leverage over Miami

    A couple of thoughts concerning recent posts on this thread. STOP OBSESSING OVER A COACH'S WINNING PERCENTAGE!! As has been discussed extensively by me and many others, this is only a small piece of the puzzle concerning whether or not a coach is good. Mike Martz was 30 + games over .500 and was NOT a great head coach!! George Siefert had a great w/l percentage yet was the beneficiary of inheriting a great team. Many other examples. You must look at the toal picture of a guy- and you don't last for 16 years in one place if you're not any good. Fisher is a quality coach. Either that or every owner out there who'd like the guy to coach for them has a serious case of dementia.

    And if Josh McDaniels becomes our next head coach, I'll check myself into a mental health facility.

    To be honest i wouldnt mind Josh McDaniels as head coach, IF we had a guy in total charge of personnel decisions, drafting etc. and we had a strong defensive co-ordinator.....

    Re: Sources: Fisher using Rams as leverage over Miami

    Trust me, I am not "OBSESSING" over anything football related...unlike many here. Just discussing some facts about the guy. Some other interesting facts on what a quality coach Fisher was: It took him six years to post a WINNING season with Houston/Tenn. Houston had a pretty great run (3 straight 10+ win seasons) before Fisher took over in mid 94. Would I like to see Bill Cowher...sure. Not gonna happen. How about Marty? He (clearly) still wants to coach. I am just not a fan of Jeff Fisher or Gruden. I know that the list of proven/experienced NFL HCs is quite small. I think building the FO is more important (at this point) than landing the big 'name' HC.

    Fix the front office.

    There is a reason the Patriots have been the class of the league for the last decade and its not because Belchick is only a great coach, its because he understands team building.

    If anyone wants to look at a larger sample, take a look at the Steelers, its their FO that has lead to great success.

    As a matter of fact, take a look at any great organization in sports, its the front office, not the coach responsible for sustained excellence.

    A coach is important, but I think its more important they assemble the organization correctly.
    Soooo you want this organization to have stability. Wow what a concept. Only wished that the past owner had committed to this philosophy. Moving forward this is what we need & it starts with ownership.
