    Shakespeare is great theatre. This is a man holding two franchises and their fanbases hostage. It would be hilarious if both ourselves and the Dolphins signed a different coach and Fisher sat for another year.

    Yes they are. But how many have been disasters or the last 10 years.

    Don't matter the exp. level all that matters is getting the right fit.

    A offensive HC was my choice from day one. And Chud is the best out there unless we re-vist the past.

    If Fisher chooses Miami, is that like telling the current Rams Season Ticket holders that the Rams are definitely headed to LA? Since that is the likely reason he didn't want to come to the Rams? The Rams will play in St. Louis at least 3 more seasons. So they're not going to want to announce now that they are moving, since nobody would renew their season tickets. So will they string us along and be ambiguous about their plans?

    I realize they have to be coy now to get the most out of the February CVC pitch on dome improvements that they can. But, as a charter PSL and season ticket holder since 1995, I'm going to think twice about re-upping this year unless Mr. Kroenke makes a definitive statement after the February CVC meeting, as Mr. Shahid Khan did when he bought the Jags. He said, "I just want to share with you, I'm totally committed to Jacksonville." and "It is my renewed commitment to the city and to earn their trust. This is a partnership with the fans. They have to come and support the team, but I am committed to doing whatever it takes to win on the field," said Khan when asked about keeping the franchise in Jacksonville. "What I want to share with the Jacksonville fans is: here I am, reporting for duty ready to serve the fans."

    While it doesn't necessarily mean the Rams are definitely moving to LA, it means that Fisher was worried about a move to LA... Which means that Kroenke didn't assure him that there would be no move no matter what, which means that it is a possibility still and they are talking/thinking about it.

    Khan said what Khan could say in that instance without verbally committing to anything. "I'm totally committed to Jacksonville." Okay, but for how long? I'm totally committed to this cheeseburger, but once it's gone, I'll find another cheeseburger.

    Sounds to me like Fisher is bluffing (Miami over the Rams) and SK is calling his bluff (interviewing other candidates). What Fisher wants and what Fisher gets are 2 different things. I don't know if money or control are at issue, but I don't want him to have that much authority.

    IDC how successful a HC is, giving him too much control leads to Carson Palmer for too many draft picks, or Ricky Williams for an entire draft.

    I feel like if Fisher goes to Miami, that will be a great indication of Kronke's intentions.

    Just the gut going again.

    How exactly are they "scrambling?" There's a chance Fisher won't come here and they are looking at other options.

    Perhaps if fans/media fans allow to give some time, then there probably won't be that sense of disorganization. What happens if this team finishes, say 5-11. How much criticism is Bernie/Gordon gonna dish out??

    None of them b/c those teams' owners and GMs allowed them time to develop rather than a HC change every 3 years. I agree that all it needs is a right fit, and while I have my own preferences, which is the cooridnator route, there needs to be stability.

    AR, If they don't sign him then they are most definitely scrambling. There hasn't been a steady stream of candidates interviewing for the job....other than checking the box for the Rooney Rule.

    Why are people getting bent-out-of-shape over this. Who give a crap if we get Fish or not. I'm still not convinced that he's the best candidate, nor am I looking forward to watching boring football.

    Umm Ray Horton? Rob Chudzinski? Aaron Kromer (Saints assistant coach)? Trying for Jay Gruden? Dennis Allen?

    Thank you. 6 winning seasons in 15 years w/ a bunch of 7-9, 8-8 teams in b/w. And the whole Peyton Manning thing is a poor excuse. It's only 2 games out of 16.

    Exactly, except I do believe that when it comes to experienced HCs, Fisher is the best one out there. When it comes to all the coordinators they are all unknown. We have tried hiring a rookie HC twice in recent years, didnt work. That recent history will make people more inclined to like Fisher. Im not gonna be upset if we dont land Fisher, im gonna support the new regime whether they have a proven track record or not. The bottom line is this new regime is in a better position to succeed when compared to Spags and Devaney.

    It cracks me up how some people can read so much into what is really no news at all.
    Just a bunch of speculation. Patience, fellas. Chill!!
    It's all gonna work out.

    They just never had a QB that you could rely on to carry the offense. They had to be balanced. Remember the SB? We moved the ball up and down the field the entire 1st half, but only scored 9 points. McNair was struggling, they didnt panic, and they came out and ran the ball in the 2nd half and McNair performed better because of that. VY is similar, he needs balance to succeed. I wish I could expand a little more on the Titans offense when they had McNair and George but I was very young at the time and only had a small sample size of the Titans games I remember lol.

    If we're sticking with the 3-year yardstick of success (which I don't), then it didn't work. I maintain that Spags didn't fail, he ran out of time.

    If we go with another rookie HC, hopefully he'll be more likely to succeed, given the improvements of the last 3 years.

    Well I just based it off of them not lasting long lol. From a fans perspective, I think some people look at that and believe we have to get an experienced HC. I dont think Kroenke is looking at it that way.

    I fully expect that rookie HC (if we go that route) to be more likely to succeed. I dont care if its an offensive guy, or defensive guy lol.
