might explain why they are 3-0 at home. they get away widit.
BTW, where was I pining for Jeff Fisher in that post? I essentially called him dirty and you have the berries to say that I need to "get over Fisher". lol.
The guy can coach...although he coaches with an edge. How can you say that he sucks as a coach? The Rams were awful last year and his team 3-2 and with a win tomorrow will be the "talk of the league" as being most improved. I am amazed how people around here cannot give opponents their due.
Ironically enough, with a win tomorrow, Joe Philbin should be receiving the same praise for a good coaching job and turnaround. Funny what one win can do.
LOL@ Fisher being a outstanding coach.
Not a Fisher fan at all, and we are extremely lucky he didn't come to Miami. That would have been brutal. He is a .500 coach with a couple of outlier years where he caught lightening in a bottle. Physical teams yes, but so are Sparano and Wannstedt teams.
lol Fisher sucks,. Six winning seasons in 17 years .. I've seen Fisher make so many stupid decisions why even get started. Just like Sparano. You always stay away from stubborn coaches like Fisher and Sparano who hate to adapt or see things in any revolutionary way. Fisher's high level of stubborness and stupidity is why Miami won some of those games vs Tennessee over the years. All Titans fans talked about was how horrible Fisher was at placing his players in the best positions to succeed. Sound familiar ? They wanted Fisher gone for years and years. It's just that Tennessee is not the media magnet other places are so it probably flew right by you. But watching him coach made it blatantly obvious, the fans were right. They threw the biggest party they ever had in that state when Fisher left.
Philbin is a far better tactical coach who can think 2 and 3 plays ahead with good feel for the game <-- exactly what his former bosses in Green Bay said about him, and I believe it.
So happy we didn't end up with Fisher. Guy is not a good offensive mind whatsoever in this offensive pass-happy era .. His offense is ranked 30th, the worst in the league now without Amendola. I guarantee you St Louis would be ranked 5 to 10 spots higher if Philbin had Sam Bradford. Philbin would have figured out a way by now.
Philbin has a great ability to look at the big picture when he makes decisions in games (as well as other decisons for the team), Fisher doesn't. He's a very linear coach. Fisher will wear out his welcome in St Louis within 3/4 years

There has got to be a play we can run like a pick play or something like that where we can get a TE to land blast that little hood rat. Total blindside him, maybe that will slow Finnegan up when he gets hit so hard he can't remember where he is.
:eek: Go Fins!
Here is what I think...if Jeff Fisher was hired as our HC our current record would be better. He would have kept (for better or worse) Davis and Marshall. He would have gone the veteran route at QB like he did with Kerry Collins. In the draft, I could have seen him go with a pass rusher opposite of Wake.
HOWEVER, whether it was by design or pure luck there is no doubt in my mind that the selection of Joe Philbin will make a better future for the Fins than if Fisher would have been the guy. Because of the Tannehill pick, we finally have a HC and QB that are tied. Joe also has a steady hand at the wheel. He knows what he wants in a player and is setting a foundation that can endure over time. Also, between Philbin and Sherman, the Fins have 21 century offense.
Was Joe Philbin my first pick as HC? No. However, I think overall he has done a very good job five weeks into his job.
