Wanted Philbin from the beginning. Was glad we got rid of J. Long, he wanted to much money. The only thing I was upset about was I wanted Tavon Austin in the draft. But I will tell u when we moved up to take D. Jordan I was ecstatic!
chris long opposite quinn is a pretty darn good football player...brockers though hasn't turned the corner...and they really need him to...
hoops scoops 2012 season ..."in 2014 ryan tannehill etches his name in stone amongst the games elite qbs"..."ryan tannehill and andrew luck will carry the afc for the next decade plus the way peyton manning and tom brady have this last decade plus"
Hindsight is definitely 20/20. I was one guy clamoring for a proven head coach 2 offseasons ago. I wouldve been very happy with someone like Gruden/Cowher/Fisher, because those guys have track records, I had an incredibly bad taste in my mouth from the Cam Cameron and Sparano-led teams. But from the moment I heard that Fisher was leaning towards the Rams job because he had a QB over there, I was all for running far away from him. Sam Bradford is garbage, he does not have the talent and most importantly, the leadership qualities that the best QBs in the league have. To be honest, Tannehill in his 2nd year has shown me WAYYYYYYY more than Bradford ever has. If Jeff Fisher can't pickout a legit franchise QB, he had no business coming here anyways. The best move for Les Snead would've been to stand pat at 2 and take RG3 a few years ago and get out from under that terrible Bradford deal. Im glad its not our problem
So, im glad Fisher has his REAL Quarterback in St Louis. I am also glad that Cook and Jake Long chose the Rams over us. Those guys are not winners. We dodged a HUGE bullet...
Trust in Tanny
The biggest difference is Sam Bradford is total trash.
I was never a fan of Jeff Fisher, but any coach who inherited that horrible QB- who has the awareness of a box of rocks, was on the road to getting fired sooner rather than later. The writing was on t he wall right from the coach hiring press conference for ANY coach who had to depend on that crap QB to lead his team.
I liked the Joe Philbin move from the get-go (I know, easy to say now), but you could just tell he had the right demeanor and had something to prove as a new HC.
I remember the tragedy that struck his family right around the time of his hiring (slightly before?) and thinking "this is exactly the chance this guy needs to show he's a good HC in this league"
I wasn't sold on the Philbin hire until his introductory press conference.
I could tell right away that he was not going to be another meatball.
Now I am become coach, the destroyer of teams.
Do I get to gloat and bring up old posts where I was yelling that Fisher sucks and we need to grab Philbin, and I said this before Fisher turned us down?
Do I? or will that seem childish
But it would be so fun =(
