And did I mention they fired their DC too.
    That's also explains why he was cut from Houston too I guess. I mean of course there is no way that Fisher might recognize if Smith was playing better in all that time. Both of thise winning percentages are better than our current coach in two years or current owner in 5 years.
    Lets no forget that Fisher was your favorite owner's top choice as coach but couldn't agree because he didn't want Ireland. A year later neither did the same owner. By your logic nothing our owner ever does can be right since he has put out a non winning product every season he has owned and resigned his coach and GM in consecutive years only to end up firing them the next.
    When death smiles upon you, the Infantry man smiles back. WV says Im not a patriot and Jeff Ireland is a Boss so it must be true.

    My favorite owner is Mickey Arison and he hired my favorite exec/GM.. so what you're spouting is a fallacy. And something tells me if Ross let Philbin hang in there as long as Bud Adams and Kronke did/have, he'd be dong better than zero winning seasons in 4 and definitely 2 in 9. Fisher should base his decisions on the George Costanza strategy: if I feel it's the right thing to do, I'll do the opposite. And if Smith was so bad in Houston, why did Fisher bring him on? 6 winning seasons in 18 and half? Come on, if Fisher thinks it's a sunny day, I'm bringing my raincoat. Gibson has already proved those 2 bozos wrong and I have no agenda to think their misuse of Smith was an anomaly to their overall decision-making records. Who doesn't believe that the Fisher/Schotty "braintrust" would have kept Bradford and traded the rights to Luck away if they had that opportunity? LOLOL

    Their braintrust has been no worse than ours. Not that I like theirs any better than ours. I didn't want fisher and I definitely did not want philbin.

    As for Micky Arison football is so different than BAsketball you cannot even compare owners. Only in basketball can u compete for a championship then suddenly have only one player under contract.
    The only team I really admire in Basketball is the Spurs because they actually built a team from the ground up and built through smart drafting and trading.
    Im not a spurs fan but you have to admire how that team was put to together and beat the more celebrated team. Im a Celtics fan and hope we are on the right path but I give credit where its due.
    Basketball overall very teams really have a shot to win it all and a city like San Antonio constantly putting out a superior product while retaining players is downright amazing in the current NBA.

    Maybe those guys on that site could rate the teams in order and we could just crown a SB champion now, saving future concussion lawsuits and a lot of pain and suffering by the players. We'd even have the draft order for next year all set. Plus, we'd know we would never again have a Bullygate, Spygate, Bountygate, or any other gate type scandal. Although I guess off season scandals would skyrocket as players would have even more time to find trouble. Gotta work that part out.
    Thanks for the sig, Nublar.
