And you definitely can't count the interim stint, he took over a team that was 1-9.

But a winning record overall, and not even close.

Why count any of his seasons? Do they really mean much of anything to how he'll do in his next stint?

Like Red Dog said re: Haynesworth, if you think he's good at getting the most out of his players and like his system it's a good hire.

Fisher had 17 seasons as coach for the Jags, but one year he was interim coach so I knocked 11 down to 10.
"Jags?"

I was thinking the same. But the new GM said he will take a week or so to make any decisions.

Yeah, I was talking to a friend about the Jags earlier, so I spaced that one big time.
Sub in Tits for Jags.

p.s. - I like Fisher as a coach, and was hoping that he would've come to coach the Panthers.

Were not talking about what he is striving for. If he is striving for anything less than 1000 he is an idiot.

Re: The 2012 NFL Offseason Thread

It isn't the 6 winning seasons out of 17 that's concerning to me. It's 6 playoff appearances in 17 years. Someone mentioned Coughlin, well he has 10 playoff appearances and he and Fisher pretty much started at the same time (1995 as the first full year).

As for the lack of talent, you guys do realize that Fisher has had a huge say in personnel and roster construction while he was in Tennessee. I mean he chose to start Justin Gage even when there were better options on his own roster. He had final say over the 53 man roster for the last few years in Tennessee and chose to do things like release Legarette Blount and keep a useless S.

He is a good coach but I'm not quite sure he is an elite coach that deserves all this attention. I will say this in his favor though--how he managed to win over 50% of his games with Vince Young as his starter is impressive given what has transpired with Young.

I'd take 6 playoff appearances in the last 17 years in a heartbeat.

Re: The 2012 NFL Offseason Thread

With this new math, I feel like I sold John Fox short for only having 3 winning seasons in his 10 years as the Panthers head coach.

Considering the Panthers finished 8-8 three of those 10 years, I can look on the bright side of things and realize that they only had 4 losing seasons.

Way to finish in mediocre fashion Foxy!

I never said he was elite, and I agree with you that he really isn't. But he's a good coach, certainly better than a lot of guys out there.

No one is calling him elite. I think no one is calling him elite.

Re: The 2012 NFL Offseason Thread

Haynesworth only tried in contract years for the Titans. I'm thinking fisher had little to do with that.

Also, the vast majority of his success was from 99-03... Sure, he the Titans were rebuilding, but his conservative brand of football left me cold long ago.

Oh, that and Lamont Thompson starting for 3 straight seasons. Or the Volek/Collins fiasco, Eddie George carrying the ball 20 times a game for about 3 years when he was completely washed up....

That's the only thing that concerns me is his conservative nature. I hope getting a year off of coaching let him re-evalueate some of that.
