There are going to be numerous stories that contradict each other over the next couple of weeks. Sit back and enjoy the ride.
As I have said from the start, Fisher is not coming to Miami...next.
Let's keep the 3-4 concept anyways. Get an offensive guy or I have to be honest, the more I read about Mike Pettine I like.
hopefully this is true. I don't want to switch to a 4-3 defense anyway. We have one of the best 3-4 linemen and a great rotation.
Perfect! i want nothing to do with a coach that had "15" years to try and win a superbowl.
So much for everyone here who kept saying "but no one can outbid Ross". :lol: Money doesn't matter to these coaches, it's about heart, especially proven ones like Fisher. He's going to be a Ram soon, it doesn't matter if Ross offers 3-4 million more.ut
if he is not interested in miami, why bother interviewing for the job?
i want a coach that wants to be here.
Curious, what has he proven?
None of the big names want to work with Ireland it seems.
Wow, when's he going to sleep ?
To drive up his salary in St. Louis.
Im fine with this. Ive already attached myself to the Billick train.
well if the article you posted is true then the rams would know he doesnt want the miami job.
What in particular have you read that gives you a positive impression of him?
I have from the start. I am just getting a vibe he will not be interviewed.
Peter King says the Billick rumors are true, but I am not seeing it anywhere else.
There is going to be a lot of misinformation over the coming days and weeks. Let's not overreact at every little news blurb.
He has proven plenty, multiple playoff births, two AFC title games, one Super Bowl appearance. His downfall was McNair's health and relying that he would get healthy and back to what he was, and McNair was a Top QB in this league at one point, he could have been a HOF candidate. But Fisher's defense was always a top defense.
With an established quarterback set, I have no doubt he will have that team competing again. He's a very good coach.
Bingo. Brian Billick WANTS the job. He said he wants the job. You want a big name, Ross? There's a big name who actually wants to come here and be our coach. Fly him in for an interview.
The #1 criteria for the job, beyond perceived competence, ought to be a desire to be the damn coach here. Do we really want another JJ or Saban who is just going to coach here because the owner throws so much money at them that they can't refuse?
I really am warming to Billick, another coach like Fisher and Gruden with a large layer of "fail" between now and his glory days with Baltimore as the HC and before that with the explosive MN offense as their OC. I think that the perspective gained from a broadcasting studio overview would help a smart guy like him not to repeat the same miscues. He actually wants the job, would work well with Nolan and hopefully find an OC who can replicate the early Culpecker Moss years in the Land Of Lakes. I think he'd be more appreciative of the opportunity at long last and unlike be less burned by others' decisions and as a result make less demands for significant control.
This is just speculation.. Not believing anything until I see an announcement saying X Coach has signed with Y team on nfl.com or ESPN..
One of the things that put me into the Billick camp was his proactive nature in addressing team issues. It was only a few years ago, and the year before he was fired, that he saw his team was having issues on the offensive end. He quickly fired his OC, Jim Fassel, and took over the job of calling plays. With an old Steve McNair, he led the Ravens to a 13-3 record, earned a first round bye and lost in the playoffs to the eventual super bowl champ Colts. He has his faults like any other coach, but he is smart and seems adaptive to change whether it be on the offensive end or defensive end
I said something to the extent that Ross wouldn't be outbid in another thread, so I assume this is directed at me as much as anyone else. From my end, I never said he would end up here or that money was the end all be all. I was just saying Ross will probably throw more coin at the hot coaches than most. I realize that doesn't mean they will land here, just that if they don't it won't be because of money.
I like the idea of Billick as well. I hope he at least gets a look.
yeah . . . why dismantle our defense and neglect the O? thats the opposite of what this team needs. the fisher thing would be the last nail in the coffin proving that ross is all about buzz and not about football.
one thing people need to think about, where these coaches go will impact the draft for instance, Fisher wants a QB in play not find one hence Miami is not on many HC list and that will allow them to trade the #2 pick or draft something else which pushes RG3 down some.
You are 50 years old, why would you come to a **** hole organization that can't find 1 QB in 15 yrs compared to one that has Manning/Luck, Bradford, etc?
**** fisher = loser ***** *** never won nothin.
All of the people responsible for finding that elusive QB are no longer here, with the exception of Ireland. Not a fair statement. Miami is STILL one of the all time greatest franchises as far as winning percentage goes. There are only so many NFL head coaching gigs. To me, if you need to go to a place where the pieces are already in place, perhaps you're not that good of a coach. A coach/gm tandem that can draft and develop their own talent, and turn them into perennial playoff contenders are the example of a good coach, and a decent GM.
Sounds to me like Fisher is as overrated and advertised. Doesn't want to get his hands dirty.
I don't take much stock in what the rumors say, last I checked Harbaugh was our head coach right? This is one rumor I hope is true because I want no part of Fischer.
I'd rather have Billick anyways. Someone who WANTS to be here and has actually WON a championship before. Get him to Miami, Ross.
Ditto. & it seems Billick wants to coach the phins.
