Jeff Fisher stands up for OBJ - says he is open to CFB
LINK

WHY JEFF?

1. LISTEN TO THE OBJ response. He is mature and knows how to handle players

2. recruiting - how many college DCs can say they lead a team to the super bowl

3. experience - younger guys here don;t underestimate 23 years of NFL experience

You become open to college when your arse has been sitting at home for a long time. No NFL teams calling.

that is because he is 61. He still has some good years left doing what he does best, coach D

So he's pandering for a job? Please no. I don't want a coach pulled out of mothballs that's never coached at the college level and doesn't know how to recruit.

re: Jeff Fisher stands up for OBJ - says he is open to CFB
“I think it’s really disrespectful in terms of what people are saying about him in terms of being the losing-est coach,” says George. “You flip that statistic on its ear, he’s only a couple wins away from being one of the top ten winningest coaches. Compare him to a Jon Gruden. You know, it’s the same thing. It’s just a matter of perspective—the only thing about Jeff is he fell a yard shy of tying for the Super Bowl and probably would’ve won it.”

The problem is that Fisher didn’t win it, and he’s tied with Dan Reeves for the most losses by a head coach. He and Gruden do have similar records. But Gruden has a Super Bowl and Fisher came a yard short. So Gruden has a coaching job, and Jeff Fisher has become synonymous with seven and nine.

re: Jeff Fisher stands up for OBJ - says he is open to CFB
You might view Fisher’s first season with the Rams as a laughable “Jeff Fisher Day” 8–8, but he views it an improvement over the 2–14 team he inherited. You might look at his St. Louis team that never got above .500, but Fisher sees one ACL tear, several lost coaches, and moving 150 people across state lines to an uncertain future. You might see the Rams’ 13–3 record under McVay as evidence that Fisher couldn’t get it done, but Fisher sees the No. 1 pick he drafted blossoming into the player he knew he’d be. You might laugh at Fisher’s career .512 average, but Fisher sees the two teams, five different cities and six different stadiums, and wonders how you expected him to do any better given the circumstances.

re: Jeff Fisher stands up for OBJ - says he is open to CFB
“When people say that I ‘ruin quarterbacks’?” Fisher says, doing air quotes with his hands. “I had a co-MVP in the National Football League as one of my quarterbacks. I had a rookie of the year as one of my quarterbacks. I had a really good quarterback when I took the job with the Rams who tore his ACL twice. ... And yes, I was deficient. I probably could’ve done a better job surrounding the quarterback with better people, better players, maybe better coaches. But it doesn’t mean to say that I’m a bad quarterback coach. I’m not a quarterback coach, I’m a head coach.”

That’s part of Fisher’s problem right now, given this coaching market: He’s not a quarterback coach. He holds up his success with the Titans and McNair, and his brief period of time where things worked with quarterback Vince Young before their relationship fell apart, as evidence that he can win. He points to his 10–0 start in Tennessee with journeyman Kerry Collins, as proof of what he can do.

“I wouldn’t say he ruins quarterbacks,” Saffold says. “But you know, he’s a defensive-minded coach, so you can only go as far as you can.

“It doesn’t help that the Rams are successful now, because it’s a, ‘See, I told you so!’” George says. “You look at the Rams success now and you think, ‘What was Jeff Fisher doing?’ But they’re winning with his roster, the bulk of his guys he drafted. He knows how to build a team. We’ll see how it pans out down the line. But I think that Jeff’s a hell of a coach and I think he deserves an opportunity.”

We Do Not want Fisher anywhere near LSU ... As a lifelong Rams fan, I got to see first hand how bad of a coach and more so person he is ! As a coach,he was lazy and ALWAYS made excuses, throwing the team under the bud, not taking any blame. he's taken teams to the playoffs 1 time in 22 seasons, just 1 freaking time ! And as a person, he lied, berated and shafted many Rams players. I don't want him near this team, and he brings NOTHING to recruiting

Are you Jeff Fisher's agent? Promote an old, unwanted product.

The fact that he’s clearly pandering for a job makes me not want him even more. He mentions OBJ and says he’s open to coaching at the college level. I wonder which coach he’s trying to get the attention of.

No thanks. We can do much better.

Sounded rudderless to me.

He respects guys that come up to him pre game and say, “get me outta here”.

No thanks.

re: Jeff Fisher stands up for OBJ - says he is open to CFB
you make him sound like a monster.

Why does Eddie George and other past players call him a players coach?

And if he is that bad why is coach O friends with him?
