To the fans calling for Fisher’s job and Vince Young to start:
Anyone who watched football for more than three years knew Collins sucked and this was only a matter of time. Thatâ€™s why so many of us were against signing Kerry at all, let alone playing him. Last year he had 4 picks overturned on penalties and a back breaking interception in the red zone last year in the playoffs but you were all too busy bashing Vince to notice.
Now it is all about Vince. But Vince canâ€™t fix the secondary or get heat on the QB. Sure he can make plays. And I’m convinced he’s been the best QB on the roster all along. But we’ve still got mediocre WRs, injured TEs, and a defense that is playing poorly. If (when?) he comes in it is entirely unrealistic to expect John Elway, Warren Moon, or even Jason Campbell.
In regards to Coach Fisher (whose team radically overachieved last year): making Fisher the subject of all your finger pointing and complaints clearly indicates that you lack anything resembling perspective.
Heâ€™s no more stubborn or loyal or silent now than he was last year when you were singing his praises. Heâ€™s still arguably the best active coach in the NFL but you are spoiled by his past ability to make something out of nothing. Were Bud to do the absolutely unthinkable and fire Fisher he would be on the market for approximately .05 seconds before some team snapped him up or fired their coach (read: Dallas) to make him an offer.
It saddens me to be associated with something like this.
Grow up and get some perspective. Stop making the rest of us look bad.
The sky isnâ€™t falling, Fisher isnâ€™t the problem, Vince isnâ€™t the Messiah (although he remains our best option at QB).
The NFL is the most popular sport in the land largely because of parity. That parity allows small market teams with low operating budgets to compete but it also dictates that every now and then those small teams get crushed. It is just unrealstic to expect no down years.
Cecil isnâ€™t working out (maybe we should say yet), the secondary needs to step up, so dies the D Line, and the teams is simply suffering from breaks that went for them last year going against them this season.
To the fans not resorting to such knee-jerk and baseless back-seat-driving:
Take heart. We have talent, organizational stability, and a great head coach. Fisher has a 128-102 career record and has only finished last in his division twice.
This too shall pass.
