Yes! At least for a year it would allow him to stay coaching NFL level, maybe win a Super Bowl and set himself up for a huge payday as a head coach in 2012. For the Eagles with Fisher in charge of the defense, one would have to pick them as one of the prohibitive favorites to win it all in 2012!


"Yes! At least for a year it would allow him to stay coaching NFL level, maybe win a Super Bowl and set himself up for a huge payday as a head coach in 2012."

He will get a payday regardless. He was the coach of the Titans for 16 years. He did a good (not a great) job with the Titans and their constant turnover in player personnel.

Why take a DC position when he is clearly a good HC?

Take the year off, spend some time with the family, maybe get a cushy gig like former HC's John Gruden and Bill Cowher have done. Football is not going anywhere. He can take a "sabbatical" and some back when he is good and ready.

"For the Eagles with Fisher in charge of the defense, one would have to pick them as one of the prohibitive favorites to win it all in 2012."

Prohibitive favorites??? Um, no. They need to upgrade the OL because they risk getting Vick/Kolb killed. The Eagles OL allowed 49 sacks, 4th most in the NFL.

And they need to tinker with the defense. They allowed 23.6ppg, which was 21st in the NFL.

Fisher needs to pass on this job and sit out while he awaits the perfect opportunity.

Disagree???

Throwdown!!!

BRING THE PAIN!!!


Forfeited Turn


Wow, I really have my hands full countering that argument.

Fisher does not need to jump into another coaching gig right away.

Coaching is a stressful job since you are hired to be fired (eventually). Take some time off, chill, relax, enjoy your family and grandkids (if he has any).

If he absolutely cannot stand to not work? He can get the aforementioned analyst gig.

Take it easy, Jeff.

You earned it.

You will be coaching again. No rush.

Fisher will be back coaching after taking a brief hiatus to recharge the batteries and get the competitive juices flowing again.

The quote you found closed the debate, IMO.

No, you brought up a good point, that you can't always take a quote at face value and people flip-flop all the time. I do think that may have been the reason I won though, because being honest, I thought your arguments were better

No my comment won't help left at all. Was going to say that Fisher should take a year off. Get a one year gig with NFL Sunday Countdown or some show like that. Wait until 2012 and see what HC jobs are out there.

Yes sir.

The way I see it, until someone can find me 32 active coaches who are better, they both deserve head coaching jobs.

First off 5-3 is a joke. Secondly, adding a defensive coordinator wouldn't make the Eagles the odds on favorite to even win the NFC next year. Green Bay has 69 players under contract and have plenty of room to improve on their Super Bowl roster. The Falcons will be strong again next. The Saints will be tough again. I'm calling it right here, the Cowboys bounce back BIG next year. Also traditional doormats like the Lions and Rams will be tough next year and who knows, one might break through big. The Vikings need a QB to be a playoff caliber team. The Giants are close too.

Adding Fisher to a coaching staff would not make the Eagles a favorite in the NFC let alone the entire NFL. The Eagles need to add personal to strengthen their defense.
