08:04 AM ET 01.13 | Like a great many life decisions, Jeff Fisher's choices are more complicated than it first appears. [These negotiations] are not necessarily about money going to Fisher. They are about money to hire a coaching staff, which is important because Fisher is reportedly constructing an experienced and expensive one. (He has invested quite some time the past couple of days compiling a staff.) The talks are also about power. And that's where Dolphins fans wanting Fisher should be worried. The Dolphins, you see, have a general manager in place. And that GM, Jeff Ireland, currently has power to pick talent. But Fisher wants the power to have final say over his talent.

Quit fighting over who buys the groceries. It's Miami, for crying out loud. Just go out for a Cuban sammich and a few mojitos.

That's the only reference listed on his resume. It used to be Vince Young, but there's a line through that with Jeff Fisher penciled in above it.

The Rams aren't waiting around... they're still interviewing candidates. Maybe the Dolphins should do the same.

Yeah, I thought Dolphins were supposed to be smarter than Rams.

It's like the applications we get at our business. People listing their friends and parents as professional references. Wonderful.

At least you can screen out anyone whose own mother won't vouch for them.

I love the clowns who list you as a reference, but don't think to ask you first. I've gotten calls from potential employers about guys I didn't think much of. Too bad for those guys that I'm generally honest.

Not these Dolphins.

I'll tell you whats taking so long, he has to pick between Miami and St. Louis.

If the Colts or Chargers were in the mix he would already be preparing for the draft!
