Jeff Fisher for Head Coach? Give me a break!


Jeff Fisher as head coach for the Jaguars? Seriously? If you want Jeff Fisher, why not stay with Jack Del Rio? They are the same coach. Consider this:

Since 2003 when Jack took over the Jaguars he has;

  • 3 seasons over .500 (2004 9-7, 2005 12-4, 2007 11-5)
  • 3 playoff games
  • 1 playoff win
  • Total wins 68

Since 2003 Jeff Fisher has;

  • 3 seasons over .500 (2003 12-4, 2007 10-6, 2008 13-3)
  • 4 playoff games
  • 1 playoff win
  • Total wins 66

Both of them had trouble with their quarterbacks, were stubborn in decisions especially when wrong, and wore out their welcome with the fans. They are not that different as coaches.

Jeff Fisher is the wrong man for the Jaguar coaching job and will not bring redemption to this team or city. Forget it.

    I would promote Dirk Koetter, because the Jags need a youthful coach who also adds continuity. And Koetter is ready for a head coaching gig anyway, so it makes a lot of sense to promote one of the league’s brightest OCs. And oh yeah, getting a better quarterback wouldn’t hurt either; Blaine Gabbert is awful, they need to bring in an adequate veteran. I mean, Gabbert just looks clueless out there.

    I agree that the Jags need an offensive mind as their head coach. However, I find Dirk Koetter to be less competent than other options. Since becoming the Jags offensive coordinator, the offense has always struggled to fulfill his schemes. He wants to stretch the field and make the offense more vertical. While both ambitions are good and can be suitable for an offense, it does not gel with the personnel the Jags have = A green quarterback, a very strong running back corps, a group of O-linemen that tend to pave the road more than create a pocket, and a group of receivers that make elongating the field and promoting more vertical options appear to be a fantasy that nobody needs to take seriously. I can’t see a Gene Smith and Dirk Koetter marriage working well.

    I think we’ll be looking at a college coach running a pro-style offense currently. Someone with a history of working well with quarterbacks and has a very balanced offensive philosophy while still creating mismatches with Jaguar-like personnel.
