Jeff Fisher, our new defensive coordinator, spoke with reporters this afternoon: [Philly Sports Daily]
“I would say I’ve been coaching for 25 years and I think I’m tired and I think I need to rest. I haven’t thought about my future past this afternoon,” he said. “I am going to rest and we will see where it goes.”
Wait, a guy who was a head coach for 16 years isn't jumping at the chance to be a coordinator? Shocking. I surely thought that he would have taken a pay cut to come save the Eagles and lead us to the promised land. Really, I'm shocked.
Here's another thing for all of you sports radio callers who so desperately wanted his services because you've seen him on TV a lot: Andy Reid has a better track record- significantly better. Fisher might have been an upgrade at defensive coordinator, but he's not Bill Belichik. Of course, I know you like his mustache, fist pump, and every-man's beer gut. They are important traits in a football coach.
