    Stacy is better than people want to admit. He's not a burner but he's very solid and has some of the best vision I've ever seen from a back.

    No BS Fisher was definitely the problem around here. Nick Harper? Chris Henry? The way he managed VY? Granted, VY didn't help a damn thing with his antics, but I think he could have been much more successful under another coach. Plus the whole McNair situation. Never listing Britt as #1 on the depth chart. Having Randy Moss and Kenny Britt on the same roster and only using them simultaneously on 8 plays over the course of 8 games. He got stupid and stubborn in his later years. He may go on to be successful somewhere else, and he certainly does "know his stuff" as you put it, but he was most definitely the problem, not the scapegoat.

    Sometimes good coaches get stake in a place and need to move on. That's what happened here. He's a good coach. No bitterness here.

    Yep. An owner must understand that Fisher is a complete control freak. if you're willing to let him handle everything and never overrule him on anything, he'll do a good job for you. If you decide to draft a QB that he doesn't want with the 3rd overall pick, you can expect him to be bitter and childish about it. Jeff Fisher let being right about VY become far too important to him during his last years in Tennessee imo.

    I guess I can agree with some of what you guys are saying. Perhaps he did get a bit stale and stubborn in his last days here. It just bugs me how much Fisher blaming/bashing goes on here. He was a good coach things just didn't workout for various reasons. He's like a less successful Andy Reid to me. I'll always love Fisher but I hope we whoop his ass this season. I wanna see baby Pollard or Pollard himself knock the snot out Jared "I should be paid like a wide receiver" Cook.

    To me it was very similar to the Fulmer situation at UT. The message got stale, discipline got lax, the images took over the asylum, not enough player leadership.

    Some of that's on fish, some isn't. Sometimes, you just gotta move on, even if the guy is a good coach. I respect fish, and have no hate at all. Good coach, good man. It had just run its course here is all.

    I agree with you on a lot of what you said in your post except this because obviously VY had two more shots after he left up and was LESS successful not more. One of those coaches, Andy Reid, should have been a perfect fit for him and he still failed miserably. I'd say Fisher got more out VY than just about any other coach could have. You can't turn chicken sh/t in to chicken salad no matter what you do...lol!,

    Without Ogletree and Jones, I would consider their draft a failure.

    They're lucky no one took Ogletree before #30.
