Fisher expected to decide which team he'll coach today

I believe today will be a franchise defining day.

Jeff Fisher, who has been weighing whether to take the head coach job in Miami or St. Louis, is expected to make a decision which team, if either, he would like to work for in 2012. Let me be more clear: I am not reporting Fisher will be named coach of either team today.

I am reporting that, according to one source that thus far has been spot on, the coach is finalizing his choice of teams today. Following that decision, I am supposing here, Fisher will tell his agent which direction he's going and negotiations will get going on a contract and various other details.

I do not know what Fisher's decision will be. But it's obvious that whatever he decides will define the direction of both the Dolphins and Rams for years to come.

The winning team will be regarded to be hiring the hotest, most experienced coach on the market. That team will get a head coach who is going to piece together a star-studded coaching staff. That team's credibility will get an instant boost without even one game under the new coach being played.

The team that loses the Fisher sweepstakes will be regarded as having to hire a secondary choice. That team will be rightly seen as having lost out. That team will have to answer to its fan base questions such as, "What is it about you that was deemed to be lacking in this derby.'

It's entirely possible the team not getting Fisher gets a coach that some day in the future does better work than Fisher. But that won't be the narrative now. The narrative now will be that the losing team, well, lost out.

So how do I know Fisher is scheduled to choose today. Well, since the start of this entire saga I've gotten half a dozen e-mails from people claiming to be close to Fisher or his family or his closest friends. One of these people has provided rock-solid information. And that person tells me today is the day he was told Fisher is making his call.

We'll see what happens. I'd expect something to leak before the end of the day is over and definitely by tomorrow as to where Jeff Fisher is going.

You stole my "THUNDER"-LOL!

DAMMIT!

Dont know about you guys, but:

THERE'S SOMETHING AWEFULLY "FISHY" ABOUT A TEAM NICKNAMED THE "THE FISH" HIRING A HC CALLED "FISHER".

Dont you think so?

Dolphins havent been revelent since "FLIPPER" died. Will bringing in a "FISHER-MAN" change this?

Lombardi is saying that Fisher will get a VP job also that will trump Irealand

NYGYOUV BEEN PROMOTED TO DONKY BRIGADE, CONGRATULATIONS, YOU MOM WILL BE PROUD
(BUFFET OF KNOWLEDGE)

ALoco,

WTF man?? I thought you promoted me back a few weeks ago. I hope this reflects in my stock options.

YG,

You're to funny today.

BTW, did you see my "Shout Out-Kudo's" to you late last night in regards to SpOrano.

I know you took a lot of heat about posting SpOrano would be in high demand.

He didn't land in Indy, but he is the new OC on a team that's been to two of the last three AFC Championship games. Not to bad for a days work.

Good Call!!!!

DB/YG/FB, WHY YOU BEING NICE TO ODIN,JUST 12 HOUR AGO YOU WERE GANGING UP ON HIM WITH THE REST OF THE DONKYS,BUT THEN AGAIN YOU DO TEND TO FLIP-FLOP,NEVER MIND
BACCALLA.

APPERENTLY ODIN WAS TO DRUNKEN TO SEE FLIPPERS POSTS LAST NIGHT.
(BUFFET OF KNOWLEDGE)

Keep Nolan,fire Daboll-ocks,full stop!! oh sorry ...you Americans say 'period' don't you.

odin kissing up to db yg. yg said sparano would be the hottest HC candidate and go to indy. not some lame half way oc job for the jets.

yg like craig they never admit when the are wrong, just gloat when right, and all know it.

ALoco,

YG was ganging up with them thar yahoo's?

I must have missed all that. And to think, I was giving him Kudo's and shoutouts last night.

I'll be Dinged Danged and Dagnabitted!

YG! WTF?

Any explanations? I thought we have pretty much always been Kool?

ALoco,

Odin and I have never fought. I wasn on lastnight either. I posted sparingly during the day, but not lastnight.

I guess maybe I had a troll impostering me if you saw something attacking Odin from me. I never read Odins long post when he's attacking a troll anyway. LOL

Sparano’s kiss of death here was wasting 4 years with Chad Henne

Odin,

I dont know wth ALoco's talking about. I wasnt even on here lastnight. I guess one of your "troll followers" took advantage of my absencs here to use my screen name to attack you.

That or ALoco's just pulling your leg to get a rise out of you. LOL

ARManDO SAID >>>>>>>> (( TODAY WE WILL KNOW THE WINNING TEAM TO GET FISHER .))..........

WHAT MASKES HIM THINK IT WILL BE A (( WINNING TEAM ))


Anthony,

Sparano's kiss of death was sticking with Henne? Who was he going to play Thigpen? We all saw how well that worked out.

Sparano's kiss of death was the fool Ireland waiting to late to bring in a qb. We got Matt Moore for pennies on the dollar and luckily he worked out. Moore has starting qb issues himself. But still made Henne look like a stiff.

Odin,
Do you have difficulty walking? Thinking is obviously hazardous.
Lets take your poor thinking.
You had 5 picks, if you had picked a player you would have had 4 left.
You picked Thomas and it cost you 3. You had two left.
You would have had 4, you now have 2, it cost you 2 picks.
Simple math, if you aren't a moron.

Well, at least me and Craig don't hide behind mul;tiple screen names out of fear of making ourselves look stupid. You know, like YOU do.

We don't terrorize and drag down the blog either.

Good Luck with first grade remedial course ;p

I'm starting to wonder if there isn't something to that whole 'waiting to see what Indy is doing'.

ALoco,

If Fisher signs, Sparano's son will be replaced by Fisher's son. The matter over hiring his son was one of the issues that led to Fisher leaving the Titans.

So, if Fisher signs, not only do we get a hc we get his son. Just like with Sparano.

Fisher's first act will be to fire Sparano's son and replace him with Fisher's son. LOL

ODIN,

13 PAGES OF TALK CRAP ABOU THE FISHER THE LOUSY OVER RATED HC ........ WATCH THE GREAT TOM BRADY SATURDAY NIGHT @ 8;00 PM VS DENVER AND WATCH HOW OUR BOSTON TEAM WILL DESTROY THE SO CALL (( TEBOW )).............

ODIN,WHY MR.FISHER HASNT COME FORWARD TO TAKE MR.ROSS MONEY?

Well, at least me and Craig don't hide behind mul;tiple screen names out of fear of making ourselves look stupid.

you make yourself look stupid with every post. and you have used multiple names, you know it and we know it. can't hide.

Heard there are many media trucks at the Fins facilities.. Looks like we landed the Fish-er

well another day has passed . could be waiting on indy and oak. please fisher sign here my friend

YG....IS THAT TRUE ABOUT FISHER'S SON ?


PS..... NOTICE ALL THE LOUSY COACHES HIRE THEIR LOUSY SONS .........

wez,

IM NEVER WRONG. ASK YOUR MOTHER. WE GOT TOGETHER AND MADE YOU! LOL

FAKE ALOCO AT 6:02. MANDO DO YOU HAVE ANY SHAME?
(BUFFET OF KNOWLEDGE)

Yes ALoco, it is true. Fisher hiring his son had a "final straw that broke the camels back" with Bud Adams. It was a "mutual decision" when they parted from each other.

YG,

Don't sweat it. I do remeber right in the middle of teaching the trolls how to count to Thuh-Ree last night, one of them posted as DB.

It was just a quick barb and I recognized the troll so easily, I had forgotten all about it.

Pretty interesting that ALoco remembered it so quickly and easily.

No sweat YG.

ALOCO?!?!

db yg, yes make a joke to hide from the truth. thats your style.

wez,

Your maother and I broke up because she wanted to name you weeze, I wanted to name you sleeze.

You see who won! LOL

I find it refreshing that the JETS players are calling out Sanchez. Sanchez looks like he's always running for his life and he goes from 6ft+ down to 5'8 as he always seems to slouchy.

Rex knows that his free pass from the back to back seasons is gone and if he doesn't make it this season. He's GONE and Sanchez will also be GONE.

ODIN, YOU KNEW I ONLY AS POSTS AS MYSELF.
(BUFFET OF KNOWLEDGE)

espn just said fisher will wait till friday to decide, this is killing me!

and psarano will take over,looooooool jets are screwed for years

YES I ADMIT IT, WEZ IS MY ILLEGITIMATE SON! ASK HIS MOTHER. LOL

DB,

Don't let it kill you waiting for Jeff.

I don't want Jeff but there MAY be light at the end of the tunnel as if he Wait's till Friday.. It's FRIDAY the 13th!.

Hopefully the day that Ireland get's WHACKED.

i want fisher badly and ireland gone

Mel Kiper likes Ireland, now will all you Kiper fans that bash Ireland change your view?


Kiper’s grade: B

Analysis: I liked Miami's draft this year, and it was a key ingredient for general manager Jeff Ireland to save his job. Miami only had six picks but made the most of them by getting five contributors. Pouncey is the present and future at center for the Dolphins and should be the starter there for the next decade. Miami also found its future backfield with Thomas at tailback and Clay at fullback. Both had great moments this season. Clyde Gates is fun to watch returning kicks. Even seventh-round corner Jimmy Wilson played 15 games (one start) and had one interception and a forced fumble.

mel kiper,lol

DUSTYBOTTOM,

IF FISHER ISNT SURE HE WANTS TO BE HERE, ROSS SHOULDNT BE SURE IF HE WANTS HIM TO BE HERE.

HASNT JJ AND PARCELLS TAUGHT THIS FRANCHISE LESSON ENOUGH ABOUT HIRING GUYS NOT 100% COMMITTED TO BEING HERE. EVEN IF FISHER SAYS YES, HE'LL BE COMING IN WITH BUYER'S REMORSE FOR TELLING RAMS NO.

WE NEED A HC 100% COMMITTED TO BEING A DOLFAN, NOT FLOPPING BEFORE HITTING THE FINISH LINE.

fisher likes the Miami front office and caochin staff in place, that is why he is choosing Miami.

Aloco, A couple quick Questions.
#1 Are you a writer for SNL.
#2 What drugs do you take when you write?
That last question is not being disresptive, but I really want to write Funny Stuff like yourself., Maybe you can be my Mentor.

Funny that the Sun Sentinel is running with the Lombardi story (with Rosenhaus addition), but Hearld says nada.
Still not buying it yet.
Sources and rumors.
I think Armando must be flying the Aqua-Chopper.

any job is a big move, sure u would take time if u were offered a job. his wife and family factor in on this also

NYG,

INDY'S HIRED THIER NEW GM. A DECISION ON THIER HC IS COMING SOON. IF INDY CUTS THIER HC BEFORE FRIDAY:

"THERE'S SOMETHING AWFULLY "FISHY" IN "FISHER-VILLE".

THERE MAYBE SOMETHING TO REPORTS HE COULD BE WAITING FOR THE COLTS HC JOB TO OPEN UP.

MR Ross, tell Jeffy to go F himself!! Enough is enough!!!

YG,

Normally I would agree but this is a big decision for someone accepting a high profile job. $$$$. relocation, family, kids etc.

I do NOT want Fisher at all but I cant blame him for milking it for all it's worth.. and he's doing a good job at that anyways.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/sports/breaking/fl-miami-dolphins-jeff-fisher-0112,0,3559913.story yeahhhhhhh babyyyyyyyyyyy

I bet if we offer Mike Zimmer the job he would on the copter right now!!

This is really stupid now!!

WINSTON MOSS AS HEAD COACH, ROSS AND MOSS WINNING COMBINATION

FISHER'S FROM SO CAL. MAYBE ROSS PROMISED A WEST COAST MOVE IN THE FUTURE TO FISHER. THE RAMS AINT GOING BACK TO LA.
