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.

YG,

Yeah.. I see that and the Colt factor is out there. Hence is why I am sticking by my guns on you know who.

Miami also found its future backfield with Thomas at tailback and Clay at fullbacPosted by: Mel | January 11, 2012 at 06:14 PM

How many games did Thomas sit out with a "Groin" Injury?, 12?, It should have read "Miami has found a player that is always injured", Just saying Mel Kiper is a Donkeys behind.

ALoco.. Get off of YG's keyboard already...

yessssssssssssss hugeeeeeeeeeeee we finally got a real coach. said hes picking us over them because he was afraid of relocation

Dusty,
Man, its the same article, being retold again.
its the same on on SunSentinel.
Same Lombardi story.

turn on nfl network, said 5 mins ago hes going with miami

THAMKD YG FOR THE INFO ABOUT THE FISHER'S SON......

Who the Hell is Mel Kiper Jr??

When did he ever put on a jox strap!!

TWC customer,
have to wait to see it on the web I guess.

said agent and fins now ironing out contract. man i can finally relax

1. Why why why does anyone want a head coach like fisher who coached for about 147 years and never won a single champsionship?
2. Why does anyone want a no-class guy whgo is offered a job, and then dilly-dallies and makes us wait for an answer. I hope Fisher is enjoying this little waiting game he is playing, but it shows what a jerk he really is.

Dusty Bottoms is about to become wet bottoms!!

I CAN SEE THE FUTURE,,,,,,,, FISHER WILL BE FIRED IN YEAR 3 .........


MIKE NOLAN WILL BE SHOWN THE DOOR NEXT 2 WEEK.....

yewssssssssssssssss lets rebuild now. playoffs here we come

I was just watching NFL Network and Lombardi reported no new news. Still just saying leaning Miami, which means nothin'.

According to La Canfora, Fisher is likely to command a title of executive vice president wherever he lands. In Miami, that title would trump that of general manager Jeff Ireland, which would shift the organization's current structure. Dolphins owner Stephen Ross is believed to be willing to spend to a higher threshold in order to land Fisher, sources said.

Sources have also indicated to Lombardi that Fisher isn't interested in a potential relocation and feels more comfortable with the structure in place in Miami than St. Louis.

he will trump ireland!!!!! this is awesome

0 AND 7 START MEANS THE PARKING ATTENENT NOLAN GETS SHOWN THE DOOR THISS WEEK.
(BUFFET OF KNOWLEDGE)

HEY, I mentioned the drama queen (Odin gets credit) Fisher, waiting for the Colts spot! He's not torn, he wants Manning AND Luck!

Thanks otherRick,
Dusty, man, you're killing me.

> Jeff Fisher is close to making a decision on his coaching future, sources close to the ex-Titans coach told NFL Network's Michael Lombardi, and it appears he will choose the Miami Dolphins

DUSTY BOTTOM IS A THIRD COUSIN OF THE GREAT SOILED BOTTOM, BUT WITH OUT THE HUMOR.
(BUFFET OF ACORNS)

***** TONIGHTS DINNER *****

Chicken Sinatra - Chicken Breasts on sauteed green and Hot peppers, mushrooms and garlic smashed potatoes.

MANGIA MANGIA...

Catch up later...

Forget the Schittenheimers! Sparanus' son Fishers' son......let's get ALOCO for HC!!! ((Buffet of Knowledge))

Dusty,
That article was from this morning. We ALL know that.
We're waiting for NEW news that something has ACTUALLY happened one way or another.
There are several reoprts that are repeatingt hat article, and those reprts are rgowing, but they are all referring to the morning artcicle from Lombardi.
Don't buy into it yet.

NY G////////////// CHICKEN IS THE WORST MEAT EVER ......SORRY ......AND W/GREEN AND RED PEPPERS, VERY BAD .....

Iam with Redsky, Lets hire Aloco, he may not win any games but it would be entertaining IMHO.

IS FISHER SON IS A QUALITY COACH ALSO LIKE THE TS'S SON ?

ANY DISH W/ GREEN AND RED PEPPERS SUCKS BAD ........

NYG made me hungry! Let's BBQ Aloco's iguana, the "bamboo chicken" of central and south america. Yummy!

My name is kris.
I am a bonesmoker.
And a jew.

Aloco, What's for Dinner tonight, And what's on TV?

ALoco,

Chickens are cannibals and eat dead chickens. So if a live hen or rooster eats a dead one, it still is ALL chicken and tastes good.

Oh, I forgot to mention the provolone cheese with the Chicken.

I'll let you know how the red and greens work out.

Jeff Fisher, huh? WOW, Mr. .500 will be here? Big frickin' deal you pathetic bandwagon jumping Dolphin fans. Why don't you take Dante' Culpepper instead of Drew Brees?

Guys!!! Armando has been located!!

He is outside at the Helipad with his glowing red sticks!!

Bring'um in easy Armando!!!

redsky.. ROFLMAO...

UMMMMMMM,BBQ Iquana, It's good, IQUANA the Other White Meat.LOL.

FP4FGs....thanks for the vote of confidence. Aloco for HC, plus he has good recipes!

What's up losers?

kris,
Finally came out huh?

Let's see we got 6 draft picks to cover for 7 departing free agents.
Maybe we can pick up Mark Brunell after he becomes available in a month.

Redsky, Maybe Odin for Assit. HC, That way we could all be fed right with the right Alcoholic beverage., At least sundays wouldnt be all gloom and doom.Again just saying.

If we use our first 3 picks on RT, RG & TE and then our last 3 picks on NT, DE & OLB then we can pick up a starting FS from among the undrafteds.
Jeff Fisher is gonna fix all of that.

How come whenever I share my opinion that armando is a fing douchebag, it always gets deleted. Why is nfl network more up to date armando? Is it cause you suck balls and are a useless twat?

There goes the sourpuss PriceMaster starting with the negativity already!! :)

Seriously, this is getting severly challenging. I don't have a degree in dealing with the retar........with those that are mentally challenged.

I wouldn't normally take offense except you question me and my faculties at the same time you expose your "In Depth" ignorance.

Here we go AGAIN:

Odin,
Do you have difficulty walking? Thinking is obviously hazardous.
-----------------------------------------------

-No. My walking and thinking are fine. Apparently I don't suffer the same afflications as you obviously do. SORRY!
-----------------------------------------------

Lets take your poor thinking.
-----------------------------------------------

-It's your poor and erroneous thinking that's the issue here, lets get and keep that straight RIGHT NOW. Thanks.
-----------------------------------------------

You had 5 picks, if you had picked a player you would have had 4 left.
-----------------------------------------------

-OK, now you see, this is NOT what happened now, is it? See this is how you're trying to explain away how you were wrong in addressing my initial statements in the first place. While making up fantasies and playing with facts can be fun, it's irrelevent to WHAT ACTUALLY HAPPENED and WHAT WAS ACTUALLY SAID. In short, you're trying to spin away from your obvious errors. Try to stick with reality if at all possible please.
-----------------------------------------------

You picked Thomas and it cost you 3. You had two left.
-----------------------------------------------

-There you go, you've actually, FINALLY made an accurate statement. I knew you could "DO IT"-ROTFLMAO! ;)
-----------------------------------------------

You would have had 4, you now have 2, it cost you 2 picks.
Simple math, if you aren't a moron.
Posted by: New Coach Wanted | January 11, 2012 at 12:38 AM
-----------------------------------------------

-Well, apparently you're a Moron too then, because outside of your absurb delusions, we didn't have 4 picks left after we picked Thomas.

Why do you insist on bringing in all these false numbers, scenarios and failed logic? Still trying to cover up your erroneous math i suspect? Well, I can tell you right now Brother, you're too late. We've all already seen what you posted.

I don't know how many times, ways or scenarios in which I can explain it too you. Sticking with JUST THE FACTS(something you refuse to do for some reason), the simple facts and the simple math are these:

We had 5 picks. After getting Thomas we had 2 left. 5 - **3** = 2. That's all there is too it.

It's quite obvious your initial assessment was erroneous and apparently confused the shyt out of you. You can't get around the FACTUAL numbers and the FACTUAL events that DID FACTUALLY and ACTUALLY take place.

Physics can explain how an elephant can hang from a cliff by a dandelion. BUT, were not talking physice, elephants, nor dandelions now are we.

As I said in the VERY first place, WE SPENT **3 PICKS** in drafting Daniel Thomas-PERIIOD. There's simply no if's and's or buts about it.

You would have done alot better and spared a little credibility by just realizing your mistake and moving on. I mean, saving face and your over inflated ego aside, it wasn't all that big of a deal. It surely doesn't consitute your attacking me for two days, even if you were right(which you weren't).

Ultimately, the fact that we spent 3 picks on Thomas wasn't even material to the point of my comment.

I was merely pointing out that being healthy and having a full off season will do Thomas a world of good.

(SHA-eeeesh!!!!)

Sorry Todd.
Since we are going to be celebrating a dramatic change in the history of the franchise I'll go along and pretend that Fisher fixes everything.

Odinseye,

Stop with the short posts playa!

ODIN,PLEASE REFRAIN FROM HERE ON OUT FROM POSTING NOVELS.THANKS
(BUFFET OF KNOWLEDGE)

I would rather have Marty S

ILL BE HAVING ROAST OF LAMB WITH BABY POTATO AND ASPERGUS, SALTED COD AND CEVICHE.
BON APPITETE.
(BUFFET OF MENUS)

Odin,
I agree.

PRICEMESTER,TELL US ABOUT YOUR TIME IN ARMY WHEN YOU WERE IN CALIFORINA.
(BUFFET OF KNOWLEDGE)

Odin, if I give you my cell# will you call? No, I'm not going to propose!

Is this the chatroom?

f... fisher he will screw us trust me he has no ties to no one he will go to the colts if cawdell is fired

I like Matt Morre he is our QB he throws the ball far with his eyes closed I saw his picture

Phins1324, we made that point hours ago!

Well Aloco Todd did ask me to keep things positive and frankly I've been stumped so you bringing up that incident from right after I got out of the Marine Corps would provide a welcome diversion.
However it is still early enough for children to be in here and I'm not drinking tonight so maybe later.

Anyone else notice Indy hired that Eagles exec?

Jeff Fisher, huh? WOW, Mr. .500 will be here? Big frickin' deal you pathetic bandwagon jumping Dolphin fans. Why don't you take Dante' Culpepper instead of Drew Brees?
