    Default Jeff Fisher's thoughts on Ireland

    I think so much of that is unfair, Fisher said. I was very, very impressed with my visits and with Mr. Ross and Jeff. Itd be hard to find somebody thats more organized and has a plan in place. I just think hes an excellent evaluator. Hes got a great staff.

    Take it for what it's worth, but I thought it was interesting considering so many seem to think Ireland is viewed as a joke around the league.

    I find it interesting considering that many people thought he was the reason Fisher did not come here.

    This will get no play. This dispells the league's current whipping boy (us) and ruins a story that everyone can pile on top of. I've never heard my local Seattle ESPN affiliates bash a team on the east coast more than they have the Miami Dolphins the past few weeks and it's clearly just a lack of understanding of what's really going on. This will get pushed under the rug while other, less meaningful, events will continue to be brought to the forefront.

    Thanks for the link, RR.

    This will be called lying.

    We've now heard from Ross directly and from Fisher directly. Its looking like its 0-2 for CLB.

    Given the opinion some of you have very publicly shared on Jeff Fisher, I'm surprised you would place any stock in what he thinks of our GM.

    What do people think fisher would say when he was cornered by Mike Berardino at the Owner's Meetings?

    "I think Ireland is a complete fool and Ross is a rich clown, but I liked the helicopter ride and stone crabs"?

    This might be fisher's actual thoughts, but at the end of the day he picked someplace else. Just like Harbaugh and Manning

    More like we put stock in what he thought of that situation and how it was much different than what was played out in the media and by a lot of people here.

    There's a significant different between "not bashing" and laying on the complements.

    Again, the people who don't like Ireland will scream conspiracy. The people who are neutral/for Ireland will consider this positive evidence. Nothing changes. Folks have pretty much drawn a line in the sand over what they feel and nothing is likely to change their opinions aside from W/Ls.

    Actually it's more like, "but at the end of the day he picked someplace else, because they would give him management say and we wouldn't."

    Not similar to Harbaugh staying in SF or us not willing to pay up for Manning.

    as opposed to "anonymous" sources, and jilted football players. Quite convenient now you are being so skeptical don't you think?

    The flip side to that is taking what Joey Porter says as gospel or the continued reporting that Ireland asked if DB's mom was a prostitute out of context. ANd this is why I take anything written with a grain of salt. It either is from a "source" who know just a little more than me, is conjucture or is going to be interpreted as any of us see fit.

    I don't completely agree because I'm not going to scream conspiracy even though I don't like Ireland. But you're spot on about nobody's feelings are going to change. At least not until if / when he's fired. Take a look at the Sparano thread now to see what people will think of him then.

    You think Bradford is already a home-run?

    Def disagree.

    Not my personal opinion. I wouldn't touch Bradford. But I'd like to think Bradford is more set in stone than Matt Moore and Chad Henne (FA at the time). From Fisher's perspective, that is probably a plus.
