    Should've had patience...
    The problem with that is also the matter of getting the coaching staff in place. If we'd waited for Fisher then we may not have the staff we have now and I'm comfortable with the staff we have at present.
    Time spent annoying a Packer fan is never time wasted...

    And the Fisher thing HAD played out. Are you kidding me? It was pretty much a done deal and that is why NO teams have coaching vacancies right now except for the Titans.
    The Titans had said publicly they were sticking with Fisher and dumping Young ... it was over. No reason to think otherwise.
    Should've had patience? So we should have been sitting around doing nothing for the last month just in case? That is ridiculous. There is a reason NO teams sat around doing nothing, because it just puts you behind everyone else.

    And what is all the love for Fisher anyways? A proven winner? Really? He has not really done much in years. Hell, Childress has as many playoff appearances and MORE wins in the playoffs in the last 5 years as Fisher in the last 7 and we all know how everyone feels about Childress.

    Fisher is loved because he stayed somewhere for 17 years ... it has nothing to do with his success. His success has been over for 7 years. In 17 years he made the playoffs 6 times and won 5 playoff games. Hell ... if we had given Childress 17 years he was on pace to make the playoffs at least 6 times and win at least 4 games ... pretty damn close.

    I like Fisher, think he is a decent NFL coach ... but all the talk like he is one of the elite guys in the business is a joke.
