Hey guys, I know after today's game there will be a lot of these posts but I just wanted to provide my perspective on a next possible coach. I am a huge fan of Fisher. He's been to a Super Bowl that he literally almost won (one yard, maybe a yard and a half). He is a former defensive backs coach for the Eagles. He was the longest tenured coach in the NFL till he left the Titans last year. He is obviously defensive-minded and was a DB himself which would benefit not only Nnamdi and DRC but the safeties. He has experience calling the wide-9 so we could keep his boy Jim Washburn. The wide 9 is not our problem. I think the scheming for literally everything else is. We did see NA play man a lot in this game and he played well, so we know he's the same player he was in Oakland, he just needs a system that fits his press coverage (Fisher uses it a ton with Cortland Finnegan). He is also use to a mobile QB (Vince Young and Steve McNair). He knows how to use running backs appropriately (Chris Johnson, Eddie George, heck even LenDale White did well with him). We need to give Shady the ball, and Fisher will give it to him.
Overall, I think Fisher is the one guy that can right this ship without completely blowing it up. There is talent here. Nate Allen is fairly similar to Chris Hope and I can see him developing into that type of player (Hope started his career in Pittsburgh though). We need a defensive guy, and Fisher has done well with the Wide-9, the only plus on our defense. Fisher knows the linebackers we will need, so that solves that to an extent as well.
Is Jeff Fisher the best candidate for the Eagles possible head coaching vacancy at the end of the year?
