Parcells hasn't been a magic man in a decade and last I looked Jimmy was choking an dying in Miami. Seriously, THAT is exceeding your expectations?

All posts are opinions in case you are too stupid to figure that out on your own without me saying it over and over.
If you think Manziel is the best QB in this draft I can safely assume you are an idiot and will treat you as such.

Again, at least he has proven to put competitive teams on the field. He only had 3 really bad seasons in his tenure. His teams were VERY competitive with a sound defense, right now taking a guy with a track record like that over an unproven guy is the way to go.
The goal in football, imho, is to be a great superbowl winning team...not consistently mediocre aka "competitive".  Hiring Fischer would lead to consistent mediocrity, and while an improvement over Morris, settling for mediocrity is gutless imho.

Yet every team with a vacany at HC wants a piece of him....you don't get looked at if they don't think you can't fix it unless you are the Glazers.

I expect cyberdude and Java to join you shortly in the blind hate of our next headcoach

You realize that for some people there is no perfect candidate, anyone will not meet the Second Coming expectations they have.

They would have a fit about Tom "3 Losing Seasons in a Row" Coughlin or Bill ".450" Bellichek as well.

Using your "no track record critieria" you have have preferred Morris' potential for greatness over Fisher's proven mediocracy? Good plan.

Both of those guys are light years ahead of any of the other names being tossed around.  Looking at the current crop of "probable" coaches feels like evaluating a really weak weak draft class...we need to think outside the box to get a great coach.  And make no mistake, we need a great coach, not one thats just better than Morris.

Absolutely.  Id prefer to gamble than knowingly choose to wallow in mediocrity.  They rolled the dice on Morris and he was a collosal failure, we cut at the bud and roll the dice again and hope you hit it big.  Hiring fisher just feels like settling to get married to a chic with half her teeth missing just because its better than the toothless one we had before...I'm sorry but I just find it unacceptable.

Listen, this franchise is far from a "great Super Bowl winning team". Get over it. Right now, we just need to be pointed in the right direction. Everything else is just gravy. Fisher will get these kids in the right step. And once these young promising players turn into vets and enter the prime and he still can't get the job done, that's when we call it quits. Right now, I want him to at least get the sink above water.

..if you like 4-12 and 5-11 seasons sandwiched between 12-4 and 8-8 seasons....I guess he is your guy.

17 years, and he only had 3 bad seasons. Is it really his fault he had one of the greatest QB's in NFL history in his division?

He's been able to deal with a whackjob owner, a franchise move, lousy Qbs other than McNair. I'm all for hiring him.

17 years and never more than 2 consecutive winning seasons. Career .542 and post season win% of .455 I'll pass.

I do find it hilarious that people keep mentioning he only had 6 winning seasons out of his 17 like its a bad thing.  Did you guys know that he only had 6 losing seasons out of 17.  Kind of shows him in a different light, no?

For a team that has averaged 5-6 wins the past 3 years, I'd gladly take that 9 win average Fisher boast for a chance at the playoffs.

I hate that kind of talk, and it happens all the time.  Ppl gladly accept resigning themselves to mediocrity just because its slightly better than what they had to deal with before.
