well Fisher did meet the requirement of a experienced and fairly successful HC who could bring a decent staff and might generate some fan excitement.  Very odd indeed that there were no talks between Fisher and the Bucs.



The discipline problems might have scared them off.   Pacman, Albert.

\\\\\\\"Java, do you understand this a perfect example of why people beg me to suspend or ban you on a daily basis? Are you actually trying to make a point? Seriously what is the reason for even commenting. In fact why do you even bother coming to the boards? What happened to the intelligent poster from years ago?  A real shame. Like the Bucs yesterday, a wasted effort.\\\\\\\"

does anyone here really think Sherman is a better coach than Fisher?  Yet we were willing to talk with one and not the other.

I don't want either. Having said that, me thinks Fisher would want more control than what Sherman would accept. What in his resume would make him worthy of that is beyond me.

 I thought Lovie said he wanted quickness & speed, even at the QB position?

what should he have done differently?  Pacman was off the team despite being a top 10 pick 2 or 3 years earlier and Haynesworth didn't have any other issues.  In fact he went on to become DPOTY afterwards.

Don't know,  but perhaps he had/has a reputation on running a loose locker room.  The last thing the Bucs need right now.

Yep. Glazers were not interested in paying that kind of salary and Fisher's agent knew it. So neither side wasted their time.

That's the scenario that makes the most sense.

It's not just the money, although that may be part of it. It's the fact that both the Rams and the Dolphins are willing to start from scratch, and the Bucs are not. The fact that the only people held accountable for the record and the roster that posted this horrible season were the coaches certainly doesn't send a great message to potential coaches, at least not ones with other options, like Fisher. The fact that Dominick, Hickey, and their staff have been around this team for years, played a major role in the failure, yet continue to draw a paycheck makes this team look as though they are not all in for a complete change in the culture.

Well said, CBW.

Leaguewide, the Bucs don't voluntarily compete on most organizational levels.

This is the meat and potatoes that good organizations are made of.

It is also one of the more clear indictments of this regime.

And the fans... The fans all think they're negligent at this point, season tickets dropping...

How do the Glazers find themselves in this mess?





It is a new day in TAMPA BAY!    GO BUCS!!
