Default Bill Simmons says Jeff Fisher sucks

http://sports.espn.go.com/espn/page2...flpicks/091031

Jags (+3) over TITANS
"Hey Vince? It's Jeff Fisher. I have some good news. You're starting this Sunday. Look, I don't want you to think we're doing this because we're 0-6, or that we waited this long because we don't believe in you, or because our owner ordered me to do it. Please don't think that. The truth is, the reason I'm doing this is because I thought it would deflect attention from the fact that I've only had six winning seasons in 16 years -- but everyone still seems to think I'm a really good coach and none of this is my fault. You know why they believe in me? It's my facial hair. My facial hair makes it look like I know what I'm doing. Anyway, I don't want people to start questioning my credentials, I'd rather have them write about you. That's why you're getting the nod. Really, there's no other reason. You haven't even looked that good in practice. I'm doing this for me. Good luck."

Jeff Fisher is not a great coach. But a coach doesn't go from getting tons of credit for a 13-3 season to sucking in one year. Coaches don't forget how to coach in such a short period of time. But pretty much anytime a team underperforms, people start piling on the coach, when it's mostly the players.

To put it in another perspective look at other coaches and their W/L records. Form your own conclusions.

Jeff Fisher: 6 winning seasons in 16 years or a winning record 37.5% of the time.

Jon Gruden: 6 winning seasons in 11 years or a winning record 54.5% of the time.

Bill Belichick: 9 winning seasons in 15 years or a winning record 60.0% of the time.

Mike Shanahan: 9 winning seasons in 15 years or a winning record 60.0% of the time.

Bill Cowher: 11 winning seasons in 15 years or a winning record of 73.3% of the time.

Mike Holgrim:14 winning seasons in 17 years or a winning record 82.4% of the tiime.

Tony Dungy: 11 winning seasons in 13 seasons or a winning record 84.6% of the time

Wow! That certainly puts things in perspective. I still think Fisher is a good coach, but I don't know that he is a great coach. 6 winning seasons in 16 years is not very impressive.
