A lot lately has been made of Jeff Fisher and his decision to bench VY. That has spurred many debate on if Fisher is a good coach. Some has come down to winning percentage and the fact he does not have a superbowl ring.
I have always stood by that Fisher does MORE with less than anyone in the league. In an attempt to prove this I’ve decided to look at all the superbowl winning rosters since Fisher has become coach in 1994.
1994 - Dallas Cowboys
Aikman, Smith, Irvin, Moose, etc
1995 – San Francisco 49ers
Young, Rice, Norton, Harris
1996 – Dallas Cowboys
1997 – Green Bay packers
Farve, white, Chmura, brooks, Freeman, howard
1998 – Denver Broncos
Elway, Davis, McCaffery, Zimmerman, Smith, Sharpe, ect
1999 – Denver Broncos
2000 – St. Louis Rams
Bruce, Faulk, Warner, holt, carter – a LB in the wrong spot but got lucky
2001 – Baltimore Ravens
Lewis, McAlister, McCrary, Ogden, this team was about Defense obviously
2002 – New England Patriots
Brady, Branch, Brown, Law, ect
2003 – Tampa Bay Buc’s
Alstott, Barber, brooks, Jackson, Johnson, Lynch. Another team about defense
2004 – New England Patriots
2005 – New England Patriots
2006 – Pittsburg Steelers
Bettis, Big Ben, Ward,
2007 – Indy Colts
Manning, Wayne, Harrison, Clark
2008 – New York Giants
Manning, Tuck, strahan
2009 – Pittsburg Steelers
2010 – New Orleans Saints
Bree’s, Colston, Sharper, shockey
The one thing all these teams have in common except maybe 2 (ravens, buc’s) they have HOF QB’s or potential HOF QB’s. Rosters on the earlier team’s are loaded with HOF’ers
As much as I love Wycheck, Mason, Rolle, Roberston, McNair, Kearse and so forth. I’m not sure how many will end up as HOF’ers. George would be to me, McNair is probably on the outside looking in even though I would take him as my QB over many of the superbowl winners.
I’m not the best at writing post here, but the one thing I ask everyone to think about is the past rosters that Fisher has had to work with and tell me, was 8-8 seasons failures?
Think of Fisher with the early Cowboys roster. And then think Chan Gailey won a superbowl with them, would you say Gailey is a better coach than fisher because of his superbowl?
If we don't have Fisher then who do we get and what do we get?
