Yesterday Adam Schefter put out there that Jeff Fisher is not engaged in a leverage battle. Schefter said that neither team had made an offer to Fisher. That was clearly a ludicrous (LUDA!) statement.
For some reason the media just loves Fisher. I never really understood it because he never told them the truth, but Schefter is clearly in love with Fisher. Just look at the statement Schefter made on radio station this morning while insisting that Fisher is not playing a leverage game (via PFT):
"Jeff Fisher is trying to make sure that the situation is exactly the way that he wants it," Schefter said. "OK, that the organization lays out the travel, the trainers, the chiropractors, the budgets, the payrolls. I mean, there’s a lot that goes into this, OK? And he’s trying to sew this up with both sides."
I agree with what August said last, I cannot understand why these owners have not made a final offer to Fisher and told him to take it or leave it. Both teams are acting like they are getting Vince Lombardi. It is going to be a sad day for them when they are 8-8 for three straight years.
As I said on Twitter a few minutes ago, I thought that time away might make Fisher step back and realize where things went wrong here, but apparently all it has done is make him even more egotistical than he already was. I did not know that was possible.
