This is not actually a rumor, as contact isn't even alleged to have been made between the Redskins and the Titans Head Coach, though I'm interested in where reader(s) sit on this:
There has been talk that Fisher could stall negotiations with the Titans and become a free agent after the 2007 season, when several high profile teams including the Dallas Cowboys, Washington Redskins, New York Giants and Cleveland Browns could be in the market for a new coach.
I'm on record saying that it's doubtful Dan Snyder sends Coach Gibbs away prematurely, and whether Joe leaves the team has a lot to do with how this next season goes. I am not ready to presume a failed season and, consequently, a premature exit for Gibbs.
There's an additional issue with bringing in Coach Fisher to lead this team. How would Defensive Coordinator Gregg Williams react to once again coaching under Jeff Fisher? Remember that Gregg Williams started his professional coaching career with the Oilers coaching staff in 1990, later joined by Fisher in 1995.
[Incidentally, that means Coach Williams was on the bad guys' team in our 16-13 victory over the Oilers in 1991, which Ben at The Curly R has chronicled so extensively.]
First, the Redskins would owe Coach Williams 1M dollars...
Before that gets sorted out, the better question to reader(s) is whether or not Fisher is a suitable replacement, at all?
