What i mean is when fisher was coaching he was in one of the toughest divisions. now that the division isn't the greatest, do you expect fisher to give this team an afc approach to play with the same intensity they did when he coached those playoff Titan teams?

Why wouldnt he? Every coach has their philosophy and tactics to acheive the best possible record. Just because he is in the NFC now doesnt change that and while our division isnt the greatest, its still the NFL and every game needs immense preparation and game planning in order to not embarass yourself let alone win.

Every coach starts with the goal to win their division and everything else will fall into place. Fish wont be concerned with the AFC now, just as he wasnt concerned about the NFC back then. Im sure some specifics have been changed here and there to fit with the blue and gold along with things he has learned perhaps but overall he has been doing what he does for a long time and had success so I doubt he will be reinventing himself just because he is now in the NFC.

Well, if you really want to take that approach, you would have to look at it this way:

It wasn't an "AFC" approach, it was "let's try to beat the Colts" approach. Every team in the AFC South had that approach, which was bringing Manning down. I personally don't feel Fisher will bring that same mindset at all. If there is anything this division is showing, it's defenses with lots of talent. Therefore, Fisher's approach should be planning around how to move the chains and exploiting some of the lesser aspects of these defenses. If he brings this practical mentality to the team, I'm sure they will do just fine, because it is something that the last two coaches have overlooked and instead focused on how to simply mold their teams.

Ditto. I think Fish will evolve as this division becomes more of a ground and pound smash mouth style division.

i think he will put us in better positions to win games, there really hasnt been a coach we had that could do that since martz and everyone figured his system out pretty quickly.

So it's pretty much the Spags/Shurmur approach? Please tell me that all of the route run by the WRs are short of the first down marker...then it's exactly like the Spags/Shurmur approach.

Even still, that's better than the McDaniels approach of:
Sack, Sack, Run, Punt

He's a puppet of Mike Holmgren. Our offense will be taking the Schotty approach (no not a shotgun happy offense). Run the ball properly to open the passing game.

I always love watching Shurmur on the sideline. Both in STL and Cleveland. He always has the same look on his face. It's a look of disappointment, confusion and helplessness. Just so funny.


It's like the many faces of Jim Caldwell:

And yet, he did a pretty good job developing Bradford.

I'm not sure if this is sarcasm or not.

I expect:

-A much more constant and better defense than we have had.
-Big improvement in tackling.
-More focus on the running game.
-Less focus on the WR and TE positions

For the last point though, it's not much different than what we've done lately. Just an offense that correlates it.
