Jeff Fisher: Pulling a Mike D'Antoni


A few years back Mike D'Antoni was basically allowed to choose between his coaching job of the Chicago Bulls and New York Knicks. He ended up picking the Knicks for a variety of reasons but it ended up backfiring on him in a way because just a few weeks after he took the New York job the Bulls moved up big time in the draft lottery from something like 8th to 1st and were able to select Derrick Rose who was the point guard D'Antoni so coveted. It's obviously speculation but I believe D'Antoni privately would have taken the Bulls job if he had just waited a few weeks.

Fast forward to this summer and Jeff Fisher takes charge of the Rams rather than the Dolphins. For his personal reasons it was a logical choice. But, now the Colts job is open with the best quarterback prospect in years looking like he'll be a Colt. And now the Indianapolis job is open. I'm not here saying the Colts would have hired Fisher and given him the GM title as well like he wanted. And sure, they hired some new GM already anyways. But, did Fisher rush his decision instead of waiting a week to see if Indianapolis would have given him a look?

I personally think that if Indy would have given him the things he was seeking then it definitely is a more desirable choice. I believe he's full steam ahead with St. Louis currently but if the Colts one had opened up just a few days early he wouldn't actually have moved to Missouri.

Will Andrew Luck make Jeff Fisher regret not waiting another week?
