Kravitz dropped a bombshell during an intriguing 15-minute chat. Kravitz believes that the Colts, who continue to employ Jim Caldwell as the head coach but neither Vice Chairman Bill Polian or G.M. Chris Polian, already have reached out to Jeff Fisher. Kravitz also thinks that Fisher would then have input on who the next G.M. would be, creating a package deal.
Bob clarified this later on Twitter:
And if I misspoke, that's on me, but to set the record straight, I don't know if they've talked to Fisher. Guessing they did but don't know
I THINK THERE IS A LOT TO WHAT BOB SAID , BUT I THINK HE LET THE CAT OUT TO EARLY ON THIS...............
FISHER HAS A LOT OF RESPECT FOR PM AND WILL WORK WELL WITH HIM IF HE'S HEALTHY. I STILL WANT MY CAKE AND EAT IT TO ,THE NFL IS ALL ABOUT THE QB'S I LOVE PM BUT HE COMING OFF A MAJOR NECK
SURGERY AND YOU CAN'T PASS ON THIS GUY RIGHT NOW, IF PEYTON DID NOT GO DOWN THIS TALK IS ALL MOOT...................THINK ABOUT IT............................................
@jbuck41 Could be right. The general view his fans seem to offer is that Fisher's years in Tennessee were severely hampered by owner Bud Adams.
Remember that Fisher is largely a defensive-minded coach from the Walsh/Seifert tree. He likes to use a ball-control offense and a 4-3 defensive scheme. Offensively he'll need to either keep the staff or change his approach to jive with the Air Coryell/vertical passing offense. His 4-3 is really well-suited for Indy as he employs cover 2 frequently.
Big question for Fisher is his ability to adjust offensively.
