Eric Clapton and his band mates from Cream once wrote a song called Crossroads, it’s a classic rock and roll song that will live on for years to come and it is also the current status of the Miami Dolphins.
Whether it's false reporting from fans, big time national media reporters or people straight up just not knowing the bottom line is as Thursday night ends both the Dolphins and Rams are still awaiting Jeff Fishers decision. While there are many factors that will play into Fishers decision the fact is that it will have a major impact on the Phins.
Friday the 13th might have serious implications on the future direction of this franchise. The path led by the moustache man seems quite simple as Schefter reported Fisher is a big Ireland fan, so I would expect that they would work together in making personnel decisions.
Fisher has been a part of rebuilds and I assume wants no part of that in Miami and would make it a priority to first find his QB and second bring in pieces through the draft and free agency to help build a winner quickly in Miami. Fisher probably realizes that he would have more resources in Miami then he did with the Titans.
I expect things to move very quickly if Fisher does in fact come to Miami and it is already rumoured that he has a potential staff step up. Mini Shotty and Greg Williams are two names that have been linked to Fisher. It would seem that Fisher is committed and committed now which is refreshing for a Dolphins fan that is accustom to mediocrity.
Now the big question is what happens if Fisher decides to coach the Rams?
There is the wait and see on Joe Philbin approach which is enticing due to his success with the Packer offence and the potential of Matt Flynn being brought in but there are also questions of what type of staff he would form and his lack of head coaching experience.
Then there is the Mike Zimmer option, my personal plan B as I have previously blogged however there is also the worry that this team needs to be focused on the offensive side on the ball which is not Zimmer’s expertise.
We can’t forget the Chud coaching option everyone’s favourite Little Giant’s fan. Chud is probably the hottest coordinator in the league this year after the work he did with Sir Cam Newton.
Whatever will happen on Friday the 13th or over this weekend or dare I should say a little long will have a great impact on the future of this organization so here’s to hoping were heading into the right
