Colts President Bill Polian runs a class organization in Indianapolis. Fisher and Polian have served together on the NFL Competition Committee for a long time, and the two have been division rivals for some time. However, Polian had some really nice things to say about the Titans head coach earlier today.
“I’m not going to tell anybody else how to run their business. All I can tell you is, there are very few guys in this league that I respect more than Jeff Fisher, both as a colleague on the competition committee and a leader in this league, and most importantly as a coach on the field.
“You measure coaches by how their teams play when there is nothing at stake. And there was nothing at stake for those guys [Sunday]. They were prepared flawlessly, basically they played flawlessly except for the one fumble. They had a great plan on both side of the ball and they executed that plan and, as a result, the game went 60 minutes.
“I didn’t expect anything less because I know what Jeff Fisher is all about. He’s a great competitor, he’s a great coach, he’s got a great coaching staff and they did a heck of a job.
“I have a world of respect for him.”
If Polian has that sort of respect for Fisher, he is a guy that I would love to have as my head coach.
