    Yes I do Peter, thanks for asking. Repost:

    I'm not giving Fisher a reprieve for 2 wins either. He still needs to go no matter how we finish. New blood is needed in every aspect of the coaching staff, aside from Washburn but even then..

    I hope people don't forget what we went through, and what we'll most likely go through again if Fisher is still here after this season considering the mess that this offseason will bring.

    I'll also remind folks that 99.9 of Bengals fans, myself included, wanted Marvin Lewis' head on a stick just two months ago.
    Glad they don't the fans make that call.

    You can't say Lewis is even that good to begin with can you? ... like really?

    I cant say I agree or disagree with this statement, but Marvin Lewis is a likable guy. Whereas anyone who likes Jeff Fisher only does so because they were told to. I can enjoy a few Bengals wins for Marvin, he works hard and simply drafted an injury prone player to build around. Now with Palmer healthy your seeing Marvin Lewis do what he was hired to do.

    Here's an idea; how about we swap coaches with the Bengals. To me their recent record over the years doesn't truly reflect their head coach.

    I like Fisher and his style of old school smash mouth football but I'm still up in the air about if we should get rid of him or not. I'd hate to end up worse off with an unproven commodity (I know we might be able to get a Shanahan or Cower but I'm not sure Bud would foot the bill for someone like that) but on the other hand it's been 15 years and he just can't seem to get over the hump. A shakeup seems to be working for Denver so who knows?

    Think about it though, it took Bill Cower 14 Years before he won a SB too. He went once 3 years after taking the coaching job but didn't actually win one till 2006. Coincidentally right after finally finding a franchise QB. Similar style of football, similar record and success but Cower didn't get "over the hump" either until they got a franchise QB. Could we be chasing off a future "Cower"? Who knows.

    Yes, I still think Fisher needs to go after this season. And judging by the body language at the end of the game between Dinger and Fisher, I am even more loathe to give credit to Jeff. They shared a very icy victory handshake. Meanwhile, Chuck Cecil got a hug. I got the feeling that Heimerdinger is on Fisher's "You Betrayed Me" list of co-workers. I'm kind of willing to keep Heimerdinger for consistency's sake if he can keep this kind of playcalling up. But not Fisher.

    It's not that I think Fisher is pissed at winning per se. But I do feel he's certainly pissed that it's not happening with both of his knuckles tight white on the reigns.

    I guarantee that if Fisher is left in charge at the end of the season, he will fire Mike Heimerdinger, and of course keep Chuck Cecil.

    Couple of more wins like this, I'm going to start the "Promote Mike Heimerdinger" bandwagon.

    I think it's all going to come down to Vince Young/ Mike Heimerdinger vs. Jeff Fisher.

    Yeah. And Jeff Fisher doesn't have an ego problem, either. And Gregg Williams is his best friend in the league after Mike Shannahan. What happened there? Don't believe me? Go back and rewatch the end of the game.

    Oh, and, watch your tone. It's not called for. Go find a better way to disagree.
