View Full Version : Chiefs Overreaction from last night: Cut Eric Fisher after 2018

He's got an out in his extension. We'll eat some dead cap, but we should end up saving overall.

The guy is, was, and always will be a pussy. He even looks fucking tiny. The NFL LTs I've always seen dominate the game have been behmoths like John Alt, Orlando Pace, and Willie Roaf. Fisher looks like a goddamn TE out there. We were waiting after his first season to bulk up in the NFL strength and conditioning offseason program. Has that ever fucking happened? Sure as hell doesn't look like it.

He's inconsistent but mostly he just plays with zero toughness. Always has. And I'd rather not force our beautiful new QB to play behind such a limp-dicked dweeb.

How I've felt about Fisher since he's been here: at least he's not Jordan Black or Damien McIntosh?

He's better than Joeckel at least, but yea that contract is awful and honestly he could most likely be replaced without much of a problem.

I've been a Fisher apologist, but the times I specifically watched him last night, he didn't look good. Maybe once the playbook gets opened up in the regular season and we exploit things like over pursuit, teams won't be pinning their ears back and attacking him 24x7. Who knows, that's all I'm hoping for. But if the plan is pretend he's Anthony Munoz out there, somebody important is gonna get their bell rung.

I get that Fisher is underwhelming, but I'd try to slide him to guard before walking away.
I think what I'd do in use a high pick next year to address the position and prepare that way. His contract isn't crazy IMO.

I want him gone ASAP, but my only hesitation is that Morse is a free agent soon. He's not much better than Fisher IMO and isn't worth a huge contract. LG is obviously a weakness with nobody on the roster looking like they're capable of excelling there. Are we going to replace 3 OL all in the next year or so? I'd be fine if we could, but that seems like too much to do in one year without eating up a good portion of our cap room.

The OL has been average at best and just downright bad at times ever since Dorsey and Reid have come on board. They don't know how to scout and find talent on the OL. This philosophy of small athletic OL hasn't worked. Until we go to a power blocking scheme we're going to continually get dominated at the LOS.

Fisher is part of the Oline last year which allowed Smith to have a career year and Hunt to lead the league in rushing.

Fisher is absolutely here to stay.

Sure, he is nothing special though but he is decent.

If the Oline sucks this year, they'll replace everything and keep working on Defense over the offseason. Mahomes has 2-3 years easy, it's the Oline that'll run out of time if he starts getting pressured like he did last night.

With the gunslinging comes needing more time.

Mahomes didn't roll out once last night, which is when he's at his most lethal as a QB. If there were ANY QB of the Chiefs in the past 20 years who could really use a great LT, it's Mahomes. Being able to step up in the pocket AND roll out and still find guys deep down the field is what's going to turn him into an elite QB.

Would anyone be surprised if Armani Watts gets cut tho?

Yes - ONLY b/c there is a need and he was a 4th round pick. BUT, the deal with that guy is he was drafted on "potential." I saw most every game of his in college and he has talent. He makes some plays and he looks very good when he makes them. BUT, he doesn't make far too many plays that he "should" make. IF he was all that, he would have made them and would have been drafted sooner. He's the classic example of an organization thinking that they can "Coach a player better" to get him to realize his potential. He never lived up to his potential at A&M and I doubt he will at this level. So, at some point I won't be surprised if he gets cut - just don't think it's going to happen this season. Anyway, just my take on the guy.

TEX

Albert had more size to him and was far better at not letting dudes get around him. Where he struggled was on bull rushes, which is weird considering he's a former guard in college...

He'd get ground into the dirt as a guard. At least you can use finesse as a tackle and that's why he isn't all the way terrible but as a guard you gotta be a mauler or at least be able to push people around and he's far from that.

It was serviceable because Fisher was still growing. I gave him all kinds of time to learn and develop just like I will with Mahomes.

And our line from 2015-2017 didn't have Cameron fucking Erving as a starter. Just like in 2014 when we had awful as shitty fuck Mike McGlynn starting at LG, that line wasn't good enough. If Erving plays like he did last night in the regular season, HE'S not good enough and should be replaced.

And finally, fuck Alex. He was always a transition QB, even if the transition lasted longer than it should have. People were banging the fucking table for us blowing 1st round picks on LGs so that Alex would have some help. Fuck that.

No, I'm not suggesting we do that with Mahomes (at least not yet). What I AM suggesting we do is AT LEAST take Erving out of the starting lineup and put in Witzmann, who at least is better than rock bottom

I called you a moron because you have no idea how much Tom Brady does to make that OL look good in New England.

It's not just how quickly he gets the ball put.

He has incredible pocket mobility, gliding away from pressure within the pocket to buy time to make plays.

No one is better inside the pocket.

No longer in the spotlight, Eric Fisher has persevered to help the Chiefs’ explosive offense (https://theathletic.com/628781/2018/11/01/no-longer-in-the-spotlight-eric-fisher-has-persevered-to-help-the-chiefs-explosive-offense/)

Fisher, with little fanfare, is in the midst of producing the best season of his career. He has played well enough to be a candidate for his first Pro Bowl honor. In eight games, Fisher has been responsible for only one of the 10 sacks opposing defenses have recorded against Mahomes.

He has blocked the best pass rushers in the NFL and has given Mahomes enough time to break record after record each week. In the past month, Fisher has aided Hunt’s production with timely, athletic blocks on the perimeter. And he has committed just five penalties this season, the last one coming three weeks ago in the Chiefs’ lone loss to the Patriots.

“I’ve faced some adversity that a lot of people wouldn’t face in the league, just the expectation and some things that just happened over the years,” Fisher said. “If you put me in the position now that I was in then, I think it would be a much different scenario. There’s truth behind that. There’s a lot to learn in this league, whether it’s on the field or off the field.”

One of Fisher’s biggest benefits is that he has only had to learn one offensive playbook under Reid. He also moved to the left tackle position on a full-time basis in 2016 after the Chiefs signed Schwartz. By playing opposite of Schwartz, Fisher said he has learned from his teammate how to better perform his techniques when blocking.

In the Chiefs’ past two victories, Fisher has accomplished any task Reid has asked of him.

Fisher has become more comfortable in his role the longer he has played in a Chiefs uniform. He has watched Reid add skill player after skill player in the past six seasons. With each new teammate, Fisher has bonded with them through jokes. And Fisher has been satisfied with such an approach. It gives him the space to improve his performance in a quiet manner.

“I don’t have quit in me,” he said. “I’m going to do my job until I can’t do it anymore. That’s something I personally take pride in. I don’t care what you throw at me. I’m going to get back up and I’ll be right back there.”

And this from the comments was eye-opening:

2013 turned out to be such a horrible draft. All but a handful of 1st rounders are out of football or a back-up. A re-draft would probably have:
1. D Hopkins ( picked in the 20s)
2. Lane Johnson (4th overall)
3. L Bell (2nd round)
4. Kelce (3rd round)
5. Fisher

Arguably 2 in the top 5 - not bad.

Johnson also has some injury history of his own, a suspension for PEDs (IIRC) and has only ever been an effective RT.

I'd absolutely take Kelce over him and I think there's an argument that you take Fisher ahead of him. We simply don't know if Johnson can do the job on the left that Fisher has.

Fisher's a solid ballplayer and really has been since 2015. He's not a 1.1 in a normal draft but the 2013 draft was just a piece of shit - there's only so much can be done about that. At least we didn't take Joekel or Jordan or Cooper.

The guy they should have mentioned but didn't was taken several rounds later - David Bakhtiari. He's been a damn steady player for GB; as reliable as Johnson has been at a position with a higher degree of difficulty.

As a duo, they very well might.

The Chiefs have bookends they can pretty much leave on an island and know they'll get the job done 90% of the time. You can't go empty as often as we do if you don't have guys you trust at LT and RT.

Think of how often we assign those guys a lock-down role and they come through. It's a luxury that few teams have.

Helps cover for the interior, no question.

But those outside guys are doing work, man. And yes, Mahomes helps, but there's no way Reid exposes Mahomes to those rushers by having Fisher and Schwartz operate without help as often as he does if he isn't completely confident in them.

Neither guy is Munoz, to be sure - but they're both good players and having 2 guys like that to prevent teams from just rolling their rush to one side or the other gives Reid a ton of latitude.

When Reid spent most of the 2nd half of that Steelers game rolling empty formations, you knew we were onto something with these tackles. That's just not something you do with a rookie QB on the road against a defense that likes to get after QBs if you don't trust those dudes.

As is the case with everything in the league - it's all relative. But if you go down the list, you'd have a damn hard time finding bookend tackles you'd swap with ours. You'll find better individuals, but I can't think of a better pair.

Fisher and Schwartz are doing a decent job at the tackles.
Fisher will never live up to his draft position but hes a hell of a lot better than his first couple years.
And Schwartz is a solid RT.
The problem on the OLine is at center especially if Morse is done
What needs to be fixed is the D and thats where the resources must be spent.

I don't think Mahomes will ever get us to a point where we don't need to invest draft capital or cap space into ensuring we have strong tackles.

But he'll damn sure allow us to save some resources on guys up the middle. As much as I like LDT, Mahomes is making him appear to be a luxury item. We don't do much running from under center and running from the shotgun is more about group blocking and vision from the RB than it is your interior winning battles.

So in the coming years, I'd expect we'll save a fair amount of money by scrimping a bit at G and possibly C. Mahomes makes that possible.

Is Fisher worthy of being the 1st pick of the draft? No. Is he a solid left tackle who helps our team? Yes.

It's a good thing that our OT's are more reliable than the rest of our offensive line. Fisher is playing well but still has a problem with penalties. I think he's made 5 of them, false starts have to stop.

I don't understand why we are having such a problem finding decent interior offensive linemen. It would be nice to have some inside guys who could really run block.

Yeah, he's had 4 or 5. The damn false starts at home are going to drive me to drinking, that's for sure but he's not the only culprit by any stretch. And of his penalties I'm thinking only 1 has been a hold. Halfway through the season, that's pretty damn impressive.

And if my memory serves he's only given up 1 sack this year.

He's not All Pro caliber, but he's at the very least approaching Pro Bowl level. He's good. He's not great and in a perfect world he's more of a mid-teens overall pick. You get that guy at 14 you're pretty damn happy. But there's just nothing you can do when you go 1.1 for what was almost certainly the worst draft in modern NFL history.

As for the interior lineman - I mean damn, we're down 3 of them. And LDT is absolutely a pro bowl caliber player. Erving is probably about on par with what most teams have at LG. Morse is very good when healthy. I wouldn't say we're having a problem getting good interior lineman, but we're having a problem keeping them on the field for sure.

If anything, with the production the Chiefs have gotten out of late picks like LDT/Fulton, not to mention credible efforts from street FAs like Witzmann, I'd say the Chiefs have actually excelled at building an interior line. But we work from the shotgun a LOT and that's just not an easy way to run the football, especially between the tackles. Some of our struggles running inside are due to scheme. And to be honest, we're still better at that than most.

Andy Reid has always been a vocal proponent of the ol' "shell concept" so that's not shocking at all.

This team really is Andy's wet dream. Everything he's always said about team building points to this squad. Though he's changed his tune a bit from the past - he used to include edge-rusher in that shell concept theory of his but of late he's talked about how the game is moving away from edge rushers and towards interior pressure.

I'm not sure I agree with him but I hear what he's trying to say. Yeah, QBs get the ball out faster now and it's easier to scheme a good edge rusher out through quick passes. That said, now that it's easier and easier to score, you may see more teams trying to use those longer developing plays to keep pace. Now that 3-4 stops in a game will lose it for you, the short passing game leaves you a little exposed if you have a holding call or a drop.

Something has to give, right? The same guys that are saying "Bend but don't break" is the modern trend of NFL defenses are saying that offenses want to use the short passing game. Well...isn't that exactly what bend but don't break defenses WANT you to do? There has to be a 'zag' coming offensively and if it's towards more aggressive downfield passing, then the edge rushers will be as important as ever.

We also drafted an alcoholic who ended up turning himself into the best TE in football, a woman-beater who outwardly has turned into a model citizen and most dangerous WR in the game and a lazy DL who suddenly developed a motor (usually).

I mean...I think we kinda need to put the 'Because Chiefs' thing to bed for awhile. Things have gone really really well for this franchise for awhile now. So long as we have 15, I'm gonna have a hard time playing the 'woe is us' card...

Injuries are part of it. Players are worth a damn if they can't stay on the field. Jeff Allen would have solved our LG position years ago if he wasn't made of glass. We've been looking for a left guard for like 4 years?

Could be worse, we could've spent out the ass for Nate Soldier, used the 34th overall on a G and a 1st on a T recently enough that he'd still be on a rookie contract if we didn't have to cut him, and STILL have the worst OL in football.

Hell, it's easier than that.

When you're drafting at 1.1 you should probably have the best draft in football right? We didn't, but we gave 2.1 to get Smith, so that impacted it. When you really sit down and look at that draft team by team, there are 2 teams that had demonstrably better drafts than we did, IMO - Detroit (who KILLED it) and GB. Houston, Arizona, Dallas and a few others had drafts on par with ours.

But we pulled Kelce and Fisher from that draft and the bottom line is that there just wasn't a shitload better to have reasonably done there. The draft sucked. We took 2 guys from that draft who would have gone in the top 10 if the draft was re-done today - that's pretty alright. And for a draft that had NO consensus top pick, that's pretty outstanding really.

You are right. I mean, realistically, who should we have drafted instead of Fisher? There was no great QB. No offensive player really stood out. Le'Veon Bell was drafted that year, but he was in the second round. Some pundits suggested drafting Bell and playing him as a D-back. Fisher was a safe choice for a franchise that was in deep shit. He struggled initially but he and Mitch Schwartz are among the 10 best, if not 5 best, pair of tackles in the league.

Eric Reid or Tyler Eifert? Reid could have helped but I'm glad we have Kelce over Eifert and we chose Kelce 2 rounds after Eifert. D'Andre Hopkins? We had no QB to really bring out his potential and now we have Tyreek, who is definitely faster.

Fisher isn't flashy but he's solid and in the top tier of LTs in the league. Considering what was available, I don't begrudge the Fisher pick. He now does a pretty good job of protecting Mahomes.

This article ranked Fischer/Schwartz 8th best pair of bookends using ESPN's Pass Blocking Win Rate metric, which analyzes how often a tackle holds up 2.5 seconds after the snap.

http://www.espn.com/nfl/insider/story/_/id/25015727/ranking-nfl-offensive-tackle-duos-pass-blocking-nfl-2018



8. Kansas City Chiefs

Left Tackle: Eric Fisher (79 percent)
Right Tackle: Mitchell Schwartz (89 percent)

One weakness of PBWR is that it doesn't adjust for opponents. That's OK over the course of a season, but it can have a big effect in a single game. That didn't matter for Schwartz against the Broncos earlier this season, when he posted a 96 percent PBWR in a game in which he mostly squared off against Von Miller.

After seeing how Cam Erving has played for us and how Cable going from Seattle to Oakland dramatically changed how both teams o-lines play, I wonder how much of it all is coaching. Would Erick Flowers be as bad on another with good coaching? I think of all positions O-line is the most coachable and where technique overrules raw talent most times. If you have a coach that can't properly teach technique, even talented players are going to look like shit.

But then again, Cam came from the browns and the one good coach they do have is the O-line coach so who knows.

No shit. He's getting beat like a rented mule out there. To be fair though, Chandler Jones is a beast.

The play calling was garbage today though. Too many slow developing plays and a little cuteness was added into it.


That'd make any O-Lineman look bad, especially going against Chandler Jones.

How many carries did KHunt have today?

And what was his YPC?

Fisher didn’t look good today, BUT in all fairness, he was going up against one of the best pass rushers in the league in Jones.

It was a crappy game today for Fisher. He has been good this season though. I don't want to extend him but there's no reason to freak out about today's game. I still don't understand why Andy Reid can't anticipate problems with certain pass rushers and give Fisher some help. All he really needed today was a chip from an RB to slow Jones down a step. Our offensive genius seems incapable of provided help without completely gutting his offense.

Almost all of Reid's plays are slow developing. He is so busy trying to prove how smart he is that he just can't run the basics.

Maybe we went vanilla today because of who we are playing next week? After I say that, why the fuck did we have Hill return kicks against the Rams? I hate seeing him returning kicks. This isn’t Madden and he is our #1 receiver.

Why are you being a buttfucking moron you Smith-loving taint sniffer?

Andy Reid's play designs are fucking genious and the only reason your turd burglar checkdown pissant ever had a year above average in this league.

The Cards overloaded the line the entire game. There wasn't anyone to help and the backs did help some.

They didn't help him much.

We didn't we make them pay for overloading the line so often? If we did it offenses would destroy us.

This team is fighting for HFA and it's week 10 of the season with the Chargers, Pats, Steelers all nipping at the Chiefs heels.

Being vanilla is simply out of the question.

Playcalling and execution was bad in the 2nd half, and to make matters worse, Fisher was being beaten like a rented mule.

Glad we won...but AZ is a BAD team..and say what you want about what Rosen "can" be some day...right now he sucks ass and looks like an overmatched rookie. This game should have been won in a more convincing fashion. But a W is a W in a league where teams can win any given Sunday, so I'll take it.

I just don't like Fisher..never did. I think he's kind of a pussy for an OL to be honest. Maybe it's his doughy babyface church choir looking demeanor I dunno....I just hope he's not having night terrors of Rams DL in his sleep like he James Harrison..because if so, he's already lost that battle and he hasn't even stepped on the plane yet.

They have played about 3 bad halves of football all season. It happens, there isn't a team that hasn't played more bad halves of football.

People forget AZ is one of the best defenses we have played, they are better than Denver and LA. They are the #1 pass defense 10 weeks in.

The other side gets paid too.

You could make the argument that they are the #1 pass defense because teams don't need to throw on them.

They are ranked 31st against the run.

You'd think Hunt would get more than 16 carries.

Yeah I didn't understand the reluctance to keep giving the ball to Hunt. He was doing great except for the stupid sideways calls. 3 of the sacks though were on Mahomes. Probably the best pass rush we've seen all season overall.

That he did.

That's what keeps him from being great, I guess. He got his shit pushed in today and for ther most part wasn't even competitive. As bad as he's been since his rookie year.

Reiter got his ass kicked a bit as well. Ugly day by the OL all around.

It probably does.

Their offense is averaging only 13.8 points per game. That is absolutely horrid.

Opposing teams really don't have much reason to air it out beyond the first half.

Other than he won't face them two actually, at least not on most downs, that will be Erving, Reiter, Wylie. That should give Mahomes the warm and fuzzies.
