Eric Fisher: It’s gut-wrenching to miss Super Bowl

Buccaneers edge rusher Jason Pierre-Paul was not familiar with Mike Remmers‘ name when he spoke to reporters on Monday, but he’ll be seeing him in the Super Bowl.

Remmers has been filling in for Mitchell Schwartz at right tackle, but is set to start at left tackle after Eric Fisher tore his Achilles in the AFC Championship Game. Fisher started 15 games in the regular season and was voted into the Pro Bowl, so it’s a blow for the Chiefs.

Fisher wrote a message on Facebook discussing how big of a blow it is for him as well.

“To not be able to play in the Super Bowl after such an amazing season is gut-wrenching,” Fisher wrote. “While that may be, I can’t wait to be out there cheering my guys on to be back-to-back World Champs. Thank you to everyone for all the prayers and well wishes. I am grateful for all of the support!”

With Schwartz still out, the Chiefs will be playing Andrew Wylie at right tackle and Stefan Wisniewski at right guard. How their rejiggered offensive line holds up against the Buccaneers front will be a significant factor in how things play out on Sunday.

  1. I hope Devin White can break through or around the line and get a few sacks and a lot of QB pressure since their are lots of injuries on the Chief’s line.

    I sorry that Eric Fischer is hurt but I’m glad to see he finally became a great lineman. He struggled early in his career. I was a big fan of his coming out of college.

    Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Hill and Kelce = scary. The Bucs have great receivers too. I hope Fournette does a good job running and receiving = keep the ball away from the Chiefs offense as much as possible.

  2. It’s good to see that Mike Remmers was able to shake off that 2 year stint in Minnesota.
    It’s very difficult to remove the wretched stench of losing that permeates that organization and now he’s come out on top, a winner and possible Super Bowl Champion.
    What a great story. Rags to riches.

  3. Fisher started 15 games in the regular season and was voted into the Pro Bowl, so it’s a blow for the Chiefs.

    2 questions:

    #1) how do you get voted into a game they aren’t even playing?

    #2) does it really matter?

  4. One thing about the Pro-Bowl that they won’t play, the viewership numbers won’t be down very much at all from any other year, I don’t know a single person that even watches the Pro-Bowl anymore, it’s become the J-O-K-E of the NFL! Glorified two hand touch football.
