All throughout his career until retirement, Fischer had played in 213 NFL games, as well as a record for a cornerback. Fisher is skilled and has strong tackling skills even though he has a minuscule size for a sports athlete. Defensive match-ups in opposition to Harold Carmichael of the Philadelphia Eagles receiver was a great display of his strengths in tackling, knowing that the opponent stood eleven inches taller than him. Until now, Fisher is known for his quotable mantra "get a leg up and you own him". Today, coaches and trainers used this to encourage and help smaller defensive backs in defending taller receivers.
