Jeff Fisher could be coaching for his job with Rams
Jeff Fisher’s St. Louis Rams are currently two games out of a playoff spot, with games against the Cincinnati Bengals and Arizona Cardinals on deck.
The way it looks now, Fisher will be 0-for-4 in attempts to reach the postseason as coach of the Rams. Including his last two years with the Titans, that would be six straight seasons for him as a coach without a trip to the playoffs.
And before anyone gives Fisher an out by saying he hasn’t had a decent quarterback, sources said he was the one who pushed the Nick Foles trade to completion back in the spring. When he got back from a competition-committee meeting and learned the trade has stalled, he leaned on his staff to get it done.
Fisher has one year left on his contract. The future of the Rams’ franchise is obviously uncertain — as his tenure with the team should be.
