    A few excerpts From the AP:

    "The Rams fired their coach on Monday. Special teams coordinator John Fassel will serve as interim coach. The Rams are at Seattle on Thursday night.....

    Fisher was the team's coach since 2012, and compiled a 31-45-1 record with the Rams. He oversaw the move from St. Louis to Los Angeles this past offseason.....

    "Making a decision such as this, especially during the season, is one of the most difficult in sports," Rams owner Stan Kroenke said....

    Long respected in league circles for his work on the NFL's competition committee, Fisher never found success -- or a franchise quarterback -- with the Rams, who went 7-8-1, 7-9, 6-10 and 7-9 in his four full seasons.....

    Kroenke said in his statement that "this is the right time to make a change as our performance has not lived up to my or our fans' expectations.....

    Oddly, Kroenke gave Fisher a contract extension before the season, though it was not made public until recently."

    I don't have a problem with Fisher but he has 6 winning seasons in 22 years as a head coach. He is the definition of mediocrity.

    I bet VY is saying "karma is a ***** huh Fisher" I don't know who is a bigger pr#*K, Fisher or Briles? Both had it coming and got it. Fisher hated VY from the first day. Merry Christmas to all.:thumbup:

    Could've been different if he would've let Vince be Vince. Worked for Mack....

    Vince always had a ceiling unless he grew into a more polished QB. Fisher's methods are certainly questionable but he was trying to turn him into a QB that would be in the league 20 years rather than 5-7.

    Throttling down the Ferrari to run like daddy's chevrolet so you can keep it longer kind of defeats the purpose..

    • Name-calling is not cool, don’t do it.
    So why don't you have a problem with him?

    How about this tidbit:
    There was the 165 career defeats, tying Dan Reeves for an NFL record

    I'm not so sure about the ceiling part but given more experience, he would've become as you say, a more polished QB. However, I guess we'll never know.

    Vince had some maturity issues, but he would not have been the first 22 year old QB to have maturity issues and Fisher could have helped. Instead, Fisher was determined to see him fail, and pushed all the right buttons to make it happen. Total POS.
    I guess going 0-5 with your QB, Kerry Collins, and then being forced to start the owner's QB and then making the play-offs was too much humiliation for an ******* like Fisher to take.

    If he let's VY be VY, it might have been a shorter lifespan in the NFL, but Fisher would have more than six winning seasons on his resume...

    This. Fisher was on record telling Adams not to draft VY.

    After 22 years, it seems like some NFL teams are catching on to what the rest of the world has known all along about Jeff Fisher:

    http://www.sbnation.com/2016/12/4/13806136/jeff-fisher-fired-rams-contract-extension-7-and-9-excuses

    "He’s coached 22 years with only six winning seasons and two losses away from having more than any other head coach in NFL history.When a nuclear explosion rids the world of humanity, there will only be Jeff Fisher organizing a group of 53 cockroaches into a 7-9 insect football team.

    How does he do it? How did he hold a job for so long in the NFL?"

    LOL. Dude is a ****-bird.

    Oh the irony... Guess who Fisher's winningest QB has ever been?


    With the exception of Bucky Richardson and Neil ODonnel, who totaled 9 starts for the man, its VY, with a .638 winning percentage.
    Even Steve McNair could barely be mediocre under JF with a .580 winning percentage.
    The man exudes mediocrity so bad, I think his problem may be that he allergic to winning.

    Fisher lost his chance to win the super bowl when he decided to give up on VY. Hasn't been close since VY.

    Yep, VY may have been the only antidote to his suckage, and he hated him for it.

    I would think that mediocrity would be 11 winning seasons and 11 losing season. That would be a .500 coach, which sounds pretty mediocre.
    To me, Fisher gives mediocrity a bad name. :hookem2: :cowrose:

    Six winning seasons in 22 years isn't mediocrity, it's ....pathetic. Maybe "he" should be the new Secretary of State because apparently he is one heck of a negotiator.

    So basically, without McNair and VY he's a sub-.500 coach.

    Their management is still dysfunctional and incompetent. Firing a guy right after giving him a 2-year contract extension is just more proof of that.

    All this hatred over the way VY was treated, yet no mention of Norm Chow?

    Fisher is a hack. Fisher's W-L % without Vince is 49%? Vince's W-L% was 64% in 47 starts for Tenn.

    Fisher doesn't know the first thing about quarterbacks and barely more about head coaching and defense.
