Jeff Fisher not worried about job status with Rams
At 3-5, the Rams are looking at a fifth straight year under Fisher with a sub-.500 record. The last time they won eight games was 2006, and the last time they had a winning record was 2003.
Fisher’s done just enough to hold on to his position, but the groans and boos in Los Angeles are mounting.
Not that Fisher is worried about his job security. From ESPN’s Alden Gonzalez:
“I’m not uncomfortable at all,” Fisher said when asked about his future Monday. “I’m uncomfortable because I didn’t expect to be 3-and-whatever we are, but I’m not uncomfortable at all. I never look over my shoulder. We’re moving on.”
There were reports that Fisher was nearing an extension early this season, but that talk has quieted. There haven’t been any reports about Fisher’s coaching job being in danger, but Rams fans in L.A. have voiced their displeasure, both online and at the games.
Their offense is stagnant, and has been throughout Fisher’s tenure. Over the last four years, L.A. (then St. Louis) finished in the bottom five in yards per game.
However, Fisher remains adamant that he still sees eye-to-eye with his boss:
“Stan [Kroenke] and I are on the same page,” said Fisher, who has guided teams to a winning record in only six of his 20 seasons as an NFL head coach. “He understands what we’ve been through. He’s as disappointed as I am at the losses — two three-points and a seven-point in the last three games. He understands that we’re competitive and we’re doing everything we possibly can to get this turned around.”
