Jeff Fisher is in his 4th season as the head coach of the Rams. Between St. Louis and Los Angeles, the team is 27-37-1 since Fisher took over in 2012. The team has yet to win more than 7 games in a season. As for Fisher personally, he hasn’t coached a team to a .500 record since 2009, been to the playoffs since 2008, or won a playoff game since 2003. Still, the talk around the league is that the Rams are going to give him a 3-year extension.
On Tuesday, the morning after the 49ers beat Fisher’s Rams 28-0, John Clayton mentioned the possibility of the Rams burying the news in a press release for a contract extension for defensive lineman Michael Brockers. On Wednesday, Bleacher Report’s Jason Cole said sources had gone quiet on the extension as it might be hard to “sell the extension to the fan base” after the season-opening loss.
So presumably, the Rams will eventually score some points and the organization will be able to announce an extension for their very unsuccessful coach. Or maybe they’ll think better of it now that Keyshawn Johnson claimed that Fisher was forced to draft Jared Goff. Goff, of course, watched the first game of the season in street clothes.
Basically, the Rams return to Los Angeles has been a complete disaster. Maybe if the team never scores, they’ll never give Fisher an extension and we’ll just never hear from him, Goff, or the team again. I wonder if anyone would notice.
