You have heard that Los Angeles Rams head coach Jeff Fisher received a contract extension early Sunday morning. (two years $16 million to be exact) If you were confused about this you weren’t the only one. Somehow coach Fisher has been able to consistently trick the NFL into paying him time and time again. In a league were coaches get fired like there was a sale for them, Fisher has been able to skate on by punishment free even though he is currently on pace for his 5th straight losing season.
All rappers and trappers need to take note on how coach Fisher has become the finesser of the decade.
Lack of Success
It comes as no surprise that Jeff Fisher has had troubles consistently winning football games. (Once more 5 straight losing seasons) But if you look even further back in his career you would be amazed he is still a sought after coach. He has been a head coach in the NFL since 1994 and yet has only made the playoffs 6 times (Yes I did say 6) in that 22 year span, 1 Super Bowl appearance back when people still used pagers, (1999) Not to mention only 2 playoff appearances since the 2003 season (Hasn’t made it back since 08).
I know it seems like all I am doing is roasting him. But facts are facts, and the fact of the matter is, he is just not good at his job.
Lack of Development
What has really had folks baffled by the Rams decision to extend coach is his incompetence when it comes to developing any offensive member of his teams, this is especially true when it comes to the leagues most valuable position. The Quarterback.
Since he has joined the Rams in 2012 coach Fisher has managed to start 8 different QB’s, with none of them having much individual or team success. Don’t get me wrong some were not his fault (Sam Bradford) who was constantly injured every season. However when you have 8 QB’s starting throughout a 5 year playoff drought you are bordering on Cleveland Browns levels. Especially when two of them (Sam Bradford, Nick Foles) were hot commodities at the time, you are doing something wrong.
What makes it all worse is that the 3 assistant coaches that have gotten head coaching jobs off of being on his staff have a combined 52-84 record as coaches shows that even his development of coaches has been sub-par.
This is not just my opinion on the matter, when fans, analyst & even former players are wondering aloud if coach Fisher has something on someone in the league/organization, we can’t all be wrong. Whether it’s legendary Running back Eric Dickerson, or Los Angeles native Snoop Dogg voicing their opinions, it’s clearly obvious nobody outside of the Rams organization believes bringing Fisher back is a smart decision. In an profanity laced Instagram rant Snoop put it plainly what most fans believe when it comes to coach Fisher “he needs to go, he hasn’t won anything in 22 years & there’s 0 reason to believe he will anytime soon.
Everyone that plans on doing the bare minimum in life needs to grab a pen, notepad & take notes from Jeff Fisher on how to be mediocre at your job & still be rewarded handsomely. Coach Fisher you are the ultimate thief, you’d make Aladdin proud.
