Jeff Fisher Reflects On Spat With Eric Dickerson


WILL LAST MONDAY THE RAMS FIRED HEAD COACH JEFF FISHER. THE FORMER COACHES SPEAKING UP AND I SAT DOWN WITH TISSUE THIS AFTERNOON AFTERNOON TO SEE WHERE THINGS WENT WRONG. MANY POINTED AT HIS FEUD WITH HALL OF FAME RUNNING BACK ERIC DICKERSON IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END FOR HIM WITH THE RAMS. TODAY FISCHER FISHER GAVE ME HIS SIDE OF THE STORY. YOU REMEMBER WHEN WE CAME OUT OF PRACTICE AGAINST THE COWBOYS TWO YEARS AGO. WE HAD A WALK-THROUGH AT THE CHRISTIAN HIGH SCHOOL AND I HAD ERIC OUT THERE. I GAVE ERIC A CARRY. I WALKED INTO THE OFFENSIVE HUDDLE AND I SAID DO YOU WANT TO BLOCK ONE MORE TIME FOR ERIC DICKERSON AND THEY WERE GOING. I GOT A HANDWRITTEN NOTE OF APPRECIATION. I ESTABLISH THAT RELATIONSHIP AND I WAS CONCERNED THAT BECAUSE OF ERIC’S CRITICISM OF THE CLUB OR THE PLAYERS ARE THE COACHES AND ME OR WHATEVER THAT I DIDN’T WANTED TO GO-GO SIDEWAYS. I WANTED HIM TO BE PART SO WE HAVE A LITTLE CONVERSATION. I DON’T KNOW WHERE WENT WRONG FROM HIS STANDPOINT BUT YOU KNOW MY HOPE IS THAT HE WILL BE THAT GUY THAT WILL HAVE AN INFLUENCE ON OUR YOUNGER PLAYERS. HAVE YOU LOST SLEEP WONDERING WHERE IT WENT WRONG? I HAVE NORTON REDS WHATSOEVER. I LOVE THE CITY. I WAS BORN AND RAISED HERE. I’M A TROJAN, YOU KNOW AND AT THIS POINT RIGHT FORWARD TO THE NEXT JOURNEY AND I WILL SEE WHAT THAT IS. IS THERE A OR A SAYING THAT YOU GO BY THAT GETS YOU THROUGH DIFFICULT TIMES LIKE THIS?

  1. I don't want to hate on Fisher, in many ways, he did the Rams a solid with the drafting but at some point he lost the locker room and the inspiration of his players.
    Even Vermeil had won a Super Bowl with a back up QB in less time and in 5 years, Fisher seemed to be getting NOWHERE.
    In the HBO special, I noticed that he failed to INCLUDE himself in the players struggle, "I'm not going 7-9 this year". Ahem, 'I'm'? You mean WE'RE? He made all of it about HIM…and not THEM and that is a TITANIC failure on his part.
    As far as I'm concerned, he made his money and is gone, not to begrudge him but he should have brought in a McVay type to run his offense as he clearly had NO clue how to score points but his control freak/pride attitude was his undoing.

  2. The first step was he didn't win. He was given 5 years and never was over .500 with the team. Name another coach who went without a winning season with one team for 5 years. No blame to be distributed

  3. No way Jeff Fishhead will coach again in the nfl. Man look how fat and stubby he is. It’s hard to believe that he was once a football player!
