I remember listening to a radio shows,,, I think it was the Roggin's show, that the FO was going into a different direction,,, and to draft a QB...

That didn't come from Fisher and it was Snead's scouting team, well in advance scouting Goff....

Then also during that time frame, Fisher got an extension on his contract, but it wasn't a long term... this is were he knew he wasn't part of the plan any more... Snead now had the final say so,,,,

Plus according to the other OP stating that Fisher hired Snead, if so, he would of been canned too....

But that was Demoff's hire and he gave Snead one more chance with also a short term contract and the reins for 2016 with the final say so for players personnel,,,

This was all behind close doors that most national media didn't know...
including the move to L.A....

At that time, Roggin had the inside tract in 2014/15/16 that RAMs will be moving back and the personnel hiring... and not the national media....

Fisher knew once the move was completed that he would be replaced... I remember he was being interview after he was fired and he said that he wasn't part of the picture after the move...

Let's face facts though.....even if he wanted Goff, even if he got him into the lineup from day 1.....under Fisher, his growth and learning potential was as limited as trying to drive a Ferrari in New York City. Impossible.

Donald? I'll give him credit. He was of the defensive mind.



Donald wasn't Fishers guy either,,, Fisher wanted a bigger DT,,,
it was Snead scouting team and the defensive coaching staff...

Well I don't have "inside" knowledge so I can't say for sure. Just looking at his tenure, Donald was drafted in 2014 when Fisher's Rams were 14-17-1. Admittedly not world beaters but way better than the previous 5 years. It would be easy to believe he had as much power then as at any time during his tenure.

so fisher's claim is that mcvay is enjoying the talent he assembled, talent that he could only squeeze 4 wins from? and by extension, i'm assuming, fisher was just one season away from winning the nfc west and putting the rams in the postseason for the first time in 13 years? come to think of it, mcvay is kinda like malavasi, who took over and enjoyed knox's great team.

Jeffery Michael Fisher is the coaching equivalent of a genital wart...my apologies if my comment offends anyone or sends them immediately to their physician.

@Elvis covered the QB situation.
So McVay comes in and they upgrade the Oline with Big Whit Which helps rejuvenate Gurley, upgrade the WR core with Woods, Kupp and Cooks/Watkins Which all adds up to elevated play of the QB who was playing in a modern day offense.
Any implication that the Fisher left a turn key team is just laughable.
By all accounts of those who went to TC in 2016, Fisher was all in with the offense. It was all his design hence having his stooge-fest of coaches and a charade of “bringing Goff along slowly”
I don’t know if he’s even worthy of a network job.
The guys who have done well in the booth typically use self deprecating humor, we all know how great they were. With Fisher it’s the polar opposite, he’s all about saying how great he was.
Fail
Funny, what you described sounds a lot like Brian Billick to me. He still doesn't understand why he isn't currently a head coach.

The only thing Fisher deserves credit for is creating enough of an appearance that the Rams were trying to win, to get them out of St. Louis. That was the baseline expectation of why he was hired. If he turned out to be actually good, then so much the better.
