so fisher intentionally brought goff along slowly with an eye on his future and mcvay reaped the benefits - mcvay, as a result, was able to then "take off" with goff.

um, yeah, no.

Fisher makes no sense here. He said he had control over what got aired on hard knocks and protected players from embarrassing stuff, yet he still threw Goff under the bus with the sun sets thing. And then he does it AGAIN in this interview. What a scumbag.

Fisher is football smart. No doubt.

His ego was his downfall. Again no doubt.

We went to the Super Bowl last year with Jeff's smarts. A fool would think otherwise. Donald, Gurley, Goff, etc.......

Thank god we have McVay/Snead and not Snisher.

GO RAMS!!!

I've read in the past, that AD was not his choice and neither was Goff...

With AD, he didn't like small DT, and was more drawn to bigger DT....
It was his Coaching staff and scouting team on the defensive side of the ball that talked him into that pick...

I remember he was being interview after he got canned,,,, that he mention during the draft that they were going into a different direction... and scouts and management were more of a Goff pick, so he agreed with that choice... but he knew he was out the door, cause he didn't have any say so in the draft anymore...

Listening to him, always seems like an excuse is coming.

I just have less-than-no interesting in watching or listening to an interview with him at this point.
I lived through it as a fan and have seen, clearly, what a fucking disaster that operation had become under him.

I’ve seen lots of people say in the last few years that Fisher is a great guy but the game had just passed him by etc.

I just don’t see him that way. I see him as a finger pointer and excuse maker. He was horrible as coach of the Rams. His philosophy was to have a dominating defense and an offense that wouldn’t lose the game for you. But the defense was never near good enough to win that way and everybody knows what a disaster the offense was every season. He was stubborn and stupid.

I can’t stand the way he still implies that he deserves credit for what the Rams are doing now. You have to be a real simpleton to buy into it.

He was a reasonably good head coach 20 years ago but has been irrelevant for many years. Yes, the game passed him by a long time ago. If he could admit that to himself, then maybe the great guy label would fit.
