Jeff Fisher Approval Poll: An Uncomfortable Way To Land Back At .500

After a close loss to the Minnesota Vikings, the Rams are back to .500 at 4-4. What does that mean in terms of Jeff Fisher's performance as head coach?

The Saint Louis Rams dropped an overtime game to the Minnesota Vikings, which puts them at 4-4, still in second place in NFC West thanks to a tie-breaker with Seattle Seahawks.

This should be a fun approval poll, Jeff Fisher was in the news a lot after the game.

First, by people calling him out or defending him after the hit by LaMarcus Joyner that knocked Teddy Bridgewater out of the game in the 4th quarter. Secondly, some/most fans are unhappy with the team’s offensive play calling – especially on 3rd down. Thirdly, perhaps a lack of player control; Janoris seemingly not giving a rat’s ass about the collective play of the team and having two players suspended a total of three times in 2015 (Watts and Bailey).

Those are just some (mostly) negative points to consider when voting in the poll below. A little memo to maybe soften the blow: missing Tim McDonald Jr, Robert Quinn, Rob Havenstein, Chris Long, and Alec Ogletree from the line-up always hurts. However, that’s life in the NFL. A missed block-in-the-back call gave Vikings great field position on their game winning drive (should've started on the 10 or 11 yard line). Again, that's life in the NFL; Rams fans should be used to referees playing a major part in games (25 combined penalties in the game vs 49ers).

I won't keep listing the good and the bad, please vote below and vent in the comments.

As always, the scale stays the same:

1 – He stinks like hockey pads after a game

10 – Love him

The approval poll is for all of 2015, placing a slight emphasis on the last game.

Rams get the Bears at home this upcoming Sunday and are huge favorites early in the week.
