St. Louis Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher Is Out Of Answers

We have reached the end of the road.

Jeff Curry-USA TODAY Sports

St. Louis Rams Head Coach Jeff Fisher isn't done with football answers. He's done with media answers.

Jim Thomas gets to ask Jeff Fisher questions after every game. Most of them are benign. On purpose. They're not meant to explain anything about the game. They're meant to provide Jim Thomas with a filler quote to finish his post-game story.

"We'll fix it."

"Yeah, I didn't see that at the time."

"That wasn't part of the gameplan."

"They have a good team and a good coaching staff."

"We just have to execute better."

You've seen Bull Durham. Fisher knows what he's doing. Thomas knows what he's doing. It's not anything new or anything special.

His being out of answers today means he's just out of tolerance. He's done playing the game with the media. He's at the end of his line. The football solutions haven't come. The media solutions don't have to.

Fisher's not interested in doing half of Thomas' job when he can't do most of his own at this point.
