Four more games.
After nearly five seasons of “well, maybe Fisher just needs time”, the time has come for Fisher to perform or pack it up. The Rams got out to a 3-1 start this season, but last week’s loss in London against the New York Giants set the Rams back to 3-4. That is some 7-9 bullshit.
So let’s look at the four games following the bye week that will be make or break for Fisher. In order, the Rams will play: home versus the Carolina Panthers, away versus the New York Jets, home versus the Miami Dolphins, and, finally, away against the New Orleans Saints.
All of these teams are competitive and have their moments, but none of them are among the league’s top tier. The Rams have to win at least two of these games to put themselves at 5-6 or else Fisher is certainly gone if Roggins’ report is accurate. 5-6 is somewhat salvageable depending on how the Wild Card picture looks, but 4-7 or 3-8?
