Jeff Fisher September 2014

Jeff Fisher was one of the longest-tenured head coaches at the time in the NFL until his 17-year reign with the Tennessee Titans eventually came to an end.

Now with the St. Louis Rams for a few seasons, Fisher is still trying to make things happen with a struggling squad. At 14-17-1 for his career as the head coach of St. Louis, this season could fall into the same trap with quarterback Sam Bradford out for the season.

It's unknown how much of an effect this should have on Fisher. This season is now already a lost cause with low expectation, especially with Shaun Hill as the starting QB.

Could Fisher be on the hot seat?

Here's what Jim Thomas of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch has to say:

This is a question that will take an entire season to fully answer, but again only an outright collapse should make that happen. Outside Rams Park, expectations have been lowered by Bradford’s season-ending injury, but Fisher still seems relaxed and confident about this team and about new starting quarterback Shaun Hill.

However, Fisher and general manager Les Snead won’t get many sympathy votes on Bradford’s injury since the team didn’t draft a QB until the sixth round — Garrett Gilbert — who was cut.

It will all probably depend on how devoted Rams owner Sam Kroenke is to Fisher and if he buys into his system. All signs, however, point to that Fisher will be safe, according to ESPN.

Safe for now: Despite his not having posted a winning season since 2008 with the Tennessee Titans (13-3), there are no indications that Fisher must post a winning record or better to keep his job. And you can't blame him for the two ACL injuries to QB Sam Bradford. League sources believe Fisher has personnel control over the team, so the Rams would have to essentially start over if they moved on from Fisher.
