Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson still has a problem with Rams coach Jeff Fisher.
Dickerson appeared on ESPN this morning and said he had a great conversation with Rams COO Kevin Demoff last night, but Dickerson then reiterated that he still wants no part of Fisher.
“I had a very good meeting with Kevin Demoff. We talked for almost three hours,” Dickerson said.
So what’s his beef with Fisher? Dickerson said there are two issues: First, Fisher treated him disrespectfully in a phone call. And second, Dickerson doesn’t think Fisher is the right coach for the Rams. As a result of those two issues, Dickerson said he’s done going to Rams games while Fisher is there.
“I will not go back to the games as long as Jeff Fisher is there,” Dickerson said. “I don’t have a vendetta against Jeff at all . . . but no, I won’t, because I felt like the call to me was a very disrespectful call.”
Dickerson said he believes the Rams would be a better team if they fired Fisher.
“I think this football team would do better without Jeff. That’s just my opinion,” he said. “He’s had five years to turn this team around and he’s had all losing seasons.”
Dickerson — who made the trip to the ESPN studio to talk about the controversy — also said he’d rather not be talking about it.
“I’m really tired of talking about this, seriously,” Dickerson said.
Then perhaps Dickerson should stop talking about this. The reason the story has legs is that Dickerson, one of the Rams’ all-time great players, keeps talking about how much he dislikes the Rams’ current coach.
