Will Jeff Fisher’s firing be included in All or Nothing?

We’ve seen former Rams coach Jeff Fisher share the news of his firing with his players and, more recently, with his staff. The only question left is whether we’ll see the moment where the termination became news to Fisher.

The second season of Amazon’s All or Nothing series either will or won’t include the moment when Fisher finds out his fate. If there’s any sense of fairness within NFL Films, which is owned and operated by the NFL, the show will include the moment when Fisher is fired, given that Hard Knocks routinely includes players learning for the first time that they’ve been released or traded.

It also will be interesting to see whether any internal deliberations regarding whether to fire Fisher are part of the show. Typically, Hard Knocks includes footage from meetings at which the futures of certain players are discussed. Why not show owner Stan Kroenke talking to whoever it is that he talked to before coming to the conclusion that it was time to change coaches?

I’m betting the under on both. I hope I’m wrong.

  1. Other than a mirror, just what or who is it to which or whom Stan Kroenke would be talking?

  2. “If there’s any sense of fairness within NFL Films…”

    This is a fundamental flaw in your reasoning. The world is not, and never will be ‘fair’. The flaw is expecting it to be or calling for it to be fair, which is a waste of time. The natural conclusion of continuing to pursue that flaw is the 3rd generation post modernist movement, a religion practiced by social justice warriors.

  3. If this is included Vince Young will have the biggest smile on his faces since draft day.

  4. The firing of players may show the coach and/or GM in a bad light. The firing of a coach may show the owner in a bad light. Something tells me one is slightly different than the other.

    Fair isn’t always fair. And fair isn’t always going to happen.

  5. The big question is will Silent Stan say something about Fisher? Not in a mirror, but with all the backwoods Missouri henchmen that follow him like in the movie Christmas Vacation.

  6. Fisher has survived basically his whole career from the Music City Miracle and coming one yard short of the Lombardi.

    I shudder to think how much more leeway he’d have been given had he won.

  7. I would love to be fired and have millions of dollars to fall back on. This guy is set for the rest of his life and nobody should feel sorry for him. Yeah it sucks to get fired but very few coaches ever step down on their own. Of the 32 teams in the NFL I could think of 31 teams who are going to fire their coach in the future except one, the Patriots. That is the reality of this business.

  8. Fisher stinks as a coach….but let’s be honest. He is at least as good as a number of existing NFL coaches. For example, does anyone really believe he is worse than Mike Tomlin or Marvin Lewis?

    Wow, if this isn’t one of the more troubling statements I’ve ever read on any forum.
    If not for those (in all their walks of life) pursuing social justice, this world would be a horrible, horrible scene full of mental clones and bereft of meaning.

    Fair is like Perfect- just because you can’t achieve it, doesn’t mean you shouldn’t strive to.

    That said, Fisher deserved this firing many, many years ago. Dammit, he just needed 1 more game to lose it and have the record all to himself!

  10. “How this man remained an NFL head coach for so long baffles me.”

    Because the pool of competent, qualified HC coaches and candidates is very small.

    There are probably 4-6 upper tier coaches, after which it goes quickly downhill. The bottom 3rd of the league routinely toil under people not competent to be a HC.

  11. Why do people always say the Titans were “one yard short of a Lombardi trophy”?

    If my math is correct, it only would have tied the game. Anything could have happened in OT.

  12. There are probably 4-6 upper tier coaches, after which it goes quickly downhill.

    Who the owner is means a ton in this sport.

    Reagan said that it’s amazing what can be accomplished if nobody worries about who is getting the credit. In a business full of egos, that can be hard to achieve.

  13. Fisher was the winningest coach during a five-season span (1999-2003) and struggled when his eccentric owner began making draft choices and choosing Fisher’s starting QB. Somehow, Fisher managed another 13 and 3 season with his backup QB (Kerry Collins) running the offense in 2008. THOSE are the accomplishments that made him the No. 1 sought-after coach in 2012.

  14. Heard an interview on Kevin and Bean with show runner Keith Cossrow, his firing is in there.

  15. In fairness to Fisher, he took over some pretty bad teams. The Rams were an absolute wasteland by the time Spagnuolo and Devaney were through with them and Fisher immediately made them respectable. But his teams could never get over the hump. They could beat anyone or lose to anyone on any given Sunday.
