Jeff Fisher matches Dan Reeves with most career losses

Say what you will about Jeff Fisher, but he’s a survivor. He has now survived long enough to tie Dan Reeves for the most losses in NFL history.

Both have 165, following a 42-14 loss by the Rams to the Falcons, one of the teams Reeves coached.

Career Loss No. 165 drops the 2016 Rams to 4-9, requiring Fisher to run the table to get to 7-9. It’s more likely that the Rams will lose the next three games than win them, which would drop the Rams to 4-12 and lay the foundation for Fisher’s two-year extension to become the basis for a buyout.

The biggest factor in a potential coaching change continues to be the reality that the team soon will begin selling premium products at its new stadium. If there’s a sense of malaise enveloping the franchise, it will be difficult to get the L.A. glitterati to deposit large checks in envelopes addressed to the Los Angeles Rams.

  1. They should have fired him before they moved. A new coach in a new city would have been the perfect time. Now they’re going to turn away half the fans who have no hope of the team not sucking.

  2. Chippy, it’s not even a Pat’s story. The Pat’s own what’s left of that mush you call a brain.

    Belichick’s father?????

    You’re woefully incompetent at trolling. How sad and pathetic?

  4. They may be tied as far as losses go, but Reeves was a much better coach. Never did get a Ring as a coach, but Reeves’ teams did make it to 4 Super Bowls. Fisher only made 1

  5. Fisher needs to hang on long enough to go out as the complete loser he is – most losses and under .500 lifetime.

  6. Jeff fisher says ‘were not going 7&9 or 8&8 or 9 and 7 or 10 and 6’. Well I guess he’s right cause he actually go ago 4 and 12.

    You really gotta start thinking most people in the stands could do a better job.

  7. Fisher’s had just 6 winning seasons in 22 years – the last two in 2007-2008 (when he was one-&-done both times in the playoffs). An amazing record – how does he do it? Think about it – 14 losing seasons!! – the guy is a freak of nature and his eventual career loss record will never be broken.

    Oops, 16 losing seasons! That’s even more than I can count! Amazing!

    Isn’t that just precious? Of course we’d all like to think so, but can anyone of you honestly say you’re one of the top thirty two of your profession? I kinda doubt it by the previous display of honesty.

  10. Dan Reeves 190-165-2
    Jeff Fisher 173–165–1

    Two things we can see out of this:

    a) Jeff Fisher did it faster than anyone else.
    b) Fisher has the better(?) losing percentage overall. He’d have to go on a 17-game win streak to get near Reeves’ overall.

    Well done…and here’s hoping the Seahawks can put you over the top on Thursday.

  11. The Dolphins have had a brutal decade of mediocrity and failure. The one glaring good thing was that Fisher turned them down and we t to the Rams who will remain in that status for many years to come. Sorry, Rams fans; we truly understand and hope you get a guy like Adam Gase who can turn it around quickly.

  12. I know Fisher has a bad record and hasn’t won since Tennessee but what about the people who hired him and continue to employ him ? What about the GM ? What have those guys ever won ? What have they done to keep their jobs ? They don’t have a proven record of winning. They have never had a winning season. They don’t have a proven record of drafting well. They alienate fans. This all starts at the top from SK then to Kevin Demoff. They make the call for who gets hired and fired. Fisher takes all the heat but the bottom line is Demoff is the person behind all of this for allowing it to get this far. What big name experienced coach is going to want to come in and work with these guys ? You cant hire a no name.
