The Rams stunned the football world on Monday afternoon, firing long-time head coach Jeff Fisher just a few months after handing him a two-year contract extension. Just last week, Fisher confirmed he signed that deal before the start of the 2016 season.
Special teams coordinator John Fassel, the son of former Giants head coach Jim Fassel, has been named the team’s interim head coach.

“This was solely based on performance,” said Kevin Demoff jersey, Rams executive vice president of football operations, during a news conference Monday. “Today was the best chance to move forward and finish the season with some direction and hope. It’s unfortunate for him today because this is an organizational failure … this is just not about the head coach and coaching staff. We have to improve across the board.”
Demoff went on cheap NFL jerseys to say that the Rams losing eight of its last nine games ultimately “tipped” the decision to get rid of Fisher. In addition, when asked if general manager Les Snead could be in jeopardy, Demoff said “it would be a mistake to say anybody in the building would be back next year.”

The 58-year-old Fisher has been in charge of the club since 2012 and in that time compiled a 31-45-1 record with zero playoff appearances. He burned through a No. 1 overall pick at quarterback which he inherited (Sam Bradford) and selected Jared Goff with the top selection in this year’s draft.

He placed a pass between two defenders to Jamison Crowder to wholesale NFL jerseys and put the Redskins jerseys into Philadelphia territory, found Pierre Garcon on fourth-and-1 to continue the drive and moved Washington inside Philadelphia’s 25, where running back Chris Thompson capped the winning drive with a touchdown run.

The Buccaneers barely got by the Saints this past Sunday in a 16-11 defensive-led victory. With the Saints driving down the field, Tampa Bay safety Keith Tandy jersey picked off Drew Brees in the game’s final minute to seal their fifth-straight victory.
Tampa Bay has run off five straight wins to take control of their own destiny in the NFC wild-card race. They currently hold the No. 2 wild-card spot if the season ended today, and are also in a tie with the Atlanta Falcons for the NFC South lead. The Falcons currently own the division based on tiebreakers.
The Saints’ playoff chances are slim to none with slim basically having left town following Sunday’s loss in Tampa. Five teams currently sit ahead of the Saints in the race for the last wild-card spot, the only ticket to the postseason still available to them.
The Bucs are another reminder that final judgments in November often look foolish in December. After falling to 3-5 last month, Tampa was left for dead by the pundits. Instead, they have risen to the tune of five straight wins, enough to notch them atop the NFC South with the Atlanta Falcons.
Where they go from here has as much to do with Tampa’s hurly-burly, evolving defense as it does with their starry young signal-caller.
