I think he already is the best Rams coach ever.
The only one who has achieved more than him was Vermeil, but he also only had one good season as a Rams coach.
He's the only Rams coach to win the AP coach of the year award. He's one away from tying the most playoff wins by a Rams head coach too.
Personally I just think Fisher was too stubborn on his offensive philosophy.Fish is a good leader of men. He's just weak on the X's and O's. I think he's a nice fit for college because of that. Either way I'm happy to see him get a gig doing what he loves and hope he takes advantage.
The other thing with Fisher is he could not attract a good young independent OC, especially after yr 3 after Schotty left. Everyone knew he was a dead man walking.His offense was definitely outdated but his defense I think always played up to and better than expectations especially with how anemic the offense was
I agree Fisher held himself back by not finding the right offensive mind. He’s drafts trying to fix the line was decent got some actual players but the trades for WRs and tightened was dismal too but for the most part I feel like Fisher should be high on the listThe other thing with Fisher is he could not attract a good young independent OC, especially after yr 3 after Schotty left. Everyone knew he was a dead man walking.
Well that depends on the POV. Vermeil won a Superbowl in his one and only postseason with the Rams. Martz did as much as McVay has done, if not more. 6 years, 4 postseasons, 1 Superbowl loss. I was surprised to see Mad Mikes name missing on some lists in this thread. Two consecutive years AFTER the SB, Mad Mike had the Rams as the #1 offense in yards and #1 offense in points. McVay's 2017 Rams were the #1 offense in points and nary another #1 ranking in 4 years. Don't get me wrong, I think McVay is going to be the best Rams coach ever but right now? Not yet. The addition of Stafford will help, for sure.
