Why is Jeff Fisher never on the hot seat?

St. Louis Rams’ Jeff Fisher has been a head coach in the NFL for the better part of the last twenty years. He has a reputation of being a great coach, a likable person and winning persona. Well, he must be an extremely charming individual on a personal level because a quick rundown of his recent accomplishments leaves you wondering how the guy has held a job for so long. Again, his popularity alone will garner this article some negative comments about how I have no idea what good coaching is, but I am really just looking at the facts and records that go along with Fisher.…

Every year the landscape of the NFL is changing. Sometimes for the better, sometimes for the worse.
