But, Los Angeles Rams head coach Jeff Fisher apparently isn't worried about job security.
After recently straining the team's relationship with Hall of Fame running back Eric Dickerson, some called into question Fisher's match with coaching in the Hollywood market. The team lost in embarrassing fashion, giving up 49 points to the New Orleans Saints last Sunday, and it took 10 weeks to get first-overall pick Jared Goff game-ready.
Despite all that, Fisher says he's not worried about being on the job hunt this winter.
"We opened our world to 'Hard Knocks,'" Fisher said when asked about the "7-9 bullshit" comments after Wednesday's practice, according to ESPN's Alden Gonzalez. "Those comments came after a couple of issues that we had. I've never been satisfied with 7-9 or 8-8. I've had a number of winning seasons.
"I'm not concerned. I don't look over my shoulder, like I've said over and over again. I'm not concerned about my job. I have a great relationship with (owner Stan Kroenke). He understands the difficulties that were placed on this organization as far as the move is concerned. And I'm moving forward optimistically with this team."
Fisher isn't the only one in the Rams' organization who thinks his losing record won't be enough to fire the 58-year-old coach. Rams vice president of football operations Kevin Demoff said earlier Wednesday that it's "unfair" to evaluate Fisher based on his season record.
In all four of his previous seasons coaching the Rams, Fisher has finished with between six and seven wins. He has not had a winning season since coaching the Tennessee Titans in 2008.
