Rams’ Jeff Fisher, Les Snead Dispute Tension

Although a report yesterday indicated that Rams general manager Les Snead and head coach Jeff Fisher are at odds — and that the problems between the two “have been an open secret in league circles for some time” — both men today disputed any notion of discord in the Los Angeles offices, according to Alden Gonzalez of ESPN.com.Jeff Fisher/Les Snead (Vertical)

I’m well aware of what has come out, and I can say this: I think it’s painted a picture totally different,” Snead said. “Relationship’s really good. We’ve worked together from the start, in every decision. Every decision that’s made, especially from a personnel standpoint.”

“There’s no issues between Les and I, by no means,” Fisher said. “We agree to disagree. We’ve had a fun run, but we’re certainly disappointed in, as I said on Tuesday, the outcome. We have work to do, but we’re doing it together.” Fisher additionally vowed to locate the source of the story. “When you’re 4-8, people are frustrated, you know? They’re frustrated. We need to find out where it’s coming from.”

The Rams recently extended both Snead and Fisher, though at least Fisher had actually put pen to paper in the summer despite the announcement not coming until this month. Both decision-makers are believed to have been signed through the 2017 season, with Los Angeles ownership likely holding a 2018 option. Fisher, for his part, said he was “unaware” Snead was also handed a new deal, and appeared to take a shot at the club’s recent draft strategy.

    Translation: Fisher will have Snead gone in a week.

      Kroenke only cares about his bottom line, not the product on the field. If he gave Snead a contract extension, Snead will be going no where. He won’t eat the contract.

    How can a stadium full of fans yelling for a new coach and to fire fisher lead to an extension for the most losingest coach in the NFL ? He doesnt even look happy to be there.

    • Extension was signed before the season just wasn’t announced until recently.

  3. Seems to me that if the Coach and GM are not working together, the team is going to struggle. These comments should have been made behind closed doors. I expect all the issues will be worked out before the Rams move into the new mega stadium.

  4. This is exactly how the Harbaugh/Baalke fallout began in San Francisco. Unfortunately, in San Francisco they let go of the wrong guy.
