ST. LOUIS (AP) — Jeff Fisher is upset with the Rams' 1-3 start — and hasn't tried to hide his anger.
In his 18th season as an NFL head coach and second with St. Louis, Fisher answered only two questions before walking out of his postgame press conference Thursday night after a 35-11 loss to San Francisco.
He spoke for 1 minute, 32 seconds and has shed little light on one of his toughest losses with the Rams.
"We will get it fixed," has been his simple five-word mantra over the past few days as the Rams prepare to face Jacksonville (0-4) at home Sunday.
"Coach is competitive and he doesn't like losing," St. Louis defensive end Robert Quinn said. "Nobody does. He's been around for a numerous amount of years. He knows how to get the best out of players and he knows how to turn things around."
The Rams have been outscored 66-18 in the last two games, the second-worst two-game stretch in Fisher's career. While at Tennessee in 2009, the Titans lost 31-9 to Indianapolis and 59-0 to New England in Weeks 5 and 6 on the way to an 0-6 start. That team rebounded to finish 8-8. In 2006, Tennessee bounced back from a 0-5 start to end up 8-8.
So Fisher has experience in overcoming slow starts.
"He's doing everything he can" wide receiver Brian Quick said. "He believes in us and we have to start believing in ourselves. He's helping us and we know what we have to do to move forward."
The Rams' lack of a running game has played a key role in the rough start. St. Louis has rushed 73 times for 189 yards, an average of 47.3 yards per game, last in the NFL.
