Should Jeff Fisher Day Be 7-9 or 8-8?

As we come to July ninth, we are reminded of Jeff Fischer's "7 and 9 b***s***."

ST. LOUIS (KMOX) – The internet is having some fun today with former St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher, and his infamous win-loss record. But some people believe today is not the correct date to celebrate his historically awful win-loss record.

Fisher, the former head coach of the St. Louis Rams, Tennessee Titans and Houston Oilers is just one career loss short of the most NFL losses of all-time. But it's his season-by-season record that matters here.

We could honor the coach on July 9, because of his well-known "7-9 b***s***" speech on Hard Knocks.


His special day could also be on August 8, because of how many times his teams finished 8-8 in a regular season. Five times to be exact.

St. Louis should probably celebrate in July, since two of his four seasons in St. Louis ended at 7-9. And it was almost happened in the 2012 season too, but the Rams were able to tie one game for a 7-8-1 record.

Happy Jeff Fisher Day!
