Someone isn’t happy about the possibility of Los Angeles Rams head coach Jeff Fisher getting an extension, and his name is Ron Jaworski.

The longtime ESPN NFL analyst and former Philadelphia Eagles quarterback didn’t mince words to Mighty 1090 AM on March 1 when asked about his thoughts on Fisher:

“Did you say great coach?” Jaworski started off when being interviewed by Dan Sileo. “You’ve got to be kidding me. He’s an awful coach. He’s a terrible coach. He’s been fired by 30 teams years ago and is struggling to get back into this league. If you can’t develop a quarterback in the National Football League, you can’t be a consistent winning coach. Jeff Fisher went to one Super Bowl, he’s never developed into a consistent winning coach and he’s never developed a quarterback outside of Steve McNair. And Steve came in with a lot of ability and certainly, I did not think he was the guy.

“When you look at what that Rams offense was a year ago, it was disgusting,” Jaworski continued. “It was terrible. They were firing coaches. They were firing players. It was terrible.”

Jaworski then criticized Fisher’s decision to trade away the No. 2 overall pick to the Washington Redskins in exchange for three first round picks and a second round pick back in 2012. The move allowed Washington to draft Robert Griffin III. Jaworski pointed out that Fisher has “done nothing with it” and that “nothing positive has happened.”

Fisher has endured four consecutive losing seasons with the Rams, but has reportedly been in contract negotiations with L.A. since Feb. 29. Fisher is 27-36-1 overall with the Rams and 169-156-1 overall in his 21 seasons as head coach.
