Jeff Fisher video reveals harsh reality of National Football League coach firings

If there's any sense of fairness within NFL Films, which is owned and operated by the NFL, the show will include the moment when Fisher is fired, given that Hard Knocks routinely includes players learning for the first time that they've been released or traded.

The NFL - professional sports, for that matter - is an unfeeling business.

Mike Jordan, Matt Longacre and the Los Angeles Rams will be the subject of the season season of All or Nothing, an Emmy-winning series produced by NFL Films available on Amazon Prime.

In a clip released by the NFL, Fisher chokes up as he tells his shocked staff that he was sacked after the Rams' Week 14 loss to the Falcons. "But this business is based on wins and losses". Fisher himself struggles to hold back tears. "You guys didn't let me down. I was just fired", Fisher said, much to the physical shock of his coaching staff.

Fisher was sacked as head coach following a 42-14 loss to the Atlanta Falcons during Week 14. He was replaced by interim John Fassel. "Some great ones. This is one that you're probably going to remember because I'm no longer your head coach", Fisher told players.

Fisher is now without an National Football League coaching job. In five seasons with the team, he led them to a disappointing 31-45-1 record and they never finished better than third in the NFC West under his watch.
