Jeff Fisher is really excited about the Rams 'record-setting' punting unit

It's been a weird couple of weeks for Jeff Fisher, who spent the last week getting trashed in the media by Los Angeles Rams legend Eric Dickerson, who said he was done attending games until Fisher is gone after allegedly being asked to leave the sideline of games.

Then Fisher forgot that Danny Woodhead and Brandon Bolden aren't the Patriots running backs, which happened shortly before his team managed less than 100 yards in the first three quarters against the Pats. Fortunately news broke on Sunday about Fisher getting a two-year extension that he actually signed earlier in the season, so he's got that going for him.

And now Fisher is out there bragging about how well his team is punting the ball.

That's like taking your spouse to McDonald's and then bragging to your friends about your hot date the other night. The Rams are good at punting -- even Bill Belichick acknowledged that Johnny Hekker is a legit "weapon" for that team because of his punting and his ability to throw the ball too.

Fisher also got asked a tough question about being on the verge of breaking the record for most losses in a career by a coach.

The "half full" angle on "most losses ever" is kind of a tough one, but there is a little bit of validity there.

In order to lose the most games in NFL history as a coach, you've got to coach for a really long time. Which means you've got to manage to win some games, because otherwise you wouldn't have the opportunity to keep coaching.

Between that and Hekker, everything's coming up Fisher.
