Jeff Fisher's job is safe in St. Louis, despite the 5-8 Rams closing in on their fourth straight losing season under Fisher. Rams owner Stan Kroenke is likely stuck in St. Louis for another year, and he is focused on a possible move to Los Angeles and is not in the business of paying ?people $6 million plus to leave for a product he isn't all that engaged in right now, anyway.

Profit opportunities are scant for the lame-duck Rams in St. Louis and Fisher remains very much aligned with team president Kevin Demoff and there was never any movement to making a coaching move even as dire as it is there. Kroenke's best-case scenario now is to have any moves to Los Angeles pushed back until 2017. It's hard to imagine his Inglewood stadium projects get 24 votes by mid-January, and that will lead to the status quo for the most part.

Fisher has one year remaining on a five-year, $35 million deal.

General manager Les Snead's deal is up and I haven't heard definitively there won't be any changes to the football operations staff. But sources said Fisher has not made any suggestions to ownership about changing GMs -- Fisher actually has final say over the roster and all transactions -- and with Kroenke not looking to sink more money into the franchise until it's long-term future is sorted out, it's likely Snead would return in 2016.
