08:05 AM ET 01.11 | Jeff Fisher has a decision to make that will affect the futures of two NFL franchises. [Fisher] might have looked like a lock to take the St. Louis Rams' head-coaching job over the Dolphins' offer. But two days after he finished his visit to St. Louis, neither team seemed to know which way he was leaning. The Dolphins have been exploring other options since interviewing the former Tennessee Titans coach. On Tuesday, the Dolphins completed their visit in Davie with Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer. Last week, after Fisher's visit, the Dolphins interviewed Green Bay Packers offensive coordinator Joe Philbin. Now the Rams are looking for other options, too.

Oh, the suspense...

He was actually coveting the Jaguars job and is struggling with the refection.

Take your mustache to the broadcast booth...Dolphins should have tanked to get a better pick & the Rams are stuck with the untradable sam bradford

At least he's not returning to the Titans.

This also could be a sign that he's really not interested in either job.

Dang, two teams battling it out for a coach with a winning record of .542. What's next week's headline: Fisher Fishing Fishes in Fishkill?

indeed!!

maybe he's holding out for a management position.

Deciding between the Rams and the Fish is like deciding whether to hang yourself or pop a whole lot of pills. Why rush it?

Tampa Bay?

Fisher would be too expensive for their taste.

Fisher is waiting to see what other positions become available. He knows something we don't yet about coaching changes around the league. Or, put another way, he doesn't want either the 'fins or Rams.

January 11, 2012  09:26 AM ET

I could see not wanting the Rams.....but the Fish I would think could be a good job.

I don't think the Rams would want to trade Bradford if they could. Yeah he had a Sophomore slump, but really did you see that team? He has tons of potential and needs more than two years to be given a fair evaluation. Bradford was one of the highest ranked QB prospects to come out in a long time, the biggest worry shouldn't be if he can play but more if he is injury prone. Don't forget prior to this year Matthew Stafford was getting labeled with the injury prone label and then he comes out and is hands down one of the best QBs this year.

Fighting New England for the division title every year might not be an inviting idea. And coaching isn't the only problem in Miami.
