Back in November, when the Los Angeles Rams revealed themselves as a legitimately formidable and dominant team, a significant share of the success seemed like it could be credited to simply getting rid of head coach and possible quarterback poisoner Jeff Fisher. Since then, it is clear that I was too lenient on Fisher.
The Rams are 6-2 and in first place in their division. Todd Gurley, who looked possessed by the spirit of Trent Richardson last season, is a fringe MVP candidate this year. Jared Goff no longer looks like butt. The team is solid, but the offense in particular has been outstanding. It’s been quite a turnaround:
The highlight of the 2016-17 Rams’ season was former head coach Jeff Fisher struggling to find his challenge flag in the pockets of his big coat. Now, thanks to Amazon’s All Or Nothing, we can relive the moment with full, on-field audio:
Vince Young has tried a few comebacks in recent years, his latest ending on June 17 after being cut by the CFL’s Saskatchewan Roughriders following a torn hamstring. Near the end of that project, the quarterback had time to talk shit about former Titans head coach Jeff Fisher to Sports Illustrated.
The jig is officially up for Jeff Fisher. The Los Angeles Rams have fired their head coach of five seasons today.
There is so much beauty in this world, if you only stop to appreciate it. I truly believe that when it’s all said and done, we will look back on Jeff Fisher asserting “I’m not fucking going 7-9"—and then getting a secret contract extension—as one of the funnier things that’s ever happened in football.
Just when it looked like the jig was up for Los Angeles Rams head coach Jeff Fisher, he reminded everyone that for Jeff Fisher, the jig is never up.
Okay, Jeff Fisher has to be messing with everyone. How could a man work in the league for this long if he were actually this dumb and uninformed? NFL coaches are stupid in many ways, but they’re at least obsessive about their jobs. Today, the Rams head coach appeared to be using years-old intel to plan Sunday’s game…
Jeff Fisher—coach of the 4-7 Rams, losers of six of seven and owners of the least productive offense in football—is currently embroiled in a feud with Eric Dickerson, who starred for the Rams the last time they were (good) in Los Angeles. The beef stems from Fisher reportedly banning Dickerson from the sidelines due…
The thought of Jeff Fisher evokes the phrase “experienced mediocrity.” He shuffles along with the Rams, underachieving here and there, while carrying a lengthy, but not necessarily good, résumé as a shield to protect his job. Based on what Fisher did Sunday, though, I’m starting to wonder whether he knows exactly what…
No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff finally made his first start at quarterback for the Los Angeles Rams yesterday, and he looked a lot like the player we saw in the preseason, which is to say he was kind of butt.
Strap the fuck in, because the 4-5 Los Angeles Rams finally gave us a reason to watch their quest for 7-9. Finally, after months of dithering, Jeff Fisher has made the move. Case Keenum? Benched! First overall draft pick Jared Goff? Ready as shit.
I’d like to apologize to you on behalf of sports if you watched yesterday’s 9-6 Rams win over the Jets, a game that seemed absolutely destined to be a tie and didn’t end up with even that novelty to recommend it. The Jets are so unwatchable that they flexed Tom Brady out of primetime, but let’s not sleep on the…
Los Angeles fans waited a long time for a football team, but they can’t wait any longer for a competent quarterback. As early as the second quarter, and multiple times in the Rams’ 13-10 loss to the Panthers, the Coliseum crowd struck up the chant: “We want Goff!”
Hi, did you stay up to watch the late Monday Night Football game?
The Los Angeles Rams started their season off with a robust fart noise Monday night, as the rebuilding San Francisco 49ers shut them out in Santa Clara, 28-0.
The preseason is over now, and if you didn’t get a chance to catch any of first overall pick Jared Goff, you may have to wait around a while.
