Yesterday, the Los Angeles Rams dropped their third straight game, losing to the New York Giants in London. In the loss, starting quarterback Case Keenum threw four interceptions against a Giants defense that had only two on the whole year.
Keenum now has 10 picks on the year to only eight touchdowns. He has had at least one turnover in each loss this year and has three games on the season where he has already thrown multiple picks. Keenum’s production has been been low, and there is no reason he should be playing over the number one overall pick Jared Goff, but Jeff Fisher came out yesterday after the loss and said that he has no plan of benching Keenum.
As much as quarterback change is needed in LA, Fisher’s comments and performance this season raises the question is it time for the Rams to get a new coach?
In his four years as head coach, Fisher’s Rams have yet to make the playoffs and have not had a winning season. They have also refused to add talent on offense outside of Tavon Austin and Todd Gurley and still don’t have an identity. Every year under Fisher, the Rams offense has been lackluster and void of playmakers. Since his days with the Titans, he has run a stagnant offense and not addressed the problem. He also hasn’t been to the playoffs since 2008, and continually finds ways to make no improvement from year to year.
Fisher is a good defensive coach, but it may be time to move on from him as a head coach. He cannot develop quarterbacks, which is a huge problem for a team that just gave up a lot to get Goff. He also did not acquire talent on the offensive side of the ball to help out his future franchise signal caller and the team has made almost no improvement under his four years as head coach. If the Rams want to succeed in LA, they’re going to have to move on from Fisher and find someone who will let Goff make his debut.
