The result was a 28-0 drubbing at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers in which the Rams only accumulated 185 yards and 10 first downs while Keenum was 17-of-35 for 130 yards and two interceptions.Despite the atrocious play by Keenum and the offense, Fisher came out publicly and said that he will stay with Keenum as his starting quarterback.Not only has the team not gotten any better, but there’s also an argument to be made that they’ve gotten worse.Typically, stability is the key to any successful organization, but keeping a guy around who hasn’t shown the ability to win doesn’t seem to make any sense.Unfortunately, Jeff Fisher decided that Goff isn’t ready to start for the Rams and gave the job to Keenum to begin the year.Fisher then took it a step further during Week 1 by declaring Goff a healthy inactive and making Sean Mannion Keenum’s backup.
The team had drafted a franchise quarterback that should be a perfect compliment to their strong running game spearheaded by Todd Gurley and solid defense led by Robert Quinn and Aaron Donald.
What reason could Jeff possibly have for not wanting to let his young quarterback play and learn on the fly?
Jeff Fisher is in the midst of his fifth season with the Los Angeles Rams, and his record during that time is 27-37-1, with his best record coming in 2012 when the Rams went 7-8-1.
Most head coaches would’ve been fired by now, but not only does Fisher still have his job, he’s also expected to sign a three-year contract extension that will be announced any day now, according to Jeff is currently in the final year of his contract, but he’s done nothing during his tenure with the Rams to warrant a contract extension.
The biggest culprit in Jeff Fisher’s poor record with the Rams has always been the offense.Fisher and general manager Les Snead have had trouble finding stability at the quarterback position as they’ve had a bit of a revolving door at the position since Jeff arrived in St. It started with Sam Bradford, then Kellen Clemens, then Austin Davis, then Shaun Hill, then Nick Foles, and now Case Keenum.
