Rams trying lighthearted approach to lack of touchdowns

The Rams haven’t scored a touchdown yet this season, something that didn’t stop them from beating the Seahawks last Sunday even if offensive coordinator Rob Boras said it would be “ignorant” to say it wasn’t a concern.

It’s not a concern that the Rams are approaching with overly somber or anxious attitudes, however. The lack of touchdowns is being dealt with in a lighthearted manner by coach Jeff Fisher.

“I told them this morning, I was running around the building with the move and everything looking for some things that I hadn’t been able to find yet for my office. I found a box, and I showed it to them — it was full of touchdowns,” Fisher said, via the team’s website. “So we watched some touchdowns today. It has to be fun — this business has to be fun. As long as they’re doing the work, and focused, and executing, and doing the things we’ve asked, then it’s OK to have some fun here and there.”

Tight end Lance Kendricks said Fisher had players stand in the end zone with a ball and told them “this is where you’re supposed to be” as part of the attempt to laugh instead of cry about the offensive shortcomings. It will be hard to keep that up for too long as the Rams are going to need to get into the end zone for real if they’re going to win regularly, but a home win makes it a bit easier to avoid crisis mode this week.

    I guess a coach can laugh about it when he has Bill Belichick’s job security.

    As a Ram fan, I don’t find it funny at all.

    Taking lighthearted approach to their post season chances…

    Given that this is Jeff Fisher, I suspect the box had 7-9 touchdowns inside it.

    I am sure we will cure them of that this weekend.

    So, since “they’re doing the work, and focused, and executing, and doing the things we’ve asked” then who is to blame for such an anemic offense? Could it be a lousy coach?

    7-9 in your dreams… 4-12 more likely

    That’s some 7-9 bulls___t right there

    I wonder if they are taking a light hearted approach to the lawsuits coming at them from PSL holders in St. Louis.

    And this is the guy that just got a “secret extension”. Fisher really must work for the CIA and has secret pics of every NFL owner to keep him employed.

    Maybe a song and dance would help.

    I think Jeff went around his office and found a box of ineffective Offensive Coordinators. Where else would he have found Rob Boras? Anyone raise their hand if they had ever heard of this guy before he was promoted to OC?

    That’s the key to never ending mediocrity yet you keep your job…just keep hiring incompetent OC’s.
    It works for Fisher.

    Would love to bring in Mike Martz as OC. Not sure if Goff has the mental capability of understanding the offense, but it would great to see Mad Mike back with the Rams in LA!
