It’s no secret that the Los Angeles Rams are the only team in the NFL that has yet to get in the end zone. With only nine points in two games, the Rams rank dead last in the league in scoring and yards per game and head coach Jeff Fisher knows something needs to change.
The fact that they were able to get a win shows how good the defense was against the Seattle Seahawks, but that simply can’t continue if the Rams plan on making a playoff run this season.
Fisher had an interesting way of trying to change things for his offense as was noted by Gary Klein of the LA Times:
Coach Jeff Fisher gathered the offense in the end zone before practice this week at Cal Lutheran and instructed all the players to touch a ball, ostensibly to give them the feeling of what it’s like to finish a drive there.
Fisher also told the team that while searching the halls of the team’s facility he found a box.
“I showed it to them,” he said Wednesday. “It was full of touchdowns. So we watched some touchdowns.”
Tight end Lance Kendricks understood message that Fisher was trying to send:
“He makes us stand in the end zone and he’s like, “See, this is a football. This is the end zone. This is where you’re supposed to be,’” Kendricks said. “So we kind of laugh at it, but I know he’s kind of serious.
“We’ve just got to finish drives.”
It’s good to see Fisher trying to keep things light in the midst of the team’s offensive struggles. The Rams have ultimately have to get some touchdowns otherwise the pressure on the defense will just be too much.
Hopefully the offense takes this and figures out what needs to happen to end this slump. Getting Todd Gurley going would be a great start. But whatever the case may be, getting some touchdowns against the Bucs is a necessity.
