Time is running out for Rams running back Todd Gurley to get on track

By RICH HAMMOND
LOS ANGELES – It’s an anniversary the Rams and Todd Gurley don’t want to celebrate.

Dec. 13, 2015, marks the last time Gurley ran for 100 yards. He torched Detroit that day for 140 yards and two touchdowns on only 16 carries, an exclamation point near the end of an excellent rookie season.

It would continue. It had to, didn’t it? Gurley rushed for 1,106 yards in 2015, third-most in the NFL, even though he missed three games. At the very least, 1,500 yards seemed reasonable for Gurley in 2016. Instead, Gurley hasn’t come close, and has yet to top 85 rushing yards in a game this season.

Bonsignore: In a refreshing twist, Rams GM Les Snead opens up about team’s woes

 

By VINCENT BONSIGNORE 

Near the end of a 45-minute interview with reporters to end one of the toughest 14-day stretches in the new history of the Los Angles Rams, Les Snead, the club’s general manager, glanced toward Rams public relations man Artis Twyman.

Normally in these circumstances, the gesture would serve a very specific purpose.

As in: Hey man, get this wrapped up and get me the heck out of here.

Instead, Snead told Twyman to cool his heels and chill out.

Rams still waiting for No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff to blossom

By Jack Wang

THOUSAND OAKS >> Seven months ago, Jeff Fisher gushed about the future of the Los Angeles Rams.

“I am so excited,” said Fisher, who often appears dour regardless of his actual mood. “You should have seen us in the room there. Did you see it? I’m happy, are you kidding me? We just drafted a franchise quarterback with the first pick in the draft.”

He was referring to Jared Goff, the Cal product whom the franchise had moved heaven and earth to acquire. Originally slotted behind 14 other teams in the 2016 NFL Draft, the Rams gave the Titans six selections — including their 2017 first-round pick — to move up to No. 1 overall.

Could Los Angeles Rams Face Atlanta Falcons Without Julio Jones in Week 14?

by Dan Parzych

The Los Angeles Rams could face the Atlanta Falcons on Sunday without their star wide receiver Julio Jones.

When looking at how the two teams compare on paper, the Los Angeles Rams will need plenty of help if they’re going to have any chance of defeating the high-powered offense of the Atlanta Falcons in Week 14. With that being said, the Rams will certainly keep an eye on the status of Julio Jones as the star wideout for the Falcons will be a game-time decision.

Unfortunately, Jones has been dealing with a turf toe injury that has prevented him from practicing all week with Atlanta, which is the last thing any fantasy football owner wants to hear with league playoffs getting underway. Obviously, the last thing the Falcons want to deal with is having one of their best players watch from the sidelines against the Rams, and while it seems like Jones may end up playing, one Falcons beat writer believes otherwise.

Prediction Saturday: Rams face biggest game of season

By Steve Rivera

Over the course of this 2016 season, the Los Angeles Rams have finally arrived at a defining moment. Tomorrow, against the Atlanta Falcons, this team who has stumbled to the suddenness of another losing season, has an opportunity to show fans they aren’t always the tabloid fodder they’ve become most known as.

Through twelve games, head coach Jeff Fisher has padded his resume with eight more losses that guarantees another losing season EVEN if the Rams win their last four. Forget the news of contract extensions, this team needs to win a game despite Jeff Fisher. They need to win for them.

At some point this year, they subtly segued to also-rans. A group who loved their “Ol’ Ball Coach” and pleased as punch that he may be hanging on for another season in the California sun. Wins have become a subjective metric of success, a throw away stat. Maybe, just maybe, an afternoon in front of a small group of fans on the verge of not giving a damn is overdue.

Jim Harbaugh to Los Angeles Rams Rumor a ‘Very Real Thing’

by Michael Moraitis1

Could the Los Angeles Rams be looking to make Jim Harbaugh their next head coach?

If the Los Angeles Rams decide to make a coaching change at the end of the 2016 season, there is a possibility that Jim Harbaugh could become the next head coach.

MMQB’s Albert Breer was on the Colin Cowherd show on Friday and spoke about the overall state of the Rams. Among the topics discussed was the rumor that head coach Jeff Fisher and general manager Les Snead don’t get along.

After the segment was over, Cowherd revealed that Breer had told him a rumor about Harbaugh coaching the Rams was “a very real thing”:

Jeff Fisher replacement: Who fits the bill?

by Evan Lovett

The writing is not only on the wall, but it’s penned in Sharpie — a Jeff Fisher replacement isn’t an option, it’s necessary.

Only six of his 22 seasons as a head coach have ended with winning records or playoff appearances. He has 31 wins and 44 losses in five seasons with the Rams.

He may or may not be in a rift with his GM, according to a report from the LA Times.
