Jeff Fisher Has Some Not-So-Kind Words For Those Questioning The Rams’ Effort

The St. Louis Rams have a talented defense, a stud rookie running back and a couple of nice weapons on offense, so they probably should be better than their current 4-7 record. It didn’t matter today though, as they dropped yet another game, getting trounced by the Bengals 31-7. Whatever the issue is, do not blame or question the Rams’ effort because, if you do, head coach Jeff Fisher will tell you exactly where you can kiss him.

“Anyone who implies that it’s an effort issue, they can kiss my ass,” Fisher said after the game. Well, OK.

The win pushes the Bengals to 9-2 and rights the ship for a team who suffered back-to-back, devastating primetime losses. They’re currently in control of the two-seed in the AFC, just ahead of the Broncos, and look to be the favorites to secure a bye in the playoffs with the Denver trotting out Brock Osweiler as their starting quarterback for the foreseeable future.

If you’re looking for why the Rams have been so dreadful, look no further than their quarterback play. Nick Foles was benched last week after a half-season’s worth of poor play, only to see his replacement Case Keenum suffer a concussion and force Foles back into action. Foles did not respond well as he threw three picks, including an awful pick-six inside his own ten.
