Rams are interesting to watch in that IMHO they show that coaching does matter.

I am not saying they are great or will keep winning ...
but the difference in that team now and under Fisher is glaring.
Fisher just sucked the life out of that team with his behavior and insanely bland brand of football.

I think so many long time coaches get caught up in the habits that have no real rationale for other than some historical attachment.

Conservative repeated processes can definitely lend to long term mediocrity to above average periodic performances but they can certainly also be carried too far to the detriment of creativity and missing opportunities for anything that falls outside that pattern -- square peg round hole thing

Rams offense has looked decent the first few weeks. If they can just get that going they'll start to be a respectable NFL team.

Fisher was a Lesser Cowher IMO.

Eh I'm not so sure. Give Cowher and Fisher the same teams and I bet Cowher coaches circles around him

Cowherd was bullheaded but could spot football talent and build a team that would play hard
Fisher is just a tool

Los Angeles spent two decades on the NFL sidelines. Then, within the span of 12 months, not one but two teams announced that they would move to L.A.

If the more than 13 million residents of the greater Los Angeles area are thrilled to finally have multiple NFL options, they have a funny way of showing it.

Photos posted online from the Los Angeles Rams’ first two home games of this season — the team’s second back in the city — showed what looked like a half-empty Memorial Coliseum. A little more than 12 miles away, the Chargers’ inability to fill the seats in their first home game raised a big red flag.

This wouldn’t have been shocking — the San Diego Chargers frequently played to empty seats — if it weren’t for the fact that the team’s temporary home is a Major League Soccer venue, the StubHub Center, with a capacity of just 27,167, compared with the average NFL stadium capacity of a little more than 69,000 in 2017. Perhaps even more worrisome is whether the Chargers will be able to fill their planned new stadium in Inglewood, which will hold 70,240. In the Chargers’ debut game, the crowd was apparently very loud, but not all of the noise was for the home team: Many of those cheers reportedly came from the visiting Miami Dolphin fans, at least according to Chargers’ quarterback Philip Rivers.

This lack of apparent enthusiasm has even sparked grumblings that the team might be forced back down the 405 to its old home in San Diego. But lost in the hoopla of this — L.A. fans don’t just give their devotion, teams have to earn it — is that the Chargers’ problems are masking a bigger problem across town. As it stands now, the Rams are on pace for the biggest season-to-season drop in average attendance of any NFL team in 25 years (among teams that didn’t change stadiums). And it’s not even close.
