Fisher built an excellent special teams unit with Coach Fassel and his defense was good too. He drafted Gurley, Donald, Goff, Ogletree, Havenstein, Johnson, Zuerlein, Hekker, Cooper, and other key players. Unfortunately, he could not install an effective offensive scheme. Lack of offense ended his tenure with the Rams. McVay was the perfect choice to take the Rams to the next level, with much help from Coach Fassel and Phillips.
The RAMS are resting most of their starters Sunday for the 49ers game.
DT Aaron Donald also will not play. Jared Goff and Todd Gurley not playing also means LT Andrew Whitworth and C John Sullivan will not play. Sean Mannion is Goff's backup; Malcolm Brown would be in line to get the bulk of the carries in Gurley's place.
