Los Angeles Rams’ Aaron Donald takes one last shot at former head coach Jeff Fisher

Updated: July 7, 2017

One of the most important Los Angeles Rams players is speaking out about new head coach Sean McVay, but at the same time taking a shot at former coach Jeff Fisher. Aaron Donald is trying to land a huge contract to hopefully make him a Ram for a long time, but he already knows the amount of intelligence the new coaching staff has compared to his previous years.

Via Rich Hammond of the Orange County Register, ( Aaron Donald Speaking) “I was itching my head about a play, a defensive play, and he came to me and said, ‘You’ve got to do this, this and this,’” Donald said. “I said, ‘Wow.’ I’ve never had a coach who knew what was going on the offensive side of the ball and the defensive side of the ball. He knows every single trick on both sides of the ball. He’s definitely a smart guy. There’s going to be a lot of good things coming.

I’ve tried to look up more Donald quotes expressing his passion for Jeff Fisher and the future, but there were very little. The era of Jeff Fisher is finally over folks, it’s Sean McVay’s team now to change the culture of the Rams. If Donald is already saying McVay knows more about football in general than Fisher, maybe Eric Dickerson was right. Back in December Dickerson told reporters that last years coaching staff did not improve Goff at all.

Via Ryan Wilson of CBS Sports: “I think this football team would do better without Jeff. That’s just my opinion,” he said. “He’s had five years to turn this team around and he’s had all losing seasons.” “One thing with me — If I say something, I stand by it,” Dickerson explained. “I will not go back to the games as long as Jeff Fisher is there. … I don’t have a vendetta against Jeff at all. I give Demoff credit for saying, ‘We want to try to get this issue straightened out, we want you to come back … you’re more than welcome to come back.'”

Throughout the Amazon Series “All or Nothing” it showed how much the players cared about Fisher and blamed themselves for the firing. It’s no doubt that Fisher was a class act the years he was coaching the Rams, but simply could not get wins. The organization cares about wins and should always. Thanks for the memories Jeff Fisher.
