Good morning, Los Angeles Rams’ fans, and happy Monday to you! We haven’t had a Monday feel this good in a long time. The Rams solidified some stability for the next few years by signing Jeff Fisher to an extension yesterday. You can say buh-bye to any concerns of Jared Goff’s development. This extension couldn’t have come at a better time! And despite losing to the Patriots, the Rams offense was able to move the ball efficiently enough to put up 10 points yesterday. Not too shabby!

It’s not all about winning though. It’s about going out there, giving it your best, enjoying a few orange slices with your pals, and being a good sport about it, regardless of the outcome. There’s always next week.

But, until then, here are a few links from yesterday that’ll help kick off this highly spirited Monday. GoooOOOOooooo Rams!
