Jeff Fisher Tears Up Discussing Firing by Rams: ‘It’s a Tough Memory’ | Bleacher Report

He’s a very tender fellow. In fact, I believe he squeezed out about 7-9 tears. He was handed a tissue, which he dropped, and was later picked up by former Rams C Tim Barnes.

These kids and their video games. I always like to provide a few links from the other side of the fence. Let’s hope these comments wind up on a bulletin board in the LA locker room.

Daily Dose: Talib is L.A.’s defensive difference maker entering the playoffs | Rams Official

This about says it all:

“The team defensive statistics that show just that are pretty remarkable. In the games in which Talib started in weeks 1-3 and 13-17, the Rams pass defense surrendered a passer rating of 74.5 (third-best in the NFL) and 10.4 yards per reception (seventh-best).
