Jeff Fisher faces uphill climb to 7-9, well, you know

The Rams got embarrassed on Sunday at the Superdome, surrendering more than 500 yards of total offense in a wipeout win for the Saints.

For a team that hangs their coach's Oakleys on the defense, it was a decidedly bad look at a time when there's legitimate reason to wonder if Jeff Fisher is running out of time.

Remember, this is the same Fisher who infamously stated on Hard Knocks in August that he wasn't going to go 7-9, or 8-8, or 9-7 (or even 10-6!). He chastised players for behavior he believe represented "7-9 bull----." It acted as Fisher's public statement of intent.

Well, as the calendar sets to turn over to December, the Rams are staring at an uphill climb to, well, bull----.

Los Angeles currently sits at 4-7 with a trip to Foxborough to play the Patriots up next. Good luck with all that. Dates with two NFC powers follow: at home against the Falcons and on the road in Seattle. A 7-9 finish might represent a grand achievement at this point.

Meanwhile, frustrations boiled over on the sidelines after Mark Ingram scored the easiest touchdown of his life on Sunday.

First, the score:

And now, the fallout between Fisher and defensive coordinator Gregg Williams, whose Bountygate revenge game went over as well as Train's Led Zeppelin cover album:

After the game, Fisher provided some insight into the conversation.

Hey, at least Jared Goff threw three touchdowns. The Rams gotta take the positives where they can find them these days.
