Eric Dickerson Says The Los Angeles Rams Offense is ‘Boring as Hell’ (Audio)
After the St. Louis Rams returned to their original home this past offseason, excitement was in the air in the Los Angeles area. But nobody expected the team to actually be good in their first year back. After all, they hadn’t had a winning season since 2003.
Then the season began and the team shocked everybody by jumping out to a 3-1 start. But the wheels have since fallen off and the team now sits with a 4-5 record and will likely end up with yet another 7-9 season. And one former player is not happy about it.
Former Los Angeles Rams running back and hall of famer Eric Dickerson is not thrilled about how this team is playing in its return back to L.A.
Dickerson sat down with SiriusXM NFL Radio and talked about how boring this offense is and how inexperienced the coaching staff is, minus head coach Jeff Fisher.
“Here is L.A., we have a defensive-minded coach, and we have an offense that is boring as hell,” said Dickerson. “They throw outs, they throw checkdowns, they spread the field every once in a while.”
“Then we have a quarterbacks coach – no offense – a quarterbacks coach, Chris Weinke, that’s coaching our No. 1 pick, that we traded all these draft picks for,” Dickerson said. “Show me the proof, show me what you’ve done, show me your history. What history do you have working with quarterbacks (and) developing quarterbacks?
“Then I could believe, and I just believe that they don’t have the right coaches and that’s what it comes down to: the coaching of a quarterback. You can’t just throw a quarterback out there and expect him to play well.”
No. 1 overall pick Jared Goff finally gets to take over the 31st ranked offense in the league as he is slated to start for the first time in his career.
