Just Days Before Game, Jeff Fisher Has No Idea Who The New England Patriots RB’s Are
After the New Orleans Saints dropped 49 points on them last week, the struggling 4-7 Los Angeles Rams will try their hardest to stop the New England Patriots at Gillette Stadium.
Pro-tip: One way to stop those pesky Patriots is to know who is actually on the team, which head coach Jeff Fisher had a hard time figuring out recently.
On Wednesday, Fisher was asked for his thoughts on the Patriots three main running backs and while he could name Blount, because he played for him once, he had a hard time naming the other two.
“Well, they’re all different,” Fisher said Wednesday, according to Zack Cox of NESN.com. “I have a place in my heart for LeGarrette, because I gave him a start, and I have great respect for him. He’s a big back, and he’s hard to get down. And as they rotate through, different guys play in different situations, and they do a good job with it. He knows where the ball’s going to go, and the guys are very, very disciplined.
“I’ve been impressed with Brandon and what he’s done out of the backfield. You’ve got to deal with him, in addition to Danny. You’ve got playmakers all around, so we have to play sound defense.”
Brandon and Danny? Interesting.
Special Teams player Brandon Bolden hasn’t touched the ball on offense since week 4 of the season, so no.
Wide receiver Danny Amendola is the lone Danny on the team, unless he was referring to Chargers RB Danny Woodhead, who last played for the team in 2013, so no again.
The Patriots are definitely winning this game by 30+.
