Los Angeles Rams head coach Sean McVay has made the disaster that was the Jeff Fisher era a distant memory.
Los Angeles Rams fans should have a long memory. Remember, it wasn’t so long ago that the only NFL team in LA was on the verge of becoming a full on dumpster fire about a year ago this time.

What a difference a year makes.
They were 3-4 heading home to Los Angeles, would win only one more game, and eventually turn the offense over to a rookie quarterback, who himself would go on to a seven game losing streak.
One year later, things in LA are considerably different.
Hey, Rams fans, 12 months isn’t so long ago, but it sure seems like it.
In a year and a day, McVay has the NFL pundits and fans in Southern California thinking payoffs and maybe an NFC West title. Whatever questions the experts and critics had about the rookie head coach and his second year quarterback have effectively been answered.
Give McVay the credit here.
He’s not at odds with the media, enabling a bad offensive coordinator, or finding ways to wreck a rookie QB before his career could really begin.
McVay is everything Fisher was not for a really long time, and that’s a winner.
In seven games, he’s likely salvaged not just a franchise in a signature NFL city, but a GM who needed something with his fingerprints on it to work. He’s re-charted a course that desperately needed to be, and turned around Goff, who was already being called a bust seven games in.
Bottom line, in McVay Les Snead can trust, and so can Rams fans.
Something Fisher could never have done.
