With yesterday’s loss to the Atlanta Falcons, LA Rams head coach Jeff Fisher clinched his 11th losing season as an NFL head coach. On that same note, the Falcons have scored more touchdowns in Los Angeles than the LA Rams. The Falcons only played one game in Los Angeles, whereas the Rams have played six. And the icing on the poop cake that is the LA Rams is that their running back, Todd Gurley, who might be one of the best RBs in the game if his team was worth a damn, was recorded telling reporters that his team was running a “middle school offense.”
So if you’re an LA Rams fan, right now you’re probably thinking to yourself that Jeff Fisher needs to be fired. But who would they hire to replace Jeff Fisher? Well if you believe Albert Breer of The MMQB, the number one name on the list is Michigan’s Jim Harbaugh. Breer did an interview on Colin Cowherd’s radio show last Friday (before their game against the Falcons) to discuss the Rams extremely toxic situation. The interview itself was pretty pedestrian, mostly because he laid out everything that people could see with their own eyes, but the talk did end with a pretty big statement.
“By the way, Albert Breer on the way out said that Jim Harbaugh to the Rams rumor is a very real thing,” Cowherd said at the end of Breer’s segment.

Are the Rams even on Harbaugh’s radar? Probably. And what’s more is that the LA Rams probably want Jim Harbaugh. But the biggest question is whether or not Jim Harbaugh even wants to go back to the NFL. He’s got a really good thing going in Ann Arbor, MI and the fans really love how he’s turned the team around. Obviously the Maize and Blue want to see the Michigan Wolverines in the College Football Playoffs every year, but Harbaugh’s done a great job returning the Wolverines to the Top 10.
The upside for the Rams is that their owner, Stan Kroenke, is like mad rich. In fact, he’s one of the five richest owners in the NFL. So it wouldn’t be out of the question for Kroenke to offer an animal like Harbaugh $10 million a year to help bring back the sparkle of a team in arguably the biggest market in the NFL.
