Seahawks vs Rams: 5 takeaways from Seattle’s frustrating loss

1 of 5

The Seattle Seahawks lost a very winnable game against the St. Louis Rams, and looked human for the first time in over a month.

The St. Louis Rams upset the Seattle Seahawks 23-17 to end a streak of 10 straight losses in In Seattle. The Seahawks lost a game they had no business losing, and likely have lost the No. 5 seed in playoffs with the loss.

This loss ended an NFL record streak of 62 games in which they’ve led at some point. The Seahawks came out flat, played poorly, and never figured out how to get control of the football game.

It is a disappointing loss, but not a crippling one. The Seahawks are still going to the playoffs, and they still have next week to get things figured out before the post-season tournament begins.

Here are 5 takeaways from today’s frustrating loss:

Jeff Fisher cannot be fired fast enough

Rams head coach Jeff Fisher is the very definition of mediocrity. His teams are good for 6-8 wins every year, but never any more than that.

Unfortunately, he’s also Pete Carroll’s kryptonite.

Other than their defensive line, the Rams are not a good football. The Seahawks are a championship caliber team. It makes no sense that the Rams beat Seattle twice this season, but they did.

The Rams would be a better team overall if they replaced Fisher with a more competent coach. They’d also have a lower chance of beating Seattle every season if that happened.

I think I speak for everyone in Seattle when I say that the Rams cannot decide fire Fisher fast enough.
