sure touchdown pass from Keenum
Former USC coach Steve Sarkisian plans to meet with Alabama officials this week about potentially joining the top-ranked Crimson Tides coaching staff as a special assistant to the offense, as first reported by Fox Sports and confirmed by ESPNs Chris Low.Fox Sports first reported Saturday that Sarkisian would reunite with former colleague Lane Kiffin following Alabamas 52-6 demolition of USC.Sarkisian, 42, was set to work this season for Fox Sports as a television analyst for games. Alabama officials declined to comment Sunday and wouldnt confirm that Sarkisians hiring would be announced this week, as Fox Sports reported. Sarkisian was fired last year during the middle of his second season at USC and later sued the school for wrongful termination, alleging discrimination because of his alcoholism and breach of his contract. Sarkisian and Kiffin were co-offensive coordinators at USC under Pete Carroll in the mid-2000s.Prior to returning to USC as head coach in 2014, Sarkisian spent five seasons at Washington as head coach. His overall head coaching record is 46-35. Jeff Wilson Jersey . Aduriz headed home Markel Susaetas cross in the sixth minute to open the scoring at San Mames Stadium. He bettered that with a long-range blast that went in off the goal frame in the 18th, and converted a penalty in the 72nd after Diego Mainz was sent off for fouling Aduriz with only the goalkeeper to beat. Jullian Taylor Jersey . In the lead up - which seemed to begin the moment Mike Geiger blew the whistle in Houston last Thursday night - the Impact rumour mill went into overdrive. The speculation went into meltdown mode, of the golden nugget variety. . In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford. Charles Haley Jersey .C. -- Chris Thorburn thinks one of the reasons the Winnipeg Jets have been successful under new coach Paul Maurice is that theyre playing together as a team. Frank Gore Jersey . Team physician Dr. Steve Traina performed the surgery Friday. Robinson was injured in a spill underneath the Nuggets basket during the first quarter of Wednesday nights loss to the Charlotte Bobcats. LOS ANGELES -- Although the boos started early in the first half, the chant took a bit longer to get going.It started in the west end zone and eventually rose throughout the Coliseum in the second quarter after another Los Angeles Rams drive foundered.We want Goff! We want Goff!Case Keenum heard it, and the sentiment frustrated him. Coach Jeff Fisher claimed he didnt hear the words, but they didnt change his mind about the best candidate to lead the Rams sputtering offense.I would submit that Case wasnt the reason we lost this game today, Fisher said after the Rams fourth consecutive loss, 13-10 to the Carolina Panthers.We just didnt make plays in all three phases of the game, Fisher said. Well circle our wagons with the coaches and look at the tape, but Im pleased with the way Case has fought, and consistently, week after week, Im pleased with Jareds progress.That would be Jared Goff, the No. 1 overall pick in the most recent draft. The Rams mortgaged a big chunk of their future while trading up to grab the California product, but Goff hit the halfway point of his rookie season Sunday without ever taking a regular-season snap for his new team.Keenum went 27 of 46 for 296 yards with one touchdown pass and one interception for the Rams (3-5), whose Hollywood honeymoon could be finished. Although theyve got one of the NFLs best defense, theyve erased many of the good feelings from their 3-1 start to their homecoming season with an offense that has scored exactly two touchdowns in three home games so far this season.When Keenum threw four interceptions in a loss to the New York Giants two weeks ago, Fisher aggressively defended the veteran quarterback. With Keenum playing a fairly ordinary game against the Panthers -- not terrible, not great -- Fisher indicated the Rams wont pursue a change before next weeks visit to the New York Jets (3-6).I dont think Cases play was indicative of raising the question, Fisher said.ddddddddddddYet something is clearly missing with the Rams offense, which was the NFLs worst last season as well.The Rams have only scored two touchdowns in their last two games, and there was a 115-minute, 41-second gap between them. Los Angeles scoreless streak reached 102 minutes, 12 seconds before Greg Zuerleins 25-yard field goal with 8:01 to play -- one play after Lance Kendricks dropped a sure touchdown pass from Keenum on the goal line.Keenum eventually led a solid drive and threw a 10-yard TD pass to Kenny Britt with 34 seconds left, but the Rams botched their onside kick attempt.Los Angeles outgained Carolina 339-244 despite having the ball for less than 26 minutes, but couldnt score enough to support a defense that largely dominated Cam Newton and the Panthers (3-5).The fans expect production, execution, points, Fisher said. I totally get that. Weve been through that before. I totally understand their position on that. I honestly didnt hear them root for Jared.Keenum isnt the only prominent starter having a forgettable half-season.Todd Gurley had 48 yards in another quiet game, although he broke his longest run of the season for 18 yards out of the wildcat in the first half. Last seasons offensive rookie of the year watched the Rams final series from the sideline while Benny Cunningham played in their 2-minute offense.Enough is enough, Rams guard Rodger Saffold said. We know we have to score touchdowns. The defense is out there playing a great game. Enough is enough. Its time to just work hard. We need to find a way to get it together or its going to be a long season.---For more NFL coverage: and ' ' '
