The relationship between the Los Angeles Rams and Eric Dickerson, one of the greatest players in franchise history, seemingly took a turn for the positive on Monday when news surfaced that embattled head coach Jeff Fisher had been fired.
The firing bred a general feeling of hopefulness among Rams fans, as Fisher was viewed as a major factor in the team's 4-9 start and 1-8 skid in the past nine games. As far as Twitter was concerned, though, #EricDickerson took center stage.
A rift between Dickerson and Fisher reached a climax with the Hall of Fame running back stating earlier this season that he would not attend a Rams game while Fisher was head coach. Now that Fisher is out of town, the Rams great will be back at the L.A. Memorial Coliseum soon enough.
Per usual, Twitter provided some levity to go along with these developments. Below are a few of the best reactions from Monday afternoon.
