The 34-year-old former defensive end with the Cowboys, Giants and Ravens discusses the behavior of Giants wideout Odell Beckham Jr. and the Rams' decision to extend coach Jeff Fisher's contract.
RYAN ASSELTA:How important is it for Odell Beckham Jr. to play under control?
CHRIS CANTY: When the coach [Ben McAdoo] comes out and says your control during games is an issue and then the quarterback [Eli Manning] comes out and says it's an issue, it's an issue! The onus is on the organization to force him to accept some level of accountability and fix this attitude. I would be surprised if they don't sit him down if these antics continue.
RA:Let's talk about the Rams. Here's a team that's 4--8 [through Dec. 4]. Then the news comes out that coach Jeff Fisher has been given a two-year contract extension. Does this surprise you?
CC: It does. I just want to know who Jeff Fisher's agent is because maybe I need to hire him. That guy is getting him paid for limited production. When you look at Jeff Fisher's coaching record, he's only had six winning seasons over the course of 22 years of coaching, and none of those were with the Rams. Look at their record over the past four years: 7--9, 6--10, 7--9 and now 4--8. It's unbelievable. I guess with the team's transition from St. Louis to L.A., they want to keep some type of continuity with the coaching staff, but you've got to have some type of production on the field and right now Jeff Fisher's production is lacking.
RA:And he's upsetting one of the greatest Rams of all time, Eric Dickerson [by saying he banned Dickerson from the sideline for criticizing the Rams].
CC: How can you tell Eric Dickerson to stay away? I don't understand that.
