The Jeff Fisher chronicles continued this weekend as he was in St. Louis, according to multiple reports, to meet with Sam Bradford and tour the Rams facilities. He reportedly has official offers from both the Rams and the Miami Dolphins and is expected to choose this week between the two offers.
Miami is an enticing job, but Fisher’s seems to me to be more of a midwest type of guy, and the NFC West is kinder than the AFC East.
If Fisher chooses St. Louis, which is my guess, it sets up beautifully for Sam Bradford. Bradford will have 4 major things going for him:
- No expectations
- His health back
- A coach who really knows what he’s doing on both sides of the ball
- Most likely a great receiver tandem with Brandon Lloyd and Justin Blackmon (assuming the Rams get him at the top of the draft.)
I’m not saying you get Bradford in the first round or anything crazy like that, but he should be set up nicely for a bounce-back and especially if the Rams get Fisher.
In other coaching news, Brad Childress is back in the game. (You know him, the Tony Kornheiser look-alike coach who begged a guy from Mississippi to come to Minnesota and play QB wearing #4) . Chile is interviewing with the Bucs on Monday. He seems like a good fit there, as long as he stays away from Hattiesburg…
