Reports from ESPN have Jeff Fisher headed to St. Louis to take over as head coach of the St. Louis Rams. The Rams have a long way to go, but I think they have the right guy to get them there.
I love what this means for Sam Bradford, as a I wrote here, and think Fisher will get the Rams offense turned around fairly quickly. Which direction he goes in the draft will be extremely revealing of the area he feels needs the most improvement. Many “experts” have them targeting Justin Blackmon and possibly moving back with a team needing RG3 and still adding a WR if they move back. If that’s the route they choose to go that only helps Bradford more.
Remember, the Rams were many people’s pick at the beginning of the year to win the NFC West, and last year they fell1 game short of the playoffs. There’s talent on this team, but they were miserable this year due to some key injuries and an offensive line that could not protect whoever they ended up starting at QB.
I think that Jeff Fisher brings this team back to respectability this year and they finish short of the playoffs at right around .500. Bradford should be a solid #2 QB if his line can protect him and Brandon Lloyd and mystery rookie will be WR 2/3.
Stay tuned to see what Miami does now that their #1 option is headed elsewhere.
