RAMS ARE RIGHT WITH JEFF FISHER
Tue, 17 Jan 2012 04:06 PM EST

The St. Louis Rams can at last exhale with news that Jeff Fisher has deal to come to be their head coach.

With all due respect to the other candidates the Rams respectfully contemplated, the organization needed to secure its top selection to proceed with trust. NFL lines

Replacing Steve Spagnuolo with a different unproven coordinator applicant was not going to give the Rams the trustworthiness they need to win above a doubtful St. Louis market. Fisher also stands an improved chance to make the Rams competitive on the area. His Tennessee Titans groups posted double-digit victory totals 6 times in his last 12 seasons, including as lately as 2007 and 2008.

Fisher is not the perfect candidate. NFL betting lines

Critics will handily disregard his five 8-8 seasons when they are saying Fisher posted only six winning seasons in 17 years. How good would 8-8 look to the St. Louis Rams after they went 10-38 under Spagnuolo and 15-65 since 2007? Even if Fisher brings incompetency to the Rams, the organization will be much better off exponentially.

The NFC West now has four head coaches with playoffs on their CVs. At their best, Fisher’s groups in Tennessee played with an evil edge on defense. They ran the ball on offense and still dominated to provide a co-MVP at quarterback in the latter Steve McNair.

We should anticipate Fisher to draw on his gigantic encounter in gathering a quality staff. Worries about his selection for offensive coordinator look valid. Les Steckel, the late Mike Heimerdinger and Norm Food were his coordinators in Tennessee. Fisher will need to get a coordinator to help quarterback Sam Bradford bounce back from a coarse, probably damaging second NFL season.

Fisher clashed with Vince Young in Tennessee. Bradford is simple to get along with, a coach’s dream. The stability Fisher plans should permit Bradford to grow from a solid base.

The Rams ‘ capability to beat out Miami reflects poorly on the Dolphins and their possession, particularly after stories emerged advising owner Stephen Ross wouldn’t be outbid. Similar stories circulated prior to the Dolphins dropped short in their pursuit of Jim Harbaugh last offseason.

Landing Fisher also shows enthusiastically on the Rams, who have got their own stadium problems and, as a result, can’t be particular of their long term viability in St. Louis. Fisher is a convincing coach. He has succeeded below difficult conditions, including when the Houston Oilers moved to Tennessee. He does not push back simply.

Fisher made the shrewd choice. He’ll be able to take part in the hiring of a CEO. That seems counter to the old ideal calling for groups to contract GMs, who then contract coaches. But smart coaches with Fisher’s knowledge and leverage smartly insist firmly on ensuring the right GM is in effect.

Pete Carroll, having accomplished the tough way in New England, took part in John Schneider’s hiring as General Manager in Seattle. The Carroll-Schneider relationship has worked well so far. The team has bought young talent which has fit well with what Carroll wants to do on the field. In San Francisco, the 49ers had already employed Trent Baalke as General Manager when they landed Harbaugh, but the 2 felt convenient with each other. They were also employed at approximately the same time, letting them start fresh collectively.

Fisher will get that possibility in St. Louis. We should expect the Titans’ Lake Dawson to appear as a leading applicant for General Maneger. Fisher worked with Dawson in Tennessee. Dawson is acquainted with the NFC West, having worked for the Seahawks during the Mike Holmgren years.

There’re no real negatives for St. Louis here based totally on the alternatives available to the team. The Rams were justified in firing Spagnuolo based simply on the 10-38 record. But they wished to find someone as good or superior. Fisher passes that test, but he’ll need much better players to win. Holding the second overall choice in the 2012 draft gives Fisher and the team’s next GM a lead.
