View Full Version : Taking Stock: St Louis Rams

Jeff Fischer has history in Houston. He coached our Oilers when they left. He coached the Titans, a team in our division.

His coaching ability has been questioned (& defended) here many times. Now that he is outside our division, do we care anymore? I think it would be nice, to put our opinions on the line right now.

Let's look at what he's got in St Louis as far as talent goes & what we know of their FO to predict how he'll do over the next few years.

Are the Rams contenders next season? How long will it take Fischer to "turn it around" in St. Louis?

The Rams finished 2-14 in 2011 (& the second pick in the NFL draft).
-2010: 7-9 (a disappointing season)
-2009: 1-15
-2008: 2-14
-2007: 3-13
-2006: 8-8
-2005: 6-10
-2004: 8-8
-2003: 12-4

So it's been 8 years since that team has known success.

Talent wise, they've got Steven Jackson, Sam Bradford, Chris Long, & James Laurinaitis...... am I missing anything?

My opinion, he's going to need 4+ years to turn that franchise around.

what do you think?
