Not that worried - Fisher will bring discipline and improvement, but second go around coaches just don't have the same energy. Even at the end of his Titans run his teams were trending downward.
Shotty and GWillians are solid coordinators, but not all world or anything. I would like to see us solve that darn safety blitz he brings!!
They'll be a bigger challenge than the last couple of years, but not too worried.
Yeah I would have been worried if they had signed Hue Jackson. Jackson is one of the better offensive minds in football, I think. But Shottenheimer is just average. That's not a knock on him, average in the NFL is pretty damn good. I'm just not as worried about him as would be about Jackson.
I am still a little concerned about how things are shaping up for the Rams. Fisher is a solid coach and better than anyone they've had for a long time. They already have a good handful of talented players after years of early drafting. And now, with the 2nd pick and a franchise QB already on the roster, they are in a great position to add a ton more talent. They could turn their #2 over all and #33 over all picks into 4 or 5 good, ready to contribute players if they play the draft right.
Ultimately, a lot will depend on Bradford. If he gets healthy and goes back to being the rising star he looked like 2 years ago then the Rams will be in great position to turn things around. But if they trade their chance to get another top QB and Bradford continues to struggle then they could keep sucking for several more years.
Where it would get really interesting is if they decide to draft RGIII. Whether that would mean trading Bradford or keeping 2 top 2 pick QBs, either way would be interesting to watch.
