Rams Hire Jeff Fisher: Fan Approval Poll

Jeff Fisher will be the head coach of the St. Louis Rams.

I forgot that it has been less than two weeks since the St. Louis Rams ended their lost 2011 season. It's not one most fans will remember, nor should they, except for the whole historical lesson thing. A new era started officially for the Rams today, with the news that the team hired Jeff Fisher to be their next head coach.

It was the right move. They needed an established, experienced guy who knows how to get the most out of his players. Fisher may not have a Super Bowl ring, but he's coached team through turmoil and transition in an effective manner. As 3k pointed out earlier today, the Rams, and owner Stan Kroenke, made a statement today.

It was exactly the kind of statement they needed to make. Fans have been alienated by years of bad football. Just as people started to return to the Dome after a surprise 7-9 run in 2010. The team had to buy up unsold tickets in order to avoid a local blackout in their final game of this season.

There's a great big elephant in the room still with the Rams stadium issue and a stadium project awaiting a team in L.A. I'm not so naive to think that a move can't happen. Nevertheless, I have to tip my hat to the new administration at Rams Park, committed if silent ownership and a savvy front office focused on making deep, lasting connections with the fans.

On another note, I want give a big thanks to our community here at Turf Show Times. We've grown exponentially in recent weeks, and I'm really excited about the year ahead, especially free agency and the draft, which long timers here will tell you we cover left, right and upside down. Be sure to sign up for a membership on the site. Spout off in with a Fanpost.

And I know the social media thing isn't for everyone, but I hope you'll follow us on Twitter and like us on Facebook. I plan to do some big things on those two platforms that link directly into our community here.
