Experts Agree, Rams Future All About Jeff Fisher

Some of America's greatest minds got together to rank football teams and offer a single quip take on the season ahead for each one. Ok, so this is not exactly the Aspen Institute, just classed up power rankings. And what did this league of mostly ordinary gentlemen have to say about the St. Louis Rams? Let's take a look.

A selection of internet writing laziness:

Rich Gannon (CBS Sports/SiriusXM NFL Radio, 28): Three different OCs in three years for Bradford isn't exactly a formula for success.

Bob Glauber (Newsday, 30): It was time to go for Brian Schottenheimer in New York. But we see more positive impact on Sam Bradford. That and Jeff Fisher's arrival signal new beginning for franchise.

Alex Marvez (Foxsports.com, 27): Rams are off to good start in rebuilding under new head coach Jeff Fisher but still have long way to go.

Cris Collinsworth (NBC Sports, 31): Jeff Fisher, healthy Sam Bradford, and Chris Long coming off big year . . . surprise team?

Clearly, the Rams are not going to get many votes beyond the bottom four or five spots, but you can see the theme here is Jeff Fisher.

I know it's sort of hackey to just throw his name out there, but it does drive home the point of just how important he is to the team's future. I also thought the comment from Bob Glauber at Newsday about Schottenheimer was worth passing along. The more reports you see out of Jets camp this year, the bigger sense you get that his system was not the problem in New York.

Alright, here's some lunchtime discussion fodder for you: where do you rank the Rams among all 32 teams?
