    As Rams coach Jeff Fisher nears completion of his second season in St. Louis, the future remains bright but the present remains a bit murky.

    Fisher, who survived 17 years as head coach of the Oilers/Titans despite working for an owner whose son-in-law recently said would fire people “at the drop of a hat,” remains firmly entrenched, despite a 7-8-1 finish in 2012 and a 5-8 record this year. Others may not be quite so secure.

    The grumbling about offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer began early in the season. While the team has at times shown flashes of real ability, even without quarterback Sam Bradford, the Rams have underachieved on offense. St. Louis currently ranks 27th in yardage and 20th in scoring.

    Defensively, it’s better but still far from perfect. Bernie Miklasz of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch recently pointed out that, in some respects, the pass defense is historically bad. While we’ve heard no chatter that Tim Walton could be out as the defensive coordinator after only one year on the job, Walton became Plan B after Rob Ryan bolted for the Saints after most other viable candidates had found their jobs for 2013.

    After they end up with 4 more picks in the first two rounds after trading down, they are going to have a TON of talent. I think Fisher needs another year there, because they are certainly on the right track.

    They're doing a great job of building talent up there in St. Louie. That RGIII trade was a Godsend for them. BUT, none of that matters much if they don't start getting some better play from the QB position. Bradford needs to step it up next season or they'll be going in another direction.

    They need their qb to be healthy. If they feel that Bradford isn't the guy, they need to find a qb because they have great speed and talent @ the WR position imo.
