Jeff Fisher's Versatility Could Be Good, Since The St. Louis Rams Can't Do Anything

I'll be honest: When I think of Jeff Fisher teams, I usually imagine the ones that ran the ball constantly, both with Eddie George in the early aughts and Chris Johnson later on. But there's good news, too—in 2004 and 2005, those very same Tennessee Titans passed the ball as much as any team in football! The only bad news for Sam Bradford (and Steven Jackson) is that all it took was for Fisher and company to finally run Eddie George into the ground, after as many as 403 carries in a season.

If it's any consolation—to the first, if not the second—once they did it, the immortal Billy Volek had a relatively impressive season, throwing 357 balls in eight starts and averaging seven yards an attempt.

If nothing else, it's probably much too soon to imagine the Rams' offensive identity—even if you ignore the fact that the identity of the Rams' head coach is still as much a question mark. Fisher could grind Steven Jackson's knees into dust or end up giving the ball to Kellen Clemens 500 times, and that's if the Rams end up with him at all.
