Seahawks Vs. Rams 2012: Jeff Fisher showcases coaching brilliance

The St. Louis Rams pulled off one of the bigger upsets around the NFL in Week 4, defeating the Seattle Seahawks, 19-13. The win pulled the Rams even with the Seahawks at 2-2, and, of course, gives St. Louis the tiebreaker over Seattle in the division.

The folks over at Turf Show Times, SB Nation's St. Louis Rams blog, credit Jeff Fisher and his coaching adjustments for the victory.

In a game that that started out with the Rams getting literally gutted on the ground and from a scrambling QB, the Seattle Seahawks jumped out to an easy 7 point lead on their first possession, leaving many thinking, "here we go again". At times it looked like it was 11 on 9 with Seattle running at will.

But not so fast. The Rams made a crucial adjustment. Realizing the run defense was non-existent, CB Jenoris Jenkins was brought into the box as a QB spy, and an extra run defender. Yes, the Seahawks still somewhat gashed the Rams on the ground, but that strategy led to many stalled drives, or drives ending in 3 points versus 7. Pure brilliance.

Fisher will have to be at his best this week, as the Rams play host to the Arizona Cardinals on Thursday Night Football, in yet another NFC West battle.
