Jeff Fisher has chosen the Rams over the Dolphins, ending more than a week of speculation about where the former Titans coach would end up after taking the 2011 season off to recharge. It’s a good fit for Fisher, even though the Rams are coming off a 2-14 season.
The biggest advantage: quarterback Sam Bradford, the former No. 1 overall pick who has the makings of a terrific passer over the long haul. Not only that, but the Rams have the second overall pick this year, and they’re in good position salary cap wise.
Fisher had only six winning seasons in Tennessee and Houston, and his last playoff victory came in January, 2004. But he led his teams to at least 12 wins four times, and he has a more than respectable career record of 142-120.
