In the latest development of the Jeff Fisher saga, the veteran coach made the trip to St. Louis on Sunday to check out the facilities and meet quarterback Sam Bradford. Fisher reportedly spent four hours getting the lay of the land here before getting in a car driven by Kevin Demoff and heading out. Sources are saying that Fisher hasn’t made up his mind yet, but I think it’s pretty obvious that things are looking good for us here in St. Louis. There is a report out that Fisher is concerned about the potential of the team moving to Los Angeles, but it doesn’t sound like that will be a deal breaker, especially since it isn’t likely to happen.
This all looks good, and another indication that Fisher could be coming is the former offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels has officially joined the New England Patriots, his former team. It has been reported that Fisher would not retain McDaniels if he took the Rams job, so the fact that the team let him go so quickly makes me believe that they plan on Fisher joining the team. I still firmly believe he will be announced as the next coach in the next few days, and I will be shocked if it doesn’t happen.
Fisher also reportedly already has ideas about who will be joining his staff when he does take a job, with names like defensive coordinator Gregg Williams (Saints DC) being included. I like Williams and what he can bring to the table, and it sounds like Fisher will have the resources to bring in his people if and when he gets the job. Things are getting interesting, and the next few days should say plenty about the future of this organization.
