Odds are this will will not be a replay of Jeff Fisher and his remarkable dysfunction or overwhelming underachieving. The Rams have pushed all the right buttons, from hiring McVay, to an offensive centric draft, and engineering what might be a season changing trade with the acquisition of Sammy Watkins from the Buffalo Bills.
