    Jeff Fisher is a moron, apparently.

    I see or hear it almost every day.

    From sportwriters on the internet...

    From fans on message boards...

    From radio commentators...

    From TV "talking heads"...

    The theme is consistent, even if the words vary.

    The Rams have a lot of talent, if they only had a QB.
    The Rams need to use one of their first round picks on a QB.
    You need a franchise QB to win, which is why the Rams will continue to be mediocre.
    The Rams will continue to struggle until the Sam Bradford era ends.

    I don't mind being in the minority, but the wave of opinion seems so strong.

    Maybe I'm wrong.

    Maybe the fact that Sam had really good numbers before his injury is just an anomaly. Maybe the Rams need an emotional leader, rather than a stoic technician.
    Maybe Sam just lacks that "it" factor.

    When these thoughts occur, I remember one seemingly key fact.

    Jeff Fisher thinks the Rams have their franchise QB in Sam Bradford.

    But, given the number of media experts and knowledgeable fans that disagree, there is only one way to reconcile everything.

    Apparently, Jeff Fisher is a moron.

    He's a lucky moron, mind you. I mean, how else would he manage to build a career as an NFL Head Coach, and even take a team to the Super Bowl?

    But only a moron would continue to believe something that so many people who really know football disagree with.

    Is there any other conclusion that can be drawn from the facts? I mean, it can't be that all of those media types and fans are just uninformed people talking out of their posteriors, right?

    It must be that Jeff Fisher is a moron.

    Re: Jeff Fisher is a moron, apparently.

    This thread is pretty moronic, if you ask me. Does taking Matt Leinart make Ken Whisenhunt a moron? Does taking Jason Smith make Spags a moron? Does taking Mark Ingram make Sean Payton a moron? Just because a guy falls in love with a prospect that doesn't work out does not make that man a "moron". Sam may or may not be the answer, but for no certain reason is Fisher an idiot for staying or leaving with Bradford. Guys have been wrong 10 million times before and will continue to be wrong, no matter what everyone around them is saying...

    I didn't.

    You're not very good at analogies, are you?

    You've given three examples of coaches who drafted college players who did not work out.

    That has absolutely nothing to do with Fisher's relationship to Bradford.

    Fisher did not draft Bradford. Rather, after being his head coach for 2 years, he's decided that Sam is good enough to be the Rams franchise QB going forward (and, consequently, the Rams won't draft a QB to immediately replace Sam).

    Nobody can know the future, obviously (duh).

    But all the people who are asserting, with great certainty and conviction, that Sam is NOT the answer are, in effect, asserting that their opinion is more rational and more informed than Jeff Fisher's.


    EDIT: As I re-read your post, I'm starting to think that maybe you just didn't get that my entire first post was sarcastic (if so, serves me right for not using sarcasm font, I guess.)

    Bingo!

    Fact remains when good qbs play for bad teams they get more wins. Case in point Cards, with Warner as starter they have multiple winning seasons even reach superbowl. Denver Broncos go from 12-20 with orton and tebow to 26-6 with Manning.

    I know teams and circumstances all vary. Bottom line is even RG3 wouldn't get us over top. Heck Vince Ferragamo worst rated QB (4th) got Rams into Superbowl. Hopefully with favorable circumstances Avenger can emerge as the I told you so Clanner, until then the outset of my reply.

    Re: Jeff Fisher is a moron, apparently.

    I'm not really sure what the purpose of this post is. Everyone on this board knows Fisher's opinion of Sam. We do this dance every couple of months. Do we need to do it again? All we're going to get is 7 pages of the "pro Sam" camp arguing Sam's points and the "draft a QB camp" arguing against said points until it gets personal and the thread gets locked. Divisive thread is divisive.

    Re: Jeff Fisher is a moron, apparently.

    Ok, I'll sum it up this way.

    If in his support of Bradford, Jeff Fisher said, Sam Bradford would be a Superbowl QB one day, then technically, you can not call him a moron until Sam retires.

    There..........now we have several years before we have to answer this question.

    I've read too many comments cavalierly declaring that we don't have a QB, so I responded. Anyone finding my comments too divisive can simply move on to the next thread.

    You have an uncanny ability to miss the point.

    I think someone is steaming and using Sam Bradford as chum.

    It would be silly to say the a Rams don't have a QB. They just don't have a particularly successful one.
