    St. Louis Ramsí Head Coach Jeff Fisher Says Team Will Set All-Time Sack Record

    by Anthony Blake

    St. Louis Ramsí
    Head Coach Jeff Fisher didnít take the job this offseason because he wanted this team to be mediocre. In fact, the Ramsí new man in charge has been making some lofty proclamations for what he desires from the defense with his new team.
    According to second-year defensive end Robert Quinn, Fisher has told the team that he wants to coach the defense that breaks the NFLís all-time sack total in one season by a club. That record is currently held by the 1984 Chicago Bears and their vaunted defense which Fisher was (oddly enough) a part of.
    The Rams tallied just 39 sacks in 2011 and the realist in anyone says that a season to break the Bears record of 72 is pretty much impossible. Only the 2006 San Diego Chargers even broke the 60 sack plateau accumulating 61 during that campaign. In todayís pass-happy NFL with rules favoring the offense more than ever, goals like these are nice, but fairly impractical. Both the Philadelphia Eagles and Minnesota Vikings tied for the league-high last year with just 50.
    What this does suggest is that the Rams have a great deal of confidence in the new configuration that they will trot out on defense in the coming year. The aforementioned Quinn will be in his second season while this yearís first rounder Michael Brockers will provide some presence inside on the defensive front as well. St. Louis also added Kendall Langford who figures to play inside and Chris Long will bookend a young and talented front four who should really get after opposing quarterbacks.
    Taking a team that finished 2-14, 22nd in the league in yards against, and in the middle of pack as far as sacks are concerned and turning them into the best defense the league has ever seen in one year is awfully presumptuous. Thereís no doubt Fisher doesnít lack for confidence however, and if his team embodies that attitude, there could be a newfound belief with the Rams that hasnít been present for quite some time.

    Well that headline is a tad bit misleading.

    Anyways, he forgot to point out that addition of Finnegan and Jenkins should help add a few sacks.

    The headline had me thinking that Fisher sent the front 4 to a local grocery store to bag groceries!

    They should put that goal on paper, statistics say that you are 80% more likely to try to reach a goal if you write it down.

    I am more concerned with the sacks and QB hits we allow. 55 sacks and 114 hits last season with the worst O-line in the league.

    "Attitude reflects leadership"

    Nothing wrong with talking up your young guns to strive to be the very best the game has seen.

    No team, or unit should ever strive to be the second best at what it does. Fisher is doing what a good coach does.

    Motivate.
