    What is the biggest change from 2011 to 2012?

    Its early, but this Rams team looks different from last year's squad. What is the biggest difference?

    Quite simple. Everything stems from the man in charge. The Rams are playing Jeff Fisher football. Which is a combination of the above poll.!

    Re: What is the biggest change from 2011 to 2012?

    I'm going with the new offense. It has been nothing short of painful to watch the Rams on offense the past 5 years and that is including the 2010 season. Aside from a few games there was just incredibly predictable playcalling, lacking any resemblance of creativity where something as miniscule as just getting a field goal felt like a big accomplishment. Against the Redskins, I felt Sam was going to lead the team down the field and score every time we had the ball. The players are mostly the same but it just feels completely different whenever the Rams get the ball. In 2012 the NFL is very much a quarterback driven league and I think The Rams have the best QB in the NFC West.

    I voted the confidence from the man in charge. It's also the attitude that's infected the whole team. I know quite a few Skins fans are convinced we're the dirtiest team in the league. Mostly it's sour grapes in my opinion, but I would much rather be dirty than soft.

    Pretty comical really, seeing as how Shanahan was the master at the cut blocking Oline at Denver, and the Redskins had their own bounty gate.

    Plus (homer alert), the Rams WERE jobbed by the officiating.

    What a bunch or of whiny sore-losers.

    As for the OT, Fisher's the difference. Not one smile during the presser.
    And Kroenke deserve's props for
    leaving him alone, (which is probably not the case in DC).

    I own one Rams jersey - SJ, mainly due to the Vegas connection, but if I buy another one, it'll be Finnegan's.

    For those who believe that multiple choices apply, what is the BIGGEST reason.

    Offensive philosophy. Being able to hone in on Bradford's strengths is crucial. He needs to build confidence with small short passes in the beginning of the game. Last year for a multitude of reasons that just never came to fruition.

    Re: What is the biggest change from 2011 to 2012?

    Confidence from leadership is far and away the biggest difference IMO. The attitude of this years team is simply on a different level from 2011. You can see it in the players eyes, and the way they are flying around the field making plays. There is no substitute for a coach that inspires, prepares, and motivates.

    Offense. Using the player personnel that they have and tayloring the offense to it has allowed them to score points. They're still allowing too many points, and if this were last years offense, they would be 0-2, not 1-1 because they couldn't score.

    This team CAN score, and that's the biggest difference to date.

    I agree.

    Its like, last year, Josh McDaniels was handed a package of ground chuck, and tried to make steak out of it.

    Brian Schottenheimer, on the other hand, sees the ground chuck and says, "let's make some burgers!" And you know what... they taste pretty good.

    The confidence that comes from strong leadership. That leader is owner Stan Kroenke. In his second year he blew up the old coaching staff and hired the coach he wanted. It all starts from the owner and he came thru big time with the Fisher hire IMO.
