Rams Could Call Defense by Committee All Year
ST. LOUIS (AP) — Nearly three months since the St. Louis Rams lost their defensive coordinator, there’s seemingly no hurry for coach Jeff Fisher to define roles among the handful capable of filling the void.
Fisher believes if the game plan is sound, it doesn’t matter who makes the calls.
So far, the defensive job has been handled at various times by assistant head coach Dave McGinnis, secondary coach Chuck Cecil and linebackers coach Blake Williams, the son of suspended Gregg Williams, exiled indefinitely for his role in the Saints bounty scandal.
Linebacker James Laurinaitis said Thursday that he wouldn’t be surprised if the Rams go the entire season without having one man responsible for game-day play-calling.
