ST. LOUIS (AP) -- Jeff Fisher has conveyed cool, calm leadership from the start of his first training camp with the St. Louis Rams. That can't hurt a team coming off a 2-14 season.
Quarterback Sam Bradford said after Friday night's practice that Fisher, rebuilding the franchise after a year away from the NFL, has not changed a bit so far. The Rams open Sunday at Indianapolis, also coming off a two-win season.
"I'm sure once we get into the regular season and the games count for real, I'm sure he might change a little," Bradford said. "His demeanor has been the same throughout."
The Rams were 4-0 in the preseason last year before crashing when the games counted. Fisher wants to win, but also wants to see how his rookies respond to game situations, wants to see veterans execute the playbook and wants to see a clean game.
"You stay somewhat basic," Fisher said. "You don't try to out-scheme somebody, you want to see them block a...

MLB James Laurinaitis
Laurinaitis is a good linebacker, but the linebacker franchise tag value (8.8 million in 2012) is inflated by the salaries of rush linebackers and thus non-rush linebackers rarely get tagged. After an offseason in which Curtis Lofton, Stephen Tulloch, and David Hawthorne got 27.5 million, 25.5 million, and 19 million respectively over 5 years, the Rams are unlikely...
Rookie Janoris Jenkins draws a vivid description of how he wants to play cornerback for the St. Louis Rams.
''I play like a ninja, an assassin,'' Jenkins said Thursday after practice at Rams Park. ''I love to be around the ball. I'm quick and physical. I just play the position with a chip on my shoulder.''
The 5-foot-10, 193-pound Jenkins has...
When the Indianapolis Colts and St. Louis Rams face off in Sunday's preseason opener at Lucas Oil Stadium, the matchup will showcase two franchises trying to rebuild the dominance that made each perennial Super Bowl contenders. While the Rams makeover hasn't been as drastic as that of the Colts, both squads feature new head coaches and personnel trying to establish themselves...
The second Sunday in the NFL will be a matchup of two teams that are expected to improve in the 2012 season. Although it’s preseason football the Rams and the Colts will be looking to impress on the field and show improvements from a dismal year ago.

Do the Rams finally have plan in place to protect Steven Jackson?
For what appears to be the first time since splitting time with Hall of Famer Marshall Faulk the St. Louis Rams appear to have options in easing the workload on running back Steven Jackson.
One year closer to the ominous wall of turning 30 as an NFL running back. Jackson remains the feature back but he might...
St. Louis: A slightly improved offensive line with Scott Wells gave Sam Bradford more time; after giving up 55 sacks a year ago, Bradford was comfortable under center, hardly using shotgun during his first couple drives.
Despite going 7-for-9, Bradford still makes high throws when rushed.
The backup line struggled in pass blocking for Kellen Clemens, nearly getting...

The real deal
Andrew Luck. Yes, he is as good as everyone said he was. And even better. I can only come up with, perhaps 4 teams that WOULDN’T, in a heartbeat, trade their QB for Luck, right now. And another 4 that would give it serious thought. He might not (yet) have the weapons around...
