Jeff Fisher is a defensive coach and he definitely knows how to coach up young defensive players and turn them into stars. Jevon Kearse, Albert Haynesworth, and Cortland Finnegan just to name a few. Now, in his second full season with the St. Louis Rams, Fisher has taken a defense that was a liability and laughingstock into one of the defense's to watch this season. The Rams defense is now the backone of the team and this year this defense will have to score more because if the preseason is any guide to what to come, the offense has a long way to go. This will highlight Chris Long, James Laurinatis, Alec Ogletree, and Janoris Jenkins.

If you let Jeff Fisher tell it, the St. Louis Rams have big plans for rookie wide receiver Tavon Austin.
