After losing their proverbial ‘glass slippers’ in each and every season of the Jeff Fisher era, the St. Louis Rams (6-10 SU, 7-9 ATS, 8-8 O/U) will enter the 2015 regular season looking end the mistreatment they’ve gotten from their ‘ugly step-sisters’ in the NFC West to become 2015’s version of Cinderella.With that thought in mind, let’s take a look at why the Rams could surprise more than any other online betting ‘Cinderella’ contender this coming season.

Fisher masterminded a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles to trade Bradford for Philly signal-caller Nick Foles and I believe the switch could be a good thing for a Rams team in need of a shot in the arm, although I don’t necessarily think Foles is that much ‘better’ than Bradford skill-wise.

Over his last five seasons as a head coach, Fisher has not managed to top the eight-win plateau so I believe there’s a sense of urgency for Fisher to get the job done or possibly face getting the ax in spite of his pristine reputation.
