|After Dismal Start, Rams Coach Keeps it Positive
|ST. LOUIS (AP) -- In the St. Louis Rams' first game under Jeff Fisher, they looked much like the team that's gone just 15-65 the past five seasons.
Good thing there's almost a month for their new coach to iron out the rough spots.
Fisher was pleased with the effort in Sunday's 38-3 preseason-opening loss at Indianapolis.
He noted the offense moved the ball well, too, until Steven Jackson and Sam Bradford called it a day after two series and the Rams trailing by a touchdown.
The defense played catch-up all day after allowing a 63-yard touchdown on a dump-off pass by rookie Andrew Luck on the Colts' first snap. The Colts doubled the Rams' output of 215 yards and were 11 for 15 on third down.
Fisher said he may have handicapped his team by limiting play selection, noting the Colts showed more of their game plan. Fisher promises more options in Week 2 of the preseason at home against Kansas City on Saturday night.
