08:05 AM ET 04.02 | Believe it or not, it's football season. [On Monday Jeff Fisher] will walk into a roomful of strangers when the Rams begin their offseason conditioning program. ... Under the old collective bargaining agreement, the offseason conditioning program used to start in March, but it has been pushed back a month under the new accord. Fisher and the Rams are allowed to begin today because he is a new head coach -- at least a new head coach to the Rams. Teams with returning head coaches don't start their offseason programs until mid-April under the new system. For the next two weeks, the Rams' offseason program consists of two hours of workouts and two hours of meetings a day.

The Rams should have started their program last April for this season.

Yup. There's a heck of a lot of work to do. First up, find a defensive coordinator.

Do the players really need this stuff this far out?

New coach, new system and it will benefit the second year players who missed out last year because of the lockout.

Why should teams in the NFC West be concerned about St.Louis ? Two years ago (2010) Pete Carroll won in his first year as Head Coach with a 7-9 record, Jim Harbaugh then won with a 13-3 record in his first year (2011). Has Fisher even hired a new Defensive Coordinator?

Why should teams in the NFC West be concerned about Fisher and the Rams? In 2010 Pete Carroll won the division in his first year with a 7-9 record. Then in 2011 Jim Harbaugh won in his first year 2011 with a record of 13-3, is this a trend?

Fisher will be the DC for awhile, he has called the defensive plays in the past.
