There are many things that have given St. Louis Rams head coach Jeff Fisher a leg up through his time in the NFL. As a member of the 1985 Chicago Bears defense (perhaps the best ever), Fisher knows how the game is supposed to be played from a toughness and consistency perspective.
And as the head coach of the Houston Oilers/Tennessee Oilers/Tennessee Titans, Fisher also knows how to keep a team together through a franchise move. Fisher went through a couple of salary cap purges with the Titans, which explains his less-than-amazing 142-120 regular-season record, but there's no doubt the man knows what he's doing with a football team.
Of course, one thing gives Fisher an advantage that many -- through their own lack of awareness -- will never enjoy. For decades now, Fisher has sported the most impressive mustache in the game, and his new team -- the St. Louis Rams -- will honor Fisher's "lower-nose forestry unit" during the team's home opener against the Washington Redskins by handing out Fisher 'Staches to every fan before the game. This will allow Rams fans, who are not used to the competitive advantages of serious lip-fur, the ultimate opportunity to experience how a proper 'stache can positively impact their lives.
Fisher recently spoke with Dr. Aaron Perlut of the American Mustache Institute (an organization that has also honored Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers) about just what the 'stache has meant to him throughout his personal and professional life.
