Rams coach Jeff Fisher, when asked how close DE Robert Quinn is to being the guy from 2014: "He's there. He's back. But our opponents understand that, too. So when Robert lines up and there's a tight end next to him, and he's chipping or the back is chipping before he goes out, they understand that. They're trying to neutralize his rush skills.
