Here is the kind of coaching addition/change I wouldn't mind seeing--from ESPN Insider/Mortenson, so can't be linked:

Quote:
For instance, I'm told that two of their most-valued assistants offensive coordinator Cam Cameron and offensive line coach Hudson Houck both have contracts that expire at the end of this season. They'll be free agents.

Houck arguably might be a greater asset. A line coach is often the backbone of an effective offense, the guy who molds the least athletically talented unit of a team to the point that the most-gifted players such as the quarterback, running back and receivers can put the ball in the end zone.

Houck may have produced more Pro Bowl linemen in his 21-year-history than any other position coach in the NFL, but his work this season with basically a bunch of no-names and no Pro Bowl blockers may be his best yet. It has brought adulation around the league from his peers and front office executives.
The guy has taken a line with only one returning guy from last year, added two vet yeoman players and a 3rd round center and 7th round RT and come up with an OL that has only given up 19 sacks.
