    It might actually help because St Louis has always had a good oline with him

    Didn't we sacked them like 5 or 6 times when we played them. I know we knocked Jamie Martin out on a concussion that's when the rookie from Harvard tore us up at the end. But last year I think the Rams had a alright line not too much better than ours.

    Anytime you hire someone who has experience in role as opposed over a guy coming out of the booth to coach arguably our most challenged unit it goes down as a good thing in my book.

    Very true - in fact in the 2004 season St. Louis gave up 50 sacks compared to our 48 and in 2005 gave up 46 more (still far better than us!). That was with Orlando Pace at LT. That should give the "get a good LT and everything will be fine" crew pause for thought.

    Uhhh.. is upside the reason he is being hired? Guess I have to go back to praying for the O line.

    St. Louis sack problems could be linked to their scheme.

    When you throw the ball deep as much as they did, your bound to give up alot of sacks. Just look at Spurriers run in Washington

    I hope we can get Sherman, as he has a lot of experience and has been an HC in the league. It would serve Kubiak well to have someone else to discuss game management issues. However, I am willing to trust Kubiak in his hirers. Still sorry to hear that Dan Neal turned us down, he apparently has a pretty hard time getting around these days (his knees are shot).

    At first glance I hated this hiring, but there is one ray of light...

    Perhaps signing the O-line coach from the Rams is another attempt to lure Orlando Pace here?

    Pace signed a huge 7 year deal with the Rams last year. He's not going anywhere.

    What are you talking about? I never stopped praying. We need the entire congregation (sp?) involved.
