    Clayton on Linehan

    Scott Linehan, St. Louis Rams
    What he has going for him: Linehan is a bright offensive mind who does well no matter what quarterback he works with. Gus Frerotte had a strong year with Linehan in Miami. Culpepper had a career year with Linehan in Minnesota in 2004. He takes over an offense that should easily average 25 more points a game. He's got three receiving options -- Torry Holt, Isaac Bruce and rapidly developing star Kevin Curtis. He has a power back in Steven Jackson. His offensive line is solid. And he made a wise hire in Jim Haslett as defensive coordinator, giving Haslett the freedom to bring a staff and his system to the Rams.
    The biggest issue: Linehan might be forced to totally rebuild the defense, a very difficult thing to do. Adam Archuleta, Damione Lewis and Ryan Pickett are free agents. The team is extremely thin at safety. The cornerbacks were banged up last year. The linebacking corps has been undergoing constant change for years. The Rams should be able to score points, but if they can't stop anybody on defense, they will struggle to win games. Linehan also has to develop a solid backup behind Marc Bulger. If Bulger gets hurt, the Rams lose their firepower.

    Thanks for the info. Except it really didn't say what he thought of him.
