    Wow, could you imagine somebody saying that about the Rams DT's??????

    Me neither.

    You know the more I think about this "potential" Jenkins trade the more I think about the Saint's under Hasletts regime. I remember when he had the "lunch bunch" Grady Jackson and Norman Hand. I remember those two big boys sucking lots of wind and just sucking period. I think the following year (my memory, not so good) they were gone. I'm not so sure Haslett would be very quick to sign up a tub'o'lard that eats space and just about everything around him. I think that if the price is too high the Rams will fan trading w/ Carolina and opt to draft a more athletic DT. I don't see them (Rams) sinking in a lot of time, money and draft picks into Jenkins, unless they are convinced Jenkins will be in shape for training camp.

    I could be and often am wrong though.

    The problem with the Haslett hybrid in St. Louis is the lack of sizable (and quality) LBs. He had 250-260 lb. LBs running out of his ears in Pittsburgh.
    In a 3/4.

    He coached a 4/3 in N.O. both as DC and as head coach.

    And he chose smaller LBs for the Saints. Those big LBs don't fit a 4/3.

    And, he drafted 5 DTs in N.O. ... the largest was 315, and their avg. weight was 310.

    All indications are, Haslett prefers the mobile 4/3 type NT for a 4/3...and he has coached the 4/3 more than the 3/4.
