    NFL.com on Cam Cameron

    NFL.com Analyst

    RAM TOUGH
    As more time passes, it is sounding as if Chargers offensive coordinator Cam Cameron is gaining ground on Dolphins offensive coordinator Scott Linehan in the race to become the next head coach in St. Louis.

    People around the league believe that, if Linehan had been the Rams' selection, he would have closed out the process over the weekend. But it has lingered, allowing Cameron to impress Rams officials more and more.

    Cameron's hiring makes sense because he would be able to deploy nearly an identical offense to the one St. Louis now runs. Linehan's would take a bit more of an adjustment. But the process is expected to be completed by the end of the week, maybe sooner.

    Right now, the Rams are wrapping up their second round of interviews in Los Angeles with Linehan, Cameron and Bears defensive coordinator Ron Rivera, who now seems a longshot to land the St. Louis job.

    In his first two years as the Chargers offensive coordinator, San Diego ranked 22nd and 31st in points scored as well as 30th and 27th in yards. Granted the last two seasons have seen a turnaround, but Cameron has the best RB in the league, arguably the best TE in the league, a very good QB in Brees, and has yet to produce an offense that has ranked in the top ten in either category. The Chargers offense hasn't sucked by any means, but they're not exactly putting up world-beater kind of numbers either.

    If we pass up on Rivera, we will regret it for a long time.

    Not a very strong argument. I would hope our requirements for a head coach is that he's done more than not suck lately.

    Nick, maybe I'm reading you wrong, but I have to disagree with this statement. The Chargers were ranked 3rd and 5th in scoring offense in the past two seasons.

    Yeah, as it turns out, I was mistakeningly looking at defensive ranks.

    Heh...

    heh...

    heh...

    D'OH!!!

    The premise remains the same, though. The Chargers ranked 20th/16th in points and 16th/14th in yards in Cameron's first two seasons as OC, and have had a turnaround, but not to the level I would have expected considering the talent on that offense. They're scoring more, but their yardage remains slightly above league average. There could be a number of reasons as to why that is, but if I'm trying to decide about which offensive production I'd rather take, I'll take the '02-'04 Vikings under Linehan. Top ten three years in a row in BOTH categories.
