    Youngblood and yound blood

    I saw this quote from Bernie over at his site.
    I stay in touch with Jack -- he's one of my all-time favorite people, and I made a presentation to help get him into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.

    He is a HUGE C. Long fan. He called Shaw the week of the draft and said whatever you do, draft this kid, because he'll be a special player.

    So Youngblood has taken a vested interest in him.

    -B
    First, let's get this out of the way.....Jack Youngblood's presence in the HOF is due to 7 PBs, 5 All-Pro selections, roughly 150 (unofficial) sacks, and a Super Bowl played on a freakin' broken leg;......not a Bernie Miklasz presentation. But that's just my opinion, of course.


    Now, on to the bigger picture: Why has Linehan not brought Youngblood in to work with Long? Specifically him, but the whole defense in general as well?

    I guess the answer would be; 'cuz they already have a coach? Also, I would imagine Long's Dad is working with him as much as he can away from Ram camp. At least answering some of his questions about the NFL game. Also, sometimes a great player does not a great coach make. I don't know if this is true in Jack's case, but maybe he can't coach? Just a guess.

    I'm not talking about hiring the man on his staff. I'm talking about bringing in a guy like Youngblood for a day or two to work with , talk to, and be around these young guys. Most every team will do this at some point during the summer. The Rams even did it as recently as a week ago with Vermeil.

    Re: Youngblood and yound blood

    well i was under the impression that Mr Youngblood played the entire play-off games with a broken leg,but thats just splitting hairs..

    think id bring in Jackie Slater to teach Barron how to play RT first!

    screw just mentorin`.. make Jack Youngblood head coach!
    the other co-ordinators are supposed to be the ones who help with specialised skills and the HC are supposed to be the motivational leader of men...id challenge anyone who says Scott Linehan is better suited for that role than Jack!

    Jackie Slater coaches the Raiders O-line. Thanks for playing Jackie but you can stay in Oakland. Besides Barron is fine playing tackle after the play starts.

    I'd pay Youngblood just to hear him say "Cincinnatuh."

    I had a dream that Merlin Olsen and Fred Dryer spent a week in this years Rams camp to teach our defense how to "ACT" like we know what we're doing. .........must have been .....Yeah, it was a dream.
