    supposedly reported that we're close to signing Sehorn to another 1 yr contract. Didn't see it myself, but was informed by someone. No telling how much truth there is to this

    There was a blip I saw somewhere a little while ago about the Rams asking Sehorn to sign again but he wanted to remain retired.

          Jason, if this signing occurs, you have my undying apology. This signing would test the limits of my deference to charley and the coaches, but bottom line is that a great looking wife in the clubhouse might help. I cant think of why else we would go this route, but who knows, maybe he will redeem himself.

            Somebody has to inform team officials how the turf tastes.

              Fox Sports exploring pregame show options

              Andrew Marchand, of the New York Post, reports Fox Sports is still exploring options to be the host of their Sunday NFL pregame show. They are considering Pam Oliver and also giving some thought to the idea of having lead play-by-player Joe Buck lead the program. Fox Sports executives have considered two scenarios for Buck. Since Fox is very happy with Buck and Troy Aikman on its lead NFL broadcast team, executives have played with the non-traditional format of having Buck host from the site of the game he is calling. Fox also could stay conventional and move Buck into its Hollywood studios with Terry Bradshaw, Howie Long and Jimmy Johnson. If it did that, it would have to find a new lead play-by-player. Fox is planning to make a decision by the end of July or early August. James Brown, who was Fox Sports host, has moved to CBS to steer the NFL Today.

              Fox Sports gave us a C!

              19. St. Louis: Rookie head coach Scott Linehan shocked the NFL by taking two players with questionable character in LSU defensive tackle Claude Wroten and USC TE Dominique Byrd. However, both are very good players and Wroten, who tested positive for marijuana at the combine, could become a dominant player if he can stay clean. They wanted him and traded down in order to get him, too. Colorado TE Joe Klopfenstein was a very good pick and allowed them to trade Brandon mmm to the Chargers. Marques Hagans of Virginia will help the Rams as a punt returner. He played quarterback and has been compared to Antwaan Randle-El. There were concerns that Stanford's Jon Alston doesn't like to play football, and they took him with the 77th overall choice. Grade: C

              When evaluating linebackers, you must remember one important fact: You can't trust tackle statistics.

              Linebackers make lots of tackles, often more than 100 in a season. But some of those tackles come close to the line, while others occur after 15-yard gains. A linebacker who makes 50 tackles after six-yard gains isn't helping his team nearly as much as one who makes 30 tackles after two-yard gains.

              What's more, linebackers on bad teams register more tackles than those on good teams. Bad teams allow opponents to hold the ball longer, which means more plays, which means more chances to hit someone. The league leader in tackles is often a good defender on a lousy team, not a great defender on a great team. Case in point: Jonathan Vilma.

              At Football Outsiders, we differentiate between types of tackles. Stops are plays that prevent significant yardage; stops can be tackles, passes defensed, interceptions, or forced fumbles. (To qualify as a "Stop," a play must keep the offense from gaining 45 percent of needed yards on first down, 60 percent on second down, or 100 percent on third down.) Stop Rate is the percentage of a defender's tackles that are actually Stops. Defeats are tackles for a loss, turnovers, or plays that prevent a conversion on third or fourth down. We break Stops and Defeats down by run and pass plays, so we can see who is getting burned in coverage or leaving the field on passing downs.

              Of course, even advanced tackle statistics have their limits. Despite fewer tackle opportunities, life is a lot easier for Dan Morgan, playing behind the Panthers' line, than it is for Vilma in New York. Linebackers have different roles in different systems and unique responsibilities in the middle (Mike), on the strong side (Sam), on the weak side (Will), or in a 3-4 scheme. When the statistics break down, we use the information gleaned from the Football Outsiders Game Charting Project, which analyzed tape from every single game from Weeks 1-16 of the 2005 season.

              And while it was hard separating the 12th best linebacking corps from the 20th, picking the leader was a steel breeze.

              1. Steelers
              Bill Cowher has been developing excellent linebacking corps since the Gregg Lloyd/Kevin Greene days. Every year the Steelers lose a starter, but they just plug someone else in and keep going. Last season, they lost Kendrell Bell. Did you miss him? The Steelers didn't.

              Joey Porter is almost as good as he says he is, and that's pretty darn good. He had 13.5 sacks if you count the postseason, and he is also effective in coverage. James Farrior put up MVP numbers in 2004 but was content to let other players get the glory last season. Larry Foote is so underrated that he's overrated, but...
