Have to agree, they should have gone defense. That offense is plenty powerful and Jackson will be that much better this yr than in 05. Defense!!!!!

When you have Gus Frerotte as your QB you have to like to run the ball. He is a big passing coach (former Vikings OC) and squeezed more out of Frerotte than most would have guessed and helped Chambers have his most productive season.

i agree his vikes days as an OC were mostly passing attacks but he also didn't have someone with the talent of jackson and did have cpepp and moss. least this shows he could possibly balance both attacks when needed. guess i should have clearified my comment better.

I think he's a great fit for St.Louis. He's maintain that offense, and the thought would be that if he can hire a good defensive cood then that would improve as well. As the Viking cood he did favor the passing attack (who wouldn't take advantage), but he did have a highly effective rushing attack even with the RB he had to work with. And Miami did have a balanced attack even with Frerotte as QB. I think its encouraging to have a coach that's adaptable with the personnel he has. He'll get the most out of St.Louis offense, rushing and passing.

I could be wrong, but I think that the Vikes were amongst the rushing leaders during Linehan's reign. If he can build an O-line in St Louie like he had in Minnie their O should be top notch.

He should definately do well offensively with that offense in STL. Their problem is still going to lie on the defensive side of the ball. I mean STL has always had a high powered offense the past few years. Hurt with injuries this year, but they still haven't had a good defense.

Linehan seems like a good fit for that team. If he does bring in Tice to be the OC though, you are probably going to see a different mentality than the preivous regime.

Off the top of my head:

SJax stock goes up.
Bulger probably stays the same, maybe down a touch in terms of passing yardage.
Holt is the big loser in a decreased passing game. He's still a top ten WR, just more towards the middle now.

Has M.Martz been hired anywhere yet? He was really good for the Rams as a O.C. but not so much as a H.C.,too many "drunken uncle" calls like going for it instead of punting and going for 2pt conversions when it wasn't absoutely nessessary.He should prove to be an asset again as some teams O.C. though.

FF wise...in my 10 team redraft league...
1.Bulger in the late 2nd - late 3rd.{QB heavy scoring}
2.Holt and S.Jackson are both solid 2nd rders.

Martz hasn't been hired anywhere yet but if he doesn't get a HC job, he'll be a shoe in as OC somewhere.
