Much has been made of the offseason acquisitions by the Detroit Lions, and the addition of Tony Scheffler may be the most unheralded.

New Broncos QB Tim Tebow brings increased ticket sales. Just not to his own team.
The Lions acquired QB Shaun Hill from the San Francisco 49ers in exchange for a seventh-round pick in the 2011 NFL Draft, reports The Sacramento Bee, citing league sources.
Matthew Stafford, the No. 1 overall pick in last year’s draft, did not post impressive statistics, but what he did do was provide the downtrodden club with some hope.
After interviewing for the Lions’ offensive coordinator job Monday, former Broncos wide receivers coach Jedd Fisch accepted a multi-year deal to become the offensive coordinator at the University of Minnesota.
The Tampa Tribune is reporting that Scott Linehan is a candidate to be the Buccaneers’ offensive coordinator. Linehan is one of a handful of candidates that the paper is reporting includes Chiefs offensive coordinator Chan Gailey, Browns offensive coordinator Rob Chudzinski and Eagles quarterbacks coach Pat Shurmur. Linehan, however, does not seem to be in a hurry to make a decision.
As some teams narrow their head-coaching search, the 49ers are doing the same with their hunt for an offensive coordinator. Former Rams head coach Scott Linehan is scheduled to interview with the 49ers for a second time today.
The 49ers will interview former St. Louis coach Scott Linehan and former Browns offensive coordinator Rod Chudzinski for its vacant offensive coordinator position.
Some things are so good they can’t be made up. This is one.
In the most ironic and fun factoid of the week, new Raiders head coach Tom Cable was a teammate and protected quarterback Scott Linehan at the University of Idaho in the 1980s.
So the Rams got on the board first, coming up with one more firing than victory. They fired Scott Linehan very early this morning — maybe even late Sunday night — and appointed Jim Haslett as the interim head coach.
The St. Louis Rams have fired Scott Linehan as head coach and chosen defensive coordinator Jim Haslett as their interim head coach.
Rarely are head coaches fired this early in the season. In fact, since 1970, it has happened only five times, and not once since 1989, when Raiders owner Al Davis fired his head coach Mike Shanahan after the team started 1-3.
No matter how many calls there are for Scott Linehan’s job in St. Louis, Rams management is determined not to fire its head coach this season unless the situation deteriorates and fans stay away from games.
After the season, anything is possible. But this season, the Rams preference is to wait.
