Bill Coats, of the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, reports St. Louis Rams DT Jimmy Kennedy is happier these days now that defensive line coach Bill Kollar has moved on. "It's a different environment," Kennedy said. "When you love coming to work every day, it just makes your job that much more fun." His play didn't support his status as a first-round draft choice, due at least to some degree to his oil-and-water relationship with the leather-lunged Kollar. "I'm not bashing the guy, because I know what he was trying to get out of me," Kennedy said. "But his teaching technique isn't for everyone." New defensive coordinator Jim Haslett has been happy with Kennedy so far. "The guy works hard, and he has more speed than I realized. He's smart, he doesn't make a lot of mistakes, and he listens, said Haslett. He's going to be a heck of a player." Nose tackle is a new position for Kennedy and the learning process for him is well underway.

Mark Gaughan, of the Buffalo News, reports Buffalo Bills defensive line coach Bill Kollar was one of two assistant coaches invited to address the league's powerful competition committee about the state of holding calls in football. That's a good indication of how respected Kollar is around the league. Kollar said one of the big conclusions from the video sessions with the competition committee is the officials need to be reminded they need to see "the totality of the play." "The big one is if a defensive lineman goes to the ground, they always seem to call that a hold, and sometimes it isn't holding," Kollar said. "To call that holding, they told the officials they've got to see the whole play."
