The Associated Press reports former St. Louis Rams head coach Dick Vermeil doubts dirty tricks prevented the team from winning the Super Bowl in 2002 versus the New England Patriots.

Elizabeth Merrill, of the Kansas City Star, reports former Kansas City Chiefs head coach Dick Vermeil has taken exception to critics who feel current head coach Herman Edwards is too conservative offensively. "The system's the same," Vermeil said. "I don't think they're not trying to score, you know? I know the coaches. I've talked with them. They've had some pass protection problems, and that limits you some. And sometimes there's a little different approach to using the same scheme. But I think they'll hit a happy medium, a very pleasant medium with the offense. It'll be very efficient."

Elizabeth Merrill, of the Kansas City Star, reports former NFL coach Dick Vermeil believes Kansas City Chiefs offensive coordinator Al Saunders will end up being a head football coach somewhere.

And I think someone, one of these so-called geniuses in the National Football League, is going to recognize that. We've got a lot of guys in positions that are scary."
