I know special teams can win or lose a game. I know they're important. But nothing about a special teams coach being hired (or promoted) gets my blood flowing. Sorry. I guess I never thought Mike Stock was the problem. He was fine in 2007 when he had Tracy White and wasn't using guys called up from the practice squad in the middle of the season. I really think Thompson left Stock out to dry in 2008.
