    Hey Jack. I've been a Rams' fan since you were drafted. Not that you were the reason I became a fan.

    Anyway, the 70's Rams playoff woes were a sore point with Carroll Rosenbloom, and the Mud Bowl was the last straw. What was the players' reactions to Knox's firing?

    That was a difficult time. We admired Chuck who was a great teacher and the man lived for the game. He remains one of the great influences in my life and career. But it was probably inevitable and we had to adjust and that meant dealing with Allen coming for a brief time before Ray took over. We played very hard for Ray so it was a good situation.
