    There's a rule of thumb around this neck of the woods. If you want us to write about something – tweet at us. We'll do it. Huzzah. Shout out to TJ for the recommendation on this little ditty.

    is doing a mighty fine job in 2016, his squad is 5-1 after all. has gotten a ton of well-deserving praise, but what about Scott Linehan?

    The Cowboys boasts the NFL's leading rusher through seven weeks, despite already having had their bye, for the second time in three seasons… and it's a different doing the rushing! That's remarkable!

    Someone who has shown belief in Linehan before will be against him this Sunday when the Eagles come to town – Philadelphia Defensive Coordinator Jim Schwartz. Scott Linehan served as the Offensive Coordinator for the from 2009-2013 when Jim Schwartz was their Head Coach.

    Detroit Lions Offensive Ranks (2009-2013) Points Yards
    2009 27th 26th
    2010 15th 17th
    2011 4th 5th
    2012 17th 3rd
    2013 13th 6th

    It's obvious that things really clicked for Linehan's Lions beginning in 2011, and that coincides with starting every game since then. When Scott Linehan has a competent under , he consistently puts together elite offenses.

    It should be noted that in 2014 (Scott Linehan's first year in Dallas… serving as the ) the Cowboys were 5th and 7th respectively in these categories. This guy knows how to run an offense.

    Jim Schwartz's Eagles is ferocious, and they boast what might be the best front seven currently in the NFL. He undoubtedly knows Scott Linehan very well having worked very closely with him for five seasons, Sunday is going to show the world who knows more than the other.

    Considering that Scott Linehan has the 7th best offense in the NFL in terms of points and 3rd in terms of yards and that he's doing this with rookies at quarterback and running back… the smart bet is that it's him. Bring it on, Sunday.
