Rising: Richard Rogers. As special teams coordinator he has put together what looks like could be the best special teams unit in many seasons.
i would say that rogers benefitted from bruce dehaven being his asst. coach/mentor. dehaven is pretty much a legend in the special teams world.
dehaven is far more qualified to be the STs coach. i'm not sure if dehaven was brought in to mentor rogers or to be the back up plan in case rogers didn't work out. maybe both.
that said, when i found out that dehaven was coming here i knew we were in for a boon to our special teams. he is by far the best coach we've had on special teams that i can remember us ever having.
bills team site has a good bio on him and his accomplishments: http://www.buffalobi...56-eb043b5d78dd
ginn was another great addition as well, but i think that dehaven is the guy that will help us more than anything on STs this year. i don't think that rogers is a scrub, btw. i think we were better when he took over last year, but there's no doubt in my mind that dehaven will make rogers better.
