    Since when did Sid Gillman coach for the Cowboys? That's not the Gillman, is it?

    It looks like him. He retired from the Chargers in 1971 due to poor health and took over as the Oilers GM in 1973 when his health improved.

    I did find a list of Cowboys assistants under Landry here: http://www.cowboysplus.com/classic/webspecials/landry/landryasststory.htm

    That shows Sid Gillman as an assistant in 1972. That was something I didn't know. Considering what a fan I was of Gillman that is surprising.

    I never knew he was on the staff, and you are right that would make 10. I wonder what Roger thought of working with him? I'd love to find out.

    Great question.

    I loved Gillman since he was with the Rams and then the Chargers (I grew up in L.A.). He was such a passing genius, it kills me every time I hear Bill Walsh referred to as a genius since all he did was utilize what Gillman had been doing for decades and give it a catchy name. The only real difference was that Walsh rarely threw deep while Gillman mixed in deep passes with the short passing, but the general idea was the same, using the pass to set up the run rather than the other way around.

    The weirdest thing about Gillman was that he was named AFC Coach of the Year in 1974 and promptly fired by the Oilers. There's a reason they sucked forever, Bud Adams was an idiot!

    Well, he was an idiot then and I assume he still is.

    Even if he is an all pro guard, I have never seen an OL less intrested in his QB getting whacked like No. 61 in this picture.
