However, let's be honest here. Their success in St. Louis was primarily due stumbling into having a HOF QB behind center. Warner>Vermeil>Martz
Vermeil is a really good delegator. He didn't call plays, but he made sure, (on offense) he had good people in place. In a way Vermeil did exactly what most hate SP for. He tried to recreate the success he'd just had with the Rams, even bringingin the backup to make it run. It just worked, somewhat, better.
