Linehan on his way out?

Rams coach Scott Linehan may be on shakier ground than Lions coach Rod Marinelli or Raiders coach Lane Kiffin.

Team sources say Linehan could be out, win or lose agajnst the Bills on Sunday. The most likely interim coach is defensive coordinator Jim Haslett, the former Saints coach.

Linehan's benching of Marc Bulger did not play well in the locker room and he has been second-guessed by team stalwarts like Torry Holt and Steven Jackson.

Ownership believes he has lost the team and on Friday saw more signs behind the scenes of the coach cracking under pressure.
