For four seasons Larry Zierlein coached the Cleveland Browns offensive line and had to face the Steelers defense twice a year.

Now, his line will have to face them on a daily basis, and he isn't sure which is worse.

"I can't quite figure out if it's better to go against this defense twice a year in games, or to not have to face them in games but have to go through practices against them,' said Zierlein. "It's an outstanding defense."

Zierlein, the team's new offensive line coach, was with the Browns from 2001-04. He is happy that when football season rolls around this year he will be on the other sideline at Heinz Field.

"I used to dread it when we went from the hotel and I would see the outline of the stadium and I would say, oh, we have to go there," said Zierlein. "We played them nine times when I was in Cleveland and we won once. We had some close games, but we only won once. It was never fun coming here.

"I think I am going to like walking into the stadium better now."

Thanks LITP, I am hoping he can pull an O-line out of his hat.

The Browns' O-Line if I can recall wasn't exactly terrible. Compared to last year, our O-Line couldn't get any worse.

What games were you watching? There OL has been terrible for years.
I'm not putting all the blame on the OL Coach though. Look at our OL, were weren't very strong on OL last season, and we had a good OL Coach in Grimm.

So are we agreed that Zierlein needs to get some fresh meet in the draft and kick some military ass? (cleveland O-line sucking aside)
