Default Sean Kugler Appreciation thread

From Ross Tucker's column on ESPN:

Yet despite the masterful job that Moss and Greene have done in Green Bay, they may have been outdone by Pittsburgh Steelers first-year offensive line coach Sean Kugler. He came to Pittsburgh this past offseason from the Buffalo Bills without a lot of fanfare or experience at the NFL level. All he's had to deal with since then is the loss of his two starting offensive tackles from a unit that was considered the team's weak link even before those injuries.
Instead, Kugler has found a way to make a unit consisting of a journeyman left tackle, an over-the-hill right tackle, an undrafted free-agent right guard and -- with the injury to star center Maurkice Pouncey in the AFC Championship Game -- an undrafted free agent who has started four career games (all at guard) as Pouncey's replacement. And all that not-so-fearsome foursome did -- with the help of left guard Chris Kemoeatu -- was help the Steelers rush for more than 160 yards against the New York Jets to clinch the AFC title. That's not too shabby.

It is all the more impressive when you consider that on that cobbled-together unit, only Kemoeatu would be ranked among the top 20 offensive linemen in the league at their respective positions. No matter. As a unit, under Kugler's leadership, the Steelers' offensive line is good enough to march to the Super Bowl.
Now the Steelers have to get it done once more against Clay Matthews, B.J. Raji and the gang -- without Pouncey. It will take their very best effort, and that includes my position coach of the year, Kugler.


Kudos to Kugler! Excellent Job!

Yeah I remember some were skeptical of Kugler since he had coached in Buffalo before but he's done a great job here. Ben seems to have been getting sacked less since he's become OL coach plus the running game seems much more efficent too.
