going by your assessment of what is valuable, transferable experience - Cowher should have never been hired. He did coach under Marty twice too - thought that would make him public enemy #1 to you

Did anybody start a fire Bicknell sticky yet???

Seriously, I'm all for a zone blocking system as it will help out young guys.

I don't believe so lol - might save some time to also call it "Fire Bicknell, No Former KC Coahes, and NO thugs threat" - kind of a 3 in 1 that would cover a lot of ground lol

His Zone Scheme is the key. I'm ecstatic we would be switching to it.

If he implements it; that alone will make the Steeler's offensive running game that much better. The linemen we have now fit perfectly into that style and I believe it will create less injuries, and allows for the release of Colon and not resigning Foster if need be. We will need to find the last piece of the puzzle that left guard position though.

I'm glad we made.a.change in o line scheme. I'm tired of seeing the lack of holes down after down, season after season. I hope this gets the run machine pumping again. This is 60% of our offensive woes and we will be much more.competitive with a running game. Zone blocking.should help set.up more successful screen plays as well.

Hopefully he works with these guys on their less-than-desirable run blocking

I like the hire, but we need a back that will fit in the zone scheme.

Out of the three starting backs we had this year, Mendy is the only one who would truly fit into this scheme. I count myself as one of many who do not want him on the roster this coming year. For the zone technique you need a faster more agile back and neither Dwyer or Redman is that.

Also, I wonder how much Haley influenced this hire?

Zone blocking, not sure but probably can't get worse.

Haley and Jack were in the Chiefs organization at separate times. He never coached under Haley and thus I would assume Haley didn't have a lot of input into it. I will say that Tomlin probably talked with Coughlin about him though and that was the final straw for him to be hired. If Coughlin would've given Mike anything less than a glowing report, I very much doubt he'd be our offensive line coach this year.

The dude has a Super Bowl ring and only let Eli get sacked 28 times as an Asst. OLine coach. I mean, he has to be doing something right. I also think it's a very good idea to implement the ZBS now that our line has four younger guys on it that have all shown their athletic ability and potential.

Man, Lattimore running behind this line gets me excited, I don't know about you guys.
