Just curious- with Mike Tice being punted in Chicago, could he be in line to be interview for the Steelers OL job?

He was the Bears OL coach before he was the OC.... not sure about his playing career.

He's built like an OL though.

On January 15, 2010, Tice was hired as Offensive Line coach for the Chicago Bears (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Chicago_Bears). On October 3, 2010 his offensive line allowed 9 sacks in one half to the New York Giants.
The Steelers would probably hire him for this


In March 2005, the NFL began to investigate Tice for organizing and profiting from a Super Bowl (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Super_Bowl)ticket scalping (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ticket_scalping) operation within the Vikings organization. He later admitted that these charges were true and the NFL fined him $100,000 on June 30, 2005.
Not so much for this though...
:D

Bill Cowher offered Tunch the position when he was coach, but Tunch turned it down at the time, so I wonder if he would consider it this time if offered?
When he was drafted by the Steelers in the 6th round, he was just an average player but developed a tecnique that help him become a damn good lineman which resulted in two PRO Bowl appearances.
He has a good deal of things going on and committments beside his job so its up in the air whether he would take the position if the Steelers offered it to him, as of now its rumor but its a good rumor if it happens.

Ilkin revolutionized pass protection; specifically, how offensive linemen use their hands in pass pro. Ilkin was really the first one to bring the techniques of martial arts into pass protection. Ilkin taught that in order to get more power with a punch, a linemen needed to punch with the muscles in their back in addition to the ones in their chest. This could be accomplished by squeezing the lat muscles together before the punch.

I think Gilbert and Adams could use a good dose of Tunch's Punch instead of eating a big lunch :wink:

IIRC every time I watched the Bears last season their problem was their OL, and protecting Cutler. I would not want anyone involved in that mess.

Last year they gave up 44 sacks (7 more than Pittsburgh), and 87 QB hits (20 more)

They had better rushing numbers, but that comes from having Matt Forte instead of the hodge podge that we ran out week after week.

And these numbers without a QB who holds the ball too long and causes his own sacks. :stirpot

When Cowher offered Tunch the job, he was married with 3 young children. Considering the long hours required of an NFL position coach, it was understandable why he would not want to take that time away from his family. Now, however, his kids are grown, and unfortunately, his wife succumbed to cancer a year ago. Perhaps he would be more amenable to filling up his time as a coach now more than before. Just a thought.

i was reading that Juan Castillo would be a good candidate.. He had success for several seasons ..

" Juan Castillo. He served 13 successful years as offensive line coach for the Philadelphia Eagles (http://bleacherreport.com/philadelphia-eagles), and coached up such players as Tra Thomas, Jon Runyan and Jermane Mayberry. He may not have been the perfect choice to run the Eagles defense, but there is no arguing with the success the offensive line enjoyed under his watch.With young talents such as Marcus Gilbert, Maurkice Pouncey, David DeCastro and Mike Adams entrenched on the line for the Steelers, Castillo’s intensity and know-how could be just what the doctor ordered to accelerate their growth."

He'll be a candidate. I always thought he'd make a good OL coach.

Good thought, I think most fans would love to see him coach, and not because he's liked but he has the potential to be pretty good as an O-line coach.

Get Tunch, Warmack and the Steelers should be a better offense overall, but our run game should improve as well.

This is a real headscratcher for sure, which makes me believe they already got their guy and it is only a formality in making an announcement.
