Thread: Hal Hunter new OL Coach?

  1. #11
    If the Hunter hire happened, then good move by Tomlin...

    He's another very solid coach who has a good history with helping young players to develop...

    That being said, it's still up to Marcus Gilbert to stop being thrown around and endangering the knee ligaments of his teammates...

    Yeah, he was a pretty well regarded offensive line coach until he was inexplicably chosen to be the defensive coordinator.

    If I am not mistaken, Hal served as the OC last year too. I'm sure he had alot to do with the OL after the promotion and his patchwork OL seemed to hold its own against the Steelers. They kept talking about how the injuries decimated their OL but they played well against us. If true, I would say it has to be at the least a lateral hiring. Maybe some upside? We will find out. He has a group that averages 23 years old...His impact (positive or negative) on them will be seen early.

    He's got to be willing to put in the work. He needs to get stronger and work on his technique all off-season. He gets complacent with any amount of success.
    Here comes the BOOM!

    Maybe there was a lot of that going on with our Steelers....

    If this is true, then my statement of hiring him would lead you to believe I know something, which is so far from the truth. I did not even know his name, to me he was just the coach that took 3 new guys from that week against us and shut us down.

    Any reason there would be a delay in announcing this, if indeed did happen?

    Maybe they are waiting for the SB to be over and will talk with Castillo next week...

    Also, I wonder if Russ Grimm would have any interest in returning? Maybe not, but I thought I read somewhere that Zierlein is/ was hired to be BA's OL coach in Ariz......

    No thanks to Grimm. We don't need a motorcycle riding buddy for any of the players.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    I believe that Castillo took a position on Harbaugh's staff for next year as well. He's joining them for the SB like McDaniels did with the Pats* a few years back.
