    Zeirlein ran a zone blocking system. Our OLinemen are not good zone blockers. They are big mashing squishers. And we have power running RB's.

    Adams, Gilbert, Pouncey, Decastro, and Beachum can run the zone. Foster, Colon, Starks, and the plodders cannot.

    I forget which writer mentioned it, but said that Haley would have more input into the o-line this year and would be involved in the o-line coach hire. Tomlin liked the running game Haley had in KC. They ran a zone type scheme.

    I think this is a good hire. He coached the Chiefs line last year and is familiar with the type of o-line Haley likes.
    However, Haley and Bicknell have never coached together. Haley was fired by K.C. in 2011. Bicknell was hired by K.C. in 2012. In Bicknell's only season with the Chiefs, Haley was already in Pittsburgh.

    Presidential locker room talk: Discussing involuntary gynecological exams.

    According to the highest office in the country, some "very fine people" marched with torches in a violent protest in Charlottesville, but participating in a non-violent protest on a football field means you are an S.O.B. who should be fired.

    He a Zone blocker Guru hopefuly the steelers OL fits and that would mean Gilbert needs to lose weight.If the lose Starks i believe they will need a Tackle via the draft.

    Yeah, I understood that, but he coaches a lot of the guys that were there when Haley was coach. So he's familiar with the type of o-linemen that Haley likes to play.

    Would be interesting to get Lacy and run him behind a solid line in a zone blocking scheme.

I'm tired of seeing us have a new starting lineup every couple of games.
    Most teams at all levels of competition usually use both zone blocking and man.. The Steelers are no different. They use both.
