    What I want from a new OL coach is someone who will be able to open up holes for Le'Veon Bell. The rook showed flashes of being special despite very limited blocking in front of him. When Munchak was OL coach in Tennessee, Chris Johnson was the feared CJ2K. When Munchak was otherwise occupied with additional head coaching responsibilities, Chris Johnson was a shell of his former self. Munchak was also their OL coach for Eddie George's entire career (and the closest physical comparison to Le'Veon Bell that I was able to think of was Eddie George). He also was able to get respectable rushing numbers out of guys like Travis Henry, Lendale White, and Chris Brown.
    And there is the money. The biggest need on O is to open up some holes for Bell. The scary thing about Bell is the fact that he has never really run behind a great OL...not in college and certainly not in the Burgh. He has made a career by sliding through small cracks in a D, and catching the ball.

    yep.. run blocking is my main concern. Bell never ran through a well blocked hole last season.

    He is an OL away from a pro bowl season.

    Pretty much the same deal at MSU. He has thrived behind average OL's. I would love to see some holes for him to run through.

    And at MSU he played with no QB, and no receivers. He really was the only focus on O.
