    Adding Munchak: nice thought but not a fit

    https://www.yardbarker.com/nfl/artic...17181_38859225

    We all loved our OL when he was here; among the best in the NFL.

    But we have a OL coach, and the two do not seem to inter-mix in philosophies. Meyer has a specific technique, one I do not think Munchak shares.

    I find that to be a particularly intriguing addition for Mike Tomlin given the fact that Mike Munchak knows the Steelers culture and is a former head coach. In other words, think of it as a senior offensive assistant much like the same way Teryl Austin and Brian Flores acted when that was their job on the defensive side of the football.
    Maybe more as a "general hire" like Flores last year? I don't know. I feel like Munchak would not be able to just chill out watching someone else handle the OL coaching. He is a marvelous OL coach, too bad we can't figure out a way to add him. I am still not sure why he left; not sure I buy is official reason.

    If the Steelers had a chance to get that guy back and didnt, then I would agree with every poster who says we lack intelligence from its leaders.

    Someone like that you find a place for him.

    I believe he said he wanted to be closer to family, daughter lived in Denver area. I think that was the word.

    I am surprised Sean Payton did not reach out to him. I guess he has his own guys.

    Munchak is old school. Denver kicked him out because he didn't fit.

    He was "old school" in Pgh, he put together an "old school" kick @ss OL. That was "old school" all right.

    Much's specialty is the OL, but he is also a former HC. Although he wasn't successful, I am sure he understands the macro approach, working with the various coaches and assistants on a number of factors, communication etc. I would hire him as asst. HC or offensive specialist, or whatever title you want to give him. I think he would be a good set of eyes to have amongst the rest of the coaches.
