Well, the upside would be the results he was able to achieve in Buffalo with a line that was completely ravaged by injury.  They still finished in the middle of the pack in rushing and that was with mostly back ups.  This was accomplished despite M. Lynch having a down year and Fred Jackson receiving the bulk of the load.  Also, they have no where near the passing threat the Steelers present on a weekly basis.  Hopefully he can help...can't be much worse.  Here is a bit of the article I read:

Injuries hit Buffalo hard. By Week 6, Kugler's lineup shared 47 NFL starts. At the end of the year, six offensive linemen were on injured reserve. Five of them started at least one game. Only center Geoff Hangartner started all 16 games at his position.  

Not much to work with there and still finishing in the middle of the pack.  Hopefully he will help!


The link for anyone who wants to read it.

I'm not sure I understood the OL coach firing in the first place.  Given the personnel we had to work with, I thought the OL played surprisingly well this year.  I'm not saying I thought they were good. I'm saying I expected them to suck again, but by the end of the season I felt they played pretty OK. They were certainly NOT the weak link this year...

Apparently someone higher up didn't agree with me.

Yeah, I kind of think Zierlein got the raw end of the deal...he was sacrificed to scare Arians into not sucking.

Not sure how that is going to work.

This new guy could be the second coming of Joe Bugle, but with that moron Arians calling plays, it won't
mean shit.

This guys looks like a line coach...from what I read, it seems like he has his shit together and he works his ass off...hopefully this is a move in the right directon.  Here is the article:
