How did we ever let him go? The man is just a genius. We saw Andrews literally man-handling Wilfork, and Watt/Clowney were kept quiet all night - all with an inexperienced and newly assembled line. Every single player on that line has improved noticeably.

Am I overdoing it here when I say that he's comfortably the best positional coach in the league?

I firmly believe we'd have won the Superbowl last year with him as the OL coach (certainly Stork wouldn't have been ushering Miller/Ware into our backfield).

Don't know if he's the best positional coach but I think that his fit with BB is the best in the league.

It's not like Guge was a sh-- coach. His style of coaching just didn't mesh well with the broader culture/style of coaching that BB was using with the team as a whole. Guge let his guys have more room to work (less attention to detail) which worked fantastically for guys like Stork who played with a mean streak. But BB's a detail guy and extremely process oriented so in the end it just didn't work out with Guge.

Scar, like BB, are incredibly detail and process focused.

Get this man a red jacket and put him in the team's HOF when he decides to retire for good.

He's also a really great guy. My friend works security and part of his job was to escort the coaches from the boxes down to the field. He said Scar was incredibly gracious and gave everyone a handshake at the end of the season. Apparently he would even give his hat to a kid at the end of every game too.

Conversely, he said McDaniels was pretty much a huge jerk. One of the classy lines by him was "keep those [curse word] people away from me" when he escorted him once downfield, referring to the fans.

Coaching and leadership are so vital to success. Having the right guys in place makes all the difference in the world. Prime example here. Thank heaven we got him back!

Texans game was such a reminder that you can scheme your offensive line to nullify an opponent even when you're physically outmatched, but only if you have a brilliant coach.

This 100%. A smart scheme with intelligent coaching will nullify even the best players in history - no matter how much NFL Network's Top 100 players' wants you to think otherwise.

How much do you think Scarnecchia is involved the offensive gameplan for a game?

I can't help but think it would help McDaniels if he sat down with Scar so he could tell him exactly what type of plays would be best run to which side and behind which linemen.

I honestly have no clue what an OL coach does other than teach blocking technique.

Is he in charge of blocking schemes and then McDaniels creates plays from there, is it the other way around?

Scar makes such a huge difference I'd love to see exactly what he does for the line and offensive scheme on a weekly basis that makes him so great.

Any well run program has communication top to bottom. Mcd talks to Scar about strengths and weaknesses and desires of the offense, and vica versa. It all starts in training camp.

Does he get blame for the offensive line disasters in the playoffs from 2007-2013 on his watch which cost this team at least 2 championships ?

I think they work together, extensively. I'll use an example;

Blount's run where he is one-on-one with the safety (Demps), first drive of the third quarter. It's I-formation and Power 0. They leave a massive gap on (their right, our left) side of the line - so our right guard pulls and runs to the gap for a block. Solder as LT down blocks the RE, our left TE (Michael I think), with a kick out block on Mercilus. Full back runs through hole - Blount follows him, and it's just a good play by Demps.

That HAS to be a combination of blocking coaching, but play recognition offensively too.

Or is simply great coaching by Spag? 0 Sugar blitz, wasn't it? Messed our interior up all day.
