He is an assistant and not the oline coach. I canít imagine his knowledge of the game having a negative effect whatsoever

These are the same guys who helped Edge get all those yards rushing.

What I do like about last year was how the O line kept moving until the echo of the whistle. Now that was a Mudd trait. Finishing. Keeping your head on a swivel.

I don't think "finesse" is ever a word that will be applied to Quenton Nelson

Finesse somehow makes people think it's not violent. Nelson couldn't hit the way he does, if he wasn't technically sound. Great feet, great tech when he pulls, his vision is really good for a rookie, and he has room to improve.

Mudd tends to get the best out of the guys he gets. You can't get enough good guys in a room.

Of course finesse in reguards to an offensive line is violent. Not being finesse is all about attitude. Nelson talking to Castanzo being pissed because they didnít put their man on the ground. Block was made but that wasnít the point of their block. The point is not to make the block but to destroy the guy across from you. Come to think about it itís hard to see Mudd not loving that

Apparently you haven't seen his no look behind the back pass?

Here is an article from Chappell covering Mudd's introductory press conference. Reminisces a bit from his first "tour" and seems really excited about the current team and being able to work with Reich and Strausser.

The more talent on this team the better, and that's not just on the field. That's in the front office, on the coaching staff, etc..... so for them to bring him in is absolutely a positive for the team. Good hire.
