    At first glance and looking at how the Bills defense fared this season I am not overtly impressed.

    Would've been real great has they been able to lure the Giant's DL coach away.

    Not that it is a direct correlation but the best the Bills defense has done the past 3 years is 18th in the league and twice have landed behind us in rankings.

    Never heard of him, which probably makes no difference whatsoever.

    Good catch, HB.

    It's not sexy, but I like the looks of his track record. If he can add another 12-15 sacks per year from the D line in a more aggressive defense, our secondary should look better instantly.

    With Spagnalo leaving NY, I doubt the Giants wll let anybody from their staff leave for a lateral move.

    Averages 37.5 sacks per year as a line coach? Fine by me. I don't know anything about him.

    Posted this on the other DL coach thread:

    Bills Website:

    http://www.kffl.com/player/15023/NFL

    Supposedly his full name is William Wallace Kollar...anybody want to wear kilts and get painted up if our D-Line becomes a dominant force? Kidding...sort-of

    I have to admit I have never heard of him, but I sure like the style he teaches.

    Wow! Kubes really worked his butt off interviewing!:sarcasm:

    All I can say is THANK GAWD for some sort of football talk!! I certainly can't comment one way or another on this guy, I know NADDA about position coaches. I just hope Mario, Demeco, and Co. respect him. That's what matters.

    Another non impressive hire. Just went through his 2003-2008 rushing D's and his highest ranking was 20th in 2003.

    Does Kubiak not understand that if he fails to improve the D and miss the playoffs yet again, he is going to get canned?

    Eh..Well...that's that. He looks like he's done good with some DLs. Maybe their defense has sucked but his DLs have been good. He should go well with Frank Bush.

    from what ive read of Collar, he is respected by his peers. john mcclain seems to love the pickup... however you feel about that

    Had we hired him to be the DC that would piss me off, but since he seems to get career numbers across the board from the Dline players and the fact that he is aggressive, Im fine with it.
