The O didn't give up 10 points in the 3Q alone, did they? Damned straight we've been "hating" on the D - without their 4Q meltdowns, we'd be a 12-3 team right now with yet another AFCN crown and most likely a 1st round bye. They came very close to another meltdown, but the O put the go-ahead points on the board and the D closed out the game as they should have been doing all season.

I honestly think he was looking to see where he was going to do his Michael Jackson dance before he caught it. And then it was sweet to see him laughing about it. I would have made him run laps so he could get hit by all the fans with Terrible Towels. Dumb ass!! :banging::banging::banging:

You keep riding the D's ass im gonna counter and raise you one up on the offense. Tell me who's missing thats a key contributor to this offense ? Troy is out, Aaron Smith is out and Harrison is playing with one arm out there. So let me ask u this; Why say you nothin of this offenses struggles in the red zone HTG ? They have their full contingency of athletes. 4K yard passer, 2 -1K wideouts and a 1K rusher and we get the ball on every series except the last drive in the first half IN ravens territory and settle for either no pts or 3 on half of them. 1st and goal after a turnover at the 7 and we cant manage 7 yrds, with all those weapons ? Again, who's missing from this unit ? Logan set this offense up a couple games ago with a huge opening game return inside the 5 yrd line and we managed 3 pts....WTF ??!!! 3 pts ??? We have WEAPONS on offense. Im fully confident this offense can score with ANYBODY IN THIS LEAGUE. But im afraid we just dont have the Coordinator that can maximize or exploit the strengths of the weaponry at his disposal. And notice this important fact...ARIANS WILL NOT RECEIVE A SINGLE REQUEST FOR AN INTERVIEW FOR A COACHING POSITION THIS OFFSEASON

Two Pro Bowlers absent and a third not healthy on defense. But u wanna bang on them...go right ahead but remember..REMEMBER THE STRUGGLES of this offensive unit to put games out of reach vs Chicago, Cincy, KC, Oak. LeBeau is hamstrung and gettin shitty results out of what he has to work with. Arians has a full deck. Whats his excuse ? Tell me that....

The Steelers D has cost us more games by letting teams drive down the field in the closing mintues to score GW touchdowns or FG, thats not the offenses fault.

Im not saying the offense is perfect, but for some reason some people want to place the entire blame on them when IMO our D has cost us more games.

Your rant matters not. If the O has to be perfect every single time and bear the brunt of the criticism for the losses, then the D does too. It's as simple as that. The personnel on the field does not matter - they still have to make plays. The fact of the matter is the D is directly responsible for shitting the bed and costing the team at least 4 wins by blowing leads late, and damn near blew 3 others (SD, DET, GB). They DO NOT get a free pass under any circumstances.

And BTW, she's never said that the O doesn't deserve any criticism or that she is A-OK with all of Arians' playcalling. She just believes that everything wrong with the offense is NOT HIS FAULT, the way you and so many others here froth at the mouth and trip over yourselves doing every single week...all the while never giving him any credit for when the offense does well.

We have WEAPONS on offense. Im fully confident this offense can score with ANYBODY IN THIS LEAGUE. But im afraid we just dont have the Coordinator that can maximize or exploit the strengths of the weaponry at his disposal. And notice this important fact...ARIANS WILL NOT RECEIVE A SINGLE REQUEST FOR AN INTERVIEW FOR A COACHING POSITION THIS OFFSEASON

Two Pro Bowlers absent and a third not healthy on defense. But u wanna bang on them...go right ahead but remember..REMEMBER THE STRUGGLES of this offensive unit to put games out of reach vs Chicago, Cincy, KC, Oak. LeBeau is hamstrung and gettin shitty results out of what he has to work with. Arians has a full deck. Whats his excuse ? Tell me that....


I don't really care who the defense is missing, they still have a job to do, and they have not been doing it. As far as BA is concerned the first drive was stopped be a dropped ball that should have been an easy catch. Drives can be stopped by several things beside the play that is called. BA has, does, and will make mistakes, but again trying to pin all bad play on him is not fair, and using him as a scapegoat for the defense is really unfair.

Its easier for a "good" D to look better than a good "O". Thats why our "D" generally looks better than our "O" -and probably always will.

D, AND O, AND ST's , but MOSTLT COACHING (from Tomlin on down) have made us LOSE 5 games in a row, They're playin for their jersey's now. and thats all she wrote.

The Steelers are way to low on the totem-pole this year to beeeatch about anybody but themselves ALL around !.

You keep riding the D's ass im gonna counter and raise you one up on the offense. Tell me who's missing thats a key contributor to this offense ? Troy is out, Aaron Smith is out and Harrison is playing with one arm out there. So let me ask u this; Why say you nothin of this offenses struggles in the red zone HTG ? They have their full contingency of athletes. 4K yard passer, 2 -1K wideouts and a 1K rusher and we get the ball on every series except the last drive in the first half IN ravens territory and settle for either no pts or 3 on half of them. 1st and goal after a turnover at the 7 and we cant manage 7 yrds, with all those weapons ? Again, who's missing from this unit ? Logan set this offense up a couple games ago with a huge opening game return inside the 5 yrd line and we managed 3 pts....WTF ??!!! 3 pts ??? We have WEAPONS on offense. Im fully confident this offense can score with ANYBODY IN THIS LEAGUE. But im afraid we just dont have the Coordinator that can maximize or exploit the strengths of the weaponry at his disposal.

One or two players a team does not make - football 101. Good teams adjust. The Steelers D has not. You don't see me blaming Lebeau do you? :banging:

YOU TELL ME - how many games the D totally SHIT the bed this season where Arians O gave them leads in the second half and in the waning moments of the 4Q. While I agree that the O has left points on the field in several games, this same O has put more than enough points up on the board (other than the 2nd Cincy game and the Browns game) to win those games - it was the DEFENSE that gave the games away on silver platters. You Arians haters also fail to realize that Ben has the option, on any given play, to audible which he does very rarely. Our D came very close today to shitting the bed again but were saved by a terrific play by Wood getting to Flacco and the ball bouncing off a Rats player's helmet and into the hands of Hood.

I've always enjoyed and respected your posts very much, but your vehement hatred of BA is almost to the point of being sad. I don't always agree with his playcalling, but I, as a lifelong fan and scholar of the game, do not deem myself an expert nor do I deem fans posting on an internet sports BB experts either. I can only voice my opinion (as you can yours) and my opinion of BA far differs from yours which is fine. You're going to express your dissent and each and every week point the finger of blame at Arians and if I don't see it that way (which most times I don't), I'm going to defend my position. If you want to keep holding our pourous D without accountability, that is fine too. That's the way the cookie crumbles.

Like I've said before - if the Steelers FO decides they want to go in a different direction with another OC, I will support their decision as I totally trust their judgment a helluva lot more than a handful of fans on the outside looking in on an internet BB. :drink:
