I'm curious who you think is a realistic replacement for Arians? Y'all seem to have a phenomenal football acumen so let's see your suggestions as opposed to the usual Arians sucks. From reading opposing teams game day threads it would seem that there isn't a decent oc in the league.

I have a wad of chewing gum stuck under my chair right now that I think might work out pretty well for us.

I'm not a big Arians hater but I do have a big gripe.

He knows that our OL is weak. And if they are getting beat time and time again - we need plays that are really quick throws.

We need about 10 different variations of quick throws that we can go to if our OL is playing poorly .

It seems that our offense is not properly prepared to execute these short passes

You're right. Every time I talk to a team who's offense isn't putting up 30 plus a game the first person to be damned is the OC.

I can't tell wether it's the play calling or poor execution, but it seems like our offense is so inconsistent and underperforms considering the talent we have.

There are many factors, including injuries to the O-line, Roethlisberger missing 4 games, developing rookie wr's. I don't particularly like Arians, but I'd be willing to see what he can do next year with all the pieces put together (if that's possible).

Maybe Wisenhunt will want his old job back if ARZ has another year like this one.

they unveiled some new wrinkles.

i was hoping norv turner would be fired, and wouldnt have been opposed to charlie weiss if he wasnt going to the gators.

last year somebody suggested the panthers OC (cant remember his name). it wasnt a bad suggestion.

i do think arians has done enough to improve and will probably be rewarded with a contract offer from the rooneys.

If I remember correctly Ben and Wiz didn't exactly see eye to eye.

He's dead and he took our last chance of a good offense with him.

How does being dead make him any worse than Arians?

If her kids can play offensive line, I'd be all for it.

I'm afraid just being on the same field with Ben would leave her knocked up again though.

I think Arians has some genuis in him, like someone else said, 28 other teams fans hate their OC's.
The thing I hate about Arians is those stupid bubble screens and his coaching ability. Players seemed lost sometimes, like when he teaches them the plays, he isn't clear enough for them

i think Ben needs to take over the offense a lot more
have the freedom to call his own plays when he feels like it
and may be just maybe we can keep this foo

I never would have thought that out of all the Arians bashers that not one of them could come up with a realistic suggestion.

There have been lots of serious suggestions (Turner, Weis, even Zorn...and some others), they're just buried in a dead thread somewhere lol.

No idea. I just despise Arians and his stupid playcalling (bubble screen, lack of RB screens, running on 1st AND 2nd down for 2 yards, etc.) But they have looked better the last couple of games so perhaps he is getting better as well. I just hate those long pass plays over and over (especially with an empty backfield set) over and over with this atrociously beat up O-line. Throw quick slants and some RB screens in there to slow the rush down.
