Arians says Mike Pouncey is better than Maurkice

Former Steelers’ offensive coordinator and current Indianapolis Colts offensive coordinator Bruce Arians, who is serving as the team’s head coach during Chuck Pagano’s illness, was asked about the Miami Dolphins offense during a conference call with the Miami media in advance of their game this weekend.

In praising the Dolphins offensive line, Arians gave props to Mike Pouncey, while saying he is better than his twin brother Maurkice whom Arians coached while with the Steelers.

“I think they have a great young offensive line. When you’ve got Jake Long and (Mike) Pouncey, I think Mike’s better than Maurkice and make sure you tell Maurkice I said that,” said Arians. “I’m sure Mike will. They got a nice young line and Reggie (Bush) is a home run hitter and the quarterback is playing good.

“They’ve got a couple solid receivers. They’re pieces there but when you build it off that running game and offensive line, that’s a great place to start.”

Pouncey learned of the comments after practice on Thursday, and laughed about it.

“I don’t mind it at all,” he said. “I am actually happy for Mike. Let him get all of the publicity in the world. If that is my mark, it’s in my family, I am down with it. He can be the best.”

that was a low blow from Arians. It was un-needed.

He's(Arians) never been a classy guy, IMO. Still, has mike been injured less than Markice?? It may be a valid statement, but not with the emphasis that was used.

The part that gets me is when he says, "Tell Maurkice that I said that."

WTF!?!

I could see up-selling an opponent (talking nicely about Mike), but adding that extra line is a little... uh... immature. It was an obvious dig at his old team.

Speaking of which, Art II made a statement, after hearing this, "Arians was effing FIRED... make sure that you remind him of that."

It may have been an unwarranted cheap shot, but it may also be true. Maurkice, while certainly in the top 10 and maybe top 5 at his position, is overrated.

how can he be overrated when he is almost universally regarded as one of the best (if not THE best) center in the game. he will likely be 1st team all-pro (much more significant than being a pro-bowler) this season.

with that being said, mike and markice are literally carbon copies of eachother. to say one is better than the other is probably denying genetics.

markice is certainly on a better team (though be it a team w/o a premier tackle like jake long.)

arians is just a low brow douchebag.
