Arians offense has always been suspect. Ben loving the guy doesn't mean shit when you consider that every year games were close against bottom dwellers that we should have destroyed but BA and his game plans made them dog fights. This year there were plenty of games we should have dominated and instead were made to eek out a win. (Colts game, Browns, KC,) Its a repeating pattern and has been all along.

Glad the guy is gone hope they pick someone good to replace him.

also working up a game plan that nets 20 points against the Cardinals in the SB, and then gives up 3 Turnovers in the SB against the Packers isn't a "shining" moment for his resume. Maybe a Fullback wouldn't have missed the block Johnson missed on the Mendenhall fumble? Maybe? Just maybe a Philosophical difference wouldn't have our QB throwing a deep ball from his own endzone after pumping into double coverage...maybe our QB will have his eyes opened to the fact that sometimes, you need to check down to the Open Guy and not force the ball.

maybe next year the FG Kicker won't be the team's leading scorer, considering he can't hit from outside 45 yards!
