For once Arians and I agree - I also am thankful he was fired
So he admits to being shit canned and not retiring. Looks like the Rooney's let you save face after they booted your ass out under the guise of retirement.

Then there's this little nugget of classiness from brucie after being canned from the clowns.

Quote:
“Our head coach lost the game,” Arians said. “He called off the dogs on defense. You just don’t let Tommy Maddox sit there and go against a prevent defense. He basically fired [defensive coordinator] Foge Fazio at halftime. Foge was blitzing. We had them beat. They knew we had them beat.”

Arians says Davis took over the playcalling at halftime and insisted the team play his prevent defense.

“I don’t care what anyone says. I was on that sideline,” Arians said.

No, its not. Wait and see...

If you compare this colts season to last year when they purposely shit the bed to get a top pick, then yeah...... I guess it's its an " impressive" turn around. But, I think they are playing right where they should be at this point. Beating average/ sub average teams, and losing to good teams. By no means very impressive though.

BTW, I've never said we were knocking playoff teams dead left and right either.....

you know what, I'd like to hear more about why in the world we have to play any division opponent twice in 3 weeks. I don't care if we won - I still don't want that.

I like it - except after it wins 1 award because the other star carried BA, it will eventually fail because the formula will become stale - they'll have to find BA's replacement - ala Ashton Kutcher - and we'll see a BA roast where he'll say it was everyone else's fault the show went downhill

that does seem pretty bogus. I don't know what the NFL was thinking with that decision. They know that these are going to be violent, hard hitting games. Add another brutal rivalry for the Steelers between those two. I don't care what people say about the Browns, this game coming up is going to be hard hitting.

Almost makes you think they're trying to take these two teams out by having them kill each other. What did the Ravens have 4 games in something like 20 days at the beginning of the year?

Player safety my ass.

I still do not understand why so many people hate Arians so much.

5 straight winning seasons, four of those with double-digit wins, two Super Bowl appearances and one Super Bowl win. If Haley posted an identical record in the next five years, would he "suck" too?

Maybe Arians will never be a Hall of Fame coach, but I'd hardly call him a bad or incompetent coach.

Why do you hate him so much?

first off, getting rid of the fullback. second, bubble screens (unfortunately that's continued under Haley). Not using Miller as a receiver. Not using Mendenhall as a receiver. Using a tight end as a fullback. Not protecting Ben. poor game plans.

His comments off the field never helped him either.

I agree that he's not a terrible coach, he just wasn't good for Pittsburgh.

i don't give arians credit for any success they may have had. dick lebeau's defense and roethlisbergers ability to turn chicken shit into chicken salad deserve all the credit.
had ben drew up plays in the dirt with a stick the results woulda been the same.
