Default Bruce Arians

With the Steelers offense completely unable to match-up and adjust out there today, it's apparent that its time to get rid of the offensive coordinator. We got outcoached on the offensive side of the ball! I know our offensive line is average at best, but come on...they are still professional football players! I don't think I've ever seen a professional O-line get dismantled in that manner! I've been watching the Steelers since 1977 and I've never seen us get manhandled the way the eagles took it to us ever. Why not a few roll-outs, more screens...something!

Where the hell is Max Starks? He can't be any worse than these guys! Straight embarassing!

HA so its Arians fault Ben didn't have one sec. to dump the ball. The O Coordinator calls plays and our offense didn't have many of those because of the line.
Arians surely made excellent calls on many occasions, but you can see the great call because Ben was on the ground.

Ben looked good Week 1 and 2 with the play calls...why? Because he had time to throw and Willie had spaces to run in. He didn't today and that Arians fault. NO!

Wanna talk about a real problem...the OL and the OL COACH!

Would you people stop bitching about Arians?

Arians could have called better plays, but ultimately IT'S THE PLAYERS EXECUTION OF THE PLAYS THAT WILL ULTIMATELY DECIDE THE PACE OF THE GAME! Sure Refs make bad calls, and random things happen, but it's the players that determine whether they want to fight it or let whatever went wrong go to their heads.

No, with the exception of a few games including today's his play calling has been pretty good since he became offensive coordinator. He has a good relationship with Roethlisberger and has given him more control of the offense. Giving him the freedom to modify the playbook and call audibles along with Ken Anderson's coaching has contributed to Ben becoming an elite quarterback. Zierlien needs to be fired, I have no idea why this guy is coaching in the NFL. I'd be surprised if he was capable of coaching on a high school team. I'd like to see the Steelers hire an o-line coach from the college ranks that is good at developing young talent such as the coaches from LSU or Oklahoma. Zierlein has made it obvious he doesn't know what he is doing.

Not sure why Max won't get a chance to play. He was good enough to start for a super bowl team and watching Willie Colon get burned just makes me sick.

It's extremely difficult to do anything on offense when we are just getting blown away on the trenches.

Snap, 3 step drop, 3 guys in Ben's face.

Hey, why not? I'm sure we can get a completely new system installed by next week. And the pass protection will probably still blow.

THANK YOU!
Arians is not the one on the field making the plays all he does is call them and it's up to the players to commit!
YOU CAN"T WHEN YOUR QB AND RUNNING BACK ARE ON THE GROUND EVERY PLAY!

HELL YEAH. That would help to make up for not improving the O-line, him along with s*it for brains Larry Zierlein and getting rid of every starter on the O-line when the season is over and the QBs get sacked 75 times
