Acting as if you have first-hand, inside information to everything that goes on and the rest of us are all just idiots who are guessing our thoughts and information, who you must teach and put in our proper place by attempting to humiliate and make yourself seem god-like in your knowledge by acting as if all that comes out of your shitty mouth is fact. Please don't respond to my posts anymore and I wont respond to yours.
Dude!!! That was Awesome!!!

I think the bottom line is this: Arians tries to be as creative as possible given that he's had a banged up oline (which wasn't great to begin with...and, yes, they were good run blocking last year, but lacking in pass protection) to work with, has had to simplify the offense a couple of times (his offense is predicated upon complex WR crossing routes that take time to develop), and lacks a heavy-hitting power back upon which to shoulder the late game load.

We wear teams down to an extent, but it's stupid for us to expect to be able to line up and become one-dimensional with a less than stellar OL and no power back.

You guys just cherry pick that which makes Arians look bad, and ignore his strong suits. The fact is he's taken a team that is weak up front and IN SPITE of that, and some pretty average offensive rankings, found a way to score enough points to produce wins in 75% of the games we've played.
Yeah right, like the 11 points that the Steelers put up on the Chargers? Boy, that was an offensive show. Give me a break with that BS.

This team is 9-3 IN SPITE OF ARIANS! It's the Steelers #1 rated DEFENSE that has WON MOST of the games.

I dont think I would categorize any NFL offense as Basic, but Arians offense doesnt seem that elaborate. He runs plays up the middle, off tackle, draws, flanker screens, play action, quick slants and takes shots deep now and then. He doesnt run many RB screens, pitches or tosses or FB leads and has never run the pony backfield that was talked about in the offseason.

That bunch formation he runs is nothing elaborate....back in the days of political incorrectness it was referred to as the "three Indians formation". I think the posters are mocking the results......not his overly complicated offense.
