I think you have to focus on the consistent problems.

#1 - Our offense - you have to be able to ask your offense to bail you out once in a while. Arians unit has consistently underachieved since he's taken over the unit. This covers Ben's horrible play and the play calling. It also explains the pass protection issues (which I believe there is no issue with) It also would explain our inconsistent running game. Bruce Arians must be fired and until he is we will NEVER win anything in the post season. A capable offense would also fix any perceived issue with our defense. Imagine if we actually kept the opponents QB off the field. Imagine if we forced opponents to play catchup?

Yea Reed sucks but I think we are stuck with him till the season is over. What is your plan B?

Injuries? You can't really do anything about that....injuries are an excuse. Every team has injuries. The good teams ignore them.

The offense to work in conjunction with the defense. They need to take time off the clock and sustain long drives on a consistent basis. This will help an aging and over-rated defense out. They need to drill Ben on making quick reads and timing throws; 3 steps and out of your hand. They also need to draft bigger receivers for crying out loud. It's like munchkin land out there.

true. It looks like we have a high-school ensemble of receivers out on the field.

Yea....just look at the great corp of WR's Brady has! oh wait..... Well I do agree....either Ben has NO ability to do a 3 step drop and throw......or Arians doesn't want him doing it. I suspect it's a little of both.

3 steps and get rid of it? How can you do that when almost every play takes 5s for the receivers to get to their spots, well that or a dan screen play that won't work. We were just flat out coached today. The 2 series we actually blitzed we forced 3 and outs so why stick with that?? And we dropped what 3 TD passes?? Reed is done apparently. All the injuries now too Ward, Timmons, Keisel, OL wow this is turning into a possible disaster ending to a promising season!

Ben can do it. I think that one's on Arians.

Offense, Defense, Special Teams...just 3 problems.

Everything counts. If Reed had not missed that kick, then when they were down 11, it would have been 8 and maybe they would have kicked deep instead of giving the short field from the onsides.

Oh well...we were just owned. We still haven't figured out Tom Brady ...meanwhile he has figured out the Steelers and he was passing effortlessly.

line up the receivers in a spread instead of a bunch formation, it will allow quicker developing routes. of course arians won't do that though, and when he does it's an empty backfield. I swear I wouldn't be surprised if arians is trying to get ben killed back there.

He doesn't understand football... A lot of stuff you see the Steelers do on offense, the Colts do. The problem is that the Steelers line is no where near as good as tthe Colts, and there isn't much depth at the reciever position. Sanders as potential, but he needs a lot of work, El is terrible and has no speed, Wallace is fast but isn't a good route runner, what he wants just doesn't work with this offense, and he doesn't adjust. The only good adjustment he's made this year is having Miller and Spaeth block a lot more.
