arians didn't seem to have a game plan for mathis and freeney. he probably didn't even give them a second thought. i don't think arians game plans against any team. i still remember when arians admitted he has never practiced to go against a 3-4 defense...lol. that bubble screen has got to go. why wait so long for redman to come in? why is it when the steelers are running well they pass and when they are running poorly they keep forcing it?

Granted our Oline SUCKS, but where the heck are the short passing routes that every team in the league uses, the screens and mixing it up a little bit? 1 or 2 yards on first down, a missed pass on second down and third and long almost every single time. I can't believe how many times it was third and eight. Sorry, but that is absolutely stupid coaching.
Other teams call the Steelers predictable, well Arians anyhow!

bubble screen could work, but the flaw with it is that they're not using their best blocking wr as a blocker, and they're using the slowest WR who's easiest to stop in the open field (ward).

now if they threw that same play with ward as the blocker and antonio brown with the ball, who is dangerous in the open field, we could see better results.

but hey, what can we expect? we have Bruce "let's see how we can minimize the use of our talent" Arians as the OC

I can think of a 3 time SB winning HC that was also fired by the Cleveland Browns. Not about to defend Arians, but where he coached before means less than nothing.

I'm returning to my original assessment, which is that he seems to do a decent enough job most weeks of getting his boys ready, but that he has zero business calling plays on gameday. I'd much rather see Tomlin, Ben, or maybe even Fichtner calling plays.

Belichick resigned after the team moved to Baltimore, one of his few classy moves in his entire life, I think. He wasn't fired.

He was banging his head against the wall and wouldn't stop. Almost like he enjoyed it. Running Mendy for small or no gains again and again. Redman ran one time up the middle for 3 which is more than Mendy averaged all nite. Why no Redman when Mendy was stonewalled all nite long except for one play.

Okay. My point being that coaches always come from somewhere else and where that happened to be has no effect on the job they are currently doing. Many coaches have passed through Cleveland, and Cincy, and Detriot, and ARZ, and pick one.
