Default Re: Actually Bruce Arians didnt call that bad of a game

This excerpt from an article in the Post-Gazette today on the woes of the running game indicates someone was not thrilled with the play calling Sunday night

One source on the team said the run calls against the Colts looked nothing like the ones they practiced the week leading up to the game.

If there is no improvemnt in Texas I look for more anonymous sniping to the media about the offensive woes

Bouchette's article also confirmed my recollection Redman was not used until late in the game

The Steelers did not use Isaac Redman to spot Mendenhall against the Colts as they did in their previous two games. He had his most significant playing time on the final drive, when the Steelers moved 60 yards for the winning 38-yard field goal.

My bet is we see significantly more time for Redman in Houston

Stockholm syndrome

Stockholm syndrome is a term used to describe a real paradoxical psychological phenomenon wherein hostages express empathy and have positive feelings towards their captors, sometimes to the point of defending them

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.
You see thats where I disagree strongly with just about everyone. A great run is 10+ yards. 90% of Mendenhall's great runs come between the tackles. Most of his losses come when the play is designed for him to hit the 7 or 8.

Mendenhall would be spoken in the same breath with AP as long as he consistently got (ONE!) second level block. Mendy will do the rest as he has proven. Open space in the middle of the field is hands down where he does his best work.

And if I hear any more bullshit about trading him Im going to flip! He is the reason Ben is alive! He is the reason Redman consistently does a good job running, and believe it or not he makes the offensive line look much better than it is!
