BTW, I would have no problem with him saying he was sad to see him go, by all accounts they got along very well. HOWEVER, he will need to move on, and I suspect he'll do just that...
We can only go by what is presented to us, and Ben was the one that went to Tomlin in 2009 to save Arians's job and they both admitted to have a "father/son" relationship. Also, Arians just had an interview, spoken from the horse's mouth that Ben is "not happy" but "it's business."

Ben will need to get over this shit, they had their time together. Looks like Fitchner will be the guy and Ben seems close to him as well (taking him to Hawaii with him.)

When they say this I generally correct them by pointing out that I am a "Professional" pain in the ass.

Not even a big deal. QB's are often close to their OC and do this kind of stuff ALL the time and he's been quiet on the issue as well, which makes it all the more normal.

Funny thing is, I work with a guy just like you. He is absolutely a "Professional" pain in the ass, so I can safely say I've seen your kind before.

Let's just hope whoever the new OC is, allows us to put BA in the rear view real quick.

Amen..........wouldn't it be something if Ben decided to leave because of all this? It's kinda fun to muse that a move to sign Peyton Manning as QB, and then Jim Caldwell as OC would happen immediately afterwards........just musing though.

Which is why I'm sick of the non-stop articles and over-dramatized media backlash it has been causing over the days. I'm sure Rooney is sick of it as well.

didn't mr rooney get the memo that the offensive failures were the players fault for not properly executing ?

5 years of dragging that stinkin horse to water and he still wouldn't drink ...

The truth is that we're all a bunch of junkies hooked on Super Bowl wins and when we don't get our fix, we get irritable, we snap at everything and pretty soon the whole world just plain sucks.

But if we get our fix next season, we'll all seem as content and satisfied as a hundred dollar a day smack head who just found out his uncle died and left him five grand.




Of course, that five g's won't last forever, so...

Don't look at me.

I don't even know what a good OC is.
