Default Memo To Bruce Arians.......

The time has come to run the no-huddle with Ben in shot-gun with 4 wide.....If they want Heath as one of those 4 wide then so be it......But for real with the struggles of the Oline in pass protection and even in run blocking....I think Ben in the shot gun running the no-huddle could keep defenses off balance so they can't tee off on him.....Just a thought.....

I like it.

It's time to revamp the o-line.

No huddle is good. They talked about all the time in preseason, and we never run it.

Is it too late to try and trade for a better O-Line player or two.?...I dont know who we would trade anyway though...

Exclamation Re: Memo To Bruce Arians.......

How about Arians changes the "predictable" run on 1st, run on 2nd, and throw on third and long.
I was at the Jets game and that is all he called the whole first half.
A little bit in the second half he changed it up.
But once we went up by 3 at the end he went back to being conservative and predictable.

"Bruce,

enclosed is a string cheese, a stapler, and 9 pennies. Save our offensive line."

The No Huddle would certainly be nice, but eventually, we're going to have to play ball control offense. We need to plug this leak as well as find new options. Running No Huddle... say... Week 13 is only going to start a shootout. I just don't think our line can play mistake free football as 60 minutes to win a shootout...

EDIT: I realize what sort of trouble I may be bringing to this thread with the mention of.... cheese.

I mentioned that last night that it was run,run,pass to much and putting Ben in to many 3rd and longs....With Oline struggles that type of play-calling is just letting defense tee off on Ben on 3rd and long.....

So I agree with you.....

3wr/1te/1rb is a great formation for us in the no huddle. but its supposed to be used throwing to open up the running game. everytime i see the steelers trying to establish the run with a single back formation (up the middle) i just cringe. its ass backwards.

its not a good play unless run out of the no huddle or if the passing game has already been established. otherwise its 7 in the box stacked against 5-6 blockers. im still not sure what to make of the offense. i think it was atl dan who pointed out we may be missing j. tuman alot more than expected (a point to which i agree). m. starks penalty shows this and spaeth was doing fine as the #3 te as opposed to #2.

sometimes i wonder if tomlin is enamoured with willie parker (whats not to love?) like cowher was with bettis. either way i really dont wanna see willie pounded up the middle, without a lead blocker, against 7-8 man fronts, no more. especially not if hes gonna be leading the league in carries.

willie is tough like ben... sometimes too tough. i love the smashmouth image as much as anyone, but i dont think we will suffer an identity crisis if we go no huddle and rely on the pass game. smashmouth will have ben mirror steve mcnairs career as opposed to b. farve, j. elway (or peyton or brady- who could very well play into their late 30's).

maybe some posters were correct when they suggested the steelers were just sitting on this opened up offense until later in the season. dumb move if you ask me. maybe tomlin turtle shelled it after the pass-first failed against denver.

The Steelers have a three point lead. Deshea Townsend makes a HUGE defensive play. Momentum is in the Steelers favor. Ball in Jets territory. What does Arians do? He doesn't put the game in Ben's hands to finish off the Jets. No. He plays not to lose and goes predictable run-run-pass. No creativity, no ingenuity, no quick 3-Step drops. Nothing. No adjustments whatsoever. The Steelers conceded the game right then and there. They didn't want to win. Hell no. Not with chicken playcalling like that.

When your O-Line is playing like shit and the run game is going nowhere, you don't do that. The question I have to ask is, why? Not letting the Jets dictate your style of play? Doing what we do? I thought we were past that caveman BS when Cowher left?

That's why the Steelers lost to the Jets. Wimpy, sissy playcalling. No aggressiveness or balls. Instead of playing to win, they played not to lose. That's why for years now the Steelers look like crap against bad teams. And I'm tired of it.
