Default Anderson rumors

Heard Ken Anderson could be Arian's replacement in the offseason. After giving it some thought the rumor seems to make sense.

Anyone else getting word?

Where did you hear that? - IMO the heat is off Arians with the collapse of the defense and loss of Parker - may want to get Ben signed up first if his bond with Arians is as strong as claimed

Haiku.. to be honest with ya... at the hiring of Ken Anderson as our QB coach in last offseason I Would Have Said "That is the craziest thing I have ever heard of!!" But now that I see alot of improvement in Ben, I think that it might be a good idea. Ben is 3rd in the NFL in passing TD's and is 2nd in Over-All Ratings. That is an awesome stat after last year him leading the NFL in INT's.
I think that this could be a good idea. Arians did great the first 4 or 5 games, but since then our offense has been average..

Default Re: Anderson rumors

if this is true, lets hope anderson can shit an offensive line and coach them too.

i heard that about 5 insiders and those familiar with the system, are blaming kevin gilbride and his gusswork, read the defense, offense has been what is killing eli manning and the wr's all year in NYC. (much like it did when he coached here in pittsburgh).

anyone think the complexity and plays taking too long to develop is what the problem is with arians? im not sure if its just the new wrinkles or if arians offense is the equivalent of lebeaus complex defensive schemes.

do we bring in brian billick?

So is the rumor that Arians is leaving, on his own, or is being shown the door?

I don't believe this to be anything more than just another hair-brained rumor. I haven't heard anything that would lend any credence to this around the Burgh. If this were true, the local sports media would be on it like flies on poo.

My best friend is a Bengals Fan...I know....I know...I was raised near Cincinnati....but anyways, as a coordinator, the Bengal fans ridiculed Anderson the way we ridicule Arians.

I'm not sure what to think about Arians leaving. All I know is that we scored 400+ points with him as the OC and we have an All Pro QB and had the NFL's leading rusher until he was hurt...all the while with Santonio not being healthy for most of the season.

If I had one complaint about Arians, it's that I still think Heath Miller is underutilized. I think he can be every good as Jason Witten, but his numbers don't reflect it. I realize that Heath has had to stay in and help block for Ben, but hopefully that will be worked on this offseason.

Unless he plans to be an O-coordinator somewhere else (and I think his contract prevents that) I cannot see him moving on voluntarily - this link to HC candidates among coordinators does not include Arians
