I dont refuse to give Arians any blame, I just refuse to call for somebody's job on a 2-1 team. I agree with you that many just blame the O line when:

-Arians could have called some screens, rollouts, etc to exploit the Eagle blitz
-Zeirline could have changed some protection strategies to protect Ben
- Ward and Miller appeared to run deep routes instead of recognizing the blitz on their side

But on a few plays, Colon got outquicked, Simmons and Hartwig got confused, Kemo jumped offside and Smith got beat.

Default Arians is terrible

I coach highschool and allstar football as a D-Line coach, but even i know you need to adjust when your O-Line is terrible in pass pro. What happened to 3 step get the ball out .
Ben has to realize this aswell.
Bring on Dennis Dixon, at least he can run!!!!!!!!

This is a good post for a challenged individual. You do very well and are very independent, Rick! Good for you! I'm sure the team you "coach" is very happy that they get to help out the community by sponsoring retards.

Go away dumbass...there is already enough stupid floating around this place. We don't need more.

Default Ok I now agree about Bruce A.

I have to say that a lot of the ineptitude of the offense is play calling. Why does every pass play have to be designed for 20 plus yards when the o-line can't hold for that long and you have not established the running game.

And on a play where we have 3rd and one we line up in a spread formation that says we are going to pass. If this is not fixed we will be in for a long season.

My thoughts at this moment is the offensive game planning has not changed we do the same thing each week and it is not working. With Willie P. out our offense looks horrible.

Hopefully this will improve and the defense looks bad because they are on the field to long.

I still will not concede that Arians is to blame for last week's debacle and this week's poor play by our O tonight. You can teach and design plays until you're blue in the face but if the players don't execute, which they clearly are not doing tonight, you're screwed.

Did anybody notice that the steelers just drove in with the no-huddle? Wouldn't this constitute the issue with Arians calling plays?
