Give Arians some credit for going to the no huddle. Still would have liked to see some quicker designed drops and screen passes to get the blitz off balance.

That and 3rd and 1 and he goes to spread formation???? I thought his use of McHugh in the backfield blocking was great.....hope to see a bit more of that.

My understanding was that it was Ben's call to go no huddle.

In the post game Ben said that he asked Tomlin and Arians to let him go no-huddle.

A subtle vote of no-confidence in Arians by Big Ben or Big Ben trying to bail out his coach????

I think he was just looking for a tempo change.

The No-Huddle just speeds the process of getting plays in and simplifing the offensive formations. Another advantage is that the defence is unable to rotate players in and change coverages.

That being said, I don't think our players got set fast enough to dicount substitutions. I could see a few thimes they were still able to change. Still, Ben's call for it was needed. They weren't getting any kind of rhythm before...Hell, they weren't even getting 1st downs.

I believe that sparked the whole team. After the Holmes TD, the sideline finally looked like they had some life. The D got pumped, and went out and made a HUDGE play. Woodley's foot wedge was played perfectly!

The momentum of the game definately changed when they started the no-huddle. No doubt about it.

Until the OC becomes responsible for actually EXECUTING the plays, Arians is just fine in my book. Yeah, last week wasn't his finest hour, but the playcalling was much better last night. The team just needs to execute better...

Thank God - finally someone who gets it.

Couldn't have said it better, revs.

Last week Arians was getting thrown under the bus by a lot of people, you have to give him credit for the second half adjustments last night. Zero sacks in second half. The only play calling I was whining about was when we had first and goal at the ten, and later first and goal at 5. We kept running a smaller back up the gut without success. Granted if Moore would have got to end zone I would have been silenced. I just kept wanting play action and hit Miller or Spaeth. Ben also deserves a lot of credit. His numbers weren't great, I will blame him for one sack just because I don't want to be a homer. He never really was able to get into a rhythm, every pass attempt was scrambling, sidestepping or out of the pocket yet he still made some key plays. Its not like his interception was bad judgement or a bad throw, just unable to hold onto ball.

I agree with Stogie. Arians has had the past 2 games as somewhat suspect in handling the blitz, but has to get credit for making some 2nd half adjustments this game.

I too would have liked to see some playaction passing around the goaline. Joe Flacco got an easy TD pass off play action....why couldnt the Steelers????
