You can stick Dan Marino back there and he still wouldn't be able to get a pass off.

The Offensive Line sucked, plain and simple.

Arians isn't the best play caler in the league by a longshot, I don't like his play selections at all. But saying fire him now? That's retarded. At least let him finish out this season, then after two years of questionable play calling (In my mind) evaluate whether or not you want him. The owners and managment my be in favor of the job he does.

Arians surely made excellent calls on many occasions, but you can see the great call because Ben was on the ground.

Ben looked good Week 1 and 2 with the play calls...why? Because he had time to throw and Willie had spaces to run in. He didn't today and that Arians fault. NO!

Wanna talk about a real problem...the OL and the OL COACH!
I know that Arians is not on the field playing every down(Duh!) but man, football is all about match- ups and adjustments. Its a chess match. If the plays you're calling as a coordinator are getting exploited, you do something to different! Staying in the same sets and continuing to run the same plays, is just dumb! The eagles defense is solid, but we made them look all world today.
By blasting Arians I'm in no ways excusing the poor play of our Line...they suck, but Arians and Coach Z has to do a better job of making some in game adjustments so they dont get exploited!

Watch the first series we ran again.

It was brilliant playcalling.

Then the Eagles went blitz crazy, and exposed a flaw in our OL.

Stupid is as stupid does, but, thankfully, out coaches aren't stupid. We'll fix the problems next week.

And if he said any different publicly he'd be called a crybaby. I hope he's chewing their asses privately.

My Observations

First Arians indeed called a poor game and has done that before. The Eagles decided to all out blitz and the Steelers never countered with draws screens flat passes and quick slants and fly patterns all which could have countered the blitz schemes.

And they never even attempted to establish a running game instead used deep handoffs for up the middle runs right into the oncoming blitzes

I also blame Ben. This for the first time. When you are getting blitzed on every play you must just get rid of the ball throw it away or throw quick patterns but at least stop holding on to it

The only thing Arians did wrong was not preparing for the sack that we had on 3rd and 1 when leftwich was in the game.

we should've had the ST teams ready but instead blew 10+ seconds trying to regroup and lost anyway...

whether it was tomlin's call or arians call that should've never happend..
