IF this was the case, we would be 0-7 like the Bengals. Ted Tollner, Cam Cameron, Mike Martz, Bob Bratkowski, all suck worse.....mostly because of personell issues.

Its like saying that Kevin Gilbride is the best O coordinator in the NFL because they won the SB last season. Gilbride sucked in Pittsburgh, Buffalo, San Deigo.....all of a sudden he is a genius??

If the Steelers won, I would still be here criticizing the offense because of their incompetence and inconsistency. We can not perform like that week after week and expect to go deep in the playoffs!!

And if fansince'76 wants to go the "nevermind" route, then I'll assume you have nothing to say.

And Bruce Arians is the worst coordinator because he is such a failure at harnessing the explosive power we have!! The only reason he still has a job is because our defense is awesome, and, save for yesterday, Ben typically makes extremely good spur of the moment plays. He's the best quarterback out of the pocket, and has the highest passer rating after first contact. THAT'S WHY ARIANS IS STILL HERE. (Caps are for emphasis--I am not yelling.)

No one is saying he's the best offensive coordinator because they won the Superbowl. Most people recognize the great play by their defense, especially the D-line, and how they had a good running game with good run-blockers that managed to control the clock. The best coordinators don't always win the Superbowl. A great coordinator makes the most out of what he has. With that in mind, considering the players we have, Bruce Arians is a very bad offensive coordinator.

My point is there is no ranking system for coordinators and your statements like "Arians is the worst offensive coordiantor in the NFL" or he "is a very bad offensive coordinator" are just unfounded, unsubstantiated, exaggerated opinions.

Go back to the previous teams where he was a coordinator and you will find high scoring, explosive offenses in Indy and Cleveland, where those teams made the playoffs.

Some great coordinators dont make the most of what they have. Instead they need the right players to fit into their kind of systems.....which is what I dont like of Arians and his offense. He doesnt have the right personel for his type of offense, but it has nothing to do with "bad route running or lack of WR effort" as this thread is titled.

The WR's are running the routes as intended. Hines Ward is running a slow route in some cases to get separation. I dont know your age, but if you can remember Steve Largent, Brian Brennan, Ed McCaffrey type guys that arent burners and just get open.....that is what I think you are perceiving as "lack of WR effort".

I dont like Arians style of offense.....but I know he isnt the worst OC in the NFL.

d. lebeau is the best d-coord in the game and gilbride knew enough that that td toss to boss was almost a sure bet.

offens screwed the steelers game up, but a great defense, lost it in the end.

team game, team blame, team loss.

atleast we can go back to being "under the radar" (steelerfans love this one).

had we won, we woulda been on top of all the "power rankings" (steelerfans hate this one).

IMO, sweed is the only WR i saw run poor routes and that's most likely because he is a rookie.

i think the routes(plays) chosen were awful. it didn't appear that arians utilized the entire field to his advantage. also, i felt the should have look to miller more often.

Oh is that right? Then where exactly have you been for the past month? Playing tiddlywinks? It sure as hell wasn't here.

Bottom line...Steelers lost, you magically show up the very next day to bash them. When the Steelers were winning, you were nowhere to be found. Just like so many others. Lather, rinse, repeat.
