Default Re: Steelers Offense is slow

The biggest concern that the Steelers have is protecting the QB... I dont care if Ben holds onto it too long... but I think we need to quit worrying... last week we had odds against us without Cheech and Holmes... Holmes is a stud... he is the slant route, he is the quick out... the playmaker... we all love hines as the guy... but he can't take it for six everytime he touches the ball... we need to utilize the speed the steelers have... i.e. holmes, and nate washington... (nice big play reciever)...

BUT despite my ramblin' i miss Jerome Bettis and the Steelers ability to take a small lead and eat the clock and slowly grind it out, our defense is stellar, maybe the best we have ever seen...in all honesty...

i think we need to part ways with bruce arians... the scripted plays are not cutting it.... at all... he just makes no sense at alll... at all...

I actually liked Mark Malone.....as a WR.

Its Kent Graham that killed me. What about Jim Miller, Mike Quinn or Mike Tomczak??

I guess the OP is advocating a no huddle run n' shoot offense

I have problems with the offense too . . . but a one-touchdown loss against the NYG seems to be generating a little more heat than I would have expected . . .

it feels like we dont run enough timing routes, that or we just really suck at executing them.. our pass plays nearly all take 5+ seconds to develop because the plays call for the receivers run down field and try to improvise too much. ben rarely, if ever makes throws before the receiver finishes his route. you see curl routes and slants from peyton manning when he would release the ball before his receivers even broke their routes. i dont think the chemistry is there for some reason with ben and the receivers.

its hard to explain.. but instead of throwing the ball to receivers in stride, ben has a habit of letting them finish off their routes and then let them improvise while he evades blitzing defenses.

Sure, but marching down the field and eating 7 minutes off the clock for a field goal is less than stellar.

Yeah, I guess the Giants are apologizing all week for the 4 FG's and clock eating drives they had last week I'm sure the media and NFL wants them to win in a more "stellar" manner.

They dont ask you "how did you win?".......they ask you "How Many Wins Do You Have?"

It is the way we lost that makes this one sting so much... our defense looked great for that whole game and then to have a bad snap and 4th quarter TD sink us was a little too much to take... we should have easily beat the Giants. If it hadn't been for Colon's hold that game was over on that Nate TD. Ben has got to get his timing down better... he looks completely lost after the snap until he scrambles and someone improvises... it is like he can't read the routes until his WR's stop and turn to him... you rarely ever see him release the ball when his receivers are in stride. One other EPIC FAIL for Arians is his inability to get Heath involved... why have all these gimmicky 3 TE sets when you never throw to the TE...

one could also say...

5-0 vs. teams with an average winning % of .333

0-2 vs. teams with an average winning % of .714

if he didn't hold the defender BR might not have gotten that pass off.

maybe the steelers will meet them in the SB.
