Default Bruce Arians stay or go?

So the Gazette along with alot of others say its not Arians fault. You also have the other people who think he SHOULD go. Our last offensive coordinator started us on the path of more passing with Tommy Maddox and Bruce seems to have taken it to an even higher level and pretty much deleted the FB position. What do you guys think? I personally think its not all his fault (Arians) but alot of it is. I think he was much better as an assistant coach. His wide receiver coaching days seem to really have affected his play call. Some of the main hot topics of criticism seem to be not using the no huddle and not using more two and three step drops among others. Also the complaints about Moore at the goal line getting stuffed in the Colts game, people have not mentioned the fact that after the game the Colts defense admitted they KNEW the play was coming so maybe Bruce made another bad call.

Always have been and still all for KEEPing Arians. He is not the one out there throwing the ball or running it, and at that rate throwing INT.
His play calls def. the first drive of th game are excellent calls and they still consider Arians one of the better Offensiv Coordinators in the league and i can agree with that.

As I've said before a coach can only coach so much ad players have to execute or it all falls apart.

Sometimes our offensive players execute and you see the results. When they don't - you see the results. I think Arians has some great plays but they can't be run if other plays prior aren't executed. Plays set up other plays...just like having a good running game sets up the PA.

I have a hard time blaming Arians for everything. Toss up.

Keep him! He sometimes will make the offense fall asleep, but is his fault or the players?? maybe a bit of both?

The only people who have an opinion that matter are the Rooney's, Colbert and Tomlin. Since they are all happy, and I don't expect any of them will be posting a vote, this is just a tad superfluous.

Besides, he'll be hired away as a HC next year anyway.

You may have hit on something there, Shaun. We are relying WAY too much on the pass, IMO. Our most successful offensive schemes were based on the running game. But BA seems to be trying to boost Ben's passing percentage and the receivers' stats and its backfiring....badly!

I agree that it's up to the players to execute the plays...but what if those plays are not that great to begin with???
