Oh joy - yet another Arians bashing thread. YAY!

As I've said many times, you can lead a horse to water but you can't make it drink.

Execution.

That is all.

Just wondering what everyone will be saying about our O-line should we make it to and win in Tampa in February?

So what do you think this guy would say knowing that Ben actually called 75% of the plays in the last game?

Can anyone say "shoddy journalism".

Terry called all his own plays. But then again, he was a Man-God.

Here is all I want, don't try to out think the room on every play. Sometimes, running the ball is a great call on 2nd and 8, or 3rd and 6. You need a run game for Play Action to work, the 1st play from scrimmage play action pass is just a crap call. Establish the running game, then use it to set up the potentially very potent pass game. Now with Willie Back, I believe we will be able to do this.

Yeah, this is a lame, badly written story. It stinks.
I agree with hipchest (and probably others). It would be way worse to have to teach everyone a whole new system. Way better to just stay and keep improving with what they have - it's fine. They played well Sunday - As rev said - Ben calling 75% plays? Wow. Keep that going.
And sports writers have nothing better to do than dig when there isn't much dirt.

This guy calls himself a journalist?? You would think a professional writer could come up with something a little more creative than "the asst coaches stink" for a title.

How much you want to bet this guy loved the one two punch of Mendy and Sweed on draft day, but can't for the life of him figure out why the Oline is so bad??

LOL at everyone critiquing the writer...

He brings up 2 people that I would love to see fired. I hate Arians. He is absolutely terrible at play calling and game planning.

Our O-line IS terrible. They can't pass block to save their lives. They suck at picking up blitzes and their run blocking is nothing to write home about.
