LOL at all those critiquing the O line and coach. Like '76 said, a completely different O line and coach gave up 48 sacks in 2006.

BTW, when this "columnist" gets a job at a paper that has a circulation of more than 4, finds a thesaurus for a word other than "stink" and actually does some research other than reading this board.....then I will shower him with praise. Until then I will read the P-G or Trib.

You can still shower him...Here, I'll start.

Execution.

That is all.
You can lead the offense to the goal line but you still can't make it punch it in for a TD.

arians does stink along with the zone blocking scheme of our porno pimping OL coach

Columnist are only considered good when they they support ones oppinion, otherwise they're absolute

Columnist BEWARE! You can't win in chat forums. One side will hoist you up on their shoulders and paste you into the forum in heroes fashion, and just as that wonderful feeling of appreciation is sinking in, another section of the forum will pelt you with bottles, cans, snowballs, etc.

You don't have to change the system just because you change coordinators. Just get a coordinator that will get the damn idiots to do their jobs. Quit trying fancy stuff and BLOCK. Go back to basics. Quit trying to pass the ball all the time when you have run blocking linemen. Is it that difficult when someone who never played the game can see it? We have passed and passed against some defenses this year that can't stop the run for squat. I just don't get it. I can't stand Arians and nothing anyone says will make me change my mind. Even if we go all the way, it will not be him that leads us there. It will be Lebeau. We are winning DESPITE Arians.

I'd actually argue there's a different cause for that: The inconsistent running game. The season after Bettis retired, the same offensive line was in place but our sack total doubled, and it's stayed there ever since. Our per-game sack total also doubles or triples in games when we have a sub-par rushing attack (read: games where Parker got stuffed for 1-yard gains all day and we kept facing 3rd-and-9). Look it up if you don't believe me.

Yeah, the line could use some work, but on days when you gain 31 yards rushing on 16 carries, it doesn't matter if your line is filled with All-Pros -- the defense is going to come after the quarterback all day long, and you can only stop them so many times before the odds turn against you. Having a Parker-only rushing game has meant that's been hit-or-miss for the last three years; there are certain situations where opponents just don't have to respect the run.

In the last game, we took some much-needed steps toward spreading the workload around and using the right backs in the right situations. If we can just keep doing that and make opponents be more honest in their run defense, it's going to make all the difference in the world in our sack totals.

Well, like I said, the line could still use some work. I still don't think it's the sky-is-falling type of trouble some people are bemoaning, but there's definitely room for improvement. It should also be pointed out that we had a hell of a lot of pass attempts last game.

I guess the real point is, I just think being able to run the ball more consistently (and with more variety) is going to avoid a lot of those utterly miserable games where we can't seem to do anything right on offense. High sack totals usually come along with those kinds of games. We had a medium to high amount of sacks last game, but the difference I saw was that we had a lot better luck moving the ball, and we didn't look helpless on offense and let the sacks kill us. Now, if we could just work on getting the ball across the goal line when it counts, we'd be unstoppable.

We'll see if this keeps working for us. I hope it does. And if they back off the Parker-only running game, I'll back off the Parker-sucks complaints.

Sunday. Late in the first quarter, he tried to throw the ball on a goal-line situation, when anyone who's ever seen a football game knows it's best to pound it in. When Arians finally did try to run up the gut, he did so on fourth down, and Mewelde Moore got stuffed, and the Steelers got nothing out of the drive.
Talk about not being honest with the facts.

Haven't we seen the Steelers goal line runs stuffed about 7 or 8 times in the last few trips to the goalline?

What does that tell you? IT says, WE CANT RUN THE BALL INTO THE ENDZONE.

Regardless of why at this point... we have to do something else... SO PASS.

Are you serious? The Steelers shouldn't attempt running the ball into the endzone because they've been stuffed 7 or 8 times?

Well OK, I guess that they had better abandon the passing game as well because the QB has been sacked like 50 times and thrown about 12 interceptions.

Pick your poison, run or pass. I say run the damn thing, I would rather they be stuffed for no gain as opposed to being sacked or intercepted. Goal line package, put a damn FB in front of Parker or Russell and run the ball right up the gut 3 straight times. If Arians would get away from motioning the blocking TE and attemtpting to stretch the ball carrier wide, then a running play would probably work. UP THE GUT MAN! UP THE GUT!
