Default How can people blame everyone?

It's Bruce Arian's fault.



My God this guy is the WORST play caller i've ever seen. How he has kept his job this long is a miracle. Week after week Dick L and the D saves his sorry behind, but it didnt happen today. The offense couldnt stay on the damn field and it really hurt the defense bad.

Sure Big Ben played like crap too, but look at what he had to freaking work with. Good Christ, does anyone else notice just how bad Arians actually is? I'm thinking of walking up to Tomlin and handing him my application for OC with 0 experience....anything has to be better than Arians.

Willie Parker? He didnt do well either. Guess what? Who's job is it to recognize he's not playing well and put someone else is? He's just doing what the hell he's told to do. Not his fault either.

They're all equally responsible. Arians could have called better plays at times, BUT THE PLAYERS DIDN'T EXECUTE.

See I dont know if it's ben, willie or the offensive line. It just looks like arians schemes are terrible. We sure as hell shouldn't be in the bottom quarter in the league in offense. Please please rooneys.. with my madden expierence i'm confident I can call better plays with my cell phone in one hand and a beer in the other. I"m available... call me

It's hard to execute when they're lined up to stop what you're running. It's his job to know how to counter that. Look at Lebeau... thats why he is so great.

He should know his players limits and know what they can and cant do. He should know that WP couldnt do it up the gut and changed to Moore or ran different plays. If Ben is feeling too much pressure, run some quick slants and such to get the ball out of his hands.


Where is this?!?!?!?! Why do they only want to score when its close to being too late or it is too late? If the pass is working, you take it and you use it until you open up your running game!!

Arians sits back and calls the plays...but somehow Ben pulls those plays out of his ass whent hey crumble under the line and the intense defense. Ben can pull off some comebacks and miracles from time to time...but there's no accoubting for Arians making calls that Ben has to warp to make them happen.

i'm putting in my vote now... Cowher for Offensive Coordinator. =)

You know, I kind of agree with you both. But it does seem like a common problem in all of our losses has been the players not executing, and once that becomes obvious by the middle of the second quarter, we still keep trying the same damn thing over and over.

Funny you say that. Just a few weeks back a delayed draw was the fans choice of the week.

Hard to run up the gut with 8 -9 in the damn box and you're using a speed back.
