Default Props to Arians, I'm serious!

This coming from a season long Bruce Arians basher. Great game plan today Bruce. I don't know who was actually responsible for implementing the heavily called for I FORMATION but nonetheless, BRAVO BABY!

Sure I realize that it was only the Cleveland Browns but damn, that rushing attack looked good today BABY! I'm not trying to say I told you so but this has been my primary gripe with Arians all season, the fact that he failed to utilize the I Formation with a lead blocking FB.

That was a great step in the right direction. Look out AFC, here come the Pittsburgh Steelers!

I have to agree, the play calling was very good today.

OMG - has hell frozen over???

Arians really isn't the anti-Christ some of the bashers make him out to be. The OL did its job today and the running game prospered. 1 + 1 = 2.

Arians did a wonderful job for the offense today. I've ragged on the guy, but he did a great job today.

It also helps that there were few dropped balls today too.

Play selection was better, the O seemed more in sync, but it was Cleveland. The I formation was a long time coming.

Come on now Gal, yes the O-line did play better today but, you have to admit that we saw more runs from the I-Formation today then we have all season and it was quite effective.
