Default Best Way to get rid of Arians

Had a boss once that told me the best way to get rid of an unwanted employee is to promote him, not fire him. It's too hard to keep all the neccessary paper and then worry about a lawsuit to fire the guy, so just promote him out and then he's someone elses problem. By the time they figure out he's worthless it's too late, not your problem anymore.

I think this would be the best way to get rid of Arians. The Steelers organization is an extremely patient one when it comes to coaching. Only 3 head coaches since 69. Even though the offense has sputtered, with a 12-4 record and the #2 seed, I don't believe we'll be making a move at OC this year. Unless someone takes him off our hands for us.

What we need is a run like 05, where the offense comes out firing. The pass spreads the field and sets up the run. Everything clicking, taking us all the way to SB #6. That kind of run would not only bring us another Lombardi, it may intice someone to take a chance on the offensive mastermind that executed it. Bye Bye Arians. Although, if the above happened we'd all probably be sad to see him leave.

Honestly, I'm kind of on the fence with Arians. I think the playcalling is suspect at times. But execution is partly to blame as well. The Steelers always seem to have a drive killer. Whether it's a sack, penalty, or turnover something always stops the momentum. We seem to get a lot of drives with one or 2 first downs out to midfield only to stall out. It's hard to open up the playbook and get the offense clicking with only 5 or 6 plays per series.

Yeah.....but how many times have you seen this defense give the ball to this offense with a short field, only to see them sputter with 3 poorly executed or poorly-planned plays that results in a Jeff Reed FG.

Offense and Mastermind arent word combinations used EVER when referring to Arians. It wasnt in Cleveland...damn sure isnt now. If any assistant is snatched from the rankings of this coaching staff, its gonna be LeBeau. Arians will leave Pittsburgh only as a fired assistant.

I've often thought this. Winning a Super Bowl is a surefire way to guarantee someone's going to come along and offer your coordinators a boatload of money to coach for them.

The mastermind part was sarcasm. I think most of the NFL knows this guy is not a great OC. But, that doesn't mean that a nice 3 game run to a SuperBowl wouldn't fool just one owner into thinking he's great.

I remember in 95, O'Donnell through 2 INT's to a relatively mediocre CB. My 9 year old could have picked those passes off. But he won the SB MVP and the next thing you know the Raiders are throwing $20 Million at the guy. He takes the money, only to never be heard from again. So much so that I can't even remember his name right now.

I'm just saying some owners: Davis, Jones, Snyder to name a few will throw money around on a whim sometimes. We may get lucky and win a Superbowl and lose a problem at the same time.

I'm afraid to say we are stuck with moron unless someone steals him from us. (PLEASE DO !!!!!!!!) Raiders need a coach. he would be a perfect fit for that organization.

Larry Brown. The correct answer was Larry Brown.

We would have also accepted Desmond Howard.

OK Alex, next I'll take "overhyped flash-in-the-pan free agents that the Raiders have overpaid for $800, please"

Larry Brown.

Thank You.

Still have nightmares about that last pick that they returned to our 6 yard line. Then punched it in to seal it a couple of plays later.

That's why, I think I'd rather be up 4 points with our D on the field needing to hold this time around.

Keep Him!!! But if needs must!

1) Tell the Israelis he's a member of Hamas?

2) Have a word with one of The Sopranos? (That may be less messy...and quieter than option 1)

3) Just sack him! (But wait until after the playoffs..........you never know).

4) Give him The Clowns HC job

Any of the above should be effective, one way or another (as Blondie once said)
