Well..I think it is time to eat my crow

The steelers poor offense wasnt because of Arians and his playcalling, but rather the offenses execution. The steelers are executing on offense (o-line is starting to click) which is opening up Arians playcalling.

I was wrong. There i said it.

In fairness, he has made some questionable calls. But I think people just don't like his more open offensive packages because we aren't used to them in the Burgh. People fear change by nature.

I think that had alot (alot) to do with it. Especially in the second half. Receivers were open all day & during the second half the offense seemed to play scared, not taking chances downfield. And I never expected Parker to gain a 100 yards or anything but I did expect alot more perimeter run plays to be called. (especially with how the speedy chris johnson carved up the ravens the week before) Instead they consistently ran up the gut (into the strength of the ravens big & slow front seven, namely ngata) & they were consistently stuffed. And on 3rd & 1 they go 5 wide with an empty backfield?! I'm not saying you have to run there (although it'd be nice) but to not have at least the threat of a running play with a back in the backfield in that situation....... That's just plain dumb play-calling.

It's as if the Steelers win despite the ineptitude of Arians play-calling & philosophy. (although i'm still trying to figure out what arians philosophy is) And all of the big plays made by Ben during broken plays gives credence to that.

I'm still for the firing of Arians.

he would be the perfect coach for the oakland raiders.

while it's been an excellent season and the offense has had execution problems, arians' playcalling leaves a lot to be desired.
