Default What does Coach Tomlin See in Mr Arians?

Trib & Planet Steeler Refugee looking for a new home...

Guys, (and Gals)

I am new here so I apologize if this topic has beaten to death but as smart as a guy as Tomlin is why does he keep B.A.?

I do want to state that I am like a lot of other Steeler fans and have a hard time sitting back and being satisfied as we just won another Super Bowl. Maybe I am coming across as one of those Steeler fans who can never be pleased and always needs somethign to b!tch about.

With the way teams prepare and study tendancies I am shocked how Bruce calls a game with situational downs. Again, I know am nothing more than a fan but how many times you see them line up at the three yard line only to have the poor running back caught in the backfield. If you were to take the Steelers, Colts, and Pats* and place the ball on the three yard line we would be lucky to score 3 out of 10 attempts while the others would probably stick it in the endzone probably around 7-10 times.

I know I have heard the arguement that the coaches coach and the players play but who is ultimately responsible for that execution and preparation? Could it be that simple like we did not have the personnel?

Its no secret that our Oline is average at best but what about some roll outs and true 4-5 wide receiver sets and screens (OK forget the screens).

What can we do to improve or what would you like to see more of?

You are asking to be beaten to death by even daring to even ask this question.

I agree. I don't like the way he calls it on 3rd & short. May as well tell the other team what we're doing. Really doesnt make sense when we have some of the best hands in the league in Heath and Hines(MVP) not to mention Santonio(MVP). Wake Up Bruce!!!! Big Ben can keep just about any play alive and give you a great chance at scoring. Use this!!!

I don't like some of the calls he makes in certain situations but you can't argue the final product!

I'm not, but I'm also one of the ones who are old enough to have lived through and remember the entire "drought" (1980-2005) and don't take it for granted that a SB win is in the cards every couple of years. That's just me, though.

I don't know if we can't argue with the final product....I mean we're an average offense statistically right? I mean, we have some superstars on the offensive side of the ball, yet we are only average in yards, points, etc.

Took the words right outta my mouth.

I have no problem with Bruce Arians. Have you forgotten that Ben has the option on every down to change the play if he sees something across the line that doesn't look right? I've been a Steelers fan for a lot of seasons and I've always trusted our FO and our HC to do what they feel is best for the team - that is why they make the big moola.

If Coach T has every confidence in Arians, and obviously he does, who am I - a fan with no NFL coaching experience - to question his judgment?
