Default Ward Criticizes Coaching Staff

"The coaches have to put us in a better position," said Hines Ward, as tenured a Steelers player as you can find and a man who had just wasted a 10-catch, 128-yard performance. "All of us have to look in the mirror, but we're all in this together; the coaches have to evaluate themselves as much was we do."
Had he posted this here, would he be labeled as a badwagoner or a "sky is falling" fan?

Ah, but notice he doesn't pin ALL the blame on the coaching staff (or one coach in particular), while absolving himself or his teammates?

It's ALL about execution! I truly believe that some of the players should be executed!

This is going to be taken out of context, and already has.

Ward was simply pointing out that ALL personnel involved in the organization have to reevaluate themselves and refocus and redirect. That's all.

No, no, no...you guys clearly are taking this quote completely out of context. This:
"The coaches have to put us in a better position," said Hines Ward, as tenured a Steelers player as you can find and a man who had just wasted a 10-catch, 128-yard performance. "All of us have to look in the mirror, but we're all in this together; the coaches have to evaluate themselves as much was we do."

CLEARLY means: "This is all Bruce Arians fault!"

The special teams' play does remind me of the 70's Buccaneers.

My personal fav is five wide, empty backfield in the redzone on 3rd n 1. At least pretend it might be a run play, its not like Mendy was having a good game or anything. He was only averaging 3.8 per carry.

So true. It clearly looks like Ward is blaming the coaches for his lack of execution. Oh, wait.....Ward had a good game.

Then, it looks like he is blaming the coaches for the play selection. Oh, wait......Ben can apparently audible or go no huddle whenever he wants.

Then he must be saying that its not a problem with coaching, because we all know and trust the coaches to coach....but the players just dont execute, which results in losing. Yeah, that must be it.

So, for all the people who clearly know more than the rest of us about football, what exactly WAS Ward criticizing, since we're too stupid to understand, and some of you are clearly much more intelligent than us?

He couldn't be talking about the horrific defensive break-downs, I'm sure, that allowed multiple plays of 20+ yards to occur at KEY times. Nor could he be talking about the special teams which basically spotted the Chiefs 7 points. I'm SURE he could ONLY be talking about Arians, but, then again, I am but a humble and ignorant fan, lacking any semblance of knowledge of football, and must throw myself on the mercy of those true professional football geniuses who post here.

I'm also confused. I know I'm not that knowledgeable about football, but is Ben now NOT allowed to audible at the LOS if he sees something he doesn't like? So he's allowed to have some input, but ONLY in the no-huddle, and he's not allowed to request the no-huddle if he thinks it might help?

As I said before, I knew we were in trouble when Arians ran out and tipped Millers pass out of his hands, resulting in an INT. Or when Arians hit Ben as he was passing resulting in another. Arians also had it in for us calling all those penalties. The worst was Arians playing defense and allowing all those big plays. Damn you, Bruce Arians, damn you!
