Default Assuming Arians is toast... Who do you want?

Just wishful thinking here. Who would you prefer to see take over this offense?

What? No Ron Erhardt????

In all seriousness, I don't know that LeBeau is untouchable either. Injuries? Age? ya, but our defense was not good this year and we know Tomlin loves the tampa two.

I really hope we stick with our defense. It can be fixed but this not blocking the weak side linebacker stuff is horrible. YOu can see it coming EVERY TIME.

A guy who is smart enough not to go away from what they cannot stop.

As much as I disliked him in Tampa, but saw how his offense performed in Oakland, I'd take Gruden as the OC.

Or smart enough not to stick with the plan when it's obviously not working.

That's been my main complaint about Arians (and the coaching staff in general, I guess). We start out trying one strategy, and whether it works or not, that's what we get THE WHOLE GAME.

Parker up the middle not working against the Ravens? Let's not use a different back or throw more screen passes -- we need to keep trying Parker up the middle.

Ben holding on to the ball and getting sacked every other play against the Eagles? Let's not call more quick slants -- we need to keep having him drop back and try to throw 40-yard bombs.

Running game erratic sometimes without the fullback? Let's still never use a fullback.

I mean, come on. We're good enough on offense that just running a straight-up game plan works more often than not, but you need more adaptability than that. I am not talking about running the wildcat plus 20 fleaflickers a game here; I just mean, how about learning from your mistakes every now and then.

I wouldn't say he is necessarily here to stay, but I do think Tomlin gives him one more season. Arians has health problems, as well, and may just opt to hang it up anyway.

If Arians is canned, I'd like to see the Steelers give Kenny Anderson a shot at the OC slot and then Batch can take over the QB coaching slot.
