Angry "but the Colts win games without a running game..."

I've been seeing this comment in numerous posts lately. The problem is that Arians thinks the exact same way! Now I love Ben and I wouldn't trade him for any qb in the league, but BEN IS NOT MANNING!

This idiotic assessment of how your run an offense is what got us in trouble. Arians does not know how to use the talent around him and it seems that he thinks on the same level as the fans that post this BS and that isn't a good thing.

Your thoughts...

The Arians argument is OLD. What is this, thread 10?

True, I was just reading some through some posts and it got the best of me. Should have cooled off before I made another post about it.

The Colts' D, for all its faults, also produces turnovers and makes plays when it has to (see red zone INT of Orton this past Sunday as the latest example), something our defense has failed to do during this 5-game skid.

Yep.

Not only that, but they are able to run when they have to. Kind of interesting that they have one of the few 100 yard SB RB's in the last 15 years.

The Steelers can't be built like the Colts because
A) The Steelers O-Line is not good enough
B) The Steelers receivers are not good enough
Ben is really not the problem here.

what i'm tired of is people thinking that the pittsburgh running game should be mendenhall and parker. i like mendenhall but we need a big back, if we had one then3rd and 1 wouldn't be an issue.plus i don't know about you guys but with recent cuncussions big ben sneeking on 4th and inches makes me very very nervous.so it's seems logical to have a mendenhall- big back one two punch.... sorry parker

Sorry to disagree with you there, but I would put our three top WR's against anyone else in the league.

Let Peyton Manning throw to our top three guys and see what happens.

The line... well, they have come a long way from last year. But there is still a problem there. Now, however, I think it is a lot more scheming than anything else.
