He stated that Tomlin didn't like the 60/40 pass/run ratio. And he was very unhappy with situational football. As well as all the sacks. Now, where have I heard that before?

I'm not an Arians apologist by any means and I do agree that he should be replaced because he does lack in creativity, but if Tomlin wanted to solve the 60/40 ratio, maybe he should have been a head coach and make Arians do what he wanted to do. And also, if he wants to cut down on sacks, he may need to talk to Big Ben a little as well.

Steelers need a O-coor who can mold Ben into a more healthy way of playing. 50 sacks a year will cut his career short by 3 or 4 years. If you do not believe me, go watch Steve McNair play. he last 11 years. Good by NFL standards, but a great QB should be able to play 14 to 15 years like Elway, Montana, Marino and Favre.

I had posted a couple weeks back that there was a rumor that Arians supposedly had a clause in his contract that only Art II could fire him. Supposedly put in place with Cowhers' help since he and BA were tight. Of course, I don't know for sure if that's the case, but if true, that would tie MT hands pretty good.

Well I guess we all saw this one coming. Some people liked him, some didn't. Lets just find the right person to fill the role.

Buccaneer Head Coach Morris fired his OC 10 days before the season-opener, then took-over the DC position himself with 5-7 games to play, because he didn't like the way things were going:

If it's true, it's the greatest news of the day.
