Default Ranking the offensive coordinators

12. Bruce Arians / Steelers
Despite some questions about whether Arians would be retained, evaluators contend that the Steelers' offensive coordinator should not be at fault for having to modify his philosophy because of the way the defense repeatedly put the offense in a trailing position.
SCOUT'S TAKE: "His running back (Willie Parker) was hurt all year. He's got (Rashard) Mendenhall, who is not real sure what to do and definitely does not know what to do against the blitz. The line is built to get leads, and then they can dictate the plan on offense, mixing up the power run and play-action. The offense basically struggled because the defense gave up so many quick points, and they were always in a hole, trying to catch up. Steelers football is winning ugly, 21-17. They are not built to have a 4,000-yard passer. They run the ball, play good defense and score enough points to win."

I thought Mendy did well picking up the blitz. I guess these sports writers aren't as smart as they think they are.

IMO Mendy is our best blitz pick up back on the team. I lost interest in the article after reading that part...

Until the Cleveland game we hadn't trailed by more than 7 points the entire season. And we blew signifiant leads in several losses. I think this guy missed every Steelers game this year.

That, right there, tells me that whoever wrote this did not pay attention to our season. We either started out fine and blew it at the end, or else the defense pinned them down the whole game and the offense played horrendously anyway. We definitely did not always "get into a hole, trying to catch up" unless you mean the last 5 minutes of the game.

Bears - Led 14-7 going into 4th quarter
Bengals I - Led entire game except last 14 seconds
Bengals II - Tied 12-12 in 4th quarter (lots of "quick points," huh)
Chiefs - Led 17-7 at half, 24-17 in 4th quarter
Ravens - Did not have our starting QB
Raiders - Led 10-6, 17-13, 24-20 in 4th quarter
Browns - Just sucked the whole game but still only gave up 13 points

Yeah, basically, this guy has his head up his ass.
