Default So what does Arians do if Ben...

...gets suspended? I was just listening to Colin and Steven A Smith discuss the Big Ben situation and they both were of the opinion that even if Ben is found innocent, because he's put this negative light on the NFL he should probably still get a suspension.

Steve said 4 games.


So, if Big Ben were to miss the first 4 games of the season, what would that mean for the Steelers offense? Does anyone really think Dixon or Charlie Batch, or ANY free agent QB can come in and run Arians offense the way Ben does it?

I'm just posting this as a topic of discussion. I don't think Arians is a good situational coach, so it wouldn't surprise me if he were to call the game exactly like he does with Ben and expect the same results.

Do you think Arians can make our offense good enough to produce for 4 games without Ben being back there?

He would have to pare things down for either Batch or Dixon and rely on the defense and running game.

Dixon would get a lot more snaps and playing time in preseason to help him prepare. He would get a bigger playbook for those games because he'd be more prepared...remember in the Ravens game last year, they didn't know Ben wasn't playing until Saturday I think....and Dixon still did a nice job. If they find out now that Dixon is the starter the first 4 games, he will be plenty prepared. Hope it doesn't come to that obvoiusly.

My daily question for Steelers' offense is, "what does Arians do next?"

You have the audacity to ask what he'd do? How dare you question the man who sweeps the fleet footed Mewelde Moore on 3rd and 3? The genius who knows the opponent is stacking the line on third and one so he goes to the empty backfield and throws it instead? The master of the red zone sleight of hand that gives us the Carey Davis sweep from the two? The five man blocking scheme against the blitzing Eagles? You dare to question this beautiful mind? I'll tell you what he'll do, he'll dazzle you.

Why would they be asking for a DNA sample?

Oh I forgot Ben was convicted sentenced, and suspended all season long(Insert Sarcastic Smiley)! These threads will pop up all the time while this investigation continues.
