I know Dixon can pass. He's accurate and has a strong arm. I'm more worried about him reading the defense, knowing where to go with the ball, and making good decisions.

Agreed. That is where experience comes in. That is the main reason, I thought we would go with Batch. If we could have Batch's mind, with Dixons ability, we would be 4-0, EASY

So basically every redzone play is called by Ben?...Im not blaming either one of them, its a team effort. Been a problem for a long time now.

When Ben threw that game winning pass to Tone in SB43 who did you give the credit to, Ben or Arians? I rest my case.

Didn't we get Arians from Cleavland? He needs to go, if you ask me his pass first, run second is against everything Steelers. We need to get back to hard nose, grinding out yards football. I Hate Arians, and he deserves all the criticism he gets, I haven't liked him since he came to Pittsburgh.

Arians needs to be fired. I have not liked him since day 1. The only reason why he is still around is because the Steelers have the talent to overcome his terrible ability at OC.

Tomlin did counter this sentiment the other day.

Quote:
Coordinator Bruce Arians was not happy that Dixon ran several times out of the pocket early in the preseason when he said receivers were open. Arians preferred Dixon throw the pass. But Tomlin said Monday that,

"We just want him to do what comes natural. If he's playing on instinct and knowledge, it's like running water.

"I think if you give him too much instruction in regards of things you're discussing then it's not going to be natural. It's not going to be fluid. It's not going to be natural. It's not going to be comfortable. And those are things I want his performance to be."

Sounds like Mike is saying "whatever gets the job done".
