Default Arians...vote

Am I the only one who thinks Arians has been developing Ben (he helped develop Manning). I think the Steelers have decent plays except because of the O-line he couldn't run when he wanted to. I agree they needed to work on their Red Zone playcalling.

People have been out to fire him since '07. lol So now you can vote.

I'm hoping this is Arian's year. That aweful line hampered his playcalling. I'm excited. It is good that he has the pressure and the spotlight. Even with all of that' he still put up 23 PPG (12th in the league).

Imagine how good we will be with better running and Ben more focused (and looking the Best Arians has ever seen him).

The thing is it might be popular to jump on the fire Arians, he will suck this year but at the end of the year, I will look for this thread again. My prediction is one of the best offenses we've had in recent years once Ben comes back.

Do you think he will do better this year with a better O-line and Ben more focused or not?

I'm going to predict if we take the O stats from when Ben comes back and prorate it (and an extra quarter) we will be a top 10 offense.

what makes you think ben wasn't "focused" last year ?
my theory for much of last years rushing failures were largely caused by lack of practicing run blocking in practice.... mendenhall all but confirmed it when he said they were putting a lot more emphasize on running the ball in practice...is that a just a coincidence ? i mean after the boss commented on it and all....of course why would arians have wasted time practicing run blocking when your planning on throwing most of the time..

Stupid is as stupid does.

No...He'll still make the bone headed decisions, like throwing every down in a blizzard.

I think Ben was focused last year...fine...but he will be even MORE focused and dedicated after this offseason. He did make some mistakes last year and he admits he can get better. Arians said that this is the best he has ever seen Ben look.
Perhaps I should have said "better calibrated".

I hope you are wrong and he is better. He has openly admitted that he was limited because of run effectiveness and made calls he otherwise wouldn't have made if the team was able to run. Maybe Adams (or Kugler) was helping the running game. This will be a good test Sunday as the Falcons are a top 10 defense against the run. Their weakness is the pass where they are in the mid to late 20s, I believe, so if we have to pass, let's do it. Robinson didn't play a single preseason game and said he won't feel ready until he actually plays his first game.

I am pleased with the poll results thus far. I think we will have a great year.

Arians has had to deal with a Bad line his whole tenure as OC. He has had to adapt his pass plays and cut back on the run because they just couldn't do it. It's been a while since we've had the confidence to run on 3rd and 3 yet we were doing it in the preseason. I hope the regular season can match that.

Watch the offense be prolific once Ben is back.
