Bruce Arians speaks

December 16th, 2010

Here are some excerpts from Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians’ weekly chat with reporters Thursday.

Q: How concerned are you by the offense’s inability to score touchdowns in recent weeks?

A: “It’s going to work itself out. We’ve just got to make some plays. The two areas that have been poor are our running game, and our first and 10 passing has not been very good. Probably a little bit my fault going for the end zone too much instead of going for a couple of short ones but it always works itself out.”

Q: Do you steer clear of throwing at a cornerback at good as Darrelle Revis or do you have to avoid having that kind of mindset?

A: “You read your reads and the coverage dictates where you’re going to throw. When you start throwing away from people you start throwing into coverage. Guys have got to beat him and you’ve got to throw it and catch it. He is a heck of a player as is Antonio (Cromartie) but you can’t dodge players whether it was Deion Sanders or whoever it was in the past.”

Q: How tall of a task will it be for the offensive line to keep quarterback Ben Roethlisberger upright against the Jets?

A: “(Jets head coach) Rex (Ryan) has always had a fantastic blitx package. It’s very similar to the Steelers in that they have a lot of confusion before the snap. Add a little confusion to a very good pass rush and your offensive line’s got their hands full. Same thing when James Harrison and (LaMarr) Woodley are running around. You’re not thinking about your set, you’re thinking about who the heck you’ve got.”

Q: How impressed were you with Jets center Nick Mangold when he was coming out of college?

A: “I thought he was going to be a good player. I wouldn’t trade (Maurkice) Pouncey for him.”

Q: How much of a concern are the holding penalties that have been called against the Steelers, and how do you rectify that problem?

A: “You can call (holding) on every play if you want to. We’ve bounced outside and made some long runs, and their judgment was we restricted a guy. Our judgment was we let go. You can’t win so you’ve got to keep your hands in and you’ve got to do a better job of getting the body in position. Most of our holding penalties have occurred on the inside running play that has bounced outside. If a guy’s got inside out position he has to feel the defender and let him go because Rashard (Mendenhall) will outrun him. It’s better technique and knowing when to let go.”

Really are you retarded? Work itself out. that must be the stupidest thing I've ever heard. And no shit you go for the endzone too much, just get the first down and move on. And the running game is not weak, your play calling is weak. It's run up the middle and thats it hope for the best. Sure Pouncey is the best lineman but it's too obvious.

'it's going to work itself out'

i stopped reading after that, fire his ass.

REAL coaches recognize problems and fix them. a piece of shit o-coordinator that probably isn't qualified to coach pee wee football says any shortcoming will 'work itself out'. if not for the high talent level of our squad we'd be dead last in offense

I feel stupid for not thinking this wouldn't work itself out. So are teams going to adjust so that the bullshit we do starts working?

Lastly, stop placing the blame on Bruce Arians. Obviously it's only "a little bit" his fault and the blame has to be directed to all others.

The practice of Bill Parcells, which Belichick and other coaches have implemented, is that only the HC speaks to the media

Since I assume LeBeau would not care, Tomlin needs to consider such a policy to shut this gas bag up

I agree this will "work itself out" - by hiring a new offensive coordinator
