Default For the Arians bashers/haters and those on the fence

I'm curious who you think is a realistic replacement for Arians? Y'all seem to have a phenomenal football acumen so let's see your suggestions as opposed to the usual Arians sucks. From reading opposing teams game day threads it would seem that there isn't a decent oc in the league.

I have a wad of chewing gum stuck under my chair right now that I think might work out pretty well for us.

I'm not a big Arians hater but I do have a big gripe.

He knows that our OL is weak. And if they are getting beat time and time again - we need plays that are really quick throws.

We need about 10 different variations of quick throws that we can go to if our OL is playing poorly .

It seems that our offense is not properly prepared to execute these short passes

You're right. Every time I talk to a team who's offense isn't putting up 30 plus a game the first person to be damned is the OC.

I can't tell wether it's the play calling or poor execution, but it seems like our offense is so inconsistent and underperforms considering the talent we have.

There are many factors, including injuries to the O-line, Roethlisberger missing 4 games, developing rookie wr's. I don't particularly like Arians, but I'd be willing to see what he can do next year with all the pieces put together (if that's possible).

Maybe Wisenhunt will want his old job back if ARZ has another year like this one.

they were yesterday.

they unveiled some new wrinkles.

i was hoping norv turner would be fired, and wouldnt have been opposed to charlie weiss if he wasnt going to the gators.

last year somebody suggested the panthers OC (cant remember his name). it wasnt a bad suggestion.

i do think arians has done enough to improve and will probably be rewarded with a contract offer from the rooneys.

There's always that octopus in Germany that did such a fine job during the World Cup...
