Default "We don't attack people..." - POST GAME INTERVIEW

I didn't put this in the Fire Arians thread because I'm not just posting this to bash him. This is actually what he said in the post game interview and I think it deserves it's own thread to be discussed.

Wow... I can't believe I just heard this. I was browsing another forum and a member quoted BA as saying something like 'we don't attack players'. I just couldn't believe that he would say something like that so I googled the interview and sure enough, he did!

When asked about attacking the middle of the field because Woodson was out he said that we don't attack players and we just call a play and let the QB run it out.

And it didn't stop there....he also said that we didn't make any adjustments and would have played it exactly the same even if Woodson was in.

Here is the link to check it out yourself. Arians Post Game Interview

That is crazy. I wish the Packer's OC believed in that- they wouldn't have thrown at McCrappy and Gay all night.

alright tomlin it's up to you.

i like mike, but if he won't fire arians he's going to become part of the problem. the pack loses 2 key db's and you DON'T attack it? talk about stupid! you know gay and toast mcfadden were being attacked directly. that COULD be why the packers won. in fact, it's a huge reason why they did. exploit the players that are the weak links.. duhhh.

Well at least he's consistent. He's never adjusted his approach to how the offense should work and I wouldn't expect him to adjust to the situations presented to him during the course of a game. Furthermore, I believe ... uuuuhmmm, urrrrb, grrrlllp ....


Aahhhh, Arians,

You have to wonder what goes thru Tomlins head, did he ever think about canning Arians?.....Or are they best buds who hang out for dinner and a movie? I dont think i ever seen him chew out bruce.

But wait....if your gonna argue a point, stay consistent. There's a thread on here linking to an article about how the Steelers may have "run away" from a chance to win, by abadoning the running game.

So...if your not running, your throwing. And one would assume your throwing to who is open. If the backups were able to cover their man....nothing changes.

running the ball would have been attacking a weakness. throwing to heath miller would have been attacking whatever safety was backing up woodson. throwing to ward would be attacking the lesser db (which worked when they DID throw his way). Throwing to tramon williams and into the strength of the packer secondary constantly trying to force it to wallace = not attacking a weakness
