Default Bruce Arians will Remain Offensive Coordinator

http://msn.foxsports.com/nfl/team/St...amreport/67067

..."Mike Tomlin has decided to keep both of his coordinators but must find a replacement for secondary coach Ray Horton, hired by Arizona as the Cardinals' defensive coordinator."...

-----------------

Can't say I'm upset with the decision. I thought Brucey had a solid season.

he did a good job developing the young receivers. i hope tomlin takes charge of some of the situational playcalls though, because that's BA's weakness.

all things considered he did have a better season than his previous 2, but still underachieved considering the talent we have on O.

****, who am I kidding, he sucks and this offseason is already off to a bad start

Damn! Would have loved to see an upgrade at OC! Here's to another year of mis managed 3rd down attempts.

All hope is not yet lost.

Tomlin may want to keep the Inflexible Idiot, Airhead Arians but Dan Rooney may have other ideas. I'll grant that it's a faint hope but there is still hope that sanity will prevail and the Airhead will be gone. Also these are still only media reports from the same media that reported first that Dick Lebau and then Horton were going to the Arizona. I'll wait until we get an official announcement from the Steelers about keeping the moronic fool before I smash my head through the wall in frustration.

Firing him in the middle of a contract is one thing, but if I'm not mistaken his contract is up. Resigning him to a NEW, multiyear contract would be utterly assinine.

No idea what you are talking about. Our offense was fantastic on 3rd downs this year.

Agreed. Tomlin doesn't extend or resign contracts, the Rooneys do. They'll have the final say in it!

I don't loathe Bruce as much as some others do, but I think it's time for a change.

It would definitely delight me to no end if they made a change AND got better.

ie: a OC with a track record of proven success. Where does it leave us or what does it do for our anticipated success with the players in place if we go with a young unproven position coach who is getting his first shot?

this article was posted yesterday.

http://forums.steelersfever.com/showthread.php?t=70766

but i guees this can stand as its own topic. i was pretty certain he would remain regarless the outcome of the SB. he accomplished some things this year that were asked of him... primarilly not being afreid to run on 3rd and 1.

i hope one of the conditions of him getting a new contract is a gag order, cause lets face it.... he's a jackass and dumbasserey flows out of his mouth any time he opens it.

he doesnt attack a teams weakness? really???

pull your head out of your rectum bruce.
