People who actually think that Arians is the worst offensive coordinator in the league don't know their asses from their elbows. He's not even the worst offensive coordinator in the division. I swear, sports fans have no sense of perspective sometimes.

You're right. Let's just tick off Ben's offseason blunders:
  1. Motorcycle accident after everyone told him not to ride and if so, wear a helmet.
  2. Sex with a nut-job in Vegas and getting sued over it.
  3. The detour to a restroom in GA.
  4. Talking BA out of retirement.

Having trouble deciding which was his greatest sin.

I totally disagree with the concept of not having a true FB on the roster and shake my head at some of the play calls, but he can't be the worst OC as he hasn't totally screwed the team out of their winning tradition.

Can you name me another OC in the league that wouldn't attack a secondary, in the Super Bowl, after the two starting CB's go out?

There's a famous Arians quote to go with this that just adds to how big of a dipshit he is from after the game.

I'll give you the benifit of the doubt and say he may not be the worse. However, I have a hard time believing there are too many below him. Ask yourself this. Why is a OC that has been to the playoffs and WON Super Bowls not coveted by other NFL teams?

Because he sucks!

Half the NFL teams' fan bases hate their OC...........

most of those other fans haven't watched their OC win a super bowl

What team in our division has more talent on offense? I'd say zero....so it would be a safe assumption that we dominate the division in points scored...right?

How many teams in the NFL have more talent on offense? I don't think anyone would argue otherwise that we are at least in the top 10 in terms of talent on offense....yet we consistently struggle to score points. Add in the fact that our defense is among the best in the league, and often sets up our offense to succeed. I think it's not a stretch to say the Steelers offense is poorly coached....or managed. The consistency of our offenses struggles are glaring. The only reason Arians is kept around is because of our winning % I hope Arians is giving half his check to Dick Lebeau.

I don't think the past few years the Steelers offense has been near the top in talent (maybe 10th, but no higher). The O-line has been in shambles and it's hard to reflect "talent" when the line sucks. In fact, the great talent usually was forced to overcome the shortcomings of that line ... which often resulted in a mediocre performance.

Having said that, if the line can finally avoid the injury bug, find a solution at RG, see Pouncey improve over an outstanding rookie year and not allow Scott to sh!t the bed at LT, then I will say this team has the chance to be a very dangerously talented offense.
