Well, but the point you're not getting is that he was a good coach in Cleveland. No titles, but they were competitive, and that's why he wasn't fired.

Um, I'm pretty sure I did get your point. (Why are we using italics?) Thus the "okay". Nowhere did I dispute what you said. I was responding to another poster who seemed to imply that coaching in Cleveland or more specifically being fired from Cleveland makes someone a bad football coach. I don't believe that to be true so I offered my thought on the subject.

Didn't mean to offend you or Bill Belichick in the process.

Don't you dare ever speak ill of Bill Belichick in my presence again!!!!

Whatever, dude. You issued a clarification like I wasn't getting your point, which is that coaches come from everywhere, including Cleveland. I did get your point, but walking away from a good Browns team is different from getting fired from a bad Browns team, which is (I believe) the point the other poster was making.

Fair enough. I think a lot of good coaches get fired from bad teams, not just in football, but in all sports. Jim Leyland once said, "I'm a genius when I have good players and a moron when I don't". That's all I was getting at. Again not defending Arians in any way.

Why did they stop throwing to Wallace after the 1st quarter? It was an obvious mismatch that should have been exploited all game. Should have had 15 balls thrown his way!

Because Ben was on the ground the last 3 quarters. We started having the problems when the Colts realized all we were going to/could do was pass. Between the rush on Ben and them knowing we were passing, Ben didn't get much of a chance to look around, let alone down field.

Should have tried moving the pocket(if there ever was one) or run Ben out on a bootleg maybe buy an extra 1/2 second.

a designed bootleg?

hell, teams have been expecting arians to do that for the past 5 years (being that it actually plays to bens strength).

it would never work.

he is actually faking them out by NOT running bootlegs.

and the repeated failed bubble screens? it keeps them guessing everytime he runs it.

one of these days, all 5 years of setting that play up, will pay big dividends and finally result in a touchdown.

then you all will be sorry you ever critisized it!
