Do you mean never Arians fault in the sense that we have an entire thread dedicated (and stickied) to firing Arians?

Where do you get this notion that people here don't blame the offense?

there is no scapegoat today. Ben sucked, Mendy sucked, D line sucked bad. Oline sucked bad except for maybe 2 drives and even Troy and Woodley were just a step to slow a couple of times. Tomlin and BA sucked. I am starting to think of Tomlin as Herm Edwards. Just a motivator. Lets face it he inherited most of his players. Deer in the headlights many times this season. Redman was the bright spot. He ran behind the same line as the excuse maker Mendy and ran north to south without stutter stepping. Did Hines Ward play in this game.? I still think things can turn around, only because I have been a Steelers fan for 40 years and they usually do. But we need to make a trade or do something about the line. I have no problem getting rid of BA but hardly think it will help right now.

Ehhh not to sure about Ben sucking, its kinda hard to suck when your running for your life. I agree that Mendenhall sucked it up today, and Ive been holding out hope that he will turn it around, I think he is a talented back but he just needs to get to playing some smashmouth football.

After all, at the end of the day the "D" held the Texans to zero points in the 2nd half, it is what it is. Now it is time to realize, the Offense can't execute, I totally blame that on the OC, he is ultimately responsible for the Offense, he please keep in mind, is also responsible for the personnel that are designated to play!!!!
Actually, Arians ripped off that long TD run in the 4th quarter, so they didn't give up zero points in the second half. What they did have, was zero sacks and zero turnovers the entire game. Not a good look at all. This whole team stinks right now.

It for damn sure can't hurt. I mean what's the worse that could happen, the offense struggles to score and looks embarrassingly amateurish?

Not sure if it is just me but did it seem like the Steelers were pulling there guards a lot more when they ran the ball in the 2nd half? I thought they had something going there for sure when they were pulling the guards, they almost broke a couple big runs off for a td in one drive, to bad almost dosent count.
They were all just emulating their head coach. ZERO emotion.

The sole reason for today's loss is on the offense. The Steelers do not have a modern day 2011 offense. They have a pop gun offense that operates in fits and spurts. The defense is finally bankrupt and are incapable of cashing the bouncing cheques from the O. It is time that the O lead this team for a change.

the numbers don't lie...Ben has been able to deflect the truth for sometime now with his size and ability to run and extend plays but the bottom line is he, Ben, gets sacked way to much. Why? Answer, O'Line. You can't pass or run without a decent O line. Yes, if you have a QB who is 6'4'' and 2something he'll buy you sometime but eventually the truth will catch up to you. If you can't put points on the board you can't always depend on the defense. Speaking of, they didn't look that great either.
