Default Did someone switch out Ariens Playbook???

The game against the Titants was not the Steelers typical offence. Quick passes to the open man. Running to setup the pass. Screen plays to keep the D honest (still needs work but they tried them). Only one long ball down the field at the right time after quick hitters all day. Attacking a teams weakness.

Either Ariens misplaced his playbook or someone gave him and Ben a stern talking to and told them to run an NFL style offence.

The Steelers looked good except for that "lets get cute" at the end of the half pick that Ben threw.

If Ben and Ariens put togeather game plans like this all the time this team could be scary good. Ben would have 30 plus TD's every season.

Good game Steelers now lets not get cute and let it go to your heads. Keep it up and build off of it.

i think someone switched out arians brain with one that actually functions.

with bens ijury, it was prudent the gameplan be devised to get it out of his hands quickly. i just figured arians would bee too stubborn to do it.

he admitted last week having about 5 deep bombs to wallace inserted in every gameplan and he hates to not dial them up (hence the garbage time TD to mike to rub the titans noses in it).

arians was also forced to utilize hines and heath more. good things (like moving the chains and scoring td''s) usually happen when they are involved.

It all started with Ben not holding the ball every other play for 8 secs. He held on to the ball too long MAYBE 3 times in this game, the rest of the time, he was 5 step and 3 step and pass right away. I know Ben has great improv skills, but from a health and longevity standpoint, he has to do what he did today.

I've never said this before, but Ariens called a good game today- now just remember what works Bruce and don't get back to being yourself anytime soon.

Today's game is the way it should be played... the best game plan so far this year.

I'm usually pretty hard on Arians, but today he called an excellent game.

The only question is can Arians stick to a shorter passing game and stay committed to the run game to open up the deep pass? We'll see ,but for now.... good job, Bruce!

eh... maybe not.

i was beginning to think arians may not be so big of an idiot, but once again, he opened his mouth and removed all doubt.

after the game he told reporters he would never tell ben to get rid of the ball quicker.

really bruce? really?

this is why he was NEVER considered for any position higher than the one (and only one) he currently has. piss poor management from a piss poor manager.

Ben- hey coach, im really beat up and the line is in shambles, but id really like to get in those 5 deep balls you dial up to wallace every game, but i kinda want to take a break from the sacks this weekend and let max get settled in.

Coach Arians- just do your thing ben.

Ben- hey coach, i know i have this lawsuit hanging over me, but i really wanna go out and **** some drunk coeds at the bar tonight.

Coach arians- just keep doin, what you been doin, ben.

Ben- hey coach, hines and heath really look kinda pissed off they been black balled from the gameplan the last 4 weeks. what do you think.

Coach Arians- do your thing ben. just be sure to get my boy wallace his td or 2. he's gonna be my lasting legacy as a receivers coach. people are starting to figure out i really did absolutely nothing for peyton manning as his position coach, other than let him do his thing.



what a dolt.

i'll give bruce some props as well. the plays in the book that were ran today were pretty good plays although i woulda liked to see more "banana bunch" (phils simms loves it)/bubble screens .

maybe he has checked out and mike tomlin is now gameplanning and telling ben what to do.

i loved the aggressiveness of the late pass to wallace and the failed fake spike. he should probably practice that a few times during the week before they actually run it though.

situational football.
