We also beat the Jets who put up a helluva a lot of points the week before we faced them - and everyone thought they were going to be a force

This team is just as good as the Colts with our backup. I understand where you are coming from - but a healthy Steelers team is head and shoulders over the Colts IMO. The team that beat the Giants (without Troy, DeCastro, Mendy) is a team that is capable of winning the SB, and on the road too. We need our ammo refilled, renewed, and restocked - if that happens - we beat anyone.
[B] How can you possibly use a win over the Chiefs ( 1-9) as anything more than a cupcake win?

The Steelers are better than the Colts, thats what makes the Colts season impressive. They were not expected to win 3 games!

Just because i love the Steelers, i don't get blinded by homerism.

I don't really give Arians that much credit for Indy's success either, the Colts are simply playing inspired football in honor of Chuck Pagano.

that, and a lot of LUCK...

then a few weeks ago, he felt the need to point out that mike pouncey is better than his twin markice.

and now this.

point is, arians has much bigger things he should be worrying about now, rather than the steelers. everytime he takes one of these shots at the team that put his ass on the map, it shows a lack of maturity and professionalism.

this isnt the first year he constantly ran his big fat mouth to the media, and the aforementioned reasons are probably a big part he has never received an job offer as a HC in the NFL before (despite him being along for the ride for five seasons, 2 SB appearances, and 1 win.

BA had much to be thankful for yesterday.
A stud rookie QB who plays like a veteran.
The emotional drive of a team playing for a cancer stricken coach.
At this level of play, that added mental incentive pushes the body to greater limits.
He should keep his mouth shut; the Colts' success has little to do with him.

OK.

So then by that logic, we don't need Haley either.


Right?

Right?
and by your logic, arians is the next bill walsh?

why wouldnt we need haley? he is actually competent, and lets face it, arians entire offesnive philosophy is flawed.

please show me where his play calling and actual gameplans have benefitted a team in the past, for an entire season.

arians hem hawed about wanting out because he couldnt stand the heat, and like mike martz he thought his "mad scientist brrains" were beigger than the team.

good riddance.

a few people cant understand the "arians hate" which is really no more than a respect of sound business decions, and a desire to not settle for mediocrity on offense and protect the teams best interests going forwatd. i get that.

a TON of people dont get the arians love. can someone explain that to me???

There aren't many Offensive Coordinators who have the opportunity to be mentored by three fantastic young QBs. He's one lucky dullard.
