    Re: Seriously, what do you think Tomlin and Arians

    While the "fire everyone" chant is premature and uncalled for; it's certainly not out of line to question what the @#%$ the offensive coordinator is doing?

    CLE game - 3-12 on 3rd down conversions. Philly - 2-13 3rd conversions. Attrocious! Haven't scored a TD in 6 quarters. They brought in a FA (Moore) as a 3rd down specialist with great hands and he doesn't get one pass yesterday. NO answer whatsoever for the rush. No screens, no passes to the flats, quick slants. No adjustments at half time.

    Cleveland is awful and the cowboys hung over 40 points on the Eagles. The schedule only gets tougher and Phily drew out the blueprint for all teams on how to play D against the Steelers.

    It's far from panic time but changes need to be made and if they are not then getting a new OC who plays to the strengths of what he has on the team is in order.

    Wow! Lose one game and we are firing the entire coaching staff and putting the head coach on notice. Thank God you guys can only influence your silly little fantasy football teams and have no control over a real team or organization.

    A little perspective goes a long way.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    You are just in a good mood because your boy Nate caught a couple of passes.

    The o-line coach should be the focus of the problem not the OC.

    Yep. He earned .001% of that $1.4M. Who can't feel good about that

    We have a lot of talent on offense, but we just aren't utilizing it. We aren't adapting, we aren't taking advantage of all our weapons, and we're just plain predictable.

    I'm all for giving the staff a chance, but if Arians doesn't show any improvement this season, then I'll buy his plane ticket out of here myself. The NFL is not a place for projects these days, especially coaches. And if Arians doesn't change his ways by the end of this season, he never will. And I'm not about to see our franchise QB get pummeled against every two-bit defense in the NFL just cause Arians doesn't know how to call a screen pass. So as far as I see it, it's do or die for our OC.

    I disagree. The only adjustment Arians made was keeping a TE and RB in to help block, which put fewer receivers in patterns.

    The OL coach deserves blame, but I put more on the OC.

    ... And that running back has issues with picking up the blitz/blocking... Another poor choice by Arians.

    Any truth to what I've heard that Miller is not a great blocker? That really limits his ability to get on the field against blitzing D's ... which we should expect for the indefinite future.


    We got our "6-PACK" - time to work on a CASE!

    HERE WE GO STEELERS, HERE WE GO!

    As I posted elsewhere, BA continues his penchant for putting square pegs in round holes including; getting rid of FWP's blocking FB, keeping a pass-catching TE in to block, having a speed RB run between the tackles, using a slot receiver to run deep routes, ignoring a pass-catching RB as an outlet option....the list goes on and on.

    BA ruined a young QB's career in Clownsland, he may just do it again here.
