    85% wrong is a conservative estimate!!!

    If you're not part of the solution, you're part of the problem

    BA is the problem when the steelers lose but not when they win haha.

    if you think BA is most or even half of the problem what does that say about tomlin, the FO, and the organization in general? i think if BA was really as in ept as most think he wouldnt of lasted a full season with the steelers. i trust tomlin, colbert's and the rooneys opinions on knowledgable coaches. i think they know what they are doing. oh wait they probably just keep BA because ben likes him haha that makes a whole lot of sense

    His suckiness is overrated IMO, on this board. Same with LeBeau.

    I think we are pretty in tune with what we see. Just because we are not players or coaches doesn't mean we don't understand what is happening.
    Are fans just morons that have no clue to what they have been playing since childhood, wacthing with passion since childhood ?

    I'm not one of them but, there are a lot of smart football posters on this site and others that do have an excellent knowledge of the game.

    I've said it from the start, " I like Tomlin, he came in and complemented an excellent football team with his leadership but, the dude must not have a clue about offense or else he would have fired BA a while back. "
    Same with Ben, Ben has a buddy in Arians that started out as an assitant coach to Ben so, they most likely had a friendship before BA was the OC.

    Look up BA's track record with us and other teams that he coached.....it reads like a demon resume. The guy only does as well as he does due to the talent on the offense, a great defense.
    We've won despite of Arians.

    The guy could quit, get fired, retire today and he wouldn't get another OC offer and for sure not a head coaches job.

    Only once in my life did another teams assistant coach come to my attention because he was so stupid and that coach was BA when he was Clevelands OC.

    Couldn't agree more. Very well said!

    IMO, Arians is an average OC. He isn't a stinker, but he isn't great. We could certainly find improvement by replacing him.
