I am frustrated by the game yesterday. This game worried me because our offense was suffering since the first Cleveland game.
Why did this game worry me so?
Benís great asset is his huge athletic advantage at his size. We all know that Ben is not a cerebral quarterback in the mantle of Brady or Brees (I think this is why Rodgers is so dangerous, heís both). He scares teams with his ability to evade the rush and throw some unbelievable passes while evading pressure.
Once his ankle got injured, it eliminated his ability to ďbeĒ Ben. Teams didnít have to fear him escaping the pocket and using his greatest asset. This is obvious to most people.
However, Arians and Ben do not think like most people. This is the source of my frustration from yesterday. The Broncos were not scared of Benís abilities yesterday. They knew Ben is not a pocket passer and thatís what he had to become when he hurt his ankle.
The inability to coordinate an effective offense falls squarely and equally on Ben and Arians together. This is their offense. Arians calls the plays and designs the offense around what Ben likes to do.
Ariaroethlisbergans is like Al Davis. They love the long ball. They are seduced by the long ball. The problem is that the modern NFL is like a chess game. You have to be thinking 5 steps ahead while you are calling the current plays. Ariaroethlisbergans has no ability to do this. They think only of getting huge chunks of yards at a time and think only in the instant play how to get this done.
They can make average defenses look great, and when Ben is not injured make good defenses look silly. But they cannot sustain drives when forced to march.
What is the solution? STOP CODDLING ROETHLISBERGER!
This is probably the biggest difference between Brady and Ben. Brady loves to be coached hard. Ben wants what he wants. Thatís why he never liked Whiz. Whiz coached him hard and it made Ben cry. Ben is arrogant and we all know that. Arians is not the guy to get in Benís grill; he gives the man what he wants. Thatís why Ben loves Arians. I never thought I would say this, butÖÖ.
FIRE ARIANS! Do it before Ben loses his prime and becomes so much like Donovan Mcnabb. Do whatever the hell it takes to transform this offensive line and go back to an amazing running game with play action. Do whatever the hell it takes to get an NFL offense back in Pittsburgh.
How many of us would love to have the creativity we see out of Denver, New England, New Orleans, and even Detroit for crying out loud? Stop letting Ariaroethlisbergans dictate this offense Mike Tomlin! Grow a ****ing pair Colbertomlin!
