    Agree with that wisdom, fezz. Also can't fix what I can't control, so I have only my own response to manage.

    Does anyone have any opinion on why, they wouldn't consider a new OC ?

    I know Ben is one answer but I thought maybe because, Tomlin is too stupid to understand what an offense should perform like especially, with the talent that we have or that Tomlin is just a coward and affraid to get rid of Arians.
    There's a Bruce Arians Sucks thread on Facebook that, I might vent about. Maybe Brucey boy will read my words because, I'd love to tell him off had I ever given the chance.
    Not only do you guys have to endure my hate for Arians, put on your asbestos shorts because Tomlin is now headed into the fire of my rants.
    Tomlin is a joke of a head coach. That's one rant.

    Also, I love Tomlin, but I seriously gotta question his judgement in keeping BA around IF it's his call. Is it really up to Tomlin though?? Or is this the front office?

    Cowher didn't seem to have any problems getting rid of coaches. I could be wrong but, I thought he couldn't boot Shermans out quick enough and then there was Erhardt. Cowher made no bones about it that, Erhardt was in Cowhers doghouse for not having a more productive or point scoring offense.

    This defense was a top 10 before Lebeau and will be long after. Because this team put their money and drafts on defense. So keep thinking it's Lebeau BUT it's not.
    Bad strategy on defense cost us three games 49ers, 2nd Ravens game and Broncos.
    On Tunlch show they both agree that this offense is a failure because our 100mill dollar Qb refuse to go short and said that the Colts run the same offense and the only difference is that their Qb know how to get the ball out of his hands.

    So in short Ben maybe the biggest problem. And once he adjust his game the Of will take off.

    Another question? Why was Lebeau a failure with the Bengals on defense, when he coached there.
    I know the answer... Because the Bengals priority wasn't defense like the
    Steelers is and he is not as great as some make him out to be.

    Re: Arians, LeBeau wll Return Next Season

    A couple of things-

    Ben is certainly partially responsible for the Offensive failures. Too much reliance on the 'big play' & not enough use of the safe plays. Maybe Antonio Brown might help that situation if Ben starts to use him more often. But the last couple of years, it seems Ben's top priority is to let Wallace go deep & then throw it somewhere around where Wallace is headed- looks great when it comes off, but doesn't lead to a consistant gameplan.

    That said, good OL play will make the whole offense look that much better. The weapons are in place- now they just need the time to be used.

    If Manny Sanders can stay fit- Chadman predicts something of a break-out season for him as the #3 WR next season.

    Lastly- one potential reason LeBeau & Arians are sticking around- there will be some rather significant upheavel on the roster due to salary & aging players. Some level of consistancy for the team could be a big benefit. At least this way, young players being asked to step up are not being asked to try and raise their level of play to starter material as well as learn a new playbook at the same time.
