    We wanted Marty ball so bad we neglected the most important part of what makes Marty ball realistic. The offensive line. Instead we drafted a couple wr's in the first round, a spread offense running back in the first round, a pass catching TE and etc etc. granted we haven't been in position to draft a stud LT. But the last few years we've had a rotating group of undrafted guys on the o-line. Arians is a good x's and o's coach. But he's terrible at utilizing the players he has.

    You still don't get it, ART II WANTS MARTY BALL!
    The only stat that matters from 2009 was 9-7 (missed playoffs after winning a Super Bowl the previous season).

    No...that was Art II's dad, Irish Ambassador Dan (even though this was the 2004 draft and Art II officially replaced his father as team president as of 2003...Dan has been a chairman since then).

    Gonna be sad for Art II when Ben wins a ring with Arians in Arizona.
    very damaging stat...

    I remember when our D used to win games.

    They give Dickey all the resources that he need and he still screw up. 77 years of age. Coaching should end somewhere in the60's.

    I'm sick of 10 yard cushions, moreso when we're in a prevent in the 4th. We always perform better when we play tighter on the wideouts. No doubt, the defense underachieved, but a large part of that was the soft scheme in the secondary.

    The DBs HAVE been playing tighter coverage on the receivers this year.

    The Steelers still have the worst 2 minute/4th Q defense of the past 10 years.

    We all KNEW that the Bucs were gonna score to take the lead.
