    Anyone watching the Ravens last year know the Ravens didn't have squat until they learned to establish the run...to set up Flacco for success with the running game. This isn't about tooting Rice's horn...this is to talk about the need for a running game...rookie/Rice...or whoever...running game.

    I'm giving haley this year. If its the same as last?, fire his ass.
    I am calm...but fans who are so willing to call a coach a failure for things out of his control after a year in the position just make me shake my head.

    I think this Steelers team was close last year believe it or not. I seen it in spurts...I seen it in the first 8 games. The OL playing like ish, and Ben getting hurt didn't help our cause.

    nobody has called him a failure.

    he certainly has a lot of room for improvement. To say otherwise is absurd.

    This type of play calling makes the rest of us shake our heads:

    1st down: RUTM, no gain
    2nd down: RUTM or bubble screen, loss of three yards
    3rd & long: Ben help!

    Arians had the O moving but they always stalled out in the red zone. I used to curse when they got a 1st and goal at the 5 b/c you just knew it would be a nightmare trying to score a TD. When they got to the 50 I'd start praying for a long ball that would get into the endzone. His last 3 years his RZ TD pct was 48.2%, 48%, 51%. Terrible. F. Hopefully they've got a plan to get that better this year.

    Mark Madden is a one-trick pony...

    It's less about the time and more about the quality of control. It's about imposing your will onto another team and breaking them...forcing them to submit. That is what TOP is supposed to measure...but I agree it is a poor measure of such.

    This O needs to show improvement that I will agree with.
