    We should have been in no huddle... and not this slow azzz no huddle but an up tempo no huddle after the third series.
    the OL sucked under Arians, too... and all the other OC's ben's played for...

    The coach was asked if there had been confusion leading to Isaac Redman's opening-drive fumble into the Tennessee end zone that should have staked the Steelers a 9-0 lead, and Tomlin replied: “There was. We had a miscommunication in terms of the personnel group.”

    Setting aside that the fumble resulted from a high handoff by Ben Roethlisberger, how does that happen?

    Well, since Tomlin called it a “miscommunication,” and it didn't occur on the field, that's the coordinator's job.
    .....

    Asked why the running game wasn't there after Maurkice Pouncey's injury — a whole 28 yards on 14 carries by the backs — the coach's answer was crushing in its candor: “We didn't execute. They did. They had a nice plan. Our plan could have been better under the circumstances. Obviously, we had intended on using Kelvin Beachum some at tight end. When he had to go to center, that changed. We didn't adjust well enough. I take responsibility for that.”

    Fine, but responsibility for the “plan” that Tomlin cites is that of the coordinator.
    I think that the writer has a very odd definition of "ripping". For one thing, if you have to explain how to read into what was said, and then calling it "crushing", then it really isn't a rip. At best it is vague innuendo.



    Blame Tomlin for not having his team ready and for sitting Jarvis Jones on the series after he went all Jadeveon Clowney on Chris Johnson.
    Just out of curiosity, why is it that the OC takes all of the blame for offensive personnel, but Tomlin gets the blame for defensive personnel. Does Haley have more latitude with his unit than Lebeau?

    Seems to be a common trend, doesn't it? What's the one "constant" in that equation?

    Hints: It's not the OC (there has been 3)..... It's not the o-line coach (there has been 3)..... It's not the o-line personnsel (there has been many).

    DING DING DING......We have a winner!

    The one constant is Big Ben.

    Let me add some constants that have a little more impact on the quality of OLine we have seen. Not the HC ... there have been two. However Colbert and the scouting department are two "constants" that probably had a little more to do with the quality of OLine than Ben. It's not like Ben is sitting in the draft room telling them which linemen to scout/draft.
