Arians needs fired, today. I know philly was all over us, but it was the same play calling start to finish. When Ben did have time two or three players were all in the same area.
Where were all the screens today? I hate this friggein guy. Our offense is so predictable. Does Ben have 400 yards passing for the season yet?

Where was the "no huddle" offense. Everybody knows the way to slow down a relentless pass rush is to use the no huddle. That doesn't allow them to pin their ears back and it wears them out. We've yet to see that this year.

Fire Arians please.......I'm also starting to think the hiring of Mike Tomlin was a mistake......I hope to God that Keven Colbert isn't back next year either....He needs to be accountable for his poor drafting.....The first round picks have been good......But look at how many picks over all have sucked....Besides Woodley and McFadden who were 2nd rounders there hasn't been many non first round picks to make an impact the last few years....Which has zapped this team of talent along the OL/DL and depth overall....Spaeth and William Gay have some potential to but overall its times for Colbert to be held accountable....

It reminds me of what he said earlier last season......3TE set.

Ya right, I'm still waiting to see these TE sets. Heath Miller is never being used to his full abilities. He got everything in a player to be the next great thing.

We need to use more Heath Miller.

I AGREE! Why is it that Heath Miller starts getting the ball when Big Ben leaves the game... Its not Arian's fault that the O line sucks... but he needs to start running screens or draws. I thought Parker was a RB that we could use in the screen game... ALA Westy... but I haven't seen a screen all year.

If you want to go "old school" and not invent anything new then use your TE... thats why you drafted him.

Until this team gets some quality coaching on the OL and also finds some kind of combination that works we're going to struggle. It's been our problem child for the least 2 years in a row and now it's apparent nothing has changed yet.

You can blame the play calling for not having more short passes, not using the no huddle more if you want..you'll get no argument from me there but you also have to remember that a poor OL is going to be exposed sooner or later, that's one position you just can't hide.

Did the Eagles expose a weakness? Yes. Will we rebound? Hell Yeah. Live and Learn move on. We were not going to run the table anyway. On the plus side this loss was not a division or conference loss. Sleep it off and focus on the Ratbirds.

I definitely think after that performance today that Bruce Arians is more on the hot seat then he was let's say last year this time. The line was bad no doubt about it, but Arians playcalling was just horrible at times and gave the Steelers literally no time to do anything with the ball at all. Unacceptable performance today all the way around.

Its more about the shiatty play calling in the first three games, than it is about one loss. Whats ben have about a total of 400 yards in 3 games. And as far as the one loss is concerned, what adjustments did he make from the first half to the second half? Ben was sacked 6 times in the second quarter, isn`t the OC job to change things up? not just come out with the same old game plan. Face it our game plan sucked, and it sucked last week, the first week the texans sucked thats why it worked. We have all kinds of weapon, but we don`t use them. Arians sucks, and if you don`t agree thats fine your allowed your opinion, but you aren`t watching the same game I am.

AGREED !!! B.A does bear some blame for lack of imagination in playcalling. It ain't the end of the season just yet. A team is never as bad as it's worst game and I believe we just got that one out of our system, and we were luckily still in the game for the most part !!

TG, your right, but when you know things are bad, and they couldn`t have gotten worse than the second quarter, then you have to adjust at halftime. He didn`t. I was amongst 70+ Steelers fans, everyone was yelling, no huddle, quick slants, and for a hot receiver, Arians had to see the same thing we did.

not bailing on the team, just the play calling. problem for me is the play calling will not change unless the coach does. I`ll live and die with the Steelers, but we have a lot of $$$$ invested in our QB, now two stud running backs, a couple damn good receivers, and a great under used TE, we need more out of our O. The defense will die on the field if they have to play all day like they did yesterday.

I wondered why we didnt bring in Speath and go with some Twin Tight end sets. Im no coach, but if the line backers are blitzing, there should be something open underneath the safeties. With a tight end on each end, it would have kept there outside linebackers a little more honest.

I hope to be guaranteeing the division, but it won`t happen calling the same game plan. We used three TE`s against the browns shiatty blitz but not against the eagles????? Once again since you weren`t paying attention, no problems with the entire staff or team, just the play caller.

I did notice Tomlin having a talk with Arians near the end,and it did not look like a come to my house for dinner consersation either.More like a stop by my office on Monday morning kind of talk. Course i can't confirm that.(lol) I did not notice any adjustments made after the half,and i surely felt they would have. In games like that there has got to be adjustments made.I did notice on our first posssession we had three tight ends in the game.I'm almost sure of that.Anyway we moved the ball some,but did not score.But Ben was not badgered near as much with that formation.Noone really wants to mention it but i think Ben needs to work on a quicker release.I saw him move up into trouble instead of away from it several times,not even rolling out like he normally would.If the play you called in a game like that was not there,throw it Away!!!!Its better than a sack.You noticed how quick Leftwich's release was,and i am not a big fan of Byron either.Almost three seconds the ball was gone.Ben really looked like a chicken with his head cut off out there.He was rattled big time.I believe we could have won that game with a little more brilliant play calling.I think our defense put the game with-in our reach,the offense must take the heat for this loss,whether it be the coaches or the players.That is my view on the game. Just my opinion. As far as bailing on my team.......yea right!!!!!!!!! Ain''t gonna happen ever!!!!!!! They have more evidence now than they ever did that something needs to be changed. Whether it is position coaches,or personel,they have to figure it out. I know they will!!!!!!!I have faith my Steel brothers and sista's!!!!!!!!!It's only one loss ya know.

I agree with you K the Steelers will bounce back and rebound and beat the Ravens here at home next Monday night. People cannot go crazy over one effing loss. There are still 13 games left in the season and the Steelers despite the bad performance yesterday they're are still in great shape in the AFC North at 2-1 and in the AFC conference overall with all the top teams struggling like the Pats,Colts,Jags,and Chargers. I wont start panicking unless they come back next week against the Ravens at home and lose which I guarantee will not happen take it to the bank.

:plus1: Hire a new o-line coach and you will see an improvement with the lie and the offense.
Put any OC on our sidelines (past or present) and he would not of made a difference in the outcome of the game.
The strength of the offense starts with the guys up front and they are taught technigue and blocking strategy from the o-line coach, not Arians, period.
Arians can call any formation that gives Ben max protection and if the lineman don't have a clue on who to pick up, play wont work.

Even though the line sucks and needs overhauled; I still see a need for a better OC. Fire Arians and get someone in that will do the job right, if you can find someone. Otherwise we're stuck with him for now. Never once did Arians call plays that would combat the pressure being thrown at Big Ben. When a team throws 8 or 9 men into the blitz then you short pass to punish them. This was almost never done. It was like Arians thought he could get a deep pass off. But 5 men can't hold 8. The Receivers and Tight Ends and Backs should have been used where needed to pick up blocks while a short pass to one guy for 5+ yards could have driven us all the way down the field and forced the Eagles to respect the line.

Exactly! I started this thread to get everyones opinion, its not a legitimate petition, no matter what the majority consensus is. The title has to controversial so that attracts peoples attention, it worked.

Fact is Arians has shown no good traits thus far, he has what he has, and he has to make it work, when it doesn`t work, its his job to adjust on the fly, like NOW. He did no adjustments.

All he's saying is that freaking out over one loss is a bit overboard. Hell I think that a change up in playcalling now and then would be great, but in all honesty when your getting beat, your getting beat and cant do anything anyway. Our offense got dominated and had a bad game, I was pissed no doubt, but we'll bounce back. You just make an *** out of yourself by trying to compare your so called "football" knowledge when all your doing when you say **** like "I forgot more than you have yet to learn and learned to forget more than you care about" just makes you sound like the community douchebag.

No kidding! I have only said it that way because everyone, most everyone, thinks that firing the guy will do good! I don't think so! Like I have said in other posts, we lost one game and here comes ALL the NEGATIVE crap that they think the Steelers should do or don't do!! Everyone is entitled to a bad game here or there, I mean look at the Pats, they have 16 great games plus the playoffs! One Bad Game cost them a ring! The bad game doesn't mean anything it's only the timing of that "BAD GAME"!

We've been hearing criticism of Arians pretty consistently since the team trailed off last year. I think a lot of it has been pretty valid. On the positive side though - he has developed a great rapport with Ben and they did put up great numbers last year. Solid ground game, records in passing TDs and QB rating. Our issues at the end of the year last year were with the D holding on to leads - not so much the offense. Being the franchise QB - Ben's opionion / comfort will have a lot of influence on any action the team takes with the staff.

It wasn`t until the 4th Q that Ben and Tolin took the game over, that our O really moved and came alive. Arians plays still suck.

No more Chinese Fire Drill motion sets ... no more spread offense empty backfield on 3-and-1 ... fire Arians!

Bring back the Steelers' trap and the screen pass (what the hell happened to this play??).

I kind of feel the same way about Arians as I did about Mike Mularkey. I just think that our team needs to be a more smashmouth football team again. I am the kind of person that likes that smash football when the opposition knows your gonna run the ball and they still cant stop ya. And then when you do get the ball back.. our defense is gonna eat your a$$ alive and send ya back to wher you belong... The Bench!!

I love smashmouth football too, but you gotta remember, Willie is no Jerome. :nono:

Just for the record, I'm on the side that wants to see BA given a pink slip! Along with Zierlein! IMO they both need to go. Not saying that they necessarily should be shown the door right now so that a new OC has to come in and try to fix things mid-season, but hopefully some coaching changes will be made this coming off-season. :2cents:

I have a feeling that the Jacksonville game this week is just going to confirm this for me. They've always played us tough in Jacksonville and with the way our offense is struggling I don't see that changing much this week. Of course I hope I'm dead wrong!! :cope:

I think Arians and Tomlin are trying to win these games without giving up too much of our playbook. I am sure we will see some new formations and new plays as the season progresses. We have alot of tough opponents coming up after the break.
The problem I see, is that the receivers are not recognizing the blitz and making the proper route adjustments.

If the offense was handled right we wouldn't have the offensive line that we've had for the last 3 years. Our 5 guys up front are a total joke and none of them is worth the money they are being paid right now. Hartwig is still finding his way in this offense, Kemo is too. Marvel is our best lineman right now and Colon is out of place. It is what it is and we are getting what we deserve for ignoring the offensive line in the draft for the last several years.

It's not Arians that is the total problem here; it's everyone including Ben, the WR's, and the RB's. Until everyone is healthy and on the same page and doing their job our offense will continue to be spotty.

Still want Arians gone! Our goal line play calling for the second week in a row, is horrible. My brother, Physchoward, kept yelling, during timeouts, for Ben to stay away from bruce. And we kept wanting his headset to be yanked off his head.

Sorry people! I still want him gone! I would have went no huddle way earlier, especially against this blitz. And I would have had a receiver in on 4th and Goal, to stretch the defense! And I wanted more screens today, did we have any?
