At least with the Steelers out of contention early this puts Bruce Arians out there and available for all those head coaching opportunities. So please now start praying for someone to call BA and "steal" him from us. Keep praying Steeler fans!

ON TO NEXT SEASON! Go Texans or anyone else who can eliminate Baltimore and New England!

Then get rid of them both, AZ would love to have Ben and Bruce would make a great boat anchor!

I know I'm really pissed and don't mean it about Ben but the offense has been terrible the last 3 seasons!

It may not have been completly his fault tonight, but every ****ing important game this year, the team came in unprepared offensively. Every defense cordinator out-witted BA this year. 12 - 4, what the **** ever. Some games were wone in spite of BA's incompitance, not because he devised a great game plan or made second half adjustments. Today seemed no different.

I think I broke it down in a thread a couple weeks ago. BA struggles against quality teams. Proof is in the stats.

He needs to go. Tomlin needs to man up and not worry about his QB's feelings.

I know this is obsolete by now, but it puzzles me that BA does not use Miller more. Every single time Miller was asked to do something in this game he did it perfect. Same thing with the Patriots game. We come out throwing it to him and it just works. Then we stop doing it and we don't return to it. I know that some claim that he is no Gronkowski or Davis and that is true. You could, however, also make the argument that he does not get the chance to be either of them as long as BA , and partially Ben I suppose, refuse to throw him the ball.

As much as I want Arians gone, I can't blame Arians if Ben doesn't want to use his TE
in the redzone.

Ben refuses to make Miller a feature part of the redzone. That's not on Arians per say. All the high scoring/red zone proficient teams use their TE's.

Proof of BA stupidity.
Exhibit A: QB with sprained ankle.
Exhibit B: Starting Center out.
Exhibit C: Starting RB out.
Exhibit D: Starting guard out etc.. etc.. etc.. with injuries.
Exhibit E: BA calls empty set deep pass plays that require extended protection with fewer protectors.
I rest my case. BA has no brain.

As Einstein put it. "Insanity is defined as doing the same thing over and over expecting a different outcome".

A question that will always be asked until it's resolved. Heath never does anything wrong, and for some reason we always shy away from him more and more as the game goes on. First quarter, we use him a significant amount. Second quarter, we use him sometimes. Second half, he's completely absent from the game plan. Another thing that's going on in BA's little pea brain that none of us will ever understand.

Further proof. Empty set this year has resulted in bubble screens of 3 yards or less or a sack of 11 yards or more approximately 70% of the time. Overall the empty set results in a success, which is defined as a play resulting in 4 or more yards less then 10% of the time. Yet this is one of the most often called formations in the playbook.

Conversely, play action has a success rate of well over 50% yet is rarely called. Play calling is in fact entirely under the control of the OC ergo BA. Again he is either insane or a Ravens fan. It can be explained no other way.

I have not been a critic of BA but I have kept my thoughts to myself for awhile. After tonight, I think he has to go. I have sat through enough nail biters with inferior teams even before Ben was gimping around.

This was a game that you can't put on Bruce Arians. It wasn't Bruce that dropped the 50 yd catch down the middle, it was Mike Wallace. It wasn't Bruce that dropped a key 3rd down pass, it was Jerricho Cotchery. The Steelers receivers dropped some balls today, 3 in the first half alone. The offensive gameplan wasn't all that bad, although I will admit that 2nd quarter was horrific in the sense that they got away from Heath and the quick passes. Once they got back to it late in the 3rd and 4th it was fine but the players didn't execute.

BA calls the plays. No play action with a back averaging 7.1 yards per carry is criminal at best! Yes BA is at fault. A short passing game is not part of his mentality. That's why they struggle in the red zone and why they scored but 6 points in the first quarter. Championships are won by scoring touch downs not kicking field goals!

The play would work quite nicely if you only run it once in a while. Once every other possesion, after a failed 50+ yard bomb to Wallace, on 3rd and short, 3rd and long, on your own goaline.. well, then it's not as effective.

100% agree. Ever notice when they show seasonal offensive stats on TV its always total yards and total offense.....and they never show scoring rank? BA looks ok when they show the former, but when it comes to scoring he sucks. Steelers ranked 21 out of 32 teams. Red Zone conversion? Fagetaboudit.

As of right now, if they don't fire Arians, they've fired me! I am tired of watching a talent laden team struggle because of play calling!

I admit, my attitude is softening a bit as the sting goes away, but we all know it and that ******* has kept his job because the talent kept hiding his ineptitude but last night was the straw that broke my back!

And maybe Lebeau too! We have lost our tenacity on D and we looked foolish last night on D!

anyone notice simms and nantz talking about arians and how great of an OC he is and dumbfounded that he isn't a head coaching candidate anywhere? i laughed my butt off when they were talking about that.

arians wasn't the entire blame for the game but come on. it's 5 years into his "reign" and his offense is the same every freaking season. i'd rather watch an autopsy then his offense. it produces yards but not points...it's predictable...it goes against what's working and continues what isn't...we've been saying these things for 5 years...

he has weapons that can produce 20 points a game? against some of the shittier defenses in the league. we aren't going to get any better offensively under this jagoff. it's time for him to go!

most of this thread is about arians has a whole, not just the last game. if you actually like watching his offense operate, than damn, you're easily impressed. but his offense is a skid mark on the underpants of the nfl. if you can't see that...oh well!

"Could have" being the operative phrase. We need to score from outside the 20 to get a touchdown so BA doesn't go into redzone offense mode.

I feel like scoring outside the 20 requires a WR like Burress, Moss, or Johnson (Calvin or Andre). You lob it up and they'll probably make a fool out of the defender. Otherwise, scoring outside the 20 is more of the opposing defense either missing a tackle or leaving a guy wide open, which is rare.

Do you remember that 15-20 yard pass to the sideline to Wallace last night? They threw it three times before it finally worked. I feel that was intended to be a deep scoring play, but the WR always had a defender stuck on him like glue, so even when he made the catch, he was tackles almost instantly.

Which is again why I said I don't understand why Ben kept trying to force it to Wallace. There were a few different defenders covering Wallace last night and they all had blanket coverage, but for some reason Ben was trying to fit it in those tight areas that he hasn't hit since the ankle injury.

The attempted TD pass to Wallace in double coverage that was almost picked comes to mind, and Miller was wide open on that play and Brown was breaking free from his defender. Part of the reason that Ben going to Wallace is not working anymore is because he sells it so quickly. Watching the game I would tell the plays that he was looking for Wallace for and the plays where we was looking for someone else. I'd assume it's just as easy for the defenders to tell.

I think he forced it because he was told to force it. I don't think he made the decision to go to Wallace three times on that play unless that was the play given to him, and the whole point of the play is to go to Wallace. The other receivers on that route are probably running distraction routes, but going to them is either pointless or dangerous.

We actually had a few decent outings this season, Patriots game we out coached them, exposed them and controlled the game beautifully . . .

. . . Seahawks we had a balanced attack, Mendy and Red double punch and a smattering of Ben.

. . . . Titans, the air assault 5 td's from the arm of Ben . . .

. . . . 3 quite different ways of winning with offense . . .

the Seahawks game , came on the back of the shocker on opening day, the Patriots game, well we knew we had to do something different to beat them - looks like these games were planned well . .

The vast majority of all the other games stunk of, let's just see how we get on. the Titans game was probably the worst thing that could have happened, as Arians obviously thought this air game was the way forward, totally shunning the run game at times, even against Denver it was his want to shun it, even though it was working!!!

Time for a change. I GUARANTEE we won't win the SB again with BA as co-ordinator, so we might as well move on.

I am pretty sure that he has pictures of Roethlisberger and Tomlin having adult relations with one another. It's the only reason why he could still be around as OC. The guy can put together a great game plan, but he is so inconsistent and once the Steelers get down, he starts shooting for the 14 point pass plays.

While the roster is likely to change, Tomlin was asked if he expects both of his coordinators – Dick LeBeau and Bruce Arians – to be back next season.

“I anticipate it, but of course we all understand what the end of the season is about and movement is a part of it in today’s NFL for players and coaches,” said Tomlin. “We are going to try to maintain continuity like we always do. We believe that is a benefit to us, but we also understand that things can happen, and we will deal with those as they arrive.”

If I could get anyone to recommend some I would appreciate it! Thanks. And if you inbox me it would be even better haha

Why haven't more teams contacted Bruce Arians for possible head coaching position? Do they know something that Tomlin doesn't?

BA is the NFL's best kept secret.

Phil Simms wondered why during Sunday's broadcast.

Phil Simms is not the sharpest tool in the shed. He is a tool, though.

He needs to go somewhere where the HC calls the plays to shine. His plays are well designed and very good, he just can't call plays during the game. For example, first 15 plays are scripted going into the game and we scored td's like 12 of the 16 games on our opening drive.

I'm convinced that Arians has naked, gay pictures of someone in management. That is the only way he could possibly still be employed by the Steelers.

Why didnt Jacksonville take Arians?????? Atlanta only scored 2 points in the playoffs.

The Atlanta Falcons have requested permission to speak to Green Bay Packers quarterbacks coach Tom Clements and former Jacksonville Jaguars offensive coordinator Dirk Koetter about their vacant offensive coordinator position, league sources said Saturday.

The Falcons are conducting the search after former offensive coordinator Mike Mularkey was hired as the Jaguars' coach earlier this week.

Koetter has served as the Jaguars'offensive coordinator since 2007. Clements has been in his position with the Packers since 2006.

In addition to Koetter and Clements, the Falcons have interest in former Baltimore Ravens coach Brian Billick and former New York Jets offensive coordinator Brian Schottenheimer.

There is a reason no one is seeking permission to speak to BA (if he's under contract). Red zone deficiencies is the most glaring as we all know. Gotta score points in this league. Secondly, there are more capable people out there, plain and simple. I noticed the Steeler Addicts advertising banner for Jennifers Candles. Does she make one that smells like coffee that we can give to the front office. Because the Bruce Arians version is a perfumed elegance of cat urine and college dorm puke fest.

This is why arians satys on the team. THE MEDIA..

COACHING B+
Despite all the injuries to key players, the Steelers won 12 games for the second year in a row and third time in four years. Mike Tomlin's ability to marshall his team through tough times is unparalleled, but he also showed he would not hesitate to make changes (see: Hines Ward). Still, the offense never performed to expectation and the defense repeatedly had problems getting off the field. The failure to stop the Ravens on a 92-yard drive late in the second meeting ultimately proved to be their undoing. It cost them a division title and first-round bye, not to mention an opportunity to rest their injured players in the stretch.


Does Arians have a relative at the Gazette??
