    I can go along with this. However, I'm not certain if Arians is too "cute" or just dumb as a box of rocks. Thinking he's too "cute" might be giving him too much credit.

    Yikes...........I agree Bruce Arians needs to go..........Did maybe anybody stop to think why this team is so soft on offense this year is due to the Oline not being the dominate group we're accustomed to seeing each season?.....If the Tomlin can fix the Oline through the draft then I think you will see that physical style back but also now we have the passing game to make us a balanced offense...

    As for the defense its a good but not great unit.....I agree with Iron City there isn't players right now that other teams fear really......Harrison is a nice player but he disappeared yesterday as for the rest of the defense...Hopefully Timmons and Woodley are guys that can bring fear into offensive players minds....I think Smith is still a solid young player and can hit...But he sure didn't show up either....Don't even get me started with Troy....He is this spiritual zen master anymore that refuses to lift weights and has turned into a wuss......

    Well ok, perhaps you're right on the cute part...as Steeler fans we aren't used to cute nor do we want to be. We're a physical football team that is supposed to line up and punch you in the mouth but lately all we do punch between the 20's and then get punched in the red zone and well, that's about it...

    Where is our pride let alone our attitude of killin people. We used to be the type of D that for 60 minutes went at it hard no matter what the score was. WTF is up with Keisel laughin it up with Brady yesterday? While the game is goin on, I don't ****ing know you, I am tryin to blast through your OL and eat your ****ing heart out!!! Oh well he got his game check didn't he? And what was up woth Troy laughin it up on the sidelines instead of pulling the secondary off to the side and try and pump them up or something? Oh well he got his game check too.


    If you donít stand behind our troops.....Please feel free to stand in front of them!!!

    Your wrong...he's dumber then a box of rocks, give the rocks some credit. He seriously needs his *** whipped, bags packed and kicked back to Cleveland.

    That's the sad part, if mother ****ing Cleveland doesn't want you .... how much further down the food chain is there to fall? Him coming to us is like a turd thanking a septic tank for providing it a safe place to call home.

    WTF? .....just what I want, Cleveland rejects!

    We used to take all the Detroit castoffs but atleast some of them worked out for us.

    The problem is that everybody on the offense likes the way Bruce is running things and all the stats are up for this team in every major category from years past. I don't think Bruce is going anywhere next year so we might as well get used to it. I do hope that Tomlin steps in and tweaks things atleast because our redzone efficiency overall is not anywhere near where it should be. Like I've said many times, the dude is trying to so hard to be creative that he's out thinking us right into FG's all the time.

    Thats the problem, he's worried about padding not only Ben's stats but his own in a trade out for losses over wins.

    Who Stole Nate Washington's Hands??

    This guy is driving me crazy...everyone on the team talks about how he tears it up at practice all week and then come game day he can't catch a cold! Ben needs a big time reciever...Hines is the man for critical 1st downs and tough over the middle catches..but we need that dynamic reciever who gets separation and makes the big play. Holmes is getting better..but his size and durability are in question.
    Could you imagine this offense if Ben had a T.O, Moss or even a Braylon edwards type reciever?..or how about teaching willie how to catch and using him as a westbrook type player.


    ~~Just a frustrated player watching Roethlisberger playing his best football and Hines and Heath seem like the only ones making plays for him.
