    Overall thoughts on the offense; play calling

    Bruce Arians and the Steelers offense treated us to a clinic today right up until the 4th quarter when the starters began coming out of the game. Ben, well you can't have much better stats than what he did today. Only misfiring on 1 pass and really just taking pretty much whatever he wanted from the defense. He had time to throw and spread the ball around all day. He was accurate and just really made it look easy.

    Parker was a stud today and bettered his TD production from all of last season already this year. He ran hard, tough, and found the holes nicely once he got going.

    I liked seeing Mendenhall get action today, that built his confidence and he made some good hard runs.

    Hines, well he's just the man as always, his blocking was key all day long as was his 2 TD's where he just completely faked out the secondary and got open.

    I like the play calling overall today and was impressed with the offense being able to move the ball and not only play smash mouth but also to be versatile. The series right before half time was alittle irritating but other other an that I have no complaints from Arians & Tomlin there.

    You can't complain when the offense scores 38 and dominated like they did today....

    and the best part was that it wasn't just 1 or 2 players making everything happen; Heath was involved early, Mendenhall made some good runs, Spaeth caught a pass, Holmes made an impact, Parker was crazy, the list goes on...Arians did a real good job of putting Ben in situations to make plays for us but the OL was key.

    We played great today, I just hope we dont go into Sunday night thinking its going to be as easy as it was today but I don't think we will

    and i agree with you on that drive before the second half

    when byron leftiwch came into the game, why not run a play action after a couple runs sending Holmes deep and just letting Byron launch the football?? i think we should have tried something like that

    another thing do you think Byron Leftiwchs passes are uncatchable? because his throws are accurate but our WR's cant handle it, or do you think that our WR's just arent used to the way he throws

    Yes, its very hard to find negatives with such a dominating performance. Only plays I didn't like were when Ben took some shots and got up slowly.

    I agree on the Byron "Nolan Ryan" fastballs. Is it necessary to break fingers with your passes? Sometimes those passes are necessary but it seems as though Byron doesn't know how to take anything off. Is there a changeup in the arsenal?

    I think it was a well called offense today, we were balanced pretty well, and we won the 3rd down battle.

    That was the first time I saw the Steelers execute to perfection in all 4 phases of the game. ( Offense, Defense, Special Teams and Coaching)

    Let's hope this was not a mirage and the players and coaches stay focused throughout the season.
