    Exactly. Doesn't matter how many perfect plays you call, if your quarterback has 1 seconds to throw the ball, not a single play is going to evolve like you would want it to.

    Do you think he actually had that long? I think the defenders were beating the ball to him.

    I get what you all are saying about the line, but how many hits did Ben take running the hurry up offense? NONE!!

    They always seem to do better in the no-huddle. I'm not sure why they don't open with it, and try to set the tone. Of course, giving up a 19 play, 11 minute drive kind of set the tone in the wrong direction.

    Correct me if I'm wrong but the dilapidated state of our offensive line should not be a surprise to Arians! It's his job to call plays which will make the best of a shoddy O line!

    His run plays are virtually the same play every time which allows the D to cheat!

    He fails to call plays which will get the ball out of Ben's hands before the O line breaks down!

    He fails to call draws and delayed plays which could make the D pay for cheating!

    Today's offensive futility is absolutely on Arians! We can't expect five guys named Joe to make the difference!

    I thought Arians did okay today as well but if I could have changed one call it would have been the 3rd and 2 draw handoff to Redman which got stopped short about a 1/2 yard before they tied the game at 10-10. I would have tried a quick screen pass to Brown in the flat that would have at least got you a first down, and probably with Brown's speed might have got you a TD. Brown was also wide open on the hitch and go play before the half right after the 15 yard run by Moore was negated on the penalty by Pouncey and Ben completely overthrew him and it would have been an easy TD.
