    Thank you Bruce Arians for implementing the short passing game

    Ben was only sacked once today. He had all kinds of time to throw the ball when he did need it for the most part. Fortunately though, he took the quick passing and ran with it. Ben was able to make the quick drop, find his target and get rid of the ball. When you combine that the good play of Max Starks and the offensive line playing better than they have all year long and you can see just how effective it was.

    Ben was 24/34 for 228 yds. 5 TD's and 1 INT. The INT was a total miscommunication between him and the WR's to his right. Ward was there and I believe Wallace too. The most important stat though was only 1 sack. I don't care if he has 150 yds or 350 yds, you get rid of the ball and good things happen for you. This is what the fans have been screaming for, for years. Especially this year though with the way the offensive line has played and the way Ben was getting killed all year. When the pressure comes at you and you are having problems handling it, the only logical way to counter that is to run the ball and use the quick/short passing game.

    I haven't felt that comfortable and relaxed watching a Steelers game in a long time, LOL. Give credit where it's due. For as much as we and the rest of the Steeler Nation complains about Arians, he called a good game today and made the adjustments needed to help the offense move the ball

    It only adds to my frustration because we all knew many of these problems were fixable but this coaching staff is way too damn stubborn.

    I have absolutely no complaints about the game that BA called today. It was perfect in every aspect. Not one play that I can think of and say "why the **** did he do that?"

    That interception by Ben just before half time; I can see the logic of Ben wanting to catch the Titans napping with the quick snap. However I would have preferred them to spike it, and try to get the extra FG. They had one timeout left at that point. However you can say though too that Ward and Wallace weren't on the same page with him.

    Trust me though, if that's my only complaint then I'm pretty happy

    I think that was Ben's call. Not BA's.

    Thank you Ben for Checking down and getting the ball out quick. Arians can call the plays but it's up to the players to execute.

    I was surprised that either Wallace or Ward were not on the same page with Ben on that faked spike play....Oh well but yes BA called a fantastic game and really BA's problem is he is so damn stubborn at times.....I think that is why him and Ben get along so well...Ben can be just as stubborn...lol

    I don't think anyone but Ben was on the same page as Ben for that play.

    well maybe the WR's need to get their heads in the game as well....Dan Marino beat the Jets on a fake spike back in the mid 90s thanks to his WR being on the same page as him.....
