    They better get someone at OC that is going to control ben.

    New outside blood will be needed at OC it looks like.

    When you make definitive, all encompassing, statements such as "there will never be a fullback in my offense" you are letting the world know you have a closed mind.

    My biggest concern is that he wasn't fired the next day. It's not that a "fullback" is a prerequisite but coaching in the NFL is all about being able to adapt.....his statement clearly indicates that he was not!

    Arians' "firing" best Steeler news in a long time. Feeling very vindicated after penning articles demonstrating BA's incompetence, and after advising SA readers not to panic. After hearing Tomlin's end-of-season press comments, was not hard to predict that change was in the offing. Cudos to Steeler FO for finally seeing the light.

    Re Ben calling Arians, thankfully NFL rules prohibit phone calls from the sidelines. Teammates will need to keep Ben away from cell phones during halftime.

    Couldn't have said it better myself.
    The Steeler way...is the only way.

    Gives the sense that Ben is going to call him every time something happens, "see I knew this wouldn't have happened if you were still here Bruce"

    can't remember where i read this the other day, but the author of the article wrote about how arians went to a pistol type offense for the titans game because ben was hurt. he used more short, quick passes and the team had one of their best offensive days ever under arians...AND BEN DIDN'T HAVE FUN DOING IT!

    we definitely need someone to tell ben what's what and actually make him play in a system that is best for the team, not for how much fun ben haves. i guess maybe ben likes getting hit by 300 pound lineman. if it weren't for his 2 rape allegation i could make the case for ben being in the closet...or maybe he's just over compensating? i'm just joking, but damn, how is not getting hit, throwing 34 times, 5 TD's, and a passer rating of 116.2...not to mention, WINNING THE GAME, not fun?

    If Ben doesn't like it get rid of him. I can't stand people that get paid 100 mill and complain

    I remember reading the slideshow from BleacherReport.com. Title is how a new OC can help the Steelers offense better. Here's the link, it's on page 5 if this link doesn't take you to it.

    Arians said that he has been contacted by "five or six" teams since Friday, but wouldn't go into specifics.
    Some how I doubt that very much.
