    Big Ben endorses Bruce Arians

    http://www.nfl.com/news/story/0ap100...nfl-head-coach

    Ben Roethlisberger has nothing but glowing remarks about Bruce Arians, who served as the Pittsburgh Steelers' offensive coordinator for five years.

    The Steelers quarterback told the Chicago Tribune's Brad Biggs that Arians, now the Indianapolis Colts' offensive coordinator, is a players coach who can be hard on guys when it's needed. That was apparent in the way the Colts responded to Arians while coach Chuck Pagano battled leukemia.

    Arians is a candidate for the open Chicago Bears, San Diego Chargers, Cleveland Browns and Philadelphia Eagles jobs.

    "I talked to him every week, and I kept a real close eye on him and was just so happy for him and that team and what they were able to do this year," Roethlisberger said of Arians. "I know that it wasn't always easy with Chuck being out and all that stuff. No one better to fill that spot than Bruce."

    Since Roethlisberger waxed poetic about Arians, it's hard not to think about the quarterback's relationship with current Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley. Roethlisberger criticized the new offense several times in 2012. He regularly apologized for those criticisms, but the partnership clearly isn't as lovey-dovey as it was with Arians.

    Apparently it's also hard to for the media to take what he says at face value for a change.

    Some of our fans need to get over this really.....Ben and BA will always be close friends and there is nothing wrong with Ben supporting his close friend to be a potential HC.......

    I have no problems with him and BA, none at all. However I would love to hear Ben come out and endorse his current OC at least act like he's buying into his system.

    The manlove for BA seems to be contagious. I can't believe this guy is being mentioned
    for a few coaching vacancies. They do realize the team was playing inspired because
    of Pagano's illness and that afterall he had freakin ANDREW LUCK flinging the pigskin??
    I think BA did a admirable job, but really? Desperation is a funny thing I guess.
