    Default Fire Bob Ligashesky

    Special Teams coverage sucks. It's been allowing too many returns for TD's and today against the Bengals it was the difference in a very tight game where we kept the Bengals offense doing very little to nothing while Ben was overthrowing his recievers, throwing to the wrong colors and Bruce Arians was trying to lose the game for us with playcalling the Bengals wanted.

    Ligashesky has done nothing but coached the Pitt Panthers ST's into being one of the worst in the country and then coached the St.Louis Rams special teams to being one of the worst in the league before Mike Tomlin hired him to come here and make our special teams coverage unit suck ***.

    Three kickoff returns for T.D's in nine games is unacceptable!

    "Fire Bob Ligashesky" from one of those circus cannons and see if we can shoot him from the Point to Heinz Field. If he survives the landing, he can clean his locker and desk out.

    Our offensive play calling is clueless. Arians has to go no matter what Ben 'overthrow' thinks about it. And take the clueless **** ST coach with you.

    Definitely... sometimes a QB will have an off game. today Ben had a terribly off day. When that happens, it's going to be a tight game and when that happens, you can't have special teams giving up 6. You just can't and it's been happening too often this season. 3 returns for TD's against on the season and we are allowing teams good starting field position as well. Unacceptable because it's been consistent all season long

    Oh,I agree and having Reed kicking off to the 20 isn't helping matters either.

    No, it isn't. crappy coverage unit plus short kicks hurts

    Arians while he doesn't make in game adjustments very well, I do like some of the stuff he has done. Bunch formation, the no-huddle is nice when they let them do it. It could be a lot worse but ST Coach should be relieved of duties asap. Unfortunately the Steelers don't even fire guys mid-season. I have had enough though, big change needs to be made, let's start at the top.

    The only thing that arians could do, and that I would approve of is to quit or drop dead on the sideline.

    The Steelers really need to look at resigning Anthony Madison for his special teams play. He is a difference maker. Our special teams we far superior last season and Madison was one of the key special teams players.

    I can agree with that. he was realy good on Special Teams, but even so, this hasn't been a consistent and good Cover unit under bob Ligashesky. Often times you can see the team go down field and over commit to one side and the return man take off the other way and break one. I mean, there's more to it but you can't afford to have Special teams breakdowns. We have a half decent coverage team and we win this game today. Special Teams are important. bob Ligashesky isn't doing his job.

    ST have been deplorable for seasons on end... I think it's moreso a philosophy than a coaching thing.... Now yea, it probably rounds the circle back to coaching as well, but there has to be a reason or something that explains why we suck at it year after year.

    You guys might think I'm crazy, but I'd give a roster spot to a specialist who can kick off. It's done with a long snapper, why not for someone who can get the ball into the endzone. Sure I like Reed as a FG kicker but WTF is his problem with kicking off?

    I'd do it too, unfortunately with this ocverage team, you've only solved half of the problem, get a guy that can kick deep, now you've likely outkicked a ****ty coverage team that can't break blocks or over commit to side of a field. We'd just see longer kick returns but id still be in favor of carrying a kick off specialist
