    Default (Officially) Arians is outta here....

    Seeing Ken Laird on ESPN 1250 has reported Arians has been canned. No legit link though as of yet.

    UPDATED per KDKA.com....

    That could be great news, although I don't want to get my hopes up. If it's true, I wonder if they already have their eye on a replacement?

    I just listened to ESPN radio on may way into work, they talked about it the whole time and said that the Steelers haven't officially made a press release.

    Arains is gone.

    Its deserved. In the physical AFCN we are the least physical team on offense. In a blustery cold day in Cleveland with 30 mph winds we threw the football 42 times and ran it 20. That is a joke....and that is why we mustered only 2 FG against the worst defense in football.

    Get a FB and a run game going and play action will help us out tremendously.

    Exactly, it's hard to imagine us having to go to some of these places (snow, wind, etc in the winter) in Dec/Jan, or even our own home field, and chuck the ball around 40 times and win.

    I'm not saying we need to go back to the Bettis days, I just want to see more balance.

    Spot on, sir! Balance and a variety of plays.

    Some element of surprise could be helpful, as long as it's not that head-slappingly awful gadget play we were treated to on Sunday.

    Colbert!

    He let our once proud interior line compiled of Jeff Hartings and Alan Faneca deteriorate and now players such as light in the *** Hartwig and fatbodies like Essex & Stapleton take their place!

    He also waited too long to try and have players groomed for NT, DL, and DB's!!!

    Did I say he was not above any blame? Get the dick out of your face and read the post.

    How you can put most of the blame a guy with 19 4th Qtr. comeback wins, 2 SB rings. And these #'s throughout his career?

    TD-INT 127-81
    Passing yards 19,302
    QB Rating 91.7

    All I hope is we have a plan for our interior offensive line....the real reason we don't have much of a running game. Personally, I miss the days that we could run when we needed to, but am not sure that was Arians main shortcoming. In my mind his shortcoming was the inability to adjust during the game, inability to come up with some sort of redzone offense that was effective, and basically the all or nothing approach we had on offense.

    The run game won't officially be back in Pittsburgh until we address the interior offensive linemen and get a real FB though. You watch. Next season I can still see lots of 3 and outs if we try and go to the run, run, pass offense of Cowher days.

    We need to work on the short passing game for next year, or until we address the interior line....specifically until we get a badass center.

    The question was asked who's next in line for the blame. I gave you an answer based on the general reaction of most fan bases. If you don't like, go **** yourself *******.
