Despite Parker breaking about every other run, Arians continues to go away from it by passing on 1st down, passing on 3 straight downs, etc.

This game will be won by the team that can establish the run and control the ground.

And yet every time the Steelers show they are capable of doing so, Arians kills all the momentum by calling 2-3 of his marquee slowly-developing pass plays in a row.

Not only could they get Ben injured, and are more likely to cause a turnover, but they will end up costing Pittsburgh this field position battle bigtime.


Arians' playcalling just fucking disgusts me sometimes.  It's like they want to prove they don't have to play "Steelers football" to win.

Soooooooooooooooooooo the Steelers finally get back on the field in the 3rd quarter after probably the longest possession against them of the year.

Ball at their own 20.

Snow coming down.

Ben with a shoulder injury.


And once again, Arians calls one of his 5-step drops right off the bat.  Ben is sacked.  Now 2nd and 19 from their own 11, already down 9.

You fucking suck Arians.  Your fucking play calling alone could easily cost this team a decent playoff seeding, and end their season earlier than it should be.

Asshole.

As I continue my personal rant, it's now the start of the 4th quarter, and just to reiterate:

Willie Parker
9 rushes
55 yards
6.1 YPC


In a game like this, it is fucking inexcusable that Parker only has 9 rushes, especially considering his YPC right now.  

Obviously, down 22-7, you can't run the ball a lot....but the problem is that Arians' continued calling of ineffective pass plays limited the Steelers' time of possession, and kept Pittsburgh's offense off the field.

Third and 7, throw to the sticks.

Fourth and 7, game on the line, tight end screen that comes up short.







What a fucking moron.


Arians and Marvel oughtta be shot for this performance.

Arians has been awful the past couple of weeks.  

Do we have 3 plays in the book?  A draw on 3rd and long (of which, we seem to be in often), some sort of screen to Ward that takes forever to develop, and the usual long bomb to Homes, either at the start of the game or the start of the 3rd Quarter.

Now isn't the time to shit the bed but we've got diarrehea bad.  No pepto in sight.

But Willie rushed for 100 yards, Ben threw 3 TDs and the defense finally got an INT.

Things should be going well, right?

Welp, that's it.

Obviously, LeBeau and the defense have to take a huge amount of the blame for looking as inept as I have ever seen a Steelers' defense look against the run.

But for the second game in a row, Parker has been able to tear off big runs, boast a great YPC, and still, Arians failed to give them a chance to completely establish the run, control the ball, and eat a bunch of clock.

I'm very disappointed in Bruce Arians in these big games.  The man has no patience with the run when the Steelers are behind.

I only caught bits and pieces of the game and I'm ticked.  I feel sorry for you guys who had to watch the whole thing.
