I don't know why...we only gave up 50 sacks, and those run blocking schemes are to die for..

Yep.  But another report surfaces indicating Arians can stay.

One down, but TWO more need to go.

What befuddles me is what's taking so long on axing that fine ST coach of ours (if you can actually call him a coach)

The way they are handling all of this is very strange.

Ligs is a done deal, surely.  Is there any doubt that he needs to go?

You can't possibly convince me that ALL of the offensive issues go back to the oline.  It's Arians who is responsible for designing the offense and supervising the offensive staff.  Perhaps Tomlin is trying to save face by allowing Arians to leave, rather than giving in to pressure from fans and the organization?

Just bizarre, IMO.

Next year is the last year on his contract.  That's an out for the organization/Tomlin to get rid of him without actually firing him.


I'm talking about Tomlin.  Guess I was in the wrong thread.  I must be stupider than Cook and Arians combined.

Looks like you've been missing a lot of work lately.
I wouldn't say I've been *missing* it, Bob.

I think the Steelers are trying to get WVU to cave on Bill Stewart's buyout so they can bring him in to coach ST.
