Walker is usually pretty good but Cameron >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Arians and it's not even close.

Honestly, it is shocking that Walker wrote something so ridiculous.

Just consider the first sentence:

"Despite the Steelers being ranked No. 29 in total offense..."

He should have ended the article right there.

I can't believe I'm actually typing this but in Arians' defense, it's hard to grade his performance this year given the QB situation.  Let's at least give him the chance to inevitably fail with Ben at the helm before grading him out.

Gotta agree with this.

He actually called some non-shitty games, notably the TB win.

And here's something else.  The OL has played much better this year, so it will be interesting to see how that affects BA's playcalling WRT to the rushing game.

I know ARE had some clutch grabs in the Ravens loss, but it will be interesting as well to see if BA can integrate Manny Sanders the way he did Mike Wallace.  This might mean less ARE as the season goes on; so be it.

My main beef hasn't been overall yardage, but rather RZ performance.  Also, we've stuttered on 3rd down conversions under BA.  Would like to see more cohesive drives.  Hard to do with the carousel of gimps we've had at QB thus far tho.

I'd like to see him keep using Mendy and Redman but in less predictable situations.  Just keep working them in and get Mendy his 100 yards if possible.  The OL does seem much improved this year but I wonder what it'll look like when Ben gets back and starts holding the ball for 6 seconds.

There were a handful of plays that Batch had forever and a day to throw but he couldn't decide if he should run or pass, so hopefully that is a sign of good things to come from the OL.  I think the key difference is Ben needs to learn to stay in the pocket sometimes.  It's easier to block when you know where your QB is.  Obviously the rollout is vital to Ben's success, but I think he would have much more time to throw if he just hung in there a little longer.
