There have been several reports going on about Bruce Arians lately. Some reports have said that he will be fired later on in the week. Others have claimed that he has been fired already. I have found out that neither of these stories are true.
Bruce Arians will once again be our offensive coordinator heading into next year. There are not enough words to describe how I am feeling right now. Just when we all thought the fool was finally leaving, Tomlin decides to keep him.
And to make matters worse, it has been said that Arians himself started the reports about him leaving!
So where does that leave us? It leaves us with a man with a lot of knowledge of the offense who can not handle calling plays. It leaves us with another year of predictable playcalling and offense inconsistency. It leaves us with another year of pass pass pass, red zone inconsistency and more shotgun on third and short.
But the good news is next year will be the final year of his contract. We can finally say goodbye then. But I just hope, for the Steelers sake, that Arians becomes more committed to the run next year. But in all honesty, I don't see it happening.
