Arians still gets players respect


Recommended Posts

Matt Spaeth, TE for the Bears has a lot of really nice things to say about Arians.  It's possible they could be reunited in Chicagoland.

 

Snippets-

 

"I really like him as a coach, and obviously as a guy. If you look at his journey, success seems to follow him."

 

"I can tell you that when Pittsburgh got rid of him, nobody was happy in that locker room, especially Ben (Roethlisberger). Ben has a lot of pull around there and he was upset. People were mad because of the job Bruce does."

 

"Bruce is known for his aggressive, downhill running game that sets up the great play action. He puts quarterbacks in a good position to be successful, in my opinion. Roll outs, bootlegs, play actions ... those are the kinds of things he does to help the quarterback. He knows how to get his QB out of the pocket and the results speak for themselves."

I haven't noticed us doing many rollouts and bootlegs other than the occasional one where Luck runs it in for a TD.  Arians has been a very good hire (kudos to Pagano for that).  The man is very well respected around the league.  Big Ben has nothing but good things to say about him

I'm hoping he stays, with a good Oline his play calling will be extremely dangerous. Stay here Bruce, finish what you started a win a ring here 1st.

I agree with both you guys. I wasn't crazy about some of the plays that exposed Luck, like the empty backfield sets, with the O line we have.

I hope he stays but I'm not counting on it.

    • Totally agree on everything except Nelson.   TY is a guy who needs to get separation to be effective.  Which means he requires routes that are further downfield.  I think that's one of the reasons why he didn't work that well with JB.  JB was allergic to throwing downfield.  Thus, not much TY.   Yes, I think Nelson could be good at LT.  I think Nelson could be good at anything.  He could probably play punter if he set his mind to it.  But his best position is at LG.  Put the aces in their places.  If he needs to play LT, he could.  But I wouldn't design my roster around it.   Totally need to bring back Rhodes, Autry, and Houston along with TY.  Rhodes, because RYS hasn't fully developed, and we can't simply have Rogers and Tell as the starting CB's until they've proven they're better than the starters we already have.  Autry and Houston because not only can they still rush the passer, they can function as 1st down run defenders.  The next guys up have yet to prove that.  We still need that in our defensive line.
    • Much appreciated.  I couldnt listen today
    • The problem is young pass rushers are very expensive and there aren’t many out there. Lewis could eventually be good in that spot.  But I think we need one more year to see.
    • I am not moving him to the other side. Much easier for Nelson to move over one spot. He mentioned If Nelson is a generational guard he should be able to do it. Id he can’t then he is just a guard.   Also mentioned he would trade Okereke if the Lions asked. 
    • Yeah, I love to listen Rick Venturi he's intelligent and knows what he's talking about unlike most guys who are self proclaimed experts in this area. I agree with him on everything except I think we need a young pass rusher instead bringing back Houston who had a okay year at DE. But to me okay year isn't good enough. But I haven't given up on Lewis just yet if he comes into camp next season fully healthy then maybe we could see his full potential then make a true evaluation.  IMHO
