are the Steelers offensive woes ALL Arians fault??


Now, this ad is not defending B.A. BUT, everyone, myself included wants us to run the ball more.  Look at the Ravens Ray Rice and what he does.  Now, I truley believe that mendy is the better back...size, speed and power.  The Ravens utilize him more than we use mendy.  I know that the 3rd and 1 with the empty backfield drives me crazy.  The shotgun formation in 3rd and 1 is OK with a RB next to BB..this keeps the defense honest in respecting the run(draw) which is fine!  We all seem to talk about "Steeler" football with us grinding the yards out..we had Marvel Smith, Kendall Simmons, Jeff Hartings, Alan Faneca and Max Starks..Problem, we dont have that type of line anymore.  That was a dominate O-Line..Is this line a dominate line??  Or, as most people suggest, an average line???  We dont have a Jordan Gross, or Otah, saturday..etc, etc..Do I think this is a dominate O-Line? No! with this line, we may not be able to grind a team down...besides Kemo, who is a mauler??  Our backups??  Legursky? Stapleton?  Urbik?  WFT??  What I am getting at is B.A. is playing with the cards he is dealt...no to say is a good OC, he is not, but, look what the offense has done...VERY inconsistant which means an O-line problem..
