Loss of Arians would be welcome

Steelers offensive coordinator Bruce Arians could be in jeopardy of losing his job.

The Post-Gazette reported Tuesday that Arians might not return for the 2011 season.

If that's the case, then I'm all for it.

Of course, we went down this road last season when Arians' hold on the job was slippery. He stayed with the Steelers, so I'm not getting my hopes up.

I never was thrilled with Arians from Day One. Maybe that's because he used to be with the Browns, and we all know how well the Browns have been since their return to the NFL.

I know Arians has his defenders, and they like to point to the fact that he has a Super Bowl championship on his resume.

However, how is Arians perceived around the NFL?

If any other team across the league thought he was a good coordinator or had the stuff to be a head coach, surely the offensive coordinator of a former Super Bowl champ would have had his name come up in some coaching searches by now.

That hasn't been the case with Arians. Maybe the Steelers finally have figured it out, too.

But I tell parents, you can have the right helmet, the perfect pads on, and still end up with a paraplegic kid. There’s no correcting it. There’s no helmet that’s going to correct it. There’s no teaching that’s going to correct it. It just comes down to it’s a physically violent game. Football players are in a car wreck every week.
