Doing an impressive job in Indy so far(including that great COMEBACK WIN IN THE 4TH Q against green bay) and molded Big Ben into an impressive QB(NOT human being, but QB) who's not too bad himself at comeback wins). I don't know too much about him but might he be an option for our next HC(assuming Rivera's inevitable canning)? Your thoughts?

I'd actually love to see Bruce Arians as our next head coach. He's a tough-minded, hard-nose guy that knows how to deal with mobile QBs that could have emotional issues.

Not much. That he was a dink and dunker with little creativity.

He's still doing a great job in Indy as of now though as a head coach.., he doesn't have to do the playcalling, does he?

Bruce Arians is a horrible offensive coordinator. Example, last year when Roethlisberger was dealing with his ankle injury, he still insisted they run the majority of their plays from a 5 wide set and almost every third down, no matter the distance, involved them utilizing the 5 wide receiver formation.

Luck isn't dinking and dunking right now, so I don't know if he does things differently as a head coach. One thing this season(s) should of taught us is that the quality of coordinating one side fo the ball does not tell if a coach can actally manage a game on all sides of the ball.

Funny story. I actually met Bruce Arians a few years back. He was playing tennis in our neighborhood park and I was throwing the football with a friend. He literally stopped what he was doing to coach me up on my mechanics...I was quarterbacking in high school at the time.
