Bruce Arians Has a Type, and That Type Looks a Lot Like Andre Roberts

8200658214_17028daa55_b Photo by Football Schedule I was reading Davis Mattek’s exhaustive look at Larry Fitzgerald’s prospects in 2013 and became intrigued by the following paragraph:
Many have spoken about Arians’ ability to create favorable fantasy situations for wide receivers. He coached Mike Wallace to WR1 seasons in 2011 and 2010, Santonio Holmes to a WR2 campaign in 2009, and Hines Ward to WR15 in 2008. In fact, Holmes, Ward and Reggie Wayne all finished exactly as WR15 in their campaigns with Arians, which if nothing else, is at least a funny coincidence.
I took a look at Arians’ stints as the offensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns (2001-2003), as wide receivers coach and offensive coordinator of the Pittsburgh Steelers (2004-2011) and offensive coordinator and interim head coach of the Indianapolis Colts last year. Reviewing the data, it is clear that Arians’ offenses have room for more than one WR to perform.
