Arians is barely beating really crap competition and he's doing it behind a QB who even as a rookie is 10 times better than anyone the Chiefs have had in 10 years. People who believe he's one of the top choices are chasing after shiny objects.
there's nothing to stretch here but to deny the truth -- Pagano's team. Not Arians' call. To say Arians makes adjustments during games is like saying Luck plays well during the fourth qtr -- it's what these folks do and they do it under Pagano's plan. That's not extraordinary for them and it is the reason they are on Pagano's team.
As for the wins -- they are MOTR in all three phases. They caught the Vikes during a bad stretch, had a few breaks during other games. All will come back to earth for them against Houston.
Arians deserves a shot as HC somewhere. He's obviously going to get one since the HC pool has been so poor over the past 2 decades. Arians is a clever coach, not sure I'd say he's going to be a champ at HC though, but who knows. Especially with the league wide parity changes and NBA like rules etc, I guess any avg HC can go yard nowadays.
