    Offensive genius my ***!

    So Haley is an offensive genius? He only knock is that he is a hothead? Bull ****!

    Dwyer has earned the right to carry the ball yet Haley calls pass plays 3 to 1.

    If Redman is in the game he is getting the ball.

    Have we seen creative plays when the games were on the line?

    Have we seen anything that says genius?

    And you can tell by their demeanor on the sidelines that he and Ben both know Haley is Ben's bitch.

    We haven't seen genius or hothead!

    The scoring rank is misleading when the defense does not force turnovers. Every drive they score on is 75-80 yards, simply takes too much time. And we also don't go for quick scores also. That hurts them.

    Too worried about chewing clock and not scoring points.

    Good point. Why chew the clock when the trend has been for the other team has been to score quickly after the Steelers kick a field goal for 3? Especially when the D is not forcing turnovers. This game plan seems oddly asymmetrical. The record reflects his.

    Because Coach Art is enamored with an outdated style of football. Today's NFL is no longer about TOP, it's about quick scores.

    They play scared on both sides of the ball. On defense, they don't go for INTs because they are scared about giving up a big play if the DBs mistime the pick. On offense, they're worried that Ben will get hurt (which he already did), and they still think scoring quickly is a bad thing.

    When you play scared, close to the vest football, you won't be much better than 8-8.

    Because at some point you are going to have to attack a defense. Chewing clock is one thing, chewing clock at the expense of points is inexcusable.

    Or maybe the problem is an owner enamored with an outdated style of football.

    To sum it all up - this team plays scared. The offense is worried that scoring fast will result in the defense being more tired, which will lead to a shootout. They're scared that Ben will get hurt. Scared, scared, scared. The Steelers used to be a team that grabbed a game by the throat, now they just play not to lose.
