    That and a lot of our offense is predictable, like I said, if Redman is in the game, he is getting the ball (surprise!)
    Who will be Todd Haley's first victim on national TV ...... and when?

    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!
    Oh do shut up.

    Like you think first year results would present a top 5 offense.

    ****ing idiot.

    Sick and tired of haley bashing.

    Guess people don't really watch the games, we've passed the ball 523 times compared to 353 rushing attempts. Art II never said he wanted to go back to smash mouth football, he said he wants the Steelers to run the ball more effectively.

    Unlike Jerry Jones you won't see Art demanding certain plays to be called.

    Ah, careful now. Dan may never have interfered, but there's evidence to suggest Art does. Lets not give Art praise just because he has the same last name as his father.

    Perhaps I should be more clear when I say "outdated football." Obviously, the Steelers aren't playing 70's yinzer smashmouth. By "outdated" I mean they are overly concerned with time of possession rather than focused on scoring. They've taken points away from themselves because they fear the defense will be tired or they're scared that they could get into a shootout.

    Sometimes you just don't have the personnel to run the ball. The o-line is decimated and have rookies playing so there is a learning curve which takes time to play out. We have RBs that fumble every other series and get hurt from an arm tackle. It's not that he doesn't want to run the ball but more of they can't run the ball.

    More than that, unless Mendenhall is playing, almost 100 percent of all runs go between the tackles. Redman and Dwyer don't have the speed to take a toss and Rainey is too small. Holes will open up if you force a defense to defend the entire field in the running game vs between the hashes where the Steelers currently execute the majority of their running game.

    They have to find a way to open it up a little bit and become less predictable running the ball.

    7. The success we've had on offense this year have been due to Ben and not the scheme.

    Yeah the Rooneys may be playing and outdated style of football, but you just don't change the identity of a franchise with such success over night. Maybe that's what the hiring of Haley is an attempt to catch up with the high scoring league the NFL has become. Don't get me wrong I like to see deep passes to Wallace or AB or a 20 yarder to Heath, but watching Troy slice thru the line and IMO nearly beating the ball to dalton was just as fun. It's most definitely an offense friendly league this day and age, and expecting a new OC to come in and lead us to a good post season run was a good possibility, but it just wasn't in the cards. Just need to put this in the books as a re-building year and it was painful to watch!

    Art fired Arians.
