    1. Ben Roethlisberger (post injury) - Losses to SD, Dal, Cin
    2. Lack of Player Leadership - No one has filled the Farrior/Ward void
    3. Dick Lebeau System - Losses to Ten and Oak
    4. Lack of Impact Players (Defense) - Takeaways and Sacks simply too few
    5. Lack of Pass Rush - No consistent threats
    6. Tomlin Head Coaching ability - Loss to Ten
    7. Injuries - Losses to Cle and Bal. The only injury a team can't overcome is at QB.
    8. Oline Ability - Young and Injured, but better than the last few years
    9. Lack of Running Game - Not an issue for other contenders (GB)
    10. Todd Haley Play Calling - Prior to Ben injury, best 3rd down offense in football, Red zone still an issue
    11. Lack of Impact Players (Offense) - They simply underperformed (Wallace, Brown)
    12. Todd Haley System - Ben was MVP candidate before injury

    You know you look like an idiot when you rip Haley in one thread, and then in another you are talking about how Ben was an MVP candidate before his injury

    Because of 3rd down Ben, not because of Haley.

    Ben saved Haley's *** on 3rd down all year.

    What was 3rd down like when Ben wasn't playing?

    The play-calling in that Bengals game should get Haley fired Monday at Noon.

    If it doesn't? The Rooney's don't want to win and Ben will play elsewhere.

    Pretty bad, like most teams when they have a 38 yr old backup playing

    Who audibled to a run on 3rd and 2 in the 3rd Q vs Cin? Haley or Ben?
    (Ben)

    Who calls the plays during the no huddle?
    (Ben)

    Who threw 4 picks in the last 3 games from the no huddle?
    (Ben)

    Among all the plainly unintelligent stuff you blather on about regarding the actual game of football... this nugget of social commentary is an especially stupid inference.

    Who called a WR screen, and three runs from the Steelers 46 with 3 minutes to go?

    Haley.

    Who called two run plays on our only two 1st down red zone plays all day?

    Haley.

    Who called a 3rd and 2 FADE PATTERN with Byron ****ing Leftwich in the red zone?

    Haley.

    If Haley stays, Ben won't.
