    Before his injury, Ben was having a career year and the Steelers were rolling. Problem is from a personnel perspective, the Steelers were not capable of running outside at all unless Mendenhall was in there and he wasn't. The line was shreaded with injuries so the pass protection broke down. Ben got hurt and Lefty and Batch are not Ben.

    Yes these are excuses, and while I do not completely agree with some of the play calls, was Ben ordered to run those plays or did he have the freedom to check out of them? How many times were the Steelers in 3rd and 2 from the 5 yard line and Ben throws a fade, which is a low percentage play? It's not like the Steelers were 5-11 this year. They were about 6 total plays away from being 12-4. If Haley comes back, I believe he will have a better understanding of what he has to work with and I look for a more expanded playbook in 2013. Throw away some things that don't work and implement some things that did.

    Believe me, Haley is the least of the Steelers offseason issues.

    Wouldn't the SMART thing to do would be to go to OT, and if you happen to lose the coin toss maybe force a turnover on defense for the 4th time that day?

    You can try to blame Ben all you want.

    The golf coach's play-calling does all my talking for me.

    The play-calling in the first half of the year was the same as it was when we played Cincy:

    Ben trying to save Chi Chi Rodriquez's *** on 3rd down.

    "Today, I'm officially retiring a Pittsburgh Steeler. And as much as I will miss football, my teammates, coaches and everything about the game, I don't want to play it in any other uniform. The black and gold runs deep in me, and I will remain a Steeler for life."--Hines Ward

    I can't think of a worse Offense for this team to run.

    Are you guys not familiar with "Air Coryell" ? Do you not know what elements and skill sets it requires most.

    Norv Turnver would be a terrible fit for our Offense (Ben, WRs, Heath)

    Wow ! At least one board member has been paying attention. How refreshing .
