View Full Version : Paradox Problem

The problem is Todd Haley and our offensive scheme.

The Pittsburgh Steelers have a quarterback whose strength is to buy time for making big plays downfield (pretty effective considering the Superbowl appearances).

Todd Haley's offensive focus is attacking the first 5 yards past the line of scrimmage (effectively ending the play) instead of setting up and attacking downfield.

Unfortunately for whomever is using that type of offensive scheme, the NFL now has rules that support passing downfield more than any other phase of the game. This is why all the top quarterbacks with offensive coordinators were the best teams last year.

Even the "vomit" Batlimore "vomit" Ravens and their dildo for a QB, were able to excel because their passing game excelled the moment former Indianapolis QB then Head Coach, Jim Caldwell, took over from Cam Cameron. Jim's focus on dildo passing downfield and opening up the passing attack...were the #1 reason why Baltimore reached and won the Superbowl last year. This is also why Bruce Arians did so well in Indianapolis with a solid rookie QB. Both these guys were offensive passing guru's who focused on passing the ball and more importantly, passing downfield.

The paradox problem for the Steelers is this....

Drafting for Todd Haley's "five yards past the line of scrimmage" offense can really screw up this draft and the future of offense. Getting offensive skills players to fit a system that does not play to the strengths of our QB is...well...stupid.

But...not drafting Todd Haley players means the Steelers will continue to play underneath the higher more potent passing teams in the league.

This is why I hope that the Steelers focus hard on the defensive end of the ball to help minimize the damage that would occur in the long run by taking "Todd Haley' kind of players".

like most paradoxes, yours is also an invalid argument, however, still important to the critical thinking and discussion that comes from the topic of Todd Haley's approach v. Ben's strengths that permeates 75% of the threads.

I think this is your opinion - a paradox statement. Well, that's just my opinion. And, damn I got myself messed up now - but, you get the point - well, maybe that's my opinion!

They had three good games.... for the 1000th time.

The playoff games should've been an indication how behind the times the Steelers are when it comes to offensive philosophies, as well as the fact most of the playoff teams weren't even in the top 5 in time of possession. Baltimore was 30th if I recall.

It's not a grind-it-out-and-impose-your-will possession league anymore, it's a score often and score quickly league. No, that's not something the Steelers dictate, the NFL dictates that. If the Steelers continue to try and fight it, they'll continue to be mediocre.

But hey, Artie is always right!

Big Ben was considered by many a MVP candidate before the injury. First half Pre Ben injury the offense was the strength of the team then after Ben got injured the defense was the strength.

Him having a MVP season prior to injury in the first year of a new system means that there is no problem and there should be improvements in the second year. I expect Ben to have another great season.

I do find it somewhat ironic that the Penguins have an owner that may have been the greatest player ever in hockey, and he doesn't get involved in hockey operations, while the Steelers owner never had any experience with football, yet thinks he can dictate the offense just because he has daddy's last name and grew up privileged.

Yup. Ben had to bail the offense out on third & long after RUTM and dink-and-dunk didn't work. Even when you have a QB of Ben's caliber, playing that outdated style will bite you in the ass eventually.

You know the reason the Penguins don't have alternate jerseys similar to what they wore in the early 90's when they won two Cups? Because Lemieux wants the focus to be on the team now, and not the Penguins back then. Meanwhile, Artie does everything he can to make sure this team looks just like granddaddy's team from the early 70's.

Seems pretty solid to me.

The thing I find amazing is that you post those projected numbers for Big Ben, and it still brings up questions about him and this offense with everyone. Here are two frames of mind when it comes to Ben.

Todd Haley is his offensive coordinator. On the one hand, you have fans that say Ben is not elite. Some think he's a bum. Even though those numbers are staring them in the face, they say "He is no Tom Brady", or "He loses too many games", or "His teams don't score enough points". Todd Haley's system works. Ben just has a problem with it, and won't run the system properly.

Todd Haley is his offensive coordinator. The other argument is that Ben can throw for the stats you list above, and he does it without an effective running game and a shitty OL. Imagine what he could do if the Steelers had scored 25 rushing TD like the Patriots and Tom Brady did last year. That would help your points per game average a bit. Even the haters should be able to see that.

Haley is part of the discussion in both. Here's my take. First of all, Ben is a great quarterback. He puts up good numbers, but not what the defense deficient teams with great qb's do like Brees, Brady, Rodgers, etc...I believe Haley's system works. The problem is, our offensive line has not been good enough or healthy enough to run his system effectively. The same can be said for our running backs. I believe that will start to change this year. I also believe that with the rule changes that benefit the passing game, adjustments have to be made within the system to maximize offensive production and put pressure on defenses to defend the whole field. A quality RB, and additional weapons for Ben are coming in the draft. If Haley can adjust to the league rules, optimize the talents of the players on the roster, and get the quality OL play that has been lacking, this offense will score points. This isn't like we're light years away from being a great offensive team. This can be done with a few key additions and a little tweaking from a guy that knows NFL offense. I have no problem running the ball, as long as it is effective. If you can't run the ball well, you only bog down the entire offense by trying to do something you can't and take opportunities away from the passing game. If you run the ball well, it creates opportunities for big plays down the field. I think we'll have more big plays this year, and the offense will start to develop.

They had three good games.... for the 1000th time.

The playoff games should've been an indication how behind the times the Steelers are when it comes to offensive philosophies, as well as the fact most of the playoff teams weren't even in the top 5 in time of possession. Baltimore was 30th if I recall.

It's not a grind-it-out-and-impose-your-will possession league anymore, it's a score often and score quickly league. No, that's not something the Steelers dictate, the NFL dictates that. If the Steelers continue to try and fight it, they'll continue to be mediocre.

But hey, Artie is always right!


STILLERZ GUTTA RUN DA BALL N'AT!

Yep, the O WAS good for three games, then it went south. Agreed. You also are alluding to Haley's penchant for his 5 yard offense. That I'm going to take issue with

Let me ask you this, in order for a QB to throw deep often, what is the most critical thing he needs? Time, right?

What is the one thing a QB doesn't get when his OL guys are dropping like flies? Time. Add to that, your QB has a bad shoulder, making longer throws not only painful, but often inaccurate, with a significant lack of velocity.

I'd bet the ranch that this year, IF this oline stays healthy and plays well, you are going to see almost as many down the field plays as you did with BA, but with much better balance.

Haley's system is fine, we were just short a few bodies. Through out the season we had 7 different starting OLs, and in one game we had 5 different OL combinations.

I don't care who the team is, when you have that many disruptions in personel, your offense is going to be inconsistent at best. And because of time, or the lack of it in the pocket, is going to limit your downfield opportunities.

Anyway, just my two cents.....

VaDave
04-10-2013, 07:48 AM
Let me add this, I'm not really worried about Steeler football 2013 and beyond mainly because our systems on both sides of the ball are set. The most successful team are the ones where we aren't changing coordinators at the drop of a hat. Our systems are proven.

As for "Haley's O, there is still a lot of BA in "his" offense. When you get down to it, there is still a lot of Ron Erhardt in it. Like the 34 counter pike, you know the one where the LG goes to his right and nails the kick out block, the one Willie Parker scored on in SB 40? Well, we still run that one about 8 to 10 times a game out of 30 some plays in a game, so to say this O is entirely Haley's is not exactly accurate.

no new Haley Scheme v. Ben's strengths threads for the love of Unicorns!

I'll assume the haters who won't give a healthy O a chance will be the first in line to say "I never said that, I said SO FAR it hadn't done anything . . ."

They're all hedging their bets quite nicely.

The thing is, you really should just enjoy Ben while you can and quit focusing on the nitty gritty so much when there are tons of factors into scoring and winning games.

Haley will be here this season so why not quit spewing out the same regurgitated things - we get it, "Yousa no like it." Let's move on . . .

They did have the league's best WR combo and an extremely accurate QB. Things we don't have. If not for Harrison they win that game. But that doesn't make Haley good or bad. Coaching crappy players gets you crappy results. Coaching in every sport is extremely overrated. You never saw Phil Jackson taking a job unless it was loaded with superstars. Bellichik as a HC was crap until Brady came along. As great as the Steelers were in the 90s..Bill couldn't get it done until he had Ben. Haley will be as good or as bad as the players he has to work with. I predict bad because we will be w/out Wallace, w/out Heath for a stretch, and we have a QB who holds the ball too long, a porous offensive line and no running backs.

We dominated the Arizona game. Ben drove them down the field on the first drive and our shit runningbacks couldn't punch it in from the 1.

After a 3 score lead we pretty much played conservative on both sides of the ball. Put that on the coaches. I don't blame them either since our D was that dominate that year.

I can argue that because it's my opinion. My opinion is that w/out that play the score is either 17-10 or 10-10. With how sloppy we played and conservative our coaching was, not to mention the adjustments they made which worked, they would have beaten us. That last drive was insane on Ben's part. I have never seen the likes of it. Truly epic. But like you said, that Harrison play changes everything so that may not have even happened. So my opinion is that if it didn't, we lose.

Sorry, but an opinion and a prediction of alternate realities are 2 very different things. It would require the ability to see the future which I doubt any of us can muster. What happened, happened and is now history. The need to continually bring up "What if...?" scenarios doesn't change what really happened... period.

A little known story, Hartwig played that game with a serious knee injury. Darnel Stapleton's ( RG) knees were so bad, they cut him after the season. Kemo's knees never were good. There was no interior push at the LOS, hence "We couldn't punch it in"...

What is interesting, is why in the world if you're an OC, and you have two fifths of your OL messed up, why would you be calling all of those running plays there? Better yet, how about the counter call out of the Endzone the play before the safety??

Kemo pulled like we were going to run the 34 counter pike, but for some odd reason, Kemo goes wide of the tackle box, and Parker in explicably runs it up the gut presumably avoid a stunting lineman that beat Stapleton and barely makes it out of the endzone. If Parker would have followed Kemo around the end, it looked like it would have gone for decent yardage.
