Top quarterbacks with new coordinators last year and the ppg their offenses produced:
Roethlisberger 2011 20 ppg 2012 21 ppg
Tom Brady 2011 32 ppg 2012 35 ppg
Matt Ryan 2011 25 ppg 2012 26 ppg
Cutler 2011 22 ppg 2012 23 ppg
P Manning 2010 27 ppg 2012 30 ppg
Rivers 2011 25 ppg 2012 22 ppg
Flacco 2011 24 ppg 2012 25 ppg
Romo 2011 23 ppg 2012 23 ppg
Rodgers 2011 35 ppg 2012 27 ppg
Conclusion: Seeing that only Rodgers offensive production changed significantly, if a team wants to score more points they are better off with a new quarterback than a new coordinator.
All those teams you mentioned aren't obsessed with ball control offenses - they actually try to score. I keep telling you that, but you seem incapable of understanding.
This is yinzer nation in the offseason:
"Ben don't gotta throw da ball more den 20 times! Gotta run da ball! Gotta rest da defense! Da stillerz dun't need ta score more points cuz da stiller defense will be well-rested!"
This is yinzer nation after a close loss:
"BEN WHY DIDN'T YINZ DO MORE! YINZ STINK! YINZ GOTTA SCORE MORE POINTS! BOOOOOOOOO!"
Don't demand the offense play ball-control and then go on demanding more points. Want more points? Gotta make some quick strikes and not worry about protecting the defense all the time.
