So what do you believe is the solution here? That Ben needs to shut up and actually follow Haley's playbook?
You may have expounded on this elsewhere, but I am coming late to this discussion.
I think Haley's playbook is perfectly fine. It was good enough to produce a historic 3 1000 yard receivers with the Cards (which wasn't duplicated after he left).
Haley would still be the HC of the Chiefs if Matt Cassel had not self-destructed in the 2010 playoffs and never recovered. Crennel got fired one year after he did. Cassel is still there.
The Steelers already have fixed the biggest problem with the Steelers when they drafted Mike Adams and David DeCastro last year. After 5 years of neglecting the OL they finally drafted one. When those guys play to their potential there will be a solid running game and a better and balanced offense.
The Steelers need to do what they always do and not freak out after one bad season like all the bad teams do. Keep Wallace for A Brown money or let him walk. Keep Mendenhall. Run the ball behind a young offensive line that is full of high draft picks and put Ben in 3rd and shorts.
