Todd Haley did. I don't think he should be fired, he just needed to have Heath Miller more involved at that point in the game.

Go back in time and clone every Steeler during the 1970s. We would have no problems except for a lot of Unnecessary Roughness penalties which were uneccesary back in those days.

Although it is worth noting that the last time the Steelers won the Super Bowl, it was with the trio of Willie Parker (post-injury), Mewelde Moore, and Gary Russell.

I thought the backs in '08 were

1. Parker (injured)
2. Mendenhall
3. Moore

moore was money as a 3rd down back, and fast willie was better than any rb we have now.

Willie Parker, before he got injured, was the #1 ranked RB in the NFL. He was a beast.

Just so everyone knows, I meant to quote this post:

ben isn't tom brady or aaron rodgers, he's more of an elway type of qb, who didn't win anything until he had terrell davis

But anyways, Mendenhall only played in 4 games that year, and suffered a season-ending injury in his first start against the Ravens.
