2 things the offense was doing that it never did under Arians was keep Ben upright and use Heath Miller as a receiving threat.
There were 2 turning points for this season. The Cincy game in October had things heading in the right direction and then the KC game and Ben's injury turned in back downward. We were surviving all of the other injuries, but losing Ben and the fact that he is never right when he comes back was the death blow for this team this year.
Okay, I'll seek to understand your logic. Offense was clicking with Dink and Dunk, and D&D kept Ben upright. Then how the F did he get hurt?

The D&D used Miller as a receiving threat. That's fine but any team that has a TE leading in receiving yards with the WR corp we have is not using the WRs properly. Both AB and MW had over 1000 yds last year and we finished 12 - 4, with an ailing Ben.

Ben was never right when he came baqck? Sounds like an excuse to me. If he wasn't ready to play, I didn't see it. What I saw was a few key bad decisions with game on the line. I can't make this shit up man.

I'll give you the fact that the WRs dropped some balls and some folks fumbled away a few but Haley's inept O realy screwed us this year. 1st down - Run; 2nd down - Run; 3rd down pass is a disaster waiting to happen. D&D just won't get it done.

I think the Steelers should give Wallace whatever he wants.
This offense could absolutely never be able to fire on all cylinders without him.
Wallace is the piece of the missing puzzle on offense this year.
Oh wait, he was in the offense all year.

Trade Mendy and Wallace for fitz. Arizona needs a receiver and RB now that beanie wells is leaving.

You have got to wonder about Wallace's attitude. When the Steelers hired Todd Haley, he was one of the first to speak out in the media about how the new offense was going to spell doom for the Steelers, and hurt his style of play. Then, he held out. Then, he dropped numerous passes during the season. Then, he spoke out again, saying that he loses focus when they don't throw the ball to him. To add to everything, Mike Wallace is, pretty much, a one-dimensional receiver. Mike Tomlin called him a "one-trick pony." Whether the Steelers retain Todd Haley as Offensive Coordinator, or not, I'd be surprised if they keep Mike Wallace. He's outta here. If the Mike Wallace from 60 Minutes was still alive, I'd rather have him on the team than this Mike Wallace.

The offense wasn't clicking in the KC game before Ben got hurt and hasn't clicked since. I'll agree with you that Haley's scheme better utilized Heath and kept Ben upright but it did not play to the strengths of the receivers. The receivers all are fast (Brown and Sanders use quickness and precise routes) and ae good at getting deep where they play against guys their size. They do not do well taking a beating from LBers, hence the fumbling issues. Haley's scheme worked well for receivers like Boldin and Fitz, not so much for our guys.
I say the only way you keep Wallace is #1) if you are going to play to his strengths. 10 yard routes are not his strength. #2) you don't have to break the bank to keep him. He is a wasted signing, regardless of what you get him for, if you do not allow him to do what he does best.
Mendy is a head scratcher. He ran with purpose the last game. IMO he is too indecisive a runner. Add a bad attitude to that and I think you move on. This team needs leaders, not locker room cancers.

Shit rolls down hill. Bad, predictable schemes yield bad results. Players don't call play, they just run them. If the fans treat Mike with disdain, what are they gonna do for Ben and others on the offensive side of the ball?
You, Sir, are blessed with sound reasoning. Merry Christmas. Exactly my sentiments.
Mendy had a serious injury, should not have been deactivated after those fumbles. How many times did Antonio Brown screw up, and was he benched?

apparently you have no idea howe easy it is to look up some stas and make you look stupid.
last year under your boyy brucey, the steelers averaghed 20.3 points per game
this year under haley(first year implementing new offense) the steelers averaged 20.8 points per game.
20.8 is actuallu higher than 20.3, by the way.

Fitst I could personally care less than a fuck about Bruce or Todd, I just compared them based on some of you folks' logic. Stop trying to hurl insults and stick to the facts. We were 12 - 4 last year vs 7 - 8? this year. I'm looking at Ws and Ls. Dink and Dunk doesn't match the personnel we have on the team..
