The drops have been the worst I can remember from a Steelers team. The fumbling was a record worst in the Cleveland game. None of that is on the OC.

What I like about Haley is that Ben has changed his game and was successful pretty early doing it. He's getting rid of the ball and staying upright for the most part. He still ad libs when needed, but isn't making a living off of it. I think long term, we're in a much better spot now.

agreed 100%

The question is, if the Steelers wanted to get rid of Haley, how would they go about doing it? After all, Dan Rooney was his biggest supporter, when they hired him. His father, Dick Haley, was the Director of Player Personnel for almost 20 years. It would not be pretty if they fired Todd Haley after one season. Would they offer him a position in the front office just to get him out of the way? Aside from that, they would have to be concerned about the risk that whoever they brought in to replace Todd Haley might not work out, either. It will be interesting to see what happens. It is likely that they’ll give him another season as Offensive Coordinator.

Saving face : Agree with your statements above.

Yeah, admitting you made a mistake is the worst thing in the world....

Unfortunately you may be right. I wonder if they are praying Haley takes the head coaching job in Arizona so they can get rid of him and save face at the same time.

Tomlin is not a good game day coach. He cannot pull the trigger and make games over and continually allows teams back in the game and allows the Steelers to lose at end game. So he needs to either get way better or be gone!

Haley sucks to high heaven he needs gone asap.

Lebeau still has it but the general game plan sucks goes back the Tomlin playing not to lose and then losing with superior players.

And what the hell is with this running back by committee when it is clear that Isaac Redman is the only quality running back on the team and he gets six carries a game>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>??????????????/ are you kidding or is our coaching plain stupid...........Dwyer cannot hit a hole or push the pile and Mendenhall is a fumble awaiting or a five yard dancing loss every third play and our passing offense is NOW PATHETIC with great receivers

Sorry guys - it is the same underachieving offense year after year. The offensive coordinators are variables - the quarterback is the constant.

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.
