Default Rooney wants old Steelers offense

Part of the reason Arians was not retained is because Art II wants to get back to old Steeler football, at least to a degree. Expect a fullback at Heinz Field in 2012.

He's not the only one who wants to get back to real Steelers football. Enough of the pass cr*p offense.

Good. I realize it's become a passing game but you still need the run and we have guys that can run the ball. Arians biggest fault was not seeing that you can win the run too.

I don't give a shit what kind of offense it is as long as it can get more TDs then it did this year. Field Goals don't cut it.

I hope I never see a bubble screen from a Steeler WR for at least a few years.

i think we'll try and utilize the running game better......but i think we'll be passing more (at least just as much) but with better spreads, playcalls, and routes.

I don't wanna go back to "old" Steelers football, but I want to be balanced.

I would like to move in that direction but ultimately we still need to pass at least 50% of the time. Play calling was the main reason the passing game was mediocre. With better play calling and the O line hopefully making some improvement the passing game will be more efficient which will also help taking some attention off the run. Moving towards the old style while becoming the great passing team we are capable of being would make up for any problems the defense MIGHT have during the changes to come.

They need consistency and balance on offense. Arian was terrible at managing games consistently.

Doesn't matter to me if we're balanced or not. The offense is paid to put points on the board and it didn't get the job done under Arians.
