The pickings are slim now. He is clearly the best of what's left. He's not an in-house hire; he brings a new set of eyes. He has the reputation of being a "prick" and if that means accountable, I like it. He might be able to light Ben's fire, a new playbook........sounds good. Who's left with more offensive experience?

I think he is not a good head coach but good coordinator. Much like Kevin Gilbride and Wade Phillips. Definitely an upgrade from Arians.

I'm hearing through tweets that Haley's interview went very good and he was offered the position. Not sure how accurate that is though.

Bring him on man! Next couple of years are gonna be exciting! Can't wait to see what we become, and can't wait to see what happens in redzone situations. Hopefully more 6's and less 3's and hopefully less getting sacked out of the 3 range.

I think he'd be good as long as his maturity isn't a factor. He made quite a fool of himself several time's throughout his career, and besides Warner, he hasn't really done anything at all productive. I think he's a good coordinator, but i'm hoping Tomlin see's that he's ready before he hires him.

I don't know much about his Xs and Os but from what I can read on his personality, it looks like he won't take sh*t from anyone.

I like Haley as the OC based on this as I think Ben needs someone to enforce some discipline on him. Ben likes people like Arians and Fitchner because he controls them and he gets to run around looking to make plays for highlight reels (and getting sacked in the process). Ben needs someone to say - "throw the g*ddamn ball!" and I think Haley will do just that.

The Steelers better fire the shot now. Haley is the best of a slim group of coaches. He's got the resume and the results of turning around offenses. Resurrected Kurt Warner's Career a little and made the Cardinals into one of the premier offenses in the league for his stint there.

Haley wasn't a great Head Coach, but has proven he's damn good coordinator who takes charge and gets the most of his personnel. Some are just better off coordinating than coaching. Haley is a hothead, but one who takes charge, takes no crap and (hopefully) will kick this Offenses' ass in gear. The Steelers need an Offensive guy who will not be Ben's ego-stroking BFF and actually spur him to do better.

Get it done, Tomlin.

Can Haley chalk up a nice screen? Haven't seen one of those in awhile, and no, i didnt mean a bubble screen.
