Haley will likely add some fire to a normally quiet sideline.

I am not saying this because I'm a Steelers fan or that I am on a Steelers forum. But if there is one fan base in sports, that seem to have the same thoughts as their teams organization, it's the Steelers fan.

We sense things going wrong or not going as well as it should, and we identify it quickly and are pretty accurate. The offensive situation the last few years seems to be an issue that isn't just a problem to, we the fans, have had. The Rooney's gave it a shot, it didnt work and are now addressing it. Whether you agree or disagree with the Arians thing, you can not deny that the Rooney's did give it a chance. Unfortunately, it was just not working.

The Steelers have a franchise quarterback who come around very few times in teams existence. For the Steelers, twice in 88 years to be exact. So, rather then wasting time, let's get someone in here to fix the offense to fulfill its full potential. You have 3 stud receivers, stud TE and a very good pair of running backs with a Pro Bowl Qb. How the hell are you not scoring in the red zone?! These are common sense questions. There is no excuse for it.

I think interviewing Todd Haley shows that the Steelers are looking for the best OC out there. Haley also has ties to the Steelers with his pops. He may be a bit on the hot headed side, but maybe that's what Big Ben needs now. Someone to slap him in the face and tell him to stop holding the ball for 45 secs.

To be honest, I though our offense was more explosive last year, and the numbers back that thought. Not sure what happened to change that this year. I'm assuming it's the reason we're interviewing offensive coordinator candidates? But it surely wasn't all Bruce's fault, we went the entire year without our starting lineman in a game as a squad...I suspect with a fresh offensive mindset provided by our new coordinator, and the Return of Willie Colon, things will immediately improve.

Ben on new coach Tomlin in '07:

"I think it's great to have someone who isn't yelling at us all the time".

Looks like Benny Wenny may have a hissy fit

It's cool. He's paid plenty, he'll live.

He's tough enough to play through injuries, he should be tough enough to handle yelling.

Three things about Haley to take into consideration:

1. He uses a fullback in his ground attack. Not a hybrid fullback, an actual fullback. He used Dan Kreider in Arizona, used Leonard Pope in KC, and just last offseason went out and snagged LeRon Mcclain form the Ratbirds for the Chiefs. While he didn't have much to work with in AZ, his use of fullbacks is certainly a reason why the Chiefs have been so good on the ground.

2. He runs by committee. While Jamaal Charles certainly saw his share of work due to his immense talent, Thomas Jones and even Dexter Mccluster were never denied their share of carries. With Mendy being so erratic, I know a lot of people have been campaigning for this.

3. He knows how to get in the endzone. Rankings of Todd Haley-run or HC'd offenses in the redzone since 2007: 3, 6, 25 (first year as KC HC), and 8. KC went on to finish dead last once Haley was gone this year but they weren't as bad before his firing and he had injuries to his star offensive players at the start of the season. With the exception of 2009, when he was getting used to being a HC on a new team, that's pretty damn good, compared to what we're used to.

I will gladly take on a guy with some "attitude problems" to get those things in Pittsburgh. I mean, it's not like we're hiring him as HC or GM. How bad can he possibly be as an OC in this organization?

I will welcome someone with some attitude and passion.

One of the things that drove me crazy this year was Arians, LeBeau, and even Tomlin at times looking like walking zombies, deer-in-headlights with zero emotion. Think thats sorely missing right now.
