I coundln't be happier than I am about letting Arians "retire" (I still love that we the Rooney's made him call it that!!) and getting Todd Haley. I think that he puts us over the top in the long run and gets us back into a couple of SB's! And who cares if he does someday blow up on the sidelines??? At least you know it will be because he cares and wants the team to do better. Unlike Arians who would have only blown up if Ben didn't get his way!

It's Bruce Arians' fault!

Arians is busy playing Father Flannagan over in Indy and he's 6-3.
I figure that Haley realized that the Fire and Brimstone thing will look even sillier if he ends up with a worse record than BA so he's decided to lay low.

It is really amazing that the Colts are 6-3. If they can keep it up enough to earn a spot, great - I hope to see them. Bruce sure has found a way to get in front of the cameras lately. (And the more I think of it, the more his luck of being associated with good quarterbacks is uncanny). The more time passed that Arians was here, the more I was convinced that Ben's ability and the sheer talent and depth of the Steelers' rosters more than covered for his lack of understanding situational football, protecting the franchise QB, and playing to strengths.

It is a little odd to me how public Arians, Irsay, and all the players have rallied around his cancer. I'm not saying they don't feel close or that it isn't right - but they are really laying it on heavy in front of the cameras. The shaving of the heads is a nice gesture - but I'm getting a little tired of hearing how "special" this situation is and how much motivation this gives them.

Hey media - plenty of people live after and die of cancer - the cancer coverage is getting a little ridiculous and the locker room speeches are a little overly dramatized, and frankly - it is a little bit of exploitation on the Colts part - but hey, whatever gets asses in the seats, right? I've experienced cancer too many times and I can tell you - no healthy coach is going to predict hoisting the Super Bowl trophy because of a dream he had not even halfway through the season, and especially not with all of the cameras around him. The guy has chemo-brain, is feeling his mortality, and it is heart wrenching. This team will fall apart once they can't keep winning for the sick man.

The father Flanagan comment was hilarious - exactly what I have been thinking. Is Arians for real?

When they start a losing streak, I bet they'll go right back to Marsha Brady and Discount Double Check coverage.

Max Starks apparently thinks so

Diversity is something the Steelers were lacking in recent years under former offensive coordinator Bruce Arians. He liked bubble screens, deep passes, three tight end sets and throwing on third-and-2.

It led to an offense that put up big numbers at times but that would bog down in the red zone and short-yardage situations.

“We had tendencies with some people wanting to stay in their zones and do things they felt comfortable with more than trusting other individuals on the team,” tackle Max Starks said. “That’s more of the philosophy of the coordinator and being able to adapt and not being able to adapt.”

This.

He still has the fire, no question. Just because there "hasn't been a fight on the sidelines" or a yelling match of somesort.....which there shouldn't be anyways, doesn't mean you've "toned it down". There's been no reason.
No story here.

I am beginning to think that Mark Kaboly is just another media clown that is playing from the same playbook as Ron Cook and Skip Bayless.

They fear monger that Haley and his temper will be disruptive when he got to Pittsburgh, now that there have been no fireworks they write articles suggesting that he is cowtowing to others. He should see if TMZ has any openings.

Bruce Arians is good for a year or so to groom a young QB, not good for keeping around for a long period of time.

Bruce had success here back in 2007 as Ben had his best season yet, he didn't come close to duplicating that success since.
