Because the average pay for a NFL OC exceeds unemployment compensation and fired HCs usually need to do rehab as a coordiantor before their next gig as a HC?

I'm sorry, but I don't think Whisenhunt was much of an offensive coordinator. I was glad to see him go. He ran a lot of cockeyed, trick plays, and his play calling, in general, was not that good. Don't forget, Todd Hailey came up as an OC under Whisenhunt in Arizona.

Are you Nuts? Whisenhunt over Tomlin? You obviuosly do not follow the team closely; Big Ben had even more of a problem with Whisenhunt than he currently does with Haley. Whisenhunt was not the problem though, Big Ben was.

I loved those gadget plays. One of those gadget plays was the pass from ARE to Ward in SB XL. ARE was the Steelers best qb that game and if he hadn't been I don't think the Steelers win that game.

At least they weren't pissing their pants because they felt they scored too quickly...

I don't think the Steelers did very well with ball control this season. Teams that usually control the ball/clock can efficiently run the football. The Steelers were unable to consistently run the ball this year. I would estimate between 4-6 games they might have had 100 yards rushing. But what is that, 1/4 to 1/3 of the season? Not good enough for a team to put up points.

I thought the purpose of Haley's offense was to score. The Steelers were to pass the ball more, throw deep down the field, and not rely on running the ball as much as in the past. Did I miss something?

No, the offense's job was to possess the ball and protect the defense. That was clearly evident in the Denver game with the run, run, pass play calling. That's what Artie wanted from the team, and it's exactly what he got. The Steelers don't want to be an offensive team, they want to be a defensive team.

The Steelers ran 4 plays per game fewer than the Broncos for the year and produced 10 points a game less.

How are the Broncos able to put up 30 ppg vs 21 ppg with only 4 more plays? Oh that's right... I forgot... the Broncos OC is so much better.

Right - they don't dumb down their QB and worry about ball-control for the majority of the game. They actually let Manning win the game early on for them. Not hard to understand for anyone with an IQ in double-digits.
