I'm not saying that is what the Steelers should do - but I'm not sure I'd like walking into the RB mess we currently have.

How about package deal to Vikings or Seahawks. Lynch or Peterson for Wallace, Mendy, and hand pick a defender not named Lewis and 5th and 7th round pick There, I said it. I want the RB sitch to be fixed - THAT MUCH.

No "Marty Ball" No "Cowher Ball" - a leader and mainstay at RB. That's all I want
We can't trade Wallace now that he's a FA I believe. Anyhow, I wouldn't be surprised if we get one in FA or early in the draft. I don't think a RB is worth a number one on unless that someone is an Adrian Peterson like talent but that's a moot point anyhow.

yea - I was more or less being sarcastic - getting a huge name at RB is a pipe dream - there would be no reason for either of those teams to give up their RBs, especially while their teams' arrows are pointing up (both in playoffs due in large part because of them - more so in Adrian's case)

Is there anyone out there that wants to bring guts and glory back to Steelers running game? Any takerz?

I'd bring in Norv Turner. He's a more laid-back, less in-your-face kind of coordinator and knows how to use offensive talent. First things first, though. We need a legitimate WR to play with Manny and AB and, more importantly, a fucking Running Back that's worth something. It doesn't matter who our OC is if we can't grab a legitimate RB and reestablish our ground game. It's just as important for teams to respect the ground game so we can work off play-action and go down the field. Until we get a legitimate RB, who our coordinator happens to be is completely irrelevant.
If your definition of Whiz is a 'failed head coach' and that is a legitimate reason for not hiring him , how is Turner different. By looking at their most recent jobs, I'd argue Turner's failure with SD is at least as abject as Whiz at the Cards.

This is not that I think Whiz is a sensible choice, I'd be staggered if he came back here and It isn't as if the Cards have actually appointed Haley yet.

No matter who we picked up - Jesus himself - it would still be 3 OC's in 3 years. You ever see what happens to teams that change out position coaches like that?! You get Alex Smith. I know, he lost his job to a rookie, but it's still a valid point. Let Haley get his scheme implemented and then hate his guts. We will eventually anyways! Arians took us a to a couple of SB's and he was hated with a passion! This could be a moot point as haley wants to be an HC again so he will be gone sooner than later.

Jesus as OC? Guess that makes Ben Judas

EDIT: No takers? I wasn't being serious - simply making light of recent debates with my fellow forumerz

in bizarro world yesterday - the Browns interviewed Whiz - did anyone else know this? This would be so weird.

It's like the guy wants to be in Pittsburgh so he takes the leftovers, then goes for the closest city?

Good grief.

I hope he stays, but if the Cards make him the head man, then stuff happens. I think the foundation for offensive success is currently on the roster and a OC that has a balanced philosophy can make it work.

Apparently while Ben was the most vocal about his dislike of Arians' firing, he wasn't the only one:

#Bears TE Matt Spaeth on Bruce Arians: "I can tell you when Pitt got rid of him, nobody was happy in that locker room, especially Ben."
