    New Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley is expected to implement a run-first offense in Pittsburgh
    No one other than the biggest tin-foil-hat-wearing-message-board-posters among us truly believe that this is the case. Haley's offenses have historically taken advantage the talent on the roster (passing in Arizona, rushing in K.C.) and our passing offense has a 2-time SB winning QB, 4 talented wideouts, and an underutilized TE, while our rushing game has one guy who has been a solid complementary #2 RB in this league, and 4 other guys who have done little or nothing in the league. Hmmm...which would you emphasize? Haley will strive for balance, but will ultimately play to his strengths.

    Yep. Art II will tell Haley to call plays that score points.

    They were 12th in scoring in 2009 and his QB threw for 26 TD passes in 15 games.

    Art II made Arians commit to the run.

    Redman always moves the pile and gets yards after contact. I want to see him run over ray-ray this year, Bus-Urlacher style.
    PLEASE DO NOT FEED THE TROLL

    Redman does move the pile but there have been times where he's been stuffed on short yardage also. Hopefully Haley will use more unpredictable sets that don't tip their plays off.

    If Arians had committed to running more effectively, he would still be here...

    No he wouldn't. Mendenhal was effective in 2009, and 2010 and fans (and ownership) weren't satisfied.

    Injuries destroyed their OL in 2011 and the Steelers as a team still had their highest YPC in TEN SEASONS.

    Just remember, Haley doesn't get a free pass because of injuries because of who his Daddy is.

    He gets graded the same way Arians does.

    I agree, let's see if Haley's offense this season can be higher ranked than 21st in the NFL in scoring.

    And hopefully they'll be better than 30th in starting field position because the defense couldn't create turnovers like last season.

    You guys look at things like fantasy owners.

    Have to start looking at the CONTEXT of games.
