We all know Ben likes to make the big play so you can't put it all on Arians. In this case I'd like to think of Arians as more of an enabler. I'm hoping a more iron-fisted Haley will help Ben realize how much better he can be when he takes what is given.
I think I have faith that Tomlin didn't just fall off the turnip truck and actually picked the guy he wanted and who he thought could do the job properly utilizing the talents on the team. Haley is not a worry at all.

Nice Article. I have similar concerns.
Ben and the WRs should be the focal point in the offense. Utilize the entire field.
Todd Haley should not run the ball just to appease certain section of Steelers fan base who are still gung-ho about playing Marty-ball once Steelers take the lead.
I would be really upset if the first play of the season is RUTM for 1 yard gain.
