    Haley

    Just have to say that I love what we are seeing in the new offense. This guy has given plays that take a lot of the pressure off of the line and Ben, brought Miller back into the receiving ranks, put some wrinkle plays in, found that we have an underneath game, put running back into the crosshairs of the opposing defenses, all while letting Ben be Ben.

    Really glad that we got him.

    Agree. He is exactly what we needed. It shows that change needs to occur periodically to take you to the next level.

    Need a similar change on the other side of the ball.
    Playing Fantasy Football does not qualify you to be the in the front office or on the coaching staff of the Pittsburgh Steelers. They are professionals and you are not!

    Disagree completely.

    An OC change was needed because quite frankly BA was not a good coordinator and the offensive development was completely stymied under his watch. It wasn't a case of needing a change for change sake. BA's inability to make in-game adjustments was notorious. He relied on Ben's talent to drive the offense, rather than building gameplans that made sense for the opponent. Why did BA continue to let Ben throw the long ball when we all have been screaming that dump-offs are available on almost every play?
    I get the sense that when the O struggles this season, Haley at least as some ideas on plays to get things moving again. Seems under BA, if Ben had no magic that day, the Steelers were sunk. While the has struggled to put points on the board, you can't say that they have been completely snuffed in any games this season.

    Only thing I don't like is we put 20 up on the board in the first half....7 in the second. We need to start putting our foot on the throat of opponents or one will come back to haunt us.

    Three already have come back to haunt us.

    Agreed. We have already seen it happen this year. It's like back in the Cowher days of "build a lead and then take the air out."

    We had this amazing "prevent offense" back then.

    As for the second half losing stuff, some of it has to fall on the defense. (enter Ovido in 3, 2, 1, ....)

    I don't agree with this. Why can't it fall on the offense to keep scoring? ALWAYS has to fall on the defense for most Steelers fans even though that unit carried this team for the last decade. Now that ALL the rules favor the offense, then the offense can keep scoring instead of putting 20 up on a team in a half then turtling up.

    Even so, the Steelers outscored the Redskins in the 2nd half...

    I don't think that the new offense turtles up...I just think that they haven't executed as well in the 2nd half...
