Eh, Todd Haley gets a mulligan from me. I think he wanted to establish the running game to take some of the pressure off Ben because it wasn't clear how Ben would perform his first game back. Besides, it's not really Haley's fault that the offense couldn't convert two 3rd-and-1's and a 4th-and-1 in the first half. If Haley deserves to be criticized, it's for taking a bit too long to adjust. At least he knows how to make adjustments, unlike his predecessor.

The reason the Steelers lost this game was because they did not control the line of scrimmage on either side of the ball. The offensive line sucked, and the defensive front seven couldn't get enough pressure on Philip Rivers despite the patchwork offensive line in front of him. And I am starting to get tired of Mike Tomlin's teams playing to the level of their competition.
