Rarely do I write outside the bounds of a strictly news-based article filled with facts, stats or interviews.  However, with the addition of Todd Haley as the new offensive coordinator for the Steelers, a lot of talk has been spreading around the sports world as to whether Haley was the best choice for that position or not.  The truth is, that remains to be seen. John Mehno of  The Altoona Mirror called Haley's hiring "unusual for (the) Steelers".  Haley, a Pittsburgh native, has a reputation across the league.  The biggest rap he's been laden with is that he has a difficult time "getting Read more [...]

Todd Haley wasted little time assuring everyone that the Steelers offense he will run will do whatever is necessary to win.

Steelers Should Embrace New Mentality

When the Pittsburgh Steelers chose not to retain offensive coordinator Bruce Arians at the end of the 2011 season, they were making a bold statement.
