If you go by what Pittsburgh Steelers’ owner Art Rooney, Jr said in his post-2011 season comments, the need for a new offensive coordinator was to help Ben Roethlisberger ‘tweak’ his game, get better in the red zone and return the team to a more solid running attack. Exit Bruce Arians and enter Todd Haley. Now at six games into the 2012 season, the offense is averaging about 23 points points per game which is up by about three points from last year. I would go so far as to say that Ben Roethlisberger has more than tweaked his game to fit Haley’s style and is none the worse for it. He has been sacked less, has a higher completion percentage and has been absolute money on third downs. Yet even Ben complains a bit about the nature of the ‘dink and dunk’ offense despite having many plays over 20 yards or more. Death by a thousand cuts seems to work against our defense so why can’t we employ it in our offense? This week, the Steelers return home where they will play three out of their next four.
