There has always been a lot of talk about how the Steelers offense passed too often under Bruce Arians and that he had virtually abandoned the team's smash-mouth heritage. That might be accurate, but I can't blame Arians completely for that change.
In some ways, it had to come out of necessity. The Steelers didn't have success when they attempted to run the ball regularly in 2009 and 2010. By 2011 Arians had moved to a system that was built on the strengths of his players: a quick passing attack.
Now, the Steelers can return to at least a balanced system. Todd Haley will throw the ball often, but it won't be because the team cannot generate yards on the ground. The run will be able to be used regularly, and the team's backs might get a great chance to show what they can all do.
