Just as getting rid of former offensive boss Bruce Arians was a good move, bringing in offensive guru Todd Haley was a great follow-up effort by the team.
The search for a new offensive coordinator was mysterious at times, but Haley's name became a favorite once it emerged that he'd become part of the puzzle. While reaction to his hiring has been mixed among fans, overall, I can't imagine this being a bad move.
While Ben Roethlisberger contends that the offense is quite different, the actual play selection shouldn't be too far from what we've seen in recent years. Haley's offenses leaned heavily on the pass and value versatility and speed.
I think Haley, whose fiery personality will be an interesting mix for a team used to a rather dull coordinator on offense, will make the most of the team's immense talent at wide receiver and running back, something that Arians couldn't do. I also think he will find a way to ease the team's scoring issues and improve their work in the red zone, always a problem under the previous regime.
