    I hope that you guys don't mind me starting this thread, and if the thread title isn't right, then please change it.

    Ricky Williams decided to call it quits again.

    Shouldn't this be changed to "Where's Peyton?"

    Necks and nerves are nothing to take lightly, especially for a 35 yr. old.

    I like the hire. Roethlisberger and the Steelers' receivers should be a good fit for his system and he does have roots in the town and the organization.

    That said, I don't understand pushing Arians out if you are going to bring in a guy who runs a similar system, unless the reports I've read are wrong and Tomlin really didn't want to keep Arians.

    oop, aren't you at all concerned that a family-run, together organization is bringing in such a flaming jackhole to call the shots on offense? Chemistry not exactly his strong suit.

    Questioning the Steelers on how to run a football team is like questioning George Clooney on his ability to talk to women.

    Oh, I know they're the standard. Haley just seems like an odd fit because they generally seem to have the attitude that people getting along works better. (As opposed to a lot of organizations who believe people staying on edge makes them sharper.)

    Haley liked to run the football in KC. That is good enough for me.

    They have had a heck of a recent run of success with assholes like Roethlisberger and Harrison on the team. Maybe they felt like they needed one on the coaching staff, too.

    Do you remember his offense in Arizona? Sure, he was smart enough to run the ball in KC because that was what the personnel dictated. Give him a quarterback like Roethlisberger and receivers like Wallace, Brown and Sanders and I don't think he's going to want to run any more than Arians did.

    Haley ran a vertical passing offense in Arizona, tried to do it in KC with worse personnel and this is what Roethlisberger wanted. Rapist complained when Arians left and now he is probably pulling some 17-year-old to celebrate.

    I dunno. Seems pretty questionable to me.
