  1. Ed Bouchette in the Post-Gazette quotes Todd Haley as saying what many of us were saying here last year: that the Steelers need to be able to run effectively when needed as well as pass effectively when needed. Not necessarily run more, but more effectively (especially on 3rd down and in the red zone). He also had complimentary words for Redman and the inexperienced backs behind him. He has been using a two-back set in practice with some frequency and calling more high-percentage (quicker) passes. All the things we urged Arians to do last year.

    Given all of that, the acquisition of WR Paul Cox makes sense. Cox is not a speed merchant, but he is 6’4″ and has sure hands. He may not make the roster, but he is a prototype for the kind of receiver Haley wants — someone who can consistently move the chains and catch in traffic.

    Haley has the right philosophy, and he seems to be making the right moves to get the offense back on track. Now if he can only build an O-line to make all of that happen.
