Todd Haley problem is he really thinks that coaches win games not players when he realizes he doesn't win games than he will be fine

Roddy White from the Falcons? Wtf? How are we in the heads of the Falcons to the point that they are watching and worrying about our preseason games? We're not even in the same Conference. Doesn't really make sense...can't imagine what he's even thinking :noidea:

He is a WR on a team that hasn't won a playoff game since 2004 and he was a proud member of the Atlanta offense that got shutout in last years playoff loss to the Giants.

Roddy White has some advice for Todd Haley

Cross Roddy White off the list of players who could be joining the Pittsburgh Steelers in the near future.

White, while watching Sunday nightís Colts-Steelers game on NBC, offered unsolicited criticism of and advice for Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

ďTodd Haley problem is he really thinks that coaches win games not players when he realizes he doesnít win games than he will be fine,Ē White said via Twitter.

White is accurate; only the players can deliver victory. But itís the job of the coaches to get the players ready to play.

Maybe the deeper point is that, instead of forcing an offensive system onto a team regardless of personnel, the coach should find ways to maximize the talents of the players he has. Thatís what Steelers coach Mike Tomlin did when he came to Pittsburgh, sticking with the 3-4 despite being an expert in the 4-3.

The fact, however, that Tomlin didnít scuttle the zone-blitzing scheme in 2007 shows that the decision to go with a new offense came not from Haley but from whoever hired him. Haley was brought in to bring his offense, and thatís what heís doing.

Maybe the deeper point is that White watched the stream of clips from last nightís broadcast showing Haley getting into verbal altercations with the likes of Terrell Owens, Anquan Boldin, and Matt Cassell, and White simply concluded that Haley seems like a not-so-nice guy.

And that leads back to the Sean Payton profile on Sundayís Outside The Lines. Coaching football at the highest level either attracts or creates guys who, all things considered, can act like big jerks.

Thatís not an affliction that can be cured simply by realizing that the players win the games. But thatís probably the thing that prompted White to speak out via what the kids call tweeting out.
Not sure where White is coming from exactly. Did he watch the highlights NBC showed of Haley screaming at players? That's old news, Roddy. Does he think Haley tries to pound square pegs into round holes? Hey Roddy, look at the 2008 Cardinals and the 2009-2011 Chiefs - very different offenses.

Hey don't worry about it Roddy. Worry more about Drew Brees breaking more offensive records against your team's defense.

Roddy should worry more about why his own team chokes in the playoffs and less about a team and coach that has NOTHING to do with him.
