We don't need to fire Haley, he just needs to mix this offense up a bit.

Deion Sanders takes shot at Todd Haley

September 9th, 2013
Mark Kaboly | Tribune-Review

If it wasn’t bad enough that the Steelers offense was non-existent in a 16-9 loss to Tennessee Sunday afternoon, now a Hall-of-Famer is calling out offensive coordinator Todd Haley.

NFL Network analyst and co-host of NFL Gameday highlight show Deion Sanders put the majority of Sunday’s lackluster offensive performance by the Steelers on Haley.

“I am not concerned about the Steelers because of Mike Tomlin,” Sanders said. “(However,) I am concerned about their rushing attack (and) offensive coordinator Todd Haley. It seems as if every place he goes, this happens.”

There’s no denying that the Steelers offense looked out of sync and out of ideas by the second half, but putting the blame on Haley alone isn’t fair, and isn’t necessarily a correct place to put it.

Was it Haley’s fault that Isaac Redman fumbled what could’ve been a game-changing play into the end zone in the first quarter?

Was it Haley’s fault that Emmanuel Sanders dropped a pair of key passes?

And most of all, was it Haley’s fault that the offensive line that was provided to him by Tomlin and the front office couldn’t block anybody?

Let’s face it, Haley was very limited in what he could call because of the offensive line. Break down what you want, but it is truly that simple.

You can’t call a run play if there are no holes.

You can’t call a pass play if your quarterback keeps getting hammered.

I am sure there is enough blame to go around for this loss to the Titans, but Haley is way down on that list in my eyes.

Being creative would go along way.

Do things like alter the tempo to keep their minds in the game.
Try early snaps, change the count. Put receivers in motion.
Run your best running plays, the ones where your line blocks the best. Just do it to see if they can stop it. If they do, take it outside and run off tackle or...

Throw on first down. Just come out throwing to loosen up the D for the run. Keep them guessing. Keep your own team guessing.

I liken it to an energy line in hockey. The line that sets the emotional and physical tone. Their usually stacked with hard working grinders who'll just give 'er to get 'er done.

THAT'S the attitude this Steelers offense needs. They're just not capable of executing straight up in a clinical manner. They don't have the smarts or attention to detail for that.
They need to play with fire, a sense of urgency, to fire up the crowd and lead their team.

Was it Haleys fault that Ben gave a high handoff to the RB in the redzone? Its funny how everyone blames Wiz, Arians, haley, the line and we seldom blame the quarterback. Oh by the way, we have been a low scoring team in the whole Roethlisberger era. Lastly, isnt it ironic that Brady and Manning go through new OC after new OC, new system after new system and they dont miss a beat. Why is that? Why arent there fans blaming the OC year after year?

The correct quote by Sanders was "I DONT KNOW ABOUT OFFENSIVE COORDINATOR AND BIG BEN"

When do the alibi's and excuses end?

Fire Haley!


Haley carries the stink of losing around with him like Pigpen and his cloud of dust. How stupid do you have to be to design a running offense in a passing league?

I blame the F.O. too for trying to "Teach Ben a lesson" by firing Arians

and you can blame Pouncey's injury on Haley too - that zone blocking bullshit which is just another way of calling for cheap cut block shots at opponents knees - well that concept backfired too

First time poster here.

Yesterday's game had to be the worst I think I have ever seen. And I expected it after that miserable pre-season.

When is Trayvon Tomlin ever going to take any responsibility for this terrible team? I think they have been getting progressively worse since the last Super-Bowl loss. This just isn't an acceptable product.

If Trayvon Tomlin doesn't fire Haley - I think he'll be fired himself. Right now he has a scapegoat in Haley, but that won't last long if the horrendous play continues.

Lastly, another terrible press conference after the game. I wanted to throw a brick through my idiot box. So tired of Trayvon Tomlin's antics and unprofessional demeanor.

Not sure what you're trying to get at with calling him Trayvon...

Haley is one of the worst coordinators in the league...the only problem is it may be too late to fire him! How can you just bring in a new coordinator suddenly and teach everybody the system that quick?

Seems racist to me. Sure, Tomlin is being exposed as a bum. But, there is no need to attack him for being African American.
