Default Antonio Brown: "Arians wasn't really that type of guy"

Antonio Brown praises Todd Haley's coaching style and personality
August 2, 2012 12:41 am
Pittsburgh Post-Gazette


While there has been much concern over how new offensive coordinator Todd Haley's schemes would be handled by the Steelers and whether or not Haley and quarterback Ben Roethlisberger would get along, wide receiver Antonio Brown is effusive in his praise for Haley's style.

"It's definitely a big difference," Brown said Wednesday.

"Todd's really a cool guy -- shaking guy's hands, communicating with guys, putting in that extra time for guys, visiting with guys. Bruce [Arians] wasn't really that type of guy -- he just went about his business.

"Todd is more team-oriented and more communicative with players and trying to work together with all the men, so he's getting to know everyone," Brown said

Let's wait and see what happens. It's still early and the pressure hasn't began to mount yet.

Agreed

But anytime a player takes a shot at Arians it's all good

He is just softening them up before he rips them a new one!

its funny because its true. i have a feeling the players will appreciate and learn to love any fire and brimstone that may come from the sidelines (maybe he was just full of piss and vinegar because his team was inept and sucked).

Let Haley rip the players. Let him challenge the players.
At least he will not pacify them like BA did.

I saw no emotion whatsoever from Arians on the field. He just hid behind his play card and called a bad game. I really like coaches that show some emotion. Bottom line is the players will be held accountable for their mistakes. So they better get it right.

Which will be far easier on them than being held accountable for the OC's mistakes as they had been.

I'm just happy that we have turned the page and it looks like we will be at least incorporating a physical offense that can pound the ball if needed, but play to the strengths of Ben, Miller, Brown, Sanders, Mendenhall, Redman and maybe Rainey.

Arians ran a soft offense in Cleveland, one the could not run the ball effectively here and a spread type offense in Temple with Paul Palmer, so letting the O line impose their will on the defense was never in his DNA. Haley seems to think that has a place in the overall offensive game.
