Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was brutally honest today when he admitted that the problems with his team starts with the offense. “The most significant reason is we’re 0-2 is we’re not scoring enough points,” Tomlin said, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Nineteen points in two football games is not going to win a lot of football in this league. If you would have told me we’d score 19 points through the first two ball games I would have told you we’d have an opportunity to 0-2. We understand that and we are working hard to rectify that.” Tomlin is absolutely correct and the problem starts with offensive coordinator Todd Haley.  He’s simply not a good fit for the Steelers offense.   Need NFL Tickets?

  • I would shake things up a bit on offense, despite playing poorly there aren't many options on the offensive line. I would keep running more spread the fullback and the TE's have done nothing good this year. Felix Jones in the backfield, Brown, Sanders, Wheaton and Moye and bring Cotrey in for 5 wide. Unfortunately teams are playing straight up man with the WR's and filling the box, so if we can't pass we will not run and everyone knows it.
  • Although I agree Haley is a problem, I also believe Tomlin is also a problem, he acts like a buddy instead of the coach, you can see its a very undisciplined team, and Tomlin in my opinion isn't very good at choosing talent, although he may have won a super bowl, he done it with Cowhers team, and now that that team is pretty much gone, Tomlins talent, well there's none there, how much experience did he have before he got hired? not much, he's a silver tongued empty suit, his post game litany is repetitious, and where's the answers to the problems? apparently not with him, it all starts and ends with him, and big changes need made and quick, this is exactly how we all see it, Tomlin is taking us down the tubes but the Rooney's coddle this pretender, their experiment didn't work, and its time to move on.
  • My exact sentiments and I've been saying this all along. Tomlin won on Cowher's expertise. Let's get someone in there who knows the right formula and who has the guts to do what needs to be done. The Steeler Nation waits to be nourished! The Steeler Nation is starving from lack of spirit!
  • Also, I blame Colbert more than anyone with these insane extensions. You have to start using free agency a little more! Under Cowher they made moves in free agency such as Will Wolford, Tom Newberry, Jeff Hartings, Ray Seals, James Farrior, Kevin Greene, and the list goes on. I am not pushing the paid quite yet, but Colbert is the bigger problem.
  • Haley has to go. The team has been going down hill since he was hired. He does not have a clue as to what is going on. Only reason he got the job was because his dad was with the Steelers for many years.
  • I totally agree with paveteran 1,the 1 burger,and virgoal. Let's move on and do the right thing for "Steeler Nation"
  • What and why would a head coach lie about the departure of the offensive coordinator? What kind of head coach would not be content with going 12-4? What kind of coach would want to change the entire offensive system to put the all - pro quarterback of the team under his control? A losing and soon to be out of a job head coach. Those question puzzle me. Mike tomlin has lost the confidence of the players on this team. His arrogance and stupidity is apparent to the players and to me. Mike tomlin I do not say coach, has destroyed the very fabric of this team. It will take at least 3 to 5 years if he is fired mid-season to get this team back to greatness. By that time Ben will be able to sign with any team that needs a quarterback for big, big money.
