According to Adam Schein of NFL.com, Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger and offensive coordinator Todd Haley tops his list as the ‘most combustible relationship’ for the 2013 season. Both me are strong willed and Haley’s reputation for burning out his players over time makes this a situation to watch. Former Steelers’ OC Bruce Arians was more laid back and gave Roethlisberger a lot of rope, but Haley who is trying to put his fingerprints of the offense in his second year could bump head with eth 2-time Super Bowl winning QB. Schein writes: ‘Head coach Mike Tomlin tried to stress positives in Year 1 of this relationship, but frustrations seemingly boiled all season and bubbled over after an overtime loss to the Dallas Cowboys in December. This was hardly a surprise. Here's what scares me this year: Pittsburgh isn't that good. The offensive line is suspect, as is the receiver position. The running backs don't scare anyone. The defense is old and in a transitional phase. Roethlisberger is everything to Pittsburgh, and I can see him trying to do too much. Haley is a hothead. So is Ben. Television cameras will be trained on these two at all times. The only question here is when -- not if -- we'll get fireworks.’
