Todd Haley isn't looking for revenge against the Kansas City Chiefs.
The former Chiefs coach - now the Pittsburgh Steelers offensive coordinator - says he's trying to treat Monday night's matchup between his former employer and his new one like just another game.
Haley was fired by the Chiefs with three weeks left in the 2011 season. He insists he's moved on and has no extra incentive to beat Kansas City. Haley joked he'll be excited if the Steelers win and depressed if they lose, just like always.
It hasn't taken long for Haley to mesh with Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger, who is on pace to set career highs in attempts, completions and touchdowns.

CHIEFS (12.5) AT STEELERS
We all know how much Todd Haley wants this one for the Steelers, and if anyone knows the vulnerabilities of the Chiefs' defense, it would be the former head coach. But the Steelers don't really need the Haley Factor as motivation to pound the Chiefs they're...
Come next Monday night, the final nail will be driven in the coffin of this miserable Chiefs season. The Steelers will certainly provide the fireworks and the explosion of Todd Haley's offense will land squarely in the middle of this historically inept team.
Somebody has finally knocked some sense into the head of Clark Hunt. Well, partially at least. After an atrocious three months of football for Romeo Crennel and his Kansas City Chiefs team, cornerback Stanford Routt was released, Crennel gave one of his jobs to Gary Gibbs, and Shaun Smith has returned to the defensive line.The announcement came on Monday, four days after a terrible...

This won't be one of Cassel's better fantasy days.
I know, I know. Who could tell the difference, right? But this is a pretty serious matter. The NFL has been trumpeting their efforts for the last couple of seasons to protect players from head injuries. The Kansas City Chiefs … Continue reading →
I had cautiously optimistic hopes preseason, as did much of the Pittsburgh Steelers fans, which were quickly replaced by frustrated chagrin after the first several games. But for the slow start, the real character of the team is beginning to shine through.
Now eight games into the 2012 season, a better picture can be formed of where the team is headed. Here are eight thoughts on...
