There has been a lot of speculation over the last few days as to whether or not the Pittsburgh Steelers would break from their long-held custom of not relieving a coach of his duties in-season and remove Todd Haley as the offensive coordinator. If you read my stuff regularly, you know I’m not a Haley fan. While I wanted a change from Bruce Arians, Haley was not the guy that I would have chosen. Be that as it may, the offense has been an overwhelming failure dating back to the middle of last season. I had a good conversation with fellow Steelers’ guru @SteelerBill13 which prompted my thinking and the writing of this article so props to him. We can argue personnel and play-calling until the cows come home, but the offense currently ranks 28th and Ben Roethlisberger is hit more than a piñata at a kid’s birthday party. He also has just one victory since his return from injury last season. Let’s assume the Rooney’s make the rare decision to take Haley out as the OC. What would follow is ...

  • Well we are 0-3 and I don't think anyone is sitting around saying thank goodness at least we have Haley calling the plays. But while he hasn't been a bright spot this year, he hasn't committed a turnover all year. I personally wouldn't fire anyone until the end of the year. The reality the Steelers are 0-3 they are two games out of the division lead and play each of the division opponents twice with the exception of Cincinnati. One win and they could be relevant the pressure is on, the only question is will the pressure make diamonds or crack the pipes.
