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.

One win and they could be relevant the pressure is on, the only question is will the pressure make diamonds or crack the pipes.
