Todd Haley: Steelers expect to play in “that confetti game”

Baltimore Ravens Brown and Leach lie in the confetti after defeating the San Francisco 49ers in the NFL Super Bowl XLVII football game in New Orleans Reuters

Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley says he and his team expect to get to the Super Bowl. But he doesn’t want to jinx it by actually using the word “Super Bowl.”

So Haley says he, head coach Mike Tomlin and the rest of the team are just calling it the “confetti game.”

“As a team,” Haley said, “our expectation is to get to that confetti game, as Coach Tomlin likes to call it.”

Haley thinks the Steelers absolutely have a Super Bowl-quality offense.

“I’m excited. I think everybody is excited,” Haley said. “We’re going to have some young guys who will have to come in and perform, but the thing that came out of last year was we got a lot of young people some playing time, specifically on the offensive line, which is invaluable. The Kelvin Beachums and the Mike Adamses, and even David DeCastro, who wasn’t 100 percent but still got some real-time snaps – that should help them a bunch. I would expect great development up front, and I think our quarterback is as good as anybody’s. We just need to do a better job of protecting him and him of protecting himself. And we need to run the ball more efficiently, because I think we’ll be able to throw it with anybody.”

If they’re as good as Haley thinks they are, they’ll end the season celebrating in confetti.

    I like the Bengals and Ravens roster’s better than Pittsburgh’s.

    Great picture.

    Funny seeing these ratbirds acting like Lonnie Paxton. He was the one who spontainuosly did the snow angel in the ….you know, the snow. Guess they couldn’t come up with anything original.

  4. commonsensedude says: May 28, 2013 1:15 PM

    I didn’t know they were going to have confetti at their December 29th home game against the Browns.

  5. classactcalvin81 says: May 28, 2013 1:16 PM

    Call it whatever u want they will still b watching it from home just like my team!

  6. sixburghsteelers says: May 28, 2013 1:17 PM

    Haley needs to shut his mouth….

  7. Iknoweverything says: May 28, 2013 1:19 PM

    The Steelers will not sniff the confetti game with Haley as a coach. Heck they will not sniff the big game again for a decade. They are tooooo old and slow. If u cant beat Touchdown Tebow then you are bad. I guess Haley is as delusional as the obnoxious fanbase

  8. Nofoolnodrool says: May 28, 2013 1:19 PM

    Is this news? The steelers should always think that way, but whether its justified is the big question. I would rather they talk about that to themselves.

  9. Joemontanaflacco says: May 28, 2013 1:20 PM

    OMG! Haley should do standup. It’ll supplement his income when he finds himself coaching high school ball in 2014.

  10. cbass59 says: May 28, 2013 1:23 PM

    Winning it all should be every coach’s goal except for Cleveland. They would throw a parade for 9 wins and a playoff berth.

  11. bigdawg24 says: May 28, 2013 1:23 PM

    As a Chiefs fan – I know first-hand how much damage Todd Haley can do.

    As mush as I hate to say it – I am afraid the Broncos are the team to beat.

  12. myspaceyourface says: May 28, 2013 1:24 PM

    Ravens* got theirs in a gift box from the NFL.

  13. steelbydesign says: May 28, 2013 1:25 PM

    People can continue to count out the Steelers, but they typically do well in season they’re not expected to.

    The last 3 times they’ve finished 3rd in the division, they bounced back to win the division the following year.

    In 2003 they went 6-10, and finished 15-1 the following year.

    In 2006 they went 8-8 and finished 10-6 the following year.

    In 2009 they went 9-7 and finished 12-4 the following year.

  14. raiderlyfe510 says: May 28, 2013 1:26 PM

    Well at the end of the season on “Black Monday” I can see Haley’s contract getting ripped to confetti if Big Ben gets injured again. The man can’t develop QBs. Although Gradkowski’s a baller/gamer/winner. So the Steelers might be alright.

  15. faninvirginia says: May 28, 2013 1:27 PM

    I am sure he will get to the game. Don’t most coaches get a ticket?

  16. afcdomination says: May 28, 2013 1:27 PM

    Iknoweverything-“The Steelers will not sniff the confetti game with Haley as a coach.”

    so the cardinals were just such a power house with haley as a head coach that the steelers simply cannot compare?

  17. ngatasteelersfan says: May 28, 2013 1:28 PM

    We just need to do a better job of protecting him and him of protecting himself. And we need to run the ball more efficiently, because I think we’ll be able to throw it with anybody…

    Confetti Game for Sure!

  18. occamssabre says: May 28, 2013 1:28 PM

    Whats Todd Haley gonna do about Sizzle and Doom this year?

  19. afcdomination says: May 28, 2013 1:28 PM

    oh right, same position, OC, Haley found a way to do it before-

  20. jjackwagon says: May 28, 2013 1:31 PM

    But this year they have Haley and Ben is starting to show the effects of the beatings he has taken over the years. SO unless they change QBs and OCs they won’t bounce back.

  21. golfongrass311 says: May 28, 2013 1:31 PM

    Sorry not Confetti this year Losers

  22. ottomanismydog says: May 28, 2013 1:33 PM

    This is and should be to goal and expectation of every single professional football team.

  23. swagger52 says: May 28, 2013 1:40 PM

    Yes..The Ravens and this generation of players will be forever known as the genesis for how “Confetti” game was coined meaning winning the Super Bowl. This is just like Tom Brady and the beginning of his “confetti” dynasty will always be associated with the Tuck Rule and Spygate.

  24. Joemontanaflacco says: May 28, 2013 1:43 PM

    C’mon, steelbydesign. If you’re going to cherry pick stats, please mention that it took the Steelers 40 years to win their first championship and 14 years to sneak into a playoff game (which they lost). So, that’s a lot of years when the Steelers weren’t expected to do well and those expectations were fully met.

  25. swagger52 says: May 28, 2013 1:44 PM

    Let me use Confetti in a sentence to give a better context for its meaning…

    Confetti…
    The Steelers are way to old to be playing in a confetti game, like the one played by the Super Bowl Champ Baltimore Ravens, when the term was first coined

  26. stainlessstill says: May 28, 2013 1:45 PM

    Click, click, RELOAD. A fix, fix here and a fix fix there. Watch out for Pittsburgh in 2013. They’re pretty pissed off.

  27. myspaceyourface says: May 28, 2013 1:48 PM

    We won’t have Charlie Batch, how ever will we beat the Ravens.

  28. swagger52 says: May 28, 2013 1:49 PM

    The “Confetti” game was followed by a 200,000 parade in downtown Baltimore. No wonder all the free agents want to play for Baltimore.

    Baltimore plays in the “Confetti” games, the Patriots play in just the “Bull Shetti” games.

  29. 21stnprime says: May 28, 2013 1:51 PM

    Haley is the only coach to make Kurt Warner cuss.. he was never the head coach of arizona, got his play calling duties stripped during their super bowl year. and he jinxed them on the steelers last gw drive just like he just jinxed the steelers now by saying that

  30. patriots123456 says: May 28, 2013 1:51 PM

    No problem, just put Patriots Uniforms on and you’ll be in it.

  31. swagger52 says: May 28, 2013 1:54 PM

    I had an admission..

    I love tweaking Pittsburgh fans…However, I do respect that Ben Rothlesberger took a broken nose without whining and played with a broken ankle. I can at least appreciate that as Steeler football. Tom Brady hiking his skirt up as he runs around in the pocket, then popping up to complain about the reffing…I have no respect for that or him or the Patriots.

  32. spideysdog says: May 28, 2013 1:55 PM

    yeah, ok. he has a slightly better chance than his Chiefs teams. slightly.

  33. swagger52 says: May 28, 2013 1:57 PM

    Sizzle and Doom = Confetti game Two-peat
    Fizzle and Loom = Steelers and Bengals

  34. alchemistcirca1979 says: May 28, 2013 2:03 PM

    Its starting to get old calling the Steelers old. 5 starters over the age of 30, and that’s including the QB who should be entering his prime.

  35. stainlessstill says: May 28, 2013 2:06 PM

    C’mon, steelbydesign.

So, that’s a lot of years when the Steelers weren’t expected to do well and those expectations were fully met.

    ——————————-

    Pretty amazing, isn’t it? For a team that started out with nothing and barely had enough players to field football teams during tough times in a faltering financial city, they held together through the tough times by the same ownership and family who built the league as you know it from the BONE and was a building block to forming the league you oh-so-love today. The Steelers have a ton to do with the success’s of today’s NFL and did it all within 3 head coach’s within that success.

    Baltimore did absolutley nothing to stabilize the league. They took Cleveland’s team away from them and was inserted as a red-headed stepchild. The Steelers are one of the leagues marquee franchises. The Ravens are just a competitive football team that’s only here to give marquee franchise’s like the Steelers a rival.

    Cheers!

    Who doesn’t love Purple Confetti.

    Perhaps the Steeler fans, can photoshop their bumblebee prisoner uniforms and meticulously turn each purple confetti to yellow in that picture. Not going to the playoffs, the Steeler fans having nothing but time on their hands to do creative stuff like that. Nothing but time…

  40. jakescott13 says: May 28, 2013 2:24 PM

    Steelers have gotten consistently worse every year since they won the super bowl in 2008-2009 season…no major improvements since last year. Same coaches, older players. Good luck. I don’t see it.

    …. but as usual only score points with the bottom 10 in the league.

    How much longer will LeBeau coach? One year? Two years? The LeBeau window is closing fast and the Steelers don’t have a quarterback who can get the #1 defense in the entire NFL into the playoffs. That’s a real shame.

    Once LeBeau retires the Steelers are going to fall down an elevator shaft and Tomlin and Roethlisberger not be able to do anything about it.

  43. ravensdominate says: May 28, 2013 2:35 PM

    Stainless still, yeah… Whatever helps you sleep at night… I like how you left out the part where Indy stole the colts from Baltimore but they’re not a “redheaded stepchild”? The Ravens are World Champs for the second time since their inception in 96′. What you are seeing unfold is the greatest franchise in nfl history. The Ravens are on pace to make everyone forget about the steelers rusty rings.

    As a premier steeler basher even you should know Haley has to project that image or he won’t have a job. So the additional bashing is overkill…we got it you hate Ben and the steelers. Move on to the next great accomplishment in your storied life.

    So man uninformed people.

    Im not going to waste my time explaining Keith Butler, Tomlins draft picks which have been coveted by other teams, the cap relief that comes next offseason, Bens stats before his injury last year, the fact that a total of 6 starters are over 30, the terrible quality of the Ravens 2012 regular season play, or anything else with substance because it goes in one ear and right out the other of people claiming the Steelers are done.

  50. crownofthehelmet says: May 28, 2013 3:27 PM

    @bowdowntothebengals, you have the perfect screen name. Though I would replace “bow” with “stoop”, just to be technically accurate.

  51. steelers4385 says: May 28, 2013 3:39 PM

    Why does everyone keep saying old and slow? You morons dont watch football i take? Pretty sure were have more young than old starting on both sides now. And untill ben got hurt last year we had the most effecient 3rd down offense in nfl and ben had the highest qb rating. Even with the old and slow last year we still had the number one pass defense in NFL with one of the worst pass rush defense. So my assumption is we will be just fine. Stop being a follower and do your homework before you talk trash. It makes you look stupid and have no class.

  52. thefox61 says: May 28, 2013 3:44 PM

    Yeah, they are handing out bags of to confetti to all 16 fans that attended the final home game Dec. 29 vs. Clevland… Ha Ha!!!

  53. ziggy26 says: May 28, 2013 3:46 PM

    The Steelers are no longer an old team. They only have five players over 30. Roethlisberger, at 31, is by far the oldest offensive starter.

    The only place they are old is in the secondary, with Polamalu, Clark and Taylor over 30. However, their defense was first against the pass in 2012.

    Saying they are an old team is just flat-out inaccurate. After the final cuts are made at the end of training camp, I’m willing to bet they will be one of the 10 youngest teams in the league.

  54. steelerofthedraft says: May 28, 2013 3:52 PM

    I know people will always hate the steelers that’s never going to change , as a steeler fan I have come to expect this and welcome it , this sort of jealousy is awesome , and just shows how much people want their teams to be like the pittsburgh steelers. The steelers are younger and more physical and healthier than they’ve been since 06 , people can keep counting the steelers out but know deep down that pittsburgh is not going away Anytime soon , face the facts people.

    Did Haley say this in public or does he think his phones are bugged again.

    Mr Informed, the steelers are still up against it with the cap next yr. They have about 120 mil committed to their top 51 players, will have virtually no rollover money, have to pay next yrs rookies and are gonna still carry dead money, incl over 4 mil for Colon. Who they gonna relese or restructure next yr?

    —————————

    Last season was a warm-up season givin’ the change of offensive philosophy. All great teams re-load. The Steelers went through their reload phase at the end of 2011 (The Ravens are going to crash and burn with Bert Flacco now as a leader LMAO!)

    With a now healthy team and new zone offensive scheme to pound teams with, order WILL be restored in the NFL in 2013. The team that lost to Tim Tebow also made it to 3 Super Bowls in a 5 year span and beaten the “Johnny-come-lately” Super Bowl champions in their house with nothing but 2nd and 3rd stringers. As I said, the loss to Tebow was the start of transition. 2013 marks the time where the Steelers make their usual run to the ‘ship after a sub-par season and punk each team one by one for #7.

    Anybody who claims Ben Roethlisberger is a has-been clearly needs to check themselves into the nearest hospital for mental issues. The dude is just entering his prime and will win multiple more championships. No doubt about it.

    No boss… pretty sure not a soul in Baltimore is jealous of the team in Pitt. Actually we’ve grown tired of them. Which is why I, and most Ravens fans, consider the Pats our actual rival now. We play them every year, they are always last man standing with us in the AFC, and we’ve developed internal, mutual (competitive) hatred. Steelers? You may have close games with us in the regular season but with their recently inability to make the post season (or get out of the 1st round), there’s no shot at possibly facing them in the post season…Those guys are a thing of the past, we’re handing you back to Cleveland. Enjoy your new rivals for cellar dweller status!

    ————————————-

    The only delusional infested rats that pile up in these Steelers sections are ones such as yourself. It’s simple. The Steelers haven’t had back to back seasons missing the playoffs since 1999-2000. They’ve been to 5 AFC Titles since 2001, 3 Super Bowls and won 2 trophies to lead the leauge in Lombardi’s. Delusional? NO. REALITY. The reality is, you’ll see the Steelers win 4 more Super Bowls before your teams wins another. It’s simple logistics and the Steelers will be a Super Bowl contender in 2013.

    Cheers!

    Confetti game? Does this mean local high schools should be cautious that Big Ben may show up for their homecoming game?

    I know, it’s tired, but it was too easy and I couldn’t help myself… (ironically that’s likely to be Ben’s logic at said homecoming game.)

    Going to be another year of Big Ben and the Steelers watching that “confetti” game from home. Sure, The Steelers should be given credit for their 6 Super Bowls, but their winning days are over. The Steelers have already begun dissolving into a insignificant team.

  69. Joemontanaflacco says: May 28, 2013 5:02 PM

    Hey! In Pittsburgh, the “Confetti game” is for real. It’s a game in which the Steelers shread their contracts, then dump them on Tomlin, Haley, and Lebeau’s heads as they leave to go sign with teams that actually have a shot at making the playoffs. This year it happened with Wallace, Starks and Harrison.

    So funny then that over a million people came out for each of the Pats “bull shetti” wins for their parade and all that pathetic Baltimore could manage was 200k.

    Haley you will not be a part of any “confetti game” as a member of the Steelers staff. Their days of being legit playoff contenders are long over. It’s pretty obvious that Pitts. fans are so blinded by their loyalty, that they can’t see Pig Ben is no longer a top tier Qb, who can lead his team. to the “confetti game”. It will be a few years, but at least you can live in the past and drool over the 6 Lombardis collecting dust in the case. You had a good run!!

  72. steelcurtainn says: May 28, 2013 5:19 PM

    The Ravens consider the Pats there rival. Really, Thats a good laugh. Maybe last year. There is no chance in heck the pats and ravens meet for the afc championship this year. None. The steelers odds are way better. The ravens are second fiddle to the steelers whether any raven fan wants to admit it because the steelers have owned them in the playoffs(Plain and simple). Doesn’t matter that they won this year.

  73. navyeoddavee9 says: May 28, 2013 5:25 PM

    Steelers odds are better than the Ravens? Not according to Vegas, and those guys aren’t dumb. Both are midrange shots. I know everyone wants to vie to be the Pats rival, but this yr it’s Denver. The two most ridiculous fan bases in the league will have to fight it out for least mediocre, best rebuilding job or least cap problems.

The two most ridiculous fan bases in the league will have to fight it out for least mediocre, best rebuilding job or least cap problems.

    You are full of it…no one cares about the Pats but people like you. The pats are done …lipstick on a pig.

    Pats are co-favs to win the Super Bowl… again. Somebody cares. Keep your lipstick(or your pig) for yourself.

    Haley doesn’t need to say things like this. A SB is always expected in Pit, every year. Unlike the city where I live, Tampa, where just reaching the playoffs is all fans ask for. No, in Pit, like or not haters, they play for championships.

    So funny then that over a million people came out for each of the Pats “bull shetti” wins for their parade and all that pathetic Baltimore could manage was 200k.

    All teams should enter the season expecting to go all the way. Otherwise, why bother playing. I think the Steelers prospects going forward look fine.

    “swagger52 says:

    The “Confetti” game was followed by a 200,000 parade in downtown Baltimore. No wonder all the free agents want to play for Baltimore.

    Baltimore plays in the “Confetti” games, the Patriots play in just the “Bull Shetti” games.”

    Superbowl odds before the season in 2012? There were eight teams ranked ahead of the Ravens. Odds today? Eight teams ahead of the Ravens. Both years, Steelers ranked behind the Ravens. Destiny is on our side!

    Btw, NFL network ranked the 20 best games. Number 16? Cowboys whipping the Steelers butts, handing the Ravens a playoff spot. Sweeeeeet.

    Ah but in Baltimore they all look like her with a pork chop tied to her neck so raven fans will find her attractive.

    The Steelers will not sniff the confetti game with Haley as a coach. Heck they will not sniff the big game again for a decade. They are tooooo old and slow. If u cant beat Touchdown Tebow then you are bad. I guess Haley is as delusional as the obnoxious fanbase

    ………………………………..
    Actually this team isnt that old or slow anymore. And the Tebow game is a old news. This is a new day. This team will compete this year.

    i guess when all else fails just make fun of the city. whats next, mother jokes. the funny thing is mr nofool preaches class. guess its just do as i say not as i fo

    “Pretty amazing, isn’t it? For a team that started out with nothing and barely had enough players to field football teams during tough times in a faltering financial city, they held together through the tough times by the same ownership and family who built the league as you know it from the BONE and was a building block to forming the league you oh-so-love today. The Steelers have a ton to do with the success’s of today’s NFL and did it all within 3 head coach’s within that success.”

    This is why people hate the Steelers. Fans like you think they walk on water. Entitled and arrogant

    LMMFAOO! did he say what were seeing from the Ratbirds is unfolding to be the best NFL franchise in history? And y’all call Steeler fans Delusional? Don’t know how he came to that conclusion

    Oh scoobie when I do it it’s wrong but when you or your raven buddies do its ok….got it raven rules. If you look a raven fan made the crack about Ms Boyle. As you are prone to you say something stupid you will get it thrown back at you.

    Scoobies05,
    It only takes is a few well placed zingers about the Steelers’ losing season to turn Nofool and his cronies into a bunch of common slammers. God help you if you allude to one of Roethlisbooger’s pick sixes (and there are plenty). Nofool and the Gang will come at you with all kinds of perverted insults (worship at the jock of [insert Ravens’ player name]) or blame everything but the holocaust on Ray Lewis. It’s all meant to intimidate rival fans so these boards will return to the exclusive domain of Steelers fans — which is what they used to be until the rest of us started fighting back.

  93. jtbsteeler says: May 29, 2013 10:00 AM

    The Ravens are the old Browns. They aren’t an expansion franchise. YOu left Cleveland and went to Baltimore with a FULL roster.

    The Ravens are the old Browns. So your history didn’t start once you arrived in Bmore. Belichek was your coach and the Steelers still owned you bums. YOu’re the Browns.

  94. quickdraw85 says: May 29, 2013 10:18 AM

    “Touchdown Tebow” only won that game because the best member of our secondary couldn’t medically play in the game. One lucky play. We will see who’s laughing come lucky number 7. GO PITTSBURGH!!!

    I am sure your post will past the requirements for writing fiction and all of us on this thread are eagerly waiting your attempt at factual compositions. If are going to post comments that you mean to annoy people how can you complain when receiving like in return….I got it only adults get that concept….sorry didn’t mean to put the cart before the as$. Have a great day.

  96. steelerben says: May 29, 2013 2:50 PM

    Why is it that every post about the Ravens or the Steelers degenerates into the same six guys arguing about who the greatest team of all time is based only upon their winning seasons and what they think might happen in the future?

    It is getting old guys.

    Baltimore has a well coached team with a good amount of talent. As does Pittsburgh. As does Cincinnati. Even Cleveland is looking good this season. Until they play the games you don’t know who is going to do what.

    Except the Jets. Everyone knows they’re gonna suck.

  97. scoobies05 says: May 30, 2013 3:01 PM

    so jb…if the ravens are the browns then who are the browns?

    “Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley says he and his team expect to get to the ‘confetti game’.”

    I’m so proud of them boys. The annual ‘Bottoms vs. Tops’ game on Gay Pride Day could sure use some ringers.
