There has been no shortage of trouble for Steelers offensive coordinator Todd Haley through two weeks of the season.
The Steelers can’t run the ball very well and they can’t score points, two things which reflect poorly on an offensive coordinator. So does having a spat on the sideline with your top receiver, something Haley is accused of doing with Antonio Brown during the loss to the Bengals on Monday night. Haley can’t fudge the numbers regarding the performance of the offense, but he does take issue with the reports of problems with Brown.
“Did not happen. There was no confrontation. That’s all I can say,” Haley said, via Ed Bouchette of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “There was no problem whatsoever between he or I.”
Haley spent more time talking about the issues with the offense than his non-issue with Brown, saying that everyone from the offensive line to the running backs has to improve their play to get the Steelers onto the winning side of things. Some of the planned changes include more zone-blocking on the offensive line and more time for Felix Jones at running back and there could be more personnel changes if those things don’t get the ball rolling.
