New Chief Steve Breaston: “Coach Haley’s not always a butthole”

AP

Shortly after Steve Breaston agreed to terms with the Chiefs on a five-year contract that reunited him with Kansas City head coach Todd Haley, Breaston gave a radio interview in which he was asked about his relationship with Haley.

Breaston’s short description of what kind of guy Haley is may set the standard for damning with faint praise.

Coach Haley’s not always a butthole,” Breaston said on 810 Sports Radio, via ArrowheadAddict.com.

Haley was the Cardinals’ offensive coordinator during Breaston’s first two NFL seasons, and Breaston had by far his best statistical year in 2008, catching 77 passes for 1,006 yards in Haley’s offense. So Breaston clearly knows he can work well with Haley.

And if Haley were really a complete butthole, Breaston never would have agreed to play for him again. So maybe he’s only 90 percent butthole.

  1. This “butthole” wins games.

    Look out AFC, the Chiefs have more passing weapons to add to their #1 rushing attack.

    Bring on the killer B’s!

  2. You really have to grade these sort of things on a sliding scale with likes of Tom Cable, Brad Childress & Eric Mangini having recently occupying head coaching positions in the NFL. And, of course, Rex Ryan sets the “toe-bending” curve.

  3. Herm Edwards was a “nice guy” and look how many games we won under him….I’m all for Haley’s approach personally. We made the playoffs, were a well conditioned team, and got more production out of players like Dwayne Bowe and Derrick Johnson than Herm Edwards could even dream of. Glad to have you on board Steve! GO CHIEFS!

  4. When I read it, for some reason I imagined Breaston saying it with a Cartman voice.. 🙂

  5. Ha! Butthole percentages should now be part of any new contract for a player or coach. Just simplifies things……..

  6. Great first day on the job (i guess he wasnt a Public Relations major)
    The imagery is horrifying

    Quote of the year so far

  7. “Matt Cassel is not exactly Kurt Warner.”

    Sure, but at least he’s not Derek Anderson, John Skelton, or Max Hall.

    Kevin Kolb is not exactly Kurt Warner either.

  8. in the interview it wasnt quite like this..
    he stated haley has a soft side that wont let you slack, but can be tough when he has to

    Or maybe he was… it’s not exactly the hardest subject.

    New Killer B’s: Bowe, Baldwin, Breaston, and Butthole

    ——————————————-

    I fixed it for you.

  11. what half-assed reporting…

    to fully quote the article:

    “The quote came when the hosts were asking Breaston about Haley’s..err..less than pleasant manner when dealing with players. Breaston actually praised Haley a lot and credited the coach for helping him develop as a receiver.

    “Coach Haley never lets you take a day off,” Breaston said.”

  12. Why do as fans really care if Haley’s a butthole or not.

    Looking back on it. The biggest a-hole bosses, coaches, and teachers all got the most out of me.

  13. Good coaches are always 90% buttholes; that’s how they get players to do what they want. I like that Steve Breaston says what he means, both in interviews and via his lockout video. I prefer honesty to the same canned PR responses most players give.
