Time to re-think those cries to fire Todd Haley?

By Gerry Dulac 1 year ago

Five games remain in the regular season and what path the Steelers take from here could determine what happens to members of the coaching staff next season, in particular their coordinators.

But, in the past month, all those cries from the fans to get rid of offensive coordinator Todd Haley have subsided. And rightfully so.

Consider this:

In the past four games, the Steelers have scored 118 points, an average of nearly 30 per game.

Ben Roethlisberger is on pace to have personal highs in passing yards and completions and would finish with 28 touchdowns. He also is tied for first in the league (with Peyton Manning and Phillip Rivers) with 47 passes of 20 yards or longer.

Wide receiver Antonio Brown leads the NFL with 80 catches and leads the AFC with 1,044 receiving yards.

Slot receiver Jerricho Cotchery has a personal-best seven touchdown catches.

And they’re doing this without Mike Wallace and with tight end Heath Miller playing at about 90 percent in his comeback from ACL surgery.
