Okay, this is a big day for Todd Haley. If he has a good game plan, he could join the next great dynasty as it rises from the heartland of Kansas City. In your opinion, should he:

a) Center his game plan around his major star Larry Fitzgerald, even though the Steelers are obviously going to game-plan against Fitzgerald?

b) Center his game plan around a couple of other established stars like Boldin and James, even though he's got a superstar lined up outside?

c) Take the Steelers by surprise with a game plan featuring some of his less-established players like Hightower and Breaston and his tight end?

d) Completely mix it up so no individual player is getting emphasis?

This assumes he's auditioning.

I'm sure one game is going to make a TON of difference in Pioli's eyes.

If I was Haley, I'd be using Boldin more today. The Steelers are going to be doing whatever they can to stop Fitzgerald, and Boldin is a darn good receiver.

That said, it's hard to resist riding the hot hand and just seeing if Fitzgerald can take over the game.

The Steelers game plan will be to get to Warner

Warner will be dumping it over the line to Fitz and Boldin and have a big day.

Haley will get in a shouting match with Wisenhunt thus ruining his chances of becoming a Chief.

Fitz is on fire. He will surely make the most out of him. Also Boldin will want to prove himself and get his stocks up for free agency.

Nevertheless, whatever way Todd does it, if he beats the number 1 defense in the league. I will be really interested in him. So far, I think he's a 40/60 chance for success if he comes to KC.

I'm sure one game is going to make a TON of difference in Pioli's eyes.

If he's even a candidate, 3 games must have been pretty much all Pioli looked at. How else can anyone justify considering an offensive coordinator for a team with the most offensive talent in the NFL that won 9 games all year and went 1-5 against playoff teams in the regular season?

Because... the offensive coordinator doesn't run the team? He runs... the offense? Which is the 4th in the league in yards and 3rd in scoring?

And 32nd in rushing? But we can always find our own Fitz, and Bolden. It happens all the time.

Considering what they did against the #1 defense, you can't say anything bad about the offensive production.

Arizona's offense was at it's best in the 4th quarter, Tyler Thigpen doesn't agree with this happening.

Also 32nd in attempts per game. The only stat that really matters is yds/att. In which they are 31st. Not real great. The Chiefs were tied for 2nd though! It will average out.:D

Arizona has a shit line and shit RB's give them credit for having a top 5 offense without having an entire aspect of the game.

I like Todd. He did a very reasonable job today and utilized his weapons very wisely although the use of Fitz should have come earlier. But I still think if Pioli went with him, I could live with that.

Deberg_1990
02-01-2009, 08:32 PM
BTW, has anyone thought that on the 2nd Fitz TD, he should have fallen down inside the 5 yard line? Did he score too fast leaving too much time on the clock for the Steelers?

aturnis
02-01-2009, 08:32 PM
"He is the son of Dick Haley, the current Player Personnel Analyst for the Miami Dolphins and former Director of Player Personnel for the Pittsburgh Steelers and New York Jets. Todd was a ball boy for the Steelers in his youth. In January 2009 rumors circulated about Haley's potential hire as head coach of the Kansas City Chiefs."

Didn't know he had loose ties to Bill Parcells. Also his family has history with the Steelers, whom we apparently are trying to emulate.

Nah you don't do that, not against a top defense anyway especially when you're running game is shitty.

heh, Whisenhunt just admitted that after Fitz scored his first thought was there was too much time left on the clock.

You can't take a chance with a Defense that is as good as Pitt's.

DOesn't matter.
I'd bet a coach would NEVER tell a player to do that behind in the game playing the top defense in the game. It'd be about the dumbest call this side of Marty Morningwheg.

Loose? He was Parcells WR coach in Dallas. Parcells tried to bring him to Miami last year as HC.

He has Parcells and Pioli ties all the way back to the Jets days in the late 90's.

Yeah, exactly. Tomlin was 32nd in pass defense in 2006...look how well he turned out. We certainly wouldnt want a repeat of his performance.

Save for one bad decision by Warner that turned into an instant 14 point swing Haley's O beat the vaunted Pitt D. That's good enough for me. Bring on Todd Haley.

The thing that impressed me most about Haley today was the second half adjustments they made that resulted in an offensive explosion in the fourth quarter.

The fact is Haley devised a gameplan that was able to, for the most part neutralize the Steelers blitz and resulted in 370+ passing yards and over 400 yards of total offense.

Considering the Chiefs have had a head coach and coaching staff the past 3 years who couldn't make a second half adjustment if their lives depended on it... if Haley ultimately is the head coach, we've seen on the sport's biggest stage that the guy knows how to make in-game adjustments.

Before this game nobody had over 300 yards on Pittsburgh Defense all year, and the Todd Haley led offense put up over 400 yards.

It would be somewhat of a big leap from college position coach to an NFL defensive coordinator but what about Ken Norton, Jr., from USC?

So he probably knows nothing about defense.

If this had been Texas playing Texas Tech, I'd agree with you. But it wasn't. It was the freaking Pittsburgh Steelers defense. They know how to execute goal line stands.

That would have been the worst decision in the history of football.

your right.

If a field goal would have been enough to put the Cards up at that point, i say it would have been smart. But the Cards were down by 4 and needed a TD.

I don't think we're giving enough credit to Warner. I like Haley but you have to have players who can go out and execute the "adjustments". Right now, we don't. Hopefully, Pioli will fix that but Haley has had the luxury of a HOF quarterback and a freak like Fitz plus Boldin. I guess we will see.

Warner, Fitzgerald and Boldin were all in Arizona under Denny Green (before Todd Haley was the offensive coordinator) and they didn't do jack shit.

In that game, the Eagles were winning. All they needed was a first down and some kneel downs. This game, the Steelers were winning, and remember what happened the first time the Cards were in the redzone. I dont think Fitz wanted a repeat of that.
