Sure Pioli was a failure, Cassel too, but so was Haley.
The first two points were Haley, but not fireable offenses.
Completely wrong on the last 3 points. Who cares if he was a buffoon on the sidelines? Cowher and Gruden were notorious for doing the same damn thing, an dhtose guys are considered heroes. Did he lack the people skills? Last time I checked, the players he coached got better under his watch then became complete losers when he left -- his people skills are the exact same as Tom Coughlin's. Tyler Palko was a lot more Pioli than it was Haley.
Pioli and Cassel didn't fail because of anyone but themselves. Haley was severely limited because of Pioli and Cassel. Because of that... we don't know what Haley would have done in a better situation. I think he will do well if hired in Arizona and it will only make a bigger mockery of Pioli's shit show.
