It's ridiculous to suggest he's not significantly better than he was as a rookie.


Bowe didn't take the game seriously enough to even show up to camp in shape. He had to cheat to cut weight. Under Haley, he willingly began committing to the game, training on his off-time with Fitzgerald, and hitting peak physical condition. Those things never happened before Haley got there. He was a good receiver before Haley, but his work ethic and focus improved dramatically.



And they never showed up to camp out of shape. Albert played a different brand of football and it's turned him into a top-notch left tackle. Hali lost 10-20 lbs and became a pro bowl OLB. Dorsey never showed up to camp out of shape again. Name one player that got worse because Haley asked them to cut weight? CP threw a shit fit that Haley would dare ask Albert to play at such an ungodly low weight. Guess who was wrong on that.


You don't think that has anything to do with the idea that our QB was so bad that our entire offense had to revolve around Jamaal Charles, a player who only played 1 game in 2011? Or the fact that they had to play 4 games under Tyler Palko (a QB that was only there because Pioli refused to listen to guys like Haley who were screaming for QB depth?)



We've acknowledged he had a piece of shit GM who dictated a shitty QB decision. We've acknowledged that no team can win these days without a franchise QB (let alone a good QB). I have acknowledged Haley's shortcomings. I don't know if he would become a better coach with a better GM. But the level of blame that gets put on his shoulder is ridiculous, as is the refusal to give him credit where credit is due. This place is exaggeration planet. They exaggerate how bad people they hate are, and exaggerate how great people they like are. Haley is no exception.
