Mike Tomlin: We’re 0-2 because of our offense

Steelers head coach Mike Tomlin was brutally honest today when he admitted that the problems with his team starts with the offense.

“The most significant reason is we’re 0-2 is we’re not scoring enough points,” Tomlin said, per the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Nineteen points in two football games is not going to win a lot of football in this league. If you would have told me we’d score 19 points through the first two ball games I would have told you we’d have an opportunity to 0-2. We understand that and we are working hard to rectify that.”

Tomlin is absolutely correct and the problem starts with offensive coordinator Todd Haley.  He’s simply not a good fit for the Steelers offense.

    Your 0-2 because of your idiotic OC. He’s not who you think he is – He was the problem in KC and now he’s the problem in the “Burgh”.

    FIRE HIM and the team will start winning!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Well Tomlin do what you must, fire him or at the very least give him a 1 game chance. BTW this o-line coach isn’t what was advertised either, both have done a garbage job. Or is it Colbert fault and they are working with garbage, It very well may be both.

    hey anonymous idiot he’s won 1 super bowl and lost another. the problem is the O.C end of story. Haley sucked in Kansas City and he sucks in Pittsburgh. You got a proven loser trying to coach proven winners. Not a good fit.

    I agree Gary, time to look for a new coach. This team has dropped off the last 3 years under Tomlin. Lebeau has been the only positive.

    The problem is that piece of crap of a quarterback we have, Big Ben leads the NFL in the most sacks, he can not think on his feet,he would rather take a sack then try and make a yard or two. And the offense couch needs to be fired also!!!!. I love the Steelers, but the GM needs to take control of the situation NOW!!!.

    It’s not Tomlin. It’s Haley you don’t try the change your QB’s way of playing when you are winning ball games. That is what Haley has done. Let Ben play the way he knows how and we will start winning again. FIRE HALEY!!!

    Your an idiot. Ben gets sacked so much because of the Steelers O-line. Most if not all other QB’s in the league would be injured constantly behind that line. Can’t think on his feet? EVERYONE who knows football would say the exact opposite, he makes something out of nothing for a living. This is one of the most ignorant posts I’ve ever read, and I’ve read thousands.

    Its obvious that Haley needs to be fired, Arian ran a good offensive scheme with the personnel he had. The owner wanted a different offense and he got one a loosing one

    I agree 110%. Tomlin needs to go. We need a coach that can get angry every now and again and get in some players faces when they lack drive. Tomlin just sits there and lets things go on. I wonder, is he watching the same pathetic offense I am?
