To say that the Pittsburgh Steelers offense has had a slow start to the 2013-14 NFL regular season would be an understatement and their struggles have landed offensive coordinator Todd Haley on the hot seat.
The team has been unable to get a running game going and the offensive line has struggled to keep quarterback Ben Roethlisberger on his feet.
With a big match up this weekend against the Chicago Bears on Sunday Night Football, Haley is urging his players to step up their game and ensure that the offense improves.
“I’m not happy with anything right now,” offensive coordinator Todd Haley said, via the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette. “Those guys know it, our guys up front know it, our receivers know it. To have an efficient run game, we need to do a better job across the board.”
The team could be getting a boost from tight end Heath Miller, who has been a full participant in practice this week, but they will need everyone to come together if they are really going to break out of their funk.
If the Steelers offense struggles again in Week 3, the cries for Haley to lose his job will be louder than ever.
That means Haley needs to call one of the best games he has ever called in his career to ensure the Steelers avoid an 0-3 start and to silence the fans from calling for his head.
